Description

The Schoeps CMC6 with MK41 Supercardioid Matched Pair combines two CMC6 mic amplifiers with MK41 supercardioid capsules.

The MK41 capsule is strongly directional. Sound arriving off axis is attenuated even more than with a cardioid. The pickup is “drier” and less susceptible to acoustic feedback than any other SCHOEPS capsule type (a loudspeaker should not be located directly along the rear axis of the microphone, however).

Its directivity is highly independent of frequency, so that even sounds arriving off axis and reverberant sound are registered without coloration. Consequently, even distant placement of the capsule produces a very natural sound pickup. This is a real advantage over interference-tube “shotgun” microphones, whose directivity is very frequency-dependent – exceeding that of a supercardioid only at higher frequencies. Interference-tube microphones are notoriously sensitive to their position in a room, where the shifting patterns of reflections cause corresponding shifts in sound color. Thus the MK 41 are surprisingly effective, space-saving alternatives to shotgun microphones – and being small, they can often be placed closer to the sound source.

The CMC6 is designed for standard 48- and 12-Volt phantom powering. Its circuitry recognizes the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Its performance characteristics remain essentially the same either way; mainly, the difference is that the current drawn at 12 Volts is greater than at 48 Volts. However, the 12-Volt mode consumes less power and might be preferred for battery-powered recording.

Features:

  • Supercardioid with highly consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • Great for music and speech
  • High directivity, comparable to that of a short “shotgun“ microphone up through midrange frequencies
  • Often preferred for use in film sound recording and as a spot microphone in orchestras
  • Flat frequency response
  • Extremely low noise and distortion
  • Balanced, very low-impedance output
  • Can be used with very long cables
  • Well-protected against RFI
  • For use with 12- or 48-Volt phantom powering
