Sennheiser MK 4 Digital Studio Condenser Recording Microphone


The MK product range focuses Sennheiser’s experience in the pro microphone segment to create high-quality condenser models at budget prices. Technology previously reserved for studio experts is now available for any budget. The MK 4 digital unites the high-resolution sound of a true condenser mic with the simplicity and finesse of digital solutions. The sensitive A/D conversion is provided by high-end Apogee technology. Be it in the rehearsal room or in interviews: The MK 4 digital is easy to handle and can be used with iOS devices and with laptops.

The MK 4 digital is based on the MK 4, Sennheiser’s established large diaphragm true-condenser microphone. Built in is a high-end Apogee AD-converter, which can easily compete with studio quality USB audio interfaces. The microphone connects directly to iOS devices via Lightning cable and to Apple & PC computers via USB cable. With the MK 4 Digital, you can create professionalgrade material at the push of a button by simply plugging the mic in, starting the app and recording. The MK 4 Digital can be used with common media production programs such as Logic Pro X, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Pro Tools and Ableton Live as well as with iOS recording apps like GarageBand and Apogee MetaRecorder. The MK 4 digital also works with Music Memos and any Core Audio apps on iOS and Mac. It works with ASIO (with freeware driver Asio4all), MME /Direct Sound and WASAPI-based audio applications for PCs.
