Canadian team Kaotica was at AES where they introduced the Eyeball, a new isolation system for studio condenser microphones.
The Eyeball is a foam sphere in which the microphone can fit. The sphere has a rounded opening where you can put an anti-pop filter, so this is where it will capture your voice from. The special design allows for recording vocals in any space without any special acoustic processing, without capturing the background noise and avoid eventual phase cancellations.
The system is compatible with most of the available condenser microphones (1.5" to 2.75" capsules) and can be mounted on a spider-style support. Cardioid microphones are recommended.
Kaotica also adds on their website that this system allows for increased volume, frequency response (0 – 30kHz), harmonic content and THD performances, for the sound that is captured in the Eyeball does not spread in the air like in a vocal booth. They also ensure that it does not color the sound.
The Eyeball can be purchased at kaoticaeyeball.com for $199.99.
