Senal SCM-660 overview

  • 1Description

The Senal SCM-660 Multi-Pattern Condenser Mic with Studio Channel Preamp and Vocal Kit from B&H features a 1.3" gold-plated dual-diaphragm Senal professional-grade multi-pattern condenser microphone, a PreSonus Studio Channel tube mic preamp with VCA compressor and 3-band parametric EQ, and a Kopul premium-quality 3-pin XLR F to 3-pin XLR M microphone cable. The kit is designed to capture audio in a wide variety of applications for in-your-face vocals and instruments, and more.

The SCM-660 microphone has three selectable polar patterns—cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8—and is capable of a wide range of miking techniques and configurations. It features an onboard -10 dB attenuation pad that allows you to optimize signal levels and is built with an integrated 80 Hz high-pass filter roll-off switch, which helps eliminate low-frequency noise and rumble when recording.

The Studio Channel Class-A preamplifier has a single 12AX7 tube that delivers lots of headroom and provides a big tone. A -20 dB pad, 80 Hz high-pass filter, and polarity reverse let you tweak signals to sit properly in the mix. The VCA-based compressor offers a fast attack that can tame transients from slap bass, to snare drum, to vocals. In addition, the VU meter displays gain reduction or output gain.

Furthermore, the Kopul premium microphone cable is a made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that is wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. The 98% braided shield offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.

  • PreSonus Studio Channel

    The Presonus Studio Channel is a channel strip that features a tube preamp, a VCA compressor, and a 3-band parametric EQ. The tube preamp section features two knobs: Gain and Tube Drive. This allows you to adjust the amount of signal that hits the tube circuitry, opening up a wide range of sonic options. The VCA compressor section is well-suited to help all different kinds of audio sit nicely in a mix, whether it's percussion with fast transients, or smooth and silky vocals. The parametric EQ features a custom amplifier with a gain control on each of the 3 bands, with a variable Q knob on the mid frequency.

    If you're curious about outboard gear and want to upgrade your signal path from the stock preamp found on most audio interfaces, the Presonus Studio Channel is an excellent choice for deeper sonic exploration. Likewise, experienced professionals will appreciate the Studio Channel's solid set of sound shaping tools, as well as its afforable pricetag.

    Class A Vacuum Tube Preamp
    The Studio Channel features a high voltage 12AX7 tube with both Gain and Tube Drive controls, giving you the ability to dial in a variety of different tones.
    VU Meter
    The illuminated VU meter displays both output level and gain reduction.

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (10') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
