Тhis high-quality dual-membrane large-diaphragm condenser microphone captures vocals and instruments with pristine clarity, depth and detail, making it the perfect starting point for emulating a plethora of timeless studio microphones.
Edge Duo’s dual-membrane capsule design feeds two separate XLR output channels via the included Y-cable, which allow the Duo to accurately emulate the characteristic on- and off-axis response of each mic for true multi-dimensional mic modeling.
Housed in a specially designed low-resonance body with a sleek matte black finish, Edge Duo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered dual-membrane capsule.

Edge Duo is able to call on an extensive and ever-expanding collection of classic legendary mic emulations, with more models soon to be released.
Revolutionary design favored by top musicians, engineers and producers
The CU-44x MK II has a revolutionary design featuring two titanium matched capsules for low and high, with 100 volt internal power for super wide dynamic range and headroom. The transformerless design, with a slight bump above 14kHz gives a very pleasing air in the high end with remarkable transient response. Perfect for vocals, overheads, and acoustic instruments delivering a very pleasing natural sound. Match this with a modern preamp for ultra-low noise and a sonic clarity that is immediately obvious to the ear.
The CU-44X MK II compares very favorably with the older vintage mics in the bottom end but has a much more pleasing high end. This mic has a proven record of great recordings on vocals or instruments.
The unique dual-capsule Sanken CU-44X Mk II sports a versatile cardioid pattern ideal for a wide range of recordings. The ability to withstand high SPLs insures clean, distortion-free recording on explosive percussion and other instruments with harsh dynamics. When used in pairs, the result is impeccably clear stereo imaging.
The CU-44X MkII features a specially designed double titanium capsule with a unique mounting scheme that guarantees phase coherency – a larger one for the bass and a smaller one for the high frequencies. They are immune to the effects of humidity and temperature change, resulting in totally consistent response, regardless of the recording environment.
The CU-44X Mk II’s frequency response is totally flat – on axis, at 90 degrees – essential in maintaining sonic transparency.
