Music is better when it sounds better. Sound is emotion. We figured out how to get immediate and consistent results from a single, revolutionary microphone. With The Periscope’s unique sonic signature, you can add beautiful depth to your mix, effortlessly, just by plugging it in and recording. The Periscope’s circuitry and capsule have been preconfigured — giving you the same audio characteristics every time — so you don’t have to worry about compromising your creative flow.
The Periscope was designed with simplicity in mind. No endless tweaking, seeking for “magic settings” or trying to find sweet spots to land your sound. Just plug in The Periscope and get killer character right off the bat.
The Periscope won’t bark at strangers. Use it as a standalone mic or blend it with others to add tonal balance and maximum impact to your mix.
Strings. Guitars. Pianos. Vocals. Native Indian drum circles! The Periscope’s unique technology makes it the most versatile character mic on the market. Feed The Periscope any audio you’d like, and it will deliver the same sonic signature with total reliability — time after time.
It ain’t bragging if you can back it up. The Periscope is loved by some of the hardest hitting producers, sound engineers and sonic creators on the planet:
Because the compressor variables in The Periscope are fixed, you get the same full-bodied sound out of the microphone every time. No fine-tuning. No wasting time — and no fussing with complicated recording chains.
We don’t have time to build & sell bullshit. The Periscope’s unique technology completely changes the way emotion is captured through sound. Every Periscope is hand-built in Finland by qualified grown-ups, giving you unprecedented quality in sound every time you plug it in.
Aesthetics are important, that’s why our Periscope is pretty AF. We’ve designed it with a bit of retrofuturistic flare to add elegance to your recording space.
Our goal was to blend simplicity with great sound. We want our customers to be able to capture a signature sound that would be difficult to replicate with a complicated recording chain — saving time and sanity before getting to the mix.
