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.
Schoeps CMIT 5 Shotgun Microphone (Blue)
Sized between the short MiniCMIT and the long SuperCMIT, the blue Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun microphone is an excellent all-around boom mic for indoor and outdoor applications. Highly regarded for film, TV, and location recording, the CMIT 5 offers customizable tone and predictable directionality, even when rotated.
Three selectable filters let you manage boom noise, proximity effect, high-frequency emphasis to ensure balanced, professional audio quality. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.
The CMIT 5's supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields directional characteristics that smoothly increase at higher frequencies while providing low off-axis coloration for natural sound at all angles. With low self-noise, moderate sensitivity, and high SPL handling, the CMIT 5 delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.
Professional Sound Quality
Pairs of LEDs next to each push button indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness, the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.

Schoeps 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.
Schoeps 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.

Schoeps 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.
