Germany-based Analog Audio GmbH will distribute full line of Lauten Audio microphones

Santa Clara, CA, January 14, 2008 – Lauten Audio, a high-end microphone maker, has announced a new distribution agreement with Germany-based Analog Audio GmbH. Under the terms of the agreement, Analog Audio GmbH will serve as the sole distributor in Germany for the Santa Clara, California-based company‘s entire microphone line, including their highly successful Horizon tube microphone and three new models. The entire microphone line will be on display at the 2008 Winter NAMM show in booth #6983.

“Being introduced to Lauten Audio at the AES 2007 show in New York we immediately saw the potential in the Horizon tube microphone and the three new models,” says Peter Brigel, Sales Director for Analog Audio. “Lauten Audio microphones not only fit perfectly into our portfolio of high-end professional audio products, they also have great potential to fill a gap in the mid-price market.”

Lauten Audio‘s first commercially available product, the Horizon tube microphone, is a hand crafted boutique quality microphone that has proven to be a must-have for many recordists. Lauten Audio‘s new microphones include the FC-357, the ST-221, and the LT-381. The FC-357 is a solid-state multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone, designed for recordists looking for very clean and natural sound reproduction. The ST-221 is a small diaphragm tube microphone that will be packaged in pairs. The ST-221 combines the characteristics of the small diaphragm and the tube, making it an ideal choice for recording instruments. Finally, the highly anticipated LT-381 features a newly designed large dual-diaphragm capsule, new-old-stock military grade pentode input and triode output circuit, and variable omni, cardioid and figure-8 polar patterns. The LT-381 is designed to be a high-performance vocal microphone that produces incredibly full and detailed recordings.

“We are very excited that Analog Audio GmbH is distributing for Lauten Audio in Germany,” says Brian Loudenslager, founder of Lauten Audio. “They are a very well established and highly respected distributor of high-end professional audio products. We firmly believe that the extremely talented team at Analog Audio GmbH will give Lauten Audio the representation and commitment we desire.”
