Blue Microphones and PreSonus Partner for “Two to Tango”

July 1, 2013

A perfect pairing, Blue and PreSonus offer the renowned Kiwi microphone along with the new ADL 700 tube-driven channel strip in the “Two to Tango” promotion.

Giving you all the right moves, Blue Microphones (www.bluemic.com) and PreSonus (www.presonus.com) have partnered to bring you the Two to Tango promotion, which combines Blue’s premium large-diaphragm, multi-pattern condenser Kiwi microphone with the new PreSonus ADL 700 high-end, tube-driven channel strip. Both top-of-the-line products are specifically paired to create a remarkable solution for the highest-quality tracking chain, from capture to processing. Together, the Kiwi and ADL 700 deliver superior sound, moving together in perfect harmony for only $3,499.99 at participating U.S. dealers during the Two to Tango promotion, which runs from June 1 to September 30, 2013.

“The Kiwi and ADL 700 are a perfect match for premium recording, from capture through the entire processing chain. We are excited for the chance to offer customers such a high-end package at such a special price,” said Michael Huckler, VP of Sales for Blue Microphones. “With the incredibly rich sound of Kiwi’s B6 capsule, matched with the tube-driven sound of the ADL 700, it’s a great opportunity to come together with PreSonus to offer this pair to customers who want to achieve this premium sound.”

The Kiwi is a large diaphragm, solid-state, multi-pattern condenser microphone that features Blue’s renowned B6 capsule. Kiwi delivers the detail of its sonic signature all at once, with extended top end and accentuated mids and bottom end, without being too forward. Designed to set the standard for solid-state microphones, the Kiwi yields lush vocals, stunning acoustic guitar, gorgeous piano sounds, and more from nine different polar patterns (omni, cardioid, figure-8, and everything in between). It’s a perfect match for the ADL 700.

The ADL 700 channel strip combines a single-channel version of the two-channel, award-winning, high-end PreSonus ADL 600 Class A tube preamplifier with a fully variable, FET-based compressor and a four-band semi-parametric equalizer. This new channel strip provides separate balanced XLR mic, balanced XLR line, and a ¼” TS instrument inputs and a single, balanced XLR output. The dual-transformer design of the ADL 700 ensures low-noise operation, with maximum common-mode rejection. This results in an ultra-low-noise tube preamp with a big, warm, smooth, clear, distinctive sound. It’s the perfect partner for Kiwi.

The Two to Tango promotional bundle, MSRP $3,499.99, will be available at participating retailers from June 1 through August 31, 2013. For more information about Two to Tango visit www.TwoToTango.us.
