Lewitt recently gave me the LCT 640 TS to try out, so I took it to the legendary United Studios to record some music.
United is a fantastic studio with a lot of history (Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and many more) and has a beautiful sounding and huge live room.
I spent the day there, tracking bass, upright bass, guitar, drums and vocals with some great musicians. We tried a wide variety of different micing techniques, which the LTC 640 TS lends itself to for various reasons. From YX configuration to Mid-side, direct micing and a lot more.
Watch the full version of my review here:
I was very impressed with this microphone. Not only does it provide an amazing and very balanced sound, and therefore lends itself to recording almost any instrument or sound-source. It also innovates the way we record music:
The LCT 640 TS records both sides of it’s capsule simultaneously and independently, which allows you to capture stereo recordings or blend your room-sound with the main recording. – All in one microphone!
Because it’s only one capsule, the two tracks are perfectly in phase.
But that’s not all: Lewitt have designed a plugin specifically for this microphone, which will allow you to change the polar pattern of the microphone in post production. With the “Polarizer” plugin you are able to blend the two channels whichever way you prefer, enhance room-sound and adjust the polar patters from cardioid to omni and figure 8.
This plugin gives you ultimate flexibility to shape your sound. You could probably spend weeks trying all of the different recording techniques, patterns and blends you can use with this microphone.
And you can start today! We’re providing all of the recordings we captured at United as a free download.
You can listen to each of the track in detail, download the Polarizer plugin and play around with the different patterns and settings.
This is an amazing opportunity to study what this microphone can do on some first-class recordings.
I hope you enjoyed this review and recording session. Please feel free to mix the song for yourself!

Nice video and that mic with that plugin is a really really cool thing! I hope I win! 😉 Nice room as well. Is she singing for all us mixers with our broken DAW´s? (just kidding! :-)) I´t´s a great song as well and a great performance! I do though miss the room sound in the last take with “only” the close mics, that would have been wonderfull together!

The possibilities are open-ended…very impressive “step-up” from what we would consider to be conventional recording from a capture-point sense, as from a mic. This then would be “written in stone” as its “captured on tape”; without the ability to modify any of the parameters that were presented to the mic. This mic…changes all the rules!
Hi @gregberneshawi:disqus! Agreed amazing mic! Best of luck to you and everyone else Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

It would fit well in my studio (or someones elses). I have a Shure SM 56, a Shure SM7B and a Rode NT2-A and very soon a Lewitt LCT 640 TS? 🙂
It captures the sound with a “legendary” touch, I think, very nice.
Hi @peterstedt:disqus perfect! Sounds like it could be an amazing addition for you and everyone else! Haha Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

@plap-disqus-d3d9446802a44259755d38e6d163e820:disqus Need to buy a new vocal mic. Would you recommend a 450, a 550, or the 640 TS because of it’s unique “stereo” capabilities that can also be used on drum kits, pianos, etc. Is the 640 TS as strong as a vocal mic as the 550? Obviously, the 940 would be the best choice as a vocal mic, but gotta land a couple of nice gigs before I stretch for that one. Thanks, as always. Best …..
