Milab DC-196 Large Diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone
Swedish-designed and handmade, Milab microphones are recognised around the world for their extraordinary studio prowess and reliability.
MilabDC-196is a compact and versatile studio microphone with different polar patterns, low self-noise and excellent SPL handling.
The DC-196 is a versatile studio tool built around Milab’s rectangular capsule (the 2900). It offers low noise, selectable patterns (cardioid, omni, bidirectional), excellent SPL handling and an extremely smooth off-axis response – all in a very compact format. In fact, the DC-196 is one of the smallest large-diaphragm microphones ever produced.
Hand-crafted in Sweden, DC-196 shines on transient-rich sources like acoustic instruments and, thanks to the unique properties of the rectangular capsule, it excels in recording situations where a smooth off-axis response is crucial. This includes string ensembles and choirs, but also stereo setups like X/Y and Blumlein where large-diaphragm microphones are often avoided.
