Line Audio OM1 Omni Condenser Microphone

This omnidirectional microphone has a natural, detailed and balanced response. Perfect for natural reproduction of acoustical instruments such as members of the bowed and plucked string-families, grand piano, brass, drum overhead, percussion, overhead choir and voice -with a minimum of colouration. The response is very smooth and flat, with fine off axis performance.

It's suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a pricetag at the hobbyist level!

The small size (about the same as a normal XLR plug) makes it easy to place, without being in the way. Its size and black colour makes it close to invisible on stage. Delivered with foam windsheild and microphone holder (clip).

During manufacturing each capsule is measured, selected and trimmed by us to close tolerances. Out of range capsules are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuitry, results in a response with a unique flatness. These are quality microphones made for demanding situations.

These little mics live up to their excellent reputation for neutral high quality at an amazing price and partner well with the versatile CM3 (and now CM4) wide cardioid mics. They do need an InVision shock mount when used on a floor stand and I would advise keeping iPhones well clear to avoid the possibility of interference.

Amazing.

A cracking cheap omni. Sounds amazing, weighs almost nothing, and is only about 1.5x the size of the average male XLR connector. Ludicrously good!

Opens up a whole new realm for live recording.

Amazing microphone! The OM1's frequency response is unbelievably flat but, unlike conventional omnis (especially of the measurement-mic, electret-based variety), the OM1s also have remarkably low self-noise. This makes them ideally suited to live recording of quiet sources, such as small ensembles. For the last year I have been trying a spaced pair plus a central CM3 (also from from Line Audio and PinkNoise) to experiment with a Decca-Tree-Revisited setup - this has allowed a small array to be mounted high up on a (relatively) unobtrusive stand to record live concerts of Early Music without too much visual intrusion for the audience. Because the OM1s are so flat and uncoloured, it is surprisingly easy to play around with the sound stage in post. Any compensation for gain differences between individual mics has virtually no effect on the sound field depth or stereo imaging.
These tiny microphones would be ideal for inconspicuous live recordings in any situation, but for detailed and complex sound sources there is nothing to compare for ten times the price.
