The Schoeps CMIT CWS SET is a package designed for location sound recording for film and electronic news gathering (ENG) applications. The package consists of the company's CMIT 5 U shotgun microphone, a Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit, a wooden box for storing the microphone, a W 140 foam windscreen, and an SG20 swiveling microphone stand adapter clamp. By combining these components, you can record high quality sound in the field with minimal noise from the wind.
CMIT5U Shotgun Microphone (Blue)
The Schoeps CMIT5U is a high quality professional long shotgun microphone that reflects the performance and sound quality expected of Schoeps. The CMIT5U is designed for professional film, video and music recording applications, capturing both dialog and instruments with great detail and accuracy. The microphone features a directional pattern with low-coloration at the off-axis sections of the capsule. Low and high frequencies are captured at a wider pick up area than that of mid-range frequencies. The result enables audio engineers to cue the boom and keep actors "on mike" with more precision.
The microphone provides a series of frequency contouring switches. The high-frequency emphasis switch enhances vocal intelligibility and compensates for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens. A steep low-cut filter switch reduces wind and handling noise while the gentle low-frequency roll-off compensates for noise caused by proximity effect. LED indicators provide a reading of settings in low-light and the settings are retained after power down.
Exceptional Rejection of Off-Axis Audio
Low-coloration of off-axis audio result in a narrow pick-up pattern. Mid-range frequencies are captured at a more generous area for more accurate capturing of dialog.
Frequency Contour Switches
Three frequency contour switches provide a high-frequency rise and enhanced vocal intelligibility as well as noise suppression from wind, handling and proximity effect.
Versatile Sonic Characteristics
The wide frequency response and sensitivity response characteristics enable the microphone to accurately capture dialog and instruments.
W 140 Foam Windscreen (Anthracite)
The anthracite-colored W 140 Foam Windscreen from Schoeps attenuates wind noise, andis an accessory part for the CMIT 5 U Shotgun Microphone.
For mild wind speeds (up to 18 km/h)
SG20 Microphone Adapter Stand Clamp
The Sanken SG20 Microphone Stand Adapter is designed to stand-mount Sanken Microphones measuring 0.78" (20mm) in diameter. The SG20 features a swivel action for flexible positioning.
Cyclone Windshield Kit (Large)
Ideal for a multitude of outdoor ENG, broadcast, and film applications, this large Cyclone Windshield Kit from Rycote features a two-piece "Z-Locking" basket design that magnetically affixes around your microphone, isolating the mic from wind-caused noise. Up to 50 dB of reduction can be achieved with use of the Cyclone Windshield alone, and >60 dB is possible when used with a Windjammer on top of it. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which reduces reflections from parallel surfaces in the recording environment, providing clean audio recordings during outdoor interviews, location shoots, and more. It's designed to provide wind noise reduction that exceeds traditional modular-style windshield/windjammer combined performance.
The Cyclone introduces a "multi-suspension" design that provides isolation against handling noise, cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. This multi-suspension design inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted, thereby improving recording quality.
The kit includes the Cyclone Suspension fitted with 72-shore Universal Lyres, a Cyclone XLR cable, a large Cyclone Windshield, a pair of Universal Lyres 62-shore for lightweight microphones, and a hex key driver for making adjustments to the Lyres on the suspension.
