The Focusrite ISA One, sE4400a Stand & Cable is a bundle comprised of a SE Electronics sE4400A Multi-Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone, a Focusrite ISA One Classic Preamp, a Music Store MIC 1 Microphone Boom Stand, and a Music Store Standard Microphone Cable 6m.
The sE Electronics 4400a Condenser Microphone with four polar patterns - a truly versatile all-rounder.
The sE Electronics 4400a inherits its dual capsule's design from the highly successful sE2200a. With 4 polar patterns (Cardioid, Hypercardioid, Figure of 8 and Omni), 2 bass cuts at 60Hz and 120Hz, and 2 pads at 10 and 20dB, this mic does a good job in every recording situation.
The small chassis of the sE Electronics 4400a houses the twin diaphragm 1” capsule and all the top grade electronics and switches. The flat, round edged chassis design allows the mic to be used very close proximity to a drumhead or guitar cab, or even inside a kick drum. The sE Electronics 4400a is also perfect for sung vocals and voice over work, because although it’s the smallest mic of it’s type, it still ‘looks’ big when used full face on.
The sE Electronics 4400a mic is extremely thin at less than 3/4” and fits neatly in the palm of your hand. Featuring a unique, black, non-reflective, non-marking, rubberised finish, this professional microphone is ideal for live stage, theatre, TV and broadcast applications which require lighting.
The capsule of the sE Electronics 4400a has been specially tuned after almost 2 years of pre-market tests with professional studios and broadcasters, to really be something that very few mics can; the true all-rounder. Being truly versatile is vital in professional studio or broadcast applications where an engineer needs to know he can reach for a mic that will handle any job, and equally important for the budget conscious home studio user who needs one mic to suit every occasion.
The sE Electronics 4400a mic is multi-functional yet uncluttered, the sound is smooth and flattering and yet, because the capsules (like all sE mics) are hand made and individually tuned, this mic benefits from lacking the usual hyped top end of most modern mass produced mics, manufactured by automated machines.
The sE Electronics 4400a microphone comes with a unique shock mount which allows you to fit the mounted mic into tiny spaces, or invert the shock clamp to extend the mic fully outside the shock mount for close mic-ing applications or vocals. It also comes with a full, steel re-enforced, black aluminium, signature sE flight case.
The sE Electronics 4400a main features include:
- Polar patterns: Cardioid, Hypercardioid, Figure of 8 and Omni
- 2 bass cuts at 60Hz and 120Hz
- 2 pads at 10 and 20dB
- Small size makes it the ideal choice for many applications

Focusrite ISA One – a classic single-channel pre-amp.
ISA One delivers Focusrite's prestigious ISA transformer-based pre amp in a rugged and portable chassis, at a ground-breaking price.
ISA One features the classic vintage microphone pre-amplifier topology from the original ISA110 module, including the Lundahl L1538 transformer and bespoke zobel network. (The original 110 pre amp formed the cornerstone of each channel of Focusrite's legendary Forte console.)
The pre amp is complemented by a line input (XLR and TRS Jack) and an independent D.I. channel, complete with dedicated gain control, active or passive impedance switch, a TRS Jack output for routing to an amp and an independent XLR output on the rear. This flexible independent D.I. makes the ISA One ideal both for engineers wishing to blend a D.I.’d guitar signal with a mic’d guitar cabinet, and for demanding performers who require a single classic solution for both guitar and vocals.
ISA One also features an insert point, should the need arise to place extra processing between the pre amp or D.I. and the optional converter. Phantom power, phase reverse and a 75Hz, 18dB/octave high-pass filter are also available from the angled front fascia.
Independent input metering for both channels is provided in the form of a moving coil VU meter with variable calibration to suit analogue and digital recording media, alongside two six-LED peak meters; inputs can be metered either pre- or post-insert. The meter calibrations utilise all the same reference points as Digidesign's Pro Tools HD system, allowing effortless line-up.
ISA One’s headphone output features a dedicated volume control, which delivers an external stereo cue mix, (a simple click track, or a stereo mix feed from an interface or a live console,) fed to the headphones via two TRS jack inputs on the rear of the unit.
Focusrite ISA One main features include:
- Rugged and portable transformer-based pre amp
