M-Audio’s Nova cardioid condenser microphone, which is now shipping, features a 1.1-inch diameter diaphragm of evaporated gold and is capable of capturing frequencies from 20 to 18k Hz with +/-1dB tolerance across the entire frequency range. The Class-A solid-state electronics have a 14dB equivalent noise level (A-weighted) and exhibit 0.5% THD at 128 dB SPL.

Nova is geared for recording vocals, guitar, piano and large ensembles, as well as capturing ambience and room sound. Nova’s tight frequency response is useful for stereo recordings: using two mics in an X-Y pair or a single mic as the mid in an M-S pair.

Nova has an MSRP of $129.95. The unit comes with a swivel mount and a soft case.
