German Magazine Gives Oceanus and Clarion all Positives!

The first reviews of the Oceanus and Clarion are in. Who better to be the first to judge these new microphones than those whom all microphones are measured. We know what we think, but what did Martin Person of Keys Magazine in Germany have to say?

Head on over to or pick up the May, 2009 issue to read their opinion of our new mics. So what’s the downside? For now, you’ll have to read German.

It’s a great review.

New Vocal Samples at Lauten Audio

We have added three new songs to our "Lauten Sessions" that offer vocal samples of our Oceanus and the Horizon microphones.

These clips feature two songs using the Horizon on Chris McIntyre's lead vocals and the Oceanus on lead vocals for Amalea Lutsenko's song "Ragdoll".

These sound samples were recorded, mixed and mastered at the Grande Prairie Regional College. All songs mixed and mastered by Chris McIntyre. Individual artists are credited on the sessions page.

We would like to give thanks to everyone from Grande Prairie Regional College who helped with the recordings.

So, head on over to and give them a listen! You can find these new clips under the "Vocals in the mix" heading in the "Lauten Sessions" section of our website.

"Here’s a sound you can build the rest of your mix around..."

"...doesn’t need to be propped up either by a preamp or by a ‘fix it’ chain..."
