Description

The Schoeps CMIT CWS Set includes the CMIT 5U shotgun microphone, the Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit Medium, 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 Cyclone Windshield Kit

Introducing the all-new Cyclone product range, featuring next-generation wind and handling noise isolation for discerning audio professionals. All Cyclone models are now covered in our new, more advanced 3D-Tex® for even better performance. This durable windshield system possesses outstanding, consistent performance while being easy to maintain as it does not use fur. The Cyclone is truly evolutionary, and now it has been taken it a step further.

Rycote uses its industry-leading Lyre® microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise, but they have taken shock and handling isolation within the Cyclone design to a new level with the exclusive, Floating Basket Suspension.

Any structure can transmit mechanical vibrations and radiate them as acoustic noise. Moreover, natural resonances, dependent on materials and mass, will amplify certain frequencies and give this a characteristic spectrum. Windshield baskets are no exception, so a small proportion of handling noise links to the microphone through the air, bypassing any immediate suspension system.

The Cyclone takes the Lyre principle and incorporates it into the Floating Basket Suspension. This innovative technique provides vibration isolation between basket and pole, thus attenuating handling noise at source. Each Cyclone size is equipped with a unique basket suspension designed to maximize vibration isolation based upon the combined weight of the basket and specified microphones.
