512 Audio by Warm Audio Tempest Large Diaphragm Condenser USB Microphone+Stand
Tempest is a true large-diaphragm studio microphone for capturing rich, high-fidelity audio with the convenience of modern USB-C connectivity. Drawing on the design and sound profile of the professional Warm Audio WA-47jr studio condenser mic, Tempest features a vintage-inspired, 34mm gold-plated condenser capsule and 24-bit / 48kHz resolution that brings pristine studio sound to your desktop. Tempest has built-in studio features that help keep your recording or stream on track including microphone gain, zero-latency headphone volume monitoring, and mute for full control over your sound, no software required. Because creator setups are rarely the same and frequently change, Tempest includes a premium desktop stand and professional shockmount for connecting to mic stand or boom arm. Engineered to capture polished, detailed audio for podcasts, livestreams, acoustic instruments and vocal performances, Tempest is the simplest way to get true studio sound.
The Studio, Simplified
Tempest delivers tight lows, nuanced midrange and pristine high end with a full 20Hz - 20kHz frequency response. From pristine streams and rich podcasts to stellar vocal performances, Tempest captures every detail with the richness and depth you’d expect from a studio microphone.
Streamlining the home recording setup, Tempest allows creators to professionally record and stream straight to their PC or Mac with modern USB-C connectivity, no additional audio interface or studio hardware required.
Professional Engineering, Modern Connectivity
At the center of the Tempest design is a true, large diaphragm, vintage-inspired 34mm gold-plated condenser capsule that shares design DNA with the best-selling WA-47Jr. mic from Warm Audio. With 24-bit, 48kHz resolution capabilities, Tempest captures high-fidelity audio with exceptional clarity and detail for modern hi-res recording.
Combining premium, professional components and decades of microphone design experience with modern USB-C connectivity, Tempest levels up the sound of your streams and recordings right out of the box.
