Color and Clarity
Featuring a distinct blend of color and clarity, the Soyuz 023 condenser is perfect for capturing everything from drums to amplifiers. With its forgiving top-end, smooth midrange, and thick lows, The 023 complements the aggressive tonalities of brighter instruments – and vocals – without sacrificing transients or detail.
A Heritage of Innovation, a Tradition of Excellence
The engineers at Soyuz have spent decades studying, servicing and building classic microphones; Soyuz’ machinists are the best in the world. This unique pool of knowledge, craft, and skill – combined with the ears of numerous musicians, producers and audio engineers – has culminated in the creation of the 023’s custom S23 capsule. A different design than that of the 017 series, the S23 is Soyuz’ reimagining of Lomo’s Russian version of the CK12 capsule: with its thick low-end, pronounced mid-range, and detailed top-end – one that is forgiving and flatters high-frequency sources rather than exaggerating them – we believe that we have improved upon a classic.
