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

Thanks to a polar pattern that stays the same in the vertical and horizontal planes, the CMIT 5 produces consistent sound quality at any point of rotation. With directionality that increases smoothly at high frequencies and an accurate 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, the CMIT 5 is optimized for neutral, transparent capture of dialogue, foley, sound effects, and instruments. Considering its low self-noise of 13 dBA and moderate sensitivity of -35 dB, it performs best when paired with a clean, high-gain mic preamp.

Customizable Tone

Though the CMIT 5 is engineered to yield a neutral sonic signature, it offers three buttons to alter its tonal balance. Turn on the treble emphasis for a 5 dB boost at 10 kHz, which increases speech intelligibility and helps compensate for high-frequency loss caused by windscreens. Activate the gentle bass roll-off filter (6 dB/octave below 300 Hz) to offset proximity effect, and use the steep low-cut filter (18 dB/octave below 80 Hz) to suppress boom noise and rumble.

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.

RFI Shield

The CMIT 5 utilizes special construction and filtering to provide a high standard of measurable immunity from radio-frequency interference (RFI) caused by sources such as switching power supplies, lighting controls, AM/FM radio, digital radio and TV, cellular phones, and broadband communications. The switches in the CMIT 5 are mounted on a circuit board with an integrated shielding layer, thereby providing a fully-sealed housing for the rest of the circuitry.

Phantom Powered

The CMIT 5 features a balanced 3-pin XLR output and support for phantom power over 34 VDC, making it compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters, as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

Mount the CMIT 5 directly on a stand or boompole using the supplied mic clip, or place it in the separately available Rycote INV-7 InVision shockmount to prevent the transfer of vibrations to the microphone.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The CMIT 5 includes a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rycote Cyclone Windshield Kit (Medium) blimp-style windshield and suspension system (available separately).

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
