Schoeps CMIT Double M/S overview

  • 1Description

The Schoeps CMIT Double M/S Piano Set is a trio of Schoeps condenser microphones with a windscreen system designed for double mid-side recording of dialog and instruments; either indoors or in windy conditions outdoors. It includes a CMIT 5U shotgun microphone, a CCM 4Lg cardioid mic, a CCM 8Lg figure-8 microphone, a basket-type windscreen set, fur cover, mic clip, and necessary cables.

The microphones boast wide frequency responses, excellent off-axis rejection, and compact bodies. The included PIA-3S windscreen set features elastic suspension to cradle the microphones and eliminate handling noise. Install the supplied cloth cover or long-pile fur cover over the protective cage for enhanced immunity to wind noise without compromising acoustical transparency.

The PIA-3S has a one-axis swivel adapter with 3/8" threading, allowing easy mounting on a boompole. An integrated cable system provides one XLR 3-pin and two LEMO plugs merged to an XLR 7-pin output. External connectivity is simplified via the supplied XLR 7-pin extension and breakout cable, which converts an XLR 7-pin to three XLR 3-pin connectors.

  • 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
  • CCM4 LG Cardioid Compact Microphone

    The Schoeps CCM4 is a miniature cardioid microphone featuring a detachable cable and designed for use on singing and speaking voices as well as a wide variety of instruments. It can be used as a spot microphone or for stereo recording with additional mics in coincident, ORTF, or M/S microphone arrangements.

    The CCM 4 offers a flat frequency response, optimal rejection of rear-incident sound, and a directional pattern that remains constant throughout the audio frequency range. This mic is free of coloration whether the sound is arriving at the front, the sides, or from all around the mic at once.

    Classic cardioid
    Suitable for the widest range of applications, either as a spot microphone or for stereo recording with additional mics in coincident, ORTF, or M/S microphone arrangements
    Consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
    Preferred for singing or speaking voices and most instruments
  • CCM8 LG Compact Figure-Eight Microphone

    The Schoeps CCM8 LG is a miniature figure-eight microphone with a detachable cable. The figure-eight pattern design provides a bidirectional pickup that is almost completely identical at all frequencies. The figure-eight pattern is also useful in M/S stereo capturing. The K 5 LU adapter cable and an SGC miniature stand mount with swivel is also included.

    Figure-Eight Polar Pattern
    The capsule is a pure pressure-gradient transducer with a figure-8 pattern. The bi-directional pattern is almost completely identical at all frequencies.
    Detachable K 5 LU Cable
    This version of the CCM8 features a detachable 3-Pin LEMO connector allowing easier microphone interchanging and placement.
    Off-Axis High Frequency Rejection
    The CCM8 provides exceptional high-frequency rejection at the off-axis sections of the capsule.
    Wide Linear Frequency Response
    The wide frequency response ensures accurate detail regardless of the source signal.
  • AK DMS 3U Adapter Cable

    The AK DMS 3U Adapter Cable from Schoeps is used with the Schoeps "Surround Sets" for the Double M/S system. An XLR-7M output connector carries the signals from all three microphones (front mid, figure-8 and rear mid); the AK DMS 3U then splits the three signals out again.
