Neumann D-01 Mutli-Pattern Digital Microphone - Nickel – No Longer Available

Multi-pattern digital microphone converting classic Neumann capsule sound to digital right in the microphone
MFR# 8482

Product Description

The Neumann D-01 Digital Microphone is a state-of-the-art large diaphragm digital condenser microphone with unparalleled sound quality and dynamic range. Equipped with 15 directional patterns, built-in A/D conversion, and an AES 42 output, the D-01 is the total package. Welcome to the next generation of Neumann microphones.


Neumann has a long-standing legacy of creating some of the most highly sought-after microphones of all time. With the D-01, Neumann are ushering in a new era of innovation. This fully digital large diaphragm condenser mic features a newly designed capsule with a linear response in all directional patterns. Equipped with on-board remote-controlled DSP functions such as digital gain, low-cut filter, peak limiter, compressor and de-esser, the D-01 has everything you need to cut a radio-ready vocal anywhere in the world.


Analog audio equipment adds a lot of great color and character to tracks, but by doing so it also causes signal degradation — something not found in digital audio. Since the digital revolution of the 80s, recording studios have been trading in their noisy old analog gear for crisp, clean digital components.

Now, with the D-01, you can digitize an audio signal at the capsule, allowing for unprecedented control and detail. Featuring a custom-designed A/D converter, the D-01 is capable of converting all 130 dB of dynamic range—that’s almost 10 dB more than mastering-grade converters!

Capable of recording with sample rates up to 192 kHz (24 bit), and equipped with a digital AES 42 output, the D-01 sets a new milestone in digital audio. Best of all, D-01 can be controlled right from your DAW using the RCS software.


In addition to sporting the highest dynamic range and best sound quality of any mic in its class, the D-01 offers a smooth and even response in all directional patterns—including omni, cardioid, figure-8, and twelve intermediate positions.

Perfect for a wide variety of applications, the Neumann D-01 is a legend in the making. Try it on vocals, drums, piano, acoustic guitar and other stringed instruments and experience the future of digital audio.


  • Extremely wide dynamic range: more than 130 dB
  • Neumann A/D conversion process
  • Pre-amps and external A/D converter are no longer necessary
  • Wide range of new functions through integrated digital signal processing
  • Control and monitoring of all microphone parameters and functions through Remote Control Software

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.

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.

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.
