Microphone arm and new USB midi cable

Sontronics - ELEVATE and XLR-USB. Perfect hold and lower latency?

Published 8:00 am on Saturday 26th September 2020 by Beat Magazine

Sontronics ELEVATE

The new Sontronics ELEVATE is a desktop-mounted broadcast-style arm that can be either clamped to a work surface or permanently fixed in place. With three lockable articulated joints, ELEVATE will enable your microphone to be suspended from above or tilted up towards you, helping to create a clear workspace for your laptop, tablet or script.

Each of ELEVATE’s arms has a channel to accommodate your cable, plus locking clips to keep your set-up looking neat and tidy, while the base allows the stand to rotate easily so you can simply move the mic to one side when you’ve finished using it.

Made from premium-grade powder-coated aluminum, ELEVATE is extremely light, but very sturdy (holds up to 1Kg), and to make it compatible with both EU & US mic threads, ELEVATE is supplied with a 3/8” to 5/8” thread adaptor.
