Soyuz Launcher Microphone Gain Booster

In-line microphone pre-amp adding character and color while also boosting gain by 25 dB
MFR# Launcher

Product Description

This is no ordinary ivory box. Imagine a little box that could bring that old school magic sound to recordings made with a common dynamic mic and an ordinary interface. Impossible? Not anymore. Introducing the Soyuz Launcher Microphone Gain Booster.

That Magic Little Box

The Launcher is not meant to be transparent and clean like other “gain boosters” on the market. Imagine taking a piece of a vintage analog console and putting it in a magic little box. It’s no longer a fantasy with the Launcher.

If you’ve ever struggled to get “that” sound when plugging your mic into an interface without an external preamp, then struggle no more. The Launcher makes your mics sound like they’re running through a vintage console– even when they’re plugged into a simple interface or PA system.

Dream in Color

The Launcher imparts a truly special character and color that will bring your sound to the next level. With its custom hand wound transformer, the Launcher’s warm character will forever change the way you look at dynamic and ribbon microphones.

Prepare For Take Off

Whether on the stage, in the booth, or in your bedroom, the Launcher gives your microphones the ability to perform incredibly well with virtually any interface or preamp by optimizing the sound of your source, boosting your gain by 26 dB, and lowering the amount of audible noise in your signal chain.

Take Your Sound With You

If you’re a musician, home or professional engineer, podcaster, voiceover artist, or just someone who loves making videos, the Launcher will take your sound to the next level. You don’t need a huge studio to have a huge sound– the Launcher will get you there no matter the time or place.

Countdown to Perfect Sound

The Launcher is the culmination of years of beta testing and feedback from real musicians and engineers around the world. The launcher’s custom transformer and proprietary circuit have become one of Soyuz’s most closely guarded secrets. Every Launcher is hand-built in the Soyuz facility.

Does exactly what it says it does and does it well. Brought life and some rich color to my SM7B!

By Joseph P on September 13, 2021

Wow, this thing is a rocket launcher!! And the secret sauce is the way it colors snd adds a slight bit of grit and sweetness to your mic. My Shure Beta 58 punches out and soars with wings! Game changer.

It made my SM7 a much better mic.

By Ben C on February 10, 2021

Put this on one of three Shure SM58 vocal mics at a writers night here in Nashville for comparison. The Soyuz Launcher provided a significant boost in signal - had to reduce the gain on our soundcraft board from the 12 o’clock position to the 9 o’clock position. There was a big improvement in clarity as well. More high-end than I was expecting but, not harsh. Overall, for both male & female vocals, the SM58 & Soyuz Launcher combo ($320) sounded better than my Neumann KMS105 ($600). No phantom power required.

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.
