LeafAudio - Magnetic Contact Microphone

Product information "LeafAudio - Magnetic Contact Microphone"

With contact microphones any surface or object becomes a canvas for sonic exploration. These microphones offer a unique perspective that traditional recording methods simply can't match. You can literally listen to materials, plants or objects from inside the material. As humans we are used to certain hearing perspective: sound waves normally travel through air before they hit the diaphragm of our ear or the microphone. Picking up vibrations directly from the object changes the hearing perspective and that's your best trick to record interesting and sometimes abstract sounds.

The new version is now magnetic! It comes in a neoprene zip-bag for save travelling. Different versions for different recorder-inputs belong to the past. The new one now features an audio jack instead of a fixed cable, what a) works as an acoustic decoupling from the cable itself and b) you have the possibilitiy at hand to work with 1/4" and 1/8" inputs with only one contact microphone. Two cables are included (1/8" to 1/8" and 1/8" to 1/4"). It also comes with a universal holder and strong rubber bands, what makes it possible to attach it basically everywhere.
