This true condenser microphone is particularly excellent at increasing the resolution of voices, singing and acoustic instruments and giving them a special warmth. The MK 4 digital combines the enormous demands of modern studio technology with: Simplicity. Simply connect it – that’s all there is to it.

The heart of the MK 4 digital is the gold-plated 1-inch large true condenser capsule. It is handcrafted in the same clean room as the professional product ranges MKH and MKE. It’s on this membrane where the characteristic warmth and fine brilliance begins that is so typical for recordings made with well-adjusted condenser microphones. Our technology is so sophisticated that fine-tuning becomes absolutely unnecessary. The MK 4 simply fits any recording situation.

Even the best output signal is worthless, if state-of-the-art technology is not used to convert it into digital values. Apogee is a master at this conversion. The integrated PureDigital technology with 24 bit / 96 kHz resolution meets even the most stringent professional demands.
