512 Audio Tempest Professional Large-Diaphragm USB Microphone

True large-diaphragm studio condenser USB microphone for professional recording and streaming featuring a vintage-inspired, 34mm gold-plated condenser capsule and 24-bit/48 kHz resolution that brings pristine studio sound to your desktop

MFR# 512-UPM

Product Description

The 512 Audio 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 shock-mount 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 20 Hz - 20 kHz 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, 48 kHz 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.

Built on legacy: 512 Audio is built on the professional legacy of vintage-inspired Warm Audio. Headquartered in Austin, TX, where creativity and innovation collide, our mission is to build professional gear for every creator who has something to say.

READY TO MAKE ANY SOURCE THE STAR

Tempest lets any source you put in front of it come through loud and clear. Whether it’s voiceover, vocals, or a singer with their guitar, the fixed cardioid pickup pattern captures what’s in front of the mic and rejects surrounding ambient noise.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
