Pearl legendary rectangular capsule serves several purposes in TL 44. First of all, the capsules are mounted back-to-back and the XLR connextor is 5-pin with two discrete output channels.
Connect the two outputs to two mixer channels or two inputs on your soundcard. When recording a mono sound, such as vocals or a small acoustic instrument, direct one capsule to the sound source. By configuring your mixer/DAW accordingly, you can obtain cardioid, omni or figure-of-eight pattern characteristics, all continuously variable. And even during mixdown, after recording.
You can also position the TL 44 with its capsules angled 90 degrees from a stereo sound source and obtain a 180 degrees XY stereo image. Add to this a very flat frequency response with a neutral low end, and it's easy to see why the TL 44 is an ideal microphone for recording anything from a vocalist to a church organ.
The TL 44 is finished in black ED lacquer with an illuminating LED confirming 48v phantom power.
