Lampifier Offered Wired Microphones with Built-In Sound Processing

The Lampifier Company offered a range of wired microphones that have a phantom-powered audio-enhancing processor located inside the microphone handle. The programmable sound processor is designed to enhance the microphone's performance with applications including Pro Concert Vocal, Intimate Stage Vocal, Podium/Lectern, Acoustic Guitar, Vocal Ensemble, and Instrument Amplifier.

"Lampifier microphones significantly reduce total sound system cost by processing the sound inside the microphone," said Gary Osborne, the Lampifier microphones' inventor. "A Lampifier microphone with its internal sound processor costs about the same as an ordinary professional microphone but typically outperforms with regard to clarity, articulation, and loudness while being resistant to feedback."

The company said no extra patch cables or outboard sound processors are required; users can just "plug in and play." The internal processor is designed to self-adjust to the incoming sound, making program adjustments by the user "generally unnecessary." The user also can reprogram the processor to use the microphone in other applications or customize the microphone to personal preferences.

The Lampifier 711 is a uniquely cutting-edge professional dynamic mic which features an internal sound processing unit

The Lampifier uses light pulses emitted from a tiny lamp to regulate the microphone's built-in compressor. This enables the Lampifier to nicely accommodate the dynamics of a wide range of singers and instruments, as well as reduce plosives and excessive sibilance. Because the Lampifier technology does such a great job of regulating audio input (the compressors attack/release time and ratio change with the incoming signal) there is far less of a need to adjust the microphones levels and EQ on an external soundboard.

That's right, the sound is optimized entirely within the microphone itself. In addition to controlling compression, the internal sound processor also boosts the warmth and clarity of instruments and vocals while intelligently blocking low-level feedback and unwanted background noise, allowing desired sounds to cut through the mix. The internal sound processor comes pre-programmed for general use but is also fully customizable and can be reprogrammed to suit a wide range of instrumental and vocal applications. Reprogramming the microphone is as easy as changing the order of shunts (jumper pins) inside the microphone body.

At first glance, the Lampifier appears quite durable, its all-metal body makes it resistant to road wear and abuse by performers and roadies. Personally, I think the 711's silver mesh grill could stand to look more unique as it appears a bit too similar to the Shure SM58. Regardless, looks are not as important as functionality, and the Lampifier 711 has been engineered for performance over appearance. The Lampifier 711 requires 48v Phantom Power to operate, so users will be needing to supply an external Phantom Power unit if the PA or mixer does not have it onboard.

The Lampifier 571 Infinite Direct Box is the high quality, "Swiss Army Knife" of the audio world

It connects virtually anything to anything as well as allowing incredible tonal and dynamic control, making it into a highly versatile pre-amp.
1) First of all, it's a direct box with inputs for XLR, TRS, piezo mics, line level and instrument level inputs. It can also sum stereo 1/4" inputs into mono.
2) It features a high quality, series cascaded EQ with 5 bands. Bass and High are shelved EQ, while 2 sweep able midrange bands and a separate presence control complete the tonal shaping options.

3) The most amazing part of the 571 is its patented Lampifier compressor/dynamic range reducer. Live sound, whether vocal or instrument, nearly always has too much dynamic range for ideal sound reinforcement needs. The Infinite Direct Box solves this problem with its "smart," fully transparent-and warm, analog, dynamic-range reduction system. This works great on vocals, acoustic instruments, bass, as well as both clean and crunch electric guitars. The amount of reduction may be increased or decreased, or bypassed entirely.
4) The 571 also features a speaker simulation module for smooth and lifelike, direct sound. The speaker sim offers 3 options: Direct (no speaker sim), "Stack" (4x12 cabinet) and "Combo" (open back cabinet).
5) The 571 can also function as a load box. This means you can plug a powered speaker output from your amplifier directly into the 571 input, tap that signal, run it through the onboard speaker sim snf out directly to a recording system and/or to a live PA. And you may even simultaneously output from the 571's 1/4" output into your speaker cabinet! This eliminates the need for mic'ing in a live environment, thereby reducing ambient sound. Or forget the speaker and go direct for quiet recording. Note: The load box capacity is limited to 100 watts max input level.

6) For getting signal out of the 571 there is an XLR output that routes +4dbu (professional level), as well as a 1/4" TRS output for line level. These work simultaneously. Also a third output option is the built-in USB digital output to computer (44.1k or 48k). Uses generic audio drivers.
7) The 571 can pass 48v phantom power to a mic connected to its XLR input. However, note that it will only pass phantom power when it itself is powered by a 9v plug adapter. (Not supplied: For this you'll need to pick up a 9v adapter at least 300ma capacity.) If you don't need to pass phantom power, the box may be powered either by a 9v battery or by passing 48v phantom power to it via the XLR output.
