USA - MXL focussed on the complete Revelation line during Believe in Music Week, including its original Revelation, the Revelation II, which was announced earlier this year, as well as the most recent Revelation Mini FET.
Borrowing concepts from the renowned Revelation tube microphone, the REV II offers musicians the clarity and versatility of the classic Revelation but is more accessible to musicians on a budget, says the company.
Offering the itube mic sound, the REV II is designed for capturing ‘crystal-clear vocals and instrumentals for a variety of genres’. Although geared towards studio use, the Revelation II is a versatile and flexible solution that is suitable for both home and studio recordings, and its simple set up makes it an appropriate solution for recording while on the road. Adding to the mic’s versatility, the mic’s polar pattern selection is virtually limitless, controllable by a variable pattern control knob.
“With the REV II, our customers are falling in love with its classic sound all over again,” says Trevor Fedele, director at MXL Microphones. “Today, with most artists working remotely, the last thing we would want is the musical element to be lost. By making high-quality solutions more accessible, we aim to contribute to a seamless experience for both in-person and virtual productions. The MXL Revelation II is sure to take your next performance up a few notches - whether it’s in-person, live-streamed or pre-recorded.”
When Hunter Wolfe, guitarist and vocalist of Born Crooked, was forced to switch gears at the beginning of the pandemic, he knew he could turn to MXL to support his transition to recording from home. “We have a number of new songs that were slated to be recorded in-studio, but instead, we are recording them from our homes and MXL has been a part of this process every step of the way,” he says. “When I first received the REV II, I plugged it straight into my DAW and tracked without any EQ, COMP or pre/post processing to see what the mic sounded like on its own. This was the first time that I ever truly liked the sound I was hearing from my vocal track without having to add processing. The mic is rich, full-bodied with a clarity that I haven’t found in any other mic.”
