APOLLO 2 IN USE
Ideal for stereo recording, as an overhead for orchestra, choir or instrumental ensemble, or to capture the full character of a solo instrument in stereo or mono, Apollo 2 will give you natural, expansive results with perfect clarity in the highs and a balanced depth and fullness to the mids and lows.
Thanks to its phantom-powered circuit and custom-wound transformers, Apollo 2 requires very little gain and no EQ, so achieving the best results is completely effortless. Our Apollo 2, Sigma 2 and Delta 2 are the first ribbon mics in the world to incorporate RFI filters in their circuitry, which means the signal remains crystal clear, even if used live.
Sontronics Apollo 2 really will take your breath away and impart a quality to your recordings that you didn’t imagine possible!
Sontronics Apollo 2 is perfect for piano, orchestral and choral recordings and ideal for capturing the ambience and character of your entire recording space. It also works amazingly well as an overhead microphone for drums and percussion or for small instrument and vocal ensembles.
"I couldn't quite believe it when I first heard the Apollo on my piano, it's truly stunning! I also use it as room mic, which has totally transformed my recordings."
Ben Christophers, Artist/Songwriter/Producer
