Despite its impressive outward appearance and seriously solid build, the Reactor is fairly modestly priced. It also boasts an impressive set of technical specifications.

It offers the three basic pickup patterns — cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-of-eight.

The Reactor's frequency response is quoted simply as 20Hz to 20kHz, but you have to look at the rather small printed graphs to find the whole story. There, a presence boost is evident, but it is fairly subtle, and high enough up the spectrum not to provoke harshness issues in most applications. There's a gradual low-frequency roll-off below 200Hz or so, which counters the proximity effect in cardioid and figure-of-eight modes. The mid-range is essentially flat from there on up, until the presence hump kicks in at between 8kHz and 15kHz.

As with most multi-pattern mics, the frequency response changes a little between patterns and, of course, the proximity effect also changes, being strongest in the figure-of-eight mode and non-existent in omni mode.

Sensitivity is quoted as 19mV/Pa at 1kHz, while the maximum SPL (for 0.5 percent THD) is 135dB. The self-noise is a commendably low 9.3dB (A-weighted), giving a useful dynamic range of 128dB and a signal-to-noise ratio of some 88dB. Standard 48V phantom power is needed for operation.


• Large-diaphragm premium condenser capsule
• Three recording patterns: Omni, Cardiod, Bidirectional
• Swivel head allows for flexible placement and multi mic positioning
• Unique selection method with magnifier for easy toggle
• Fully discreet, Class A solid state components, plus LED backlit pattern selection
The multi-pattern Reactor pushes the envelope of modern microphone design and performance while making multiple mic setups more accessible. Reactor fuses an innovative pattern selection method with a swiveling capsule head for perfect positioning, and features Blue's premium condenser capsule, fully discreet Class A solid state components, and proprietary preamp for simple live switching between patterns. To facilitate use in multiple mic setups, Reactor's capsule head rotates a range of 90 degrees for perfect positioning in tight spaces and easy pattern adjustability. Reactor's recording pattern selection is both intuitive and stylish, featuring LED backlighting on the pattern indicators and a magnifying element that compliments its forward-looking design. Includes metal case, pop filter, and shock mount.
