The Schoeps MK8 is part of the Colette series of modular capsules designed for use with the CMC preamplifiers. The single diaphragm produces a figure-eight polar pattern. The pattern ideally captures audio at the front and back of the capsule and may be used in stereo M/S applications, ambiance capturing and more. The MK8 is ideal for both speech and music capturing, resulting in rich detail without coloration.

Figure-Eight Polar Pattern
The figure-eight pattern effectively captures audio at the front and rear of the capsule.

The Figure-Eight polar pattern is suitable for M/S stereo applications.
Wide Linear Frequency Response
The wide frequency response ensures accurate detail regardless of the source signal.

      Comments about Schoeps MK8 Figure-Eight Capsule:

      I'm using this with a CMC6 and a CMIT5U for an M/S rig. I know there has been some debate on Gearslutz regarding Schoeps vs Sennheiser for this application but to my ears, the sound is great. Gives me an accurate and clear reproduction of the sounds being recorded. It's pricey but I'm not afraid to pay for the results that I get using this gear.
