Blue Mics has unveiled its new Reactor microphone at Winter NAMM 2011.

Reactor fuses a pattern selection method with a swiveling capsule head for positioning, and features Blue's condenser capsule, Class A solid state components, and preamp for live switching between patterns (Cardioid, Omni or Figure-8). To facilitate use in multiple mic setups (like Mid/Side, X-Y), Reactor's capsule head rotates a range of 90 degrees for positioning in tight spaces and pattern adjustability.


Reactor's recording pattern selection features LED backlighting on the pattern indicators and a magnifying element to compliment its design.
