LCT 1040 - Innovative Tube/FET Condenser Microphone System

A wide range of outstanding tube tones with a single microphone.

The LCT 1040 is a microphone system with a comprehensive set of options to dial in the perfect sound – from your sweetspot. It all started with the vision of creating a studio microphone that allows you to easily adapt the sound you need for your session without switching to another microphone.

After ten years of development and with help from the international audio community, the LCT 1040 brings new levels to your production workflow. You’ll be more efficient and sound better than ever before.

It is exclusively built from premium components and features four distinct all-analog tube characteristics. Together with the blendable FET circuit, they allow you to effortlessly find the perfect sound for your session.

Acoustic perfection with a custom gold-sputtered 1" true condenser capsule. Comes with a detachable remote control unit for enhanced control over voicing, polar pattern & more.

  • Gold-sputtered 1" true condenser capsule
  • 100% analog signal path
  • Four distinct all-analog tube characteristics: Clear, Warm, Dark, Saturated
  • Independent FET circuit with dedicated XLR output
  • Both circuits can be seamlessly blended
  • Tube and FET microphone in one housing
  • Remote control and power supply unit
  • Low-cut filters and pre-attenuation settings
  • Seamless polar pattern control
  • Default/Reverse switch to freely determine the front of the microphone
  • LED status indicators
  • E88CC / 6DJ8 tube

Imagine getting the perfect sound every time.

Like a painter who uses his color palette, the LCT 1040 gives you the power to create the sound you envision.

  • Record with premium sound from high-end components and 1" true condenser capsule
  • Create the perfect sound for different vocalists and instruments using 4 all-analog tube characteristics and a crystal-clear FET circuit
  • Adjust all settings from your sweetspot via the remote control

Developed in close cooperation with world-renowned engineers and producers.

During the development process of the LCT 1040, Lewitt set out to see Grammy award-winning engineers and producers in their fantastic studios to put our prototypes to the test in real-life conditions.

The additional feedback from the global audio community ranging from friendly appreciation to brutal honesty was exactly what we needed to bring this exciting project to perfection.

Extra punch and precision with the blendable FET circuit.

Tweak your sound to perfection. You can dial in the FET circuit via the Circuit control whenever you're looking for that extra punch or precision for your voice or instrument.

Tweak all settings from your sweetspot via the remote control.

Set up the LCT 1040 in the recording room where the artist performs. Detach the remote control from the PSU and connect them via your standard 3-pin XLR cable. Now you can tweak all settings from your sweetspot via the remote control, ensuring a smooth-running session.

Save precious time, keep the creativity flowing, giving you exactly the sound you are looking for.

Seamless polar pattern control to get exactly what you want.

Set the directivity with the seamless polar pattern control of the LCT 1040, giving you exactly what you were looking for. Additionally, you can also freely define the front of the mic depending on your recording scenario.

  • Default sets the tube window as the front side of the mic.
  • Reverse sets the logo as the front of the mic. 

Two XLR outputs for full flexibility in post production.

To prepare you for all possible scenarios, the LCT 1040 features two XLR outputs with Neutrik connectors. 

  • The Mix output delivers the ratio set with the Circuit control, a combination of the tube and FET circuit.
  • The FET output delivers 100% pure FET independent from the Circuit control.

Shock mount with carbon fiber elements and quick release mechanism.

  • Quick release mechanisms for the microphone and the adjustment of the angle. 
  • Carbon fiber elements support efficient decoupling of the microphone.
  • Microphone can be turned by 360° when in shock mount.

Dual-layer magnetic pop filter for clean recordings.

The high-performance magnetic pop filter of the LCT 1040 protects your capsule from unwanted plosives and moisture. Its double-layer design perfectly integrates with the shock mount and ensures clean recordings with any vocalist or genre. 

The LCT 1040 is covered by a 10-year warranty.
