The Schoeps BLC turns any directional (e.g. cardioid or supercardioid) CCM Compact Microphone or MK capsule with Active Cable into a boundary-layer (PZM) microphone. This is especially useful when recording moving singers/ actors on a stage, or when a microphone on a stand would be obtrusive.
The boundary layer effect creates a 3 dB increase of the Direct-to-Room ratio. Thus, an increase of the recording distance is possible without negative effects.
A rubber ring built into the bottom of the plate prevents inadvertent rotation of the plate or marring of the surface on which it is placed.
- For directional boundary-layer recording with cardioid and supercardioid microphones
- Often used at the stage edge in opera live recording
- Avoids “comb filter” effect
