An array of premium features – patented Variable-D™, humbucking coil, dual personality switch, high-output neodymium magnet structure
Anaheim, Cal., January 13, 2011: Launching globally at Winter NAMM 2011, the RE320 – the latest addition to the Electro-Voice RE Performance Group of wired microphones – culls key features of the venerable RE20 and RE27N/D Broadcast Group products into an exceptionally versatile studio and live performance mic. Engineered for stellar performance in virtually any imaginable application, the RE320 delivers excellent results when mic’ing vocals or instruments in the studio or on stage.
Designed to meet the demanding needs of project and pro studio operators, live and studio performers and engineers, as well as podcasters and broadcasters at any level, the RE320 brings heritage Electro-Voice technology and performance to bear in an exciting and versatile new MI product.
The RE320’s key features include Electro-Voice’s remarkable Variable-D™ proximity control technology for tight, bold, expressive, and consistent tonal performance; their patented humbucking coil for noiseless operation; and a high-output neodymium magnet structure capsule that delivers fast and accurate transient response and pronounced high-frequency detail.
Rounding out the feature set is the new “dual personality” switch which essentially creates two mics in one. One setting of the switch engages a response curve that is ideal for voice and most instrument micing, while the other switch position activates a response curve designed specifically for kick drums with dips and peaks exactly where kick drums need some attention.
Regarding the RE320’s “dual personality” switch, Electro-Voice’s Rick Belt comments, “We’ve known for many years that the RE20 is sought-after for mic’ing kick drums, despite its broadcast vocal ‘original purpose.’ Adding the kick drum curve switch position as a key RE320 feature reinforces its usefulness as a specialty instrument mic, in addition to its outstanding performance on voice and low-mid to upper-register instruments in the alternate switch position.”
As a new member of Electro-Voice’s RE Performance Group, the RE320 joins the RE200 small diaphragm condenser, the RE410 and RE510 handheld condenser vocal mics, and the RE920 clip-on condenser in an outstanding lineup of premium-grade performance microphones.
MSRP: $499.95 with an estimated street price of $299.00 USD.
