Schoeps CMIT 5U overview

  • 1Description

The Schoeps CMIT 5U Shotgun Microphone and Rycote Windshield Kit is a shotgun microphone and windshield kit designed for mono recording of dialog and instruments indoors or outdoors in windy conditions. It includes a CMIT 5U shotgun condenser microphone, Rycote windshield, removable windjammer, foam windscreen, and wood box. The CMIT 5U boasts a supercardioid/lobe-shaped polar pattern, wide frequency response, excellent off-axis rejection, two low-cut filter settings, and a selectable high-frequency shelving boost. The included Rycote windshield provides effective protection against noise from wind, a shock-isolating Lyre mic mount, and a tidy exit for the integrated Mogami cable, in a compact enclosure.

  • CMIT 5U Shotgun Microphone (Blue)

    The blue Schoeps CMIT 5U is a short, lightweight shotgun condenser microphone designed to deliver accurate close and distant capture of dialog and musical instruments for boom operators, audio engineers, and musicians in film, television, and video production as well as music recording applications. Its supercardioid/lobe-shaped polar pattern yields precise directionality, high immunity to wind noise, and low coloration at the off-axis sections of the capsule.

    Multiple filter settings allow you to tailor the 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response to suit different environments and scenarios. A 40 Hz roll-off is active without any filter selection; the switches provide low-cut filters at 80 Hz or 300 Hz for management of proximity effect and handling noise, while a selectable high-frequency boost at 10 kHz enables increased vocal clarity and compensation for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens.

    LED indicators provide a reading of settings in low light and the settings are retained after power down. No batteries are required as the CMIT 5U is operated via 48V phantom power. It includes a windscreen, mic clip, and wood case.

    Enhanced Rejection of Off-Axis Sound
    Low-coloration and steady attenuation of off-axis sound results in a narrow pick-up pattern and balanced sonic character
    High Directionality
    The supercardioid/lobe-shaped polar pattern offers directionality that increases smoothly with higher frequencies
    Switchable Filters
    Select one of three filter settings for a high-frequency rise or reduced low frequencies
    Versatile Frequency Selections
    Choose between a 5 dB shelving boost at 10 kHz, a 6 dB/octave roll-off at 300 Hz, an 18 dB/octave roll-off at 80 Hz, or a 6 dB/octave roll-off at 40 Hz (default mode)
    Neutral Sonic Characteristics
    The wide frequency response and high maximum SPL enable the microphone to accurately capture dialog and instruments
  • Windshield Kit for Sennheiser MKH416 & Other Select Shotgun Microphones

    This Windshield Kit from Rycote is intended for use with the Sennheiser MKH416 and other select shotgun microphones. It can be used with a Schoeps CMIT5U or a Rode NTG3 shotgun microphone and is a complete modular windshield system including a suspension mount, a windjammer, a windshield, cables, and other essentials. This kit is a suitable solution for anyone who does not already own a suspension mount or windjammer.

    Compatible Microphones
    The Windshield Kit 416, optimized for the Sennheiser MKH416, is also fully compatible with other top shotgun microphones, such as the Schoeps CMIT 5U, DPA 4017B, Sanken CS-3e and CS-2, Neumann KMR 81i, and Rode NTG3
    Fits Like a Glove
    The 14.5" basket of the Windshield Kit 416 perfectly ensconces the Sennheiser MKH416 and other compatible shotgun microphones, as does the included shock mount
    Lyre Microphone Isolation
    A 72-shore Lyre suspension system isolates the microphone; this, in conjunction with the included and captive cable, minimizes handling noise
    RF-Shielded XLR
    This kit includes the Rycote 90° Shortie XLR inside the basket, which sports a built-in RF Shield to aid in facilitating clean audio capture from condenser microphones in dirty RF environments
    Included Windjammer
    The included Windjammer facilitates wind attenuation while preserving transparent audio transmission
    Boom Adapter and XLR Holder
    An included adapter attaches to boompoles via industry standard female 3/8" UNC brass thread attachment, while an offset Cyclone Series XLR holder sits outside the shield to hold the tail of the XLR cable firmly in place
