Whether you’re working on solo podcasts or recording shows with a guest, the Podcaster Essentials bundle ensures that you can get set up and rolling in no time. There’s no need to bother with driver installation or a separate audio interface; the Lyra provides simple plug-and-play compatibility with Mac/Windows computers and iOS/Android mobile devices.
AKG Lyra Multipattern USB Condenser Microphone
Visually inspired by the studio classic C414 condenser mic, the AKG Lyra is a multipattern USB condenser microphone offering high-definition audio, powerful versatility, and superb simplicity while staying stylish for on-screen appearances. 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion, a built-in shockmount, and internal diffusion yield pristine sonic quality for your recordings, whether you’re creating online content, podcasting, vlogging, live streaming, or producing music.
The Lyra’s proprietary Adaptive Capsule Array utilizes four condenser capsules to give you four user-friendly capture modes—front, front and back, tight stereo, and wide stereo—to handle scenarios such as voiceovers, two-person podcasts, side-by-side interviews, studio/live performances, and more. Just connect the Lyra to your Mac/Windows computer or iOS/Android mobile device, and plug in headphones to the 3.5mm port on the bottom of the Lyra; its plug-and-play setup means that there are no drivers to install or software settings to configure.
Easily optimize your signal via the Lyra’s onboard controls, which give you intuitive access to the pattern selection, mic gain, headphone volume, and mute switch. Take advantage of the integrated desktop stand and its built-in cable management to place the Lyra on a table, or remove the desktop stand to mount the Lyra on a boom arm or standard mic stand.
