Features The World's First 'People's Microphone' - Cardioid Studio Microphone with all-new Ridyon™ Capsule Aston Element is a large diaphragm active studio microphone developed, by public vote, to offer unprecedented performance. Its unique Ridyon™ capsule takes the best features of dynamic, condenser and ribbon mic tech, without the drawbacks each of these traditional favourites often suffer from. Element’s backlit LED logo badge glows Aston purple when the active mic is receiving the 48v phantom power it requires (The LEDs are dual-purpose, also functioning as an intrinsic part of the audio signal path). Anechoic tests by NTi Audio, the world’s leading authority in scientific audio measurement, have rated the new mic at 3.8 dBA (A-weighted) making Element the world’s quietest studio microphone! It also has the widest frequency response of any electromagnetic (ribbon or moving coil) microphone ever made. Element is supplied with a proprietary magnetic Pop Filter which all-but eliminates unwanted plosives and ‘esses’. It automatically attaches in seconds, in exactly the correct position for use, and the magnets used to achieve this are shielded from the mic’s capsule to ensure the audio remains completely free of artefacts. You can turn the pop shield upside down on the mic when recording instruments, so you don’t have to keep putting it away between takes. Also included is a custom Shock Mount, designed specifically for Element, which clips quickly and easily to the mic. Element is covered by a full 10 year warranty. Project Element In a world-first, Aston Element was developed in conjunction with the musicians and producers who would ultimately be using it. More than 4000 people signed-up to participate in a series of blind listening tests, the results of which guided the Aston engineers in modifying the prototypes, until Element was outperforming not only direct rival mics but some far costlier options too.
