In the April 2021 issue of Recording Magazine, the Audix A133 Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone received a glowing review from writer Alex Hawley, who tested the mic on several sources.
“Its accurate and uncolored response makes it an excellent choice for any number of percussive or stringed instruments as well as voice,” Hawley writes. “It sounded excellent on the barrage of hand percussion I used, and I think the smooth top end would translate into great overheads as well.”
For vocals, he writes that the A133 feel “right at home” with a “touch of airiness” around 12 kHz that adds “clarity with a nice modern touch” and “impressively well protected from plosives.”
His favorite source was the acoustic guitar and that “there’s something very satisfying about the dynamics and detail the A133 can capture on a fingerstyle performance.”
