Product Description
Additional Information
  • Product Description

    The Schoeps CMIT Softie Set includes the CMIT 5U shotgun microphone, the Rycote 12 cm Classic-Softie (19/22) Windshield, Rycote Duo-Lyre Mount with Pistol Grip Handle, wood box, W 140 foam windscreen, and SG21 stand clamp.

    CMIT 5

    The CMIT 5 is SCHOEPS' shotgun microphone which has set a new standard for shotgun microphones since its release. The CMIT 5's directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies, which results in a very balanced sonic character. In addition to this, the microphone's sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds, allowing these to be recorded neutrally as well as reducing the effects of movement during boom operation. The CMIT 5 also has a much stronger directionality than one might expect from a microphone of its length. If required, the CMIT 5 can also be used for music recordings, for example opera recordings.

    The sound quality of the CMIT 5 remains consistent even if the microphone is rotated on its axis, since its directional pattern is the same in both the vertical and horizontal planes.

    Three pushbutton-activated filters allow the microphone to adapt to the recording situation:

    • High-frequency emphasis (+5 dB at 10 kHz) enhances speech intelligibility, and compensates for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens
    • A steep low-cut filter (18 dB/oct. below 80 Hz) suppresses wind and boom noise
    • A gentle low-frequency rolloff (6 dB/oct. below 300 Hz) compensates for proximity effect

    Pairs of LEDs next to each pushbutton indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.

    The capsule and amplifier of the CMIT 5 U are built as a single unit, unlike microphones of the SCHOEPS ”Colette” series.

    • Unusually low coloration of off-axis sound
    • Suitable for music recording as well as dialogue
    • Rotationally symmetrical polar pattern
    • Even greater immunity to wind noise than a SCHOEPS supercardioid
    • Very lightweight, robust all-metal housing

    Rycote Classic Softie

    The genuine Classic-Softie sets the standard for slip-on wind protection. Advanced materials, adhesives and assembly techniques all combine to make the Softie an extremely tough product that provides excellent wind protection to withstand the harshest environments.

    Specially designed acoustic foam and synthetic fur achieve up to 25 dB of wind-noise reduction without any adverse effect on high frequencies. While protecting the mic, the specialty foam is impervious to UV and moisture damage making this a trusted tool for years of effective use in the harshest environments.

    Duo-Lyre shock mount

    All Rycote InVision microphone suspensions for camera mounting utilize the Duo-Lyre shock mount. Also available on the INV-7 HG Mk III stand and boom pole mounting, the Duo-Lyre is designed to hold the microphone towards the back while supporting the majority of the weight at the front to accommodate slip-on wind protection such as the Classic-Softie, Super Softie, and BBG Windshields.
