The Unitar is a dual-voice FET condenser, using the dial-sided large-diaphragm capsule found in the V67i FET and Tube microphones.
One side of the capsule is voiced differently than the other; the user selects the active side via a “warm/bright” switch on the body of the microphone. Presumably, an LED inside the headbasket lights up to indicate which side is active. The user would then potentially rotate the microphone 180° to point the active diaphragm at the sound source.
The output circuitry is transformerless.
Although this microphone was announced at Winter NAMM 2011, it is not scheduled for retail release until Q3-2012.
We will update this profile once additional specifications have been provided.
