What makes the PD-70 different?

We’ve leveraged our 25-year legacy of studio recording hardware design to create a dynamic vocal mic that captures the full range of human hearing with warmth and clarity. Its end-address configuration and cardioid pickup pattern ensures that it only records what you want it to. The low-end of your voice will be captured with weight and authority, while the PD-70s gentle 5k-10k boost delivers an exquisite sense of presence, articulation, and breath. A custom-designed dynamic capsule ensures superior off-axis rejection, and its hefty metal chassis ensures long life while minimizing handling noise.

Tank and the Bangas, “Ants”

We recorded Tank and the Bangas live in the courtyard of Kevin Aucoin's French Quarter Studio. A perfect example of the PD-70’s excellent capture of female vocals with a wide range of dynamics.

Alfred Banks, "The Waive"

Also filmed in Kevin Aucoin's French Quarter Studio Courtyard located in New Orleans, LA. The PD-70 is an ideal microphone for dynamic rap vocals, thanks to its plosive-reducing windscreen.

The Hitchhiker, “Glad it’s not Her, Glad it’s Not You”

Here’s a great example of the PD-70 shining on The Hitchhiker’s lead rock vocals, recorded in a backyard on a hot Baton Rouge summer night.
