    ARA - Overview

    Building on the incredible success of the AKG Lyra multi-pattern USB microphone, this smaller format two-pattern cardioid USB microphone will be a great addition to toolkits for a diverse set of applications and users.

    The AKG Ara two-pattern USB microphone lets podcasters, bloggers, gamers and musicians capture pro-quality, high-resolution sound right from their desktops. Whether you're streaming or recording, capture audio at 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for crystal-clear speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks. Ara's dual pickup patterns let you focus on a single voice or instrument or everyone in the room: Choose the directional Front (cardioid) pattern to focus on sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; use the Front + Back (omni) pattern to pick up sounds all around the mic, such as multiple speakers or a group of performers. Use Ara on a desktop, boom, stand or even on the go, with an optional adapter and your mobile device. It's plug-and-play simple, thanks to USB connectivity and class-compliant drivers.
