Original Vintage Valve Condenser Microphone with nine remotely-controlled polar patterns.
Nine different directional characteristics can be selected by means of a remote control unit without any change in frequency response or sensitivity. In addition to three basic characteristics, omni-directional, cardioid and bi-directional, six intermediate patterns (including hypercardioids) are available. The S 12 control unit is connected to the N 12 power supply unit by the RL 12 remote control cable, and the power supply unit to the microphone by the MK 12 mic cable.
Frequency Range: 20 to 20,000 cps
Frequency Response: ± 2 dB related to published curve
Directional Characteristics (nine different positions): omni-directional.
Cardioid: better than 20 dB front-to-back ratio at 180° sound incidence,
bi-directional: 20 dB front-to-back ratio
Sensitivity: 1.0 mV/µbar (–60 dB re 1 V/dyne/cm2), unloaded (200 ohms)
Equivalent Noise Level: less than 20 dB
Impedance: 50/200 ohms (change solder lugs)
Tube Complement: 1 x 6072, 6.3 volts DC filament voltage,
120 volts DC plate voltage
Mains Connection: 110/125/145/220/245 volts AC at 50/60 cps

...trying it out. It will load VST2 if they're universal binary and run in AS, but you have to run C12 in Rosetta to get anything that is still Intel only. I'm also unable to load my SugarBytes synths even though they're AS. Whether you should wait or not depends on what plugins you use. Some...
...to point construction on a cast acrylic turret board. Its construction is a hybrid design more similar to the AKG C12's in which acrylic turret boards were mounted inside the microphone's frame, and point to point circuit connections are soldered. The original 251 construction uses plastic that tends to break down over the years....
