Soyuz 013 Tube SDC Mic Pair on Acoustic Guitar & Piano

In this video, Sound Pure pro audio specialist Chuck Giardino runs us through the brand new Soyuz 013 Tube small-diaphragm condenser mic set. We tested a pair of 013 Tubes on acoustic guitar and grand piano with a little help from our very own Michael Buckley. In this demo, Michael plays "Confession," a song he wrote and recorded with his band Ekiim Ariara, for their 2015 debut album, "Dead Man's Song" (available now on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp). Note: The vocal performance was recorded with an sE Electronics RNT Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone.

Manufacturer's Description from Soyuz

The 013 TUBE small diaphragm condenser melds audio precision and transformer color into a combination of unparalleled musicality. Best-in-class transient response and the ability to capture precise detail make them ideal as drum overheads as well as for the recording of acoustic guitar, piano, choral ensembles, strings, orchestras: in short, any application in which clarity is necessary and character desired.

 

The 013 Series combines the best elements of classic SDC designs with a unique character of its own. Both tube and FET versions capture sound with precision while imparting a warm sonic signature. The smooth top end and a midrange accuracy that is musical – never clinical – enable the recording of complex, transient-rich instruments and sounds that span the frequency spectrum and dynamic range (a -20db pad is included, correctly placed in the signal path between capsule and electronics) in a warm, pleasing way.

 

The 013 Series is available in either FET or tube circuit models; both feature identical capsules and form factors. While they also share similar, natural sound profiles, there are subtle differences between them. The 013 FET’s transistor circuit captures transients with a slightly faster response; the 013 TUBE has a smooth top-end perfect for situations in which a touch of coloration is desirable.

 

The engineers at Soyuz have spent decades studying, servicing and building classic microphones; this unique pool of knowledge, craft and skill – combined with the ears of numerous musicians, producers and audio engineers – has culminated in the creation of the 013 Series’ custom S13 capsule. The S13, with its detailed top end, warm mid-range, and balanced low-end possesses a remarkable ability to capture source material with an accuracy that is always flattering, never harsh.
