Common name: Electro-Voice PC Desktop-18RD
Production Status: In production
The PC Desktop-18RD is a high quality desk microphone that can be used with both standard and automatic mixers. With its omnidirectional, cardioid, supercardiod and figure of eight polar patterns available, the microphone is ideal for virtually any installation. The PC Desktop-18RD also includes a switchable high pass filter that helps reduce any vibration induced noise pickup. The PC Desktop-18RD features a large push button mute switch. The mute button can be configured for push-on / push-off, push-to-talk, or push-to-mute function. Switch programming is easily accomplished without disassembling the microphone. A switch on the bottom quickly converts the PC Desktop-18RD to automatic mixer mode. In this mode, audio is always on. The PC Desktop microphone comes with the EV Multi-Port Windscreen. This one-piece ported design offers greatly improved resistance to popping noise by creating a two-stage filter that has an air space between the stages. This makes the multi-port windscreen as effective as much larger traditional designs.
