Blue Microphones in Westlake Village, Calif., announces that its Reactor (MSRP $499) multi-pattern, large diaphragm condenser microphone is now available at authorized Blue dealers. Reactor unites Blue’s proprietary preamp circuit and innovative pattern selection method (cardioid, omni or bi-directional) with a swiveling capsule head for precise positioning in multiple mic setups.

“Reactor takes microphone technology and design to the next level, combining Blue’s high-quality sound capture with intuitive pattern switching and physical microphone design,” says John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “With Reactor, we are excited to offer multiple patterns and high-end audio capture to a wider audience, along with making multiple mic setups more accessible.”

Blue Microphones states that Reactor’s capsule technology draws from the design of Blue’s B6 capsule, and offers a full sonic signature with a detailed top end, a textured midrange and a full bottom end. Reactor is built upon Blue’s premium large-diaphragm condenser capsule design, along with a custom preamp platform that provides low noise and distortion. Reactor uses fully discrete, Class-A solid-state components for high-quality, professional recording performance.

Featuring a swiveling design, Reactor’s capsule head rotates across a 90-degree range, with resistance to hold the head in a precise position. For multiple mic setups, such as those found in M/S or X/Y recording, Reactor’s swivel head allows for accuracy and fine-tuning of setup geometry and microphone tone. Reactor offers LED backlit pattern indicators and a magnifying optic.

Reactor comes with a high-quality metal carrying case for protection and storage, along with a custom-designed shock-mount and a custom magnetic pop filter.
