In this NAMM 2016 update James talks to James Young from Aston Microphones about their new mics the Origin and Spirit and their new portable vocal booth the Halo. Keep an eye on Pro Tools Expert for more NAMM 2016 updates.
Aston Origin Microphone
The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a one inch (1″) gold evaporated capsule. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformer-less circuitry using only the best components such as WIMA capacitors, the same devices you’ll find in boutique microphones costing far more than the Origin.
