Schoeps MiniCMIT DMS overview

  • 1Description

The Schoeps MiniCMIT DMS Set is a trio of Schoeps condenser microphones with a windshield system designed for double mid-side recording of dialog and instruments indoors or outdoors in windy conditions. It includes a MiniCMIT miniature shotgun microphone, a CCM 4 Lg cardioid mic, a CCM 8 Lg figure-8 microphone, a Rycote Stereo Cyclone windshield system, an XLR 7-pin extension, and a break-out cable that converts an XLR 7-pin to three XLR 3-pin jacks.

The microphones boast wide frequency responses, excellent off-axis rejection, and compact bodies. The included Rycote windshield is acoustically transparent and offers significant vibration isolation and wind-noise reduction.

An integrated cable system merges the individual mic outputs to an XLR 7-pin jack. Connect the XLR 7-pin output to the supplied XLR 7-pin extension and breakout cable, which converts an XLR 7-pin to three XLR 3-pin connectors. From there, you can easily route signal to your preferred mic preamps.


  • MiniCMIT Miniature Shotgun Microphone (Blue)

    The blue Schoeps MiniCMIT is a miniature shotgun microphone designed to provide the characteristics of standard CMIT mic in a short and lightweight body. Delivering accurate close and distant capture of dialog and musical instruments, it is ideal 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. An integrated RFI shield yields enhanced rejection of radio-frequency interference.

    The MiniCMIT features the same frequency response as the CMIT 5, allowing either microphone to be used without altering the sound. A fixed 24 dB/octave low-cut filter at 70 Hz prevents proximity effect and build-up of low frequencies. It supports P12 and P48 phantom powering with low current draw and utilizes an XLR 3-pin output for compatibility with most microphone preamps. The MiniCMIT microphone includes a foam windscreen and a swivel-type stand clamp.

    Offers the tonal characteristics of the CMIT 5 in a lightweight body less than 6" long
    Fixed 4th-order (24 dB/octave) low-cut filter at 70 Hz
    Works on a variety of phantom power voltages
    Integrated RFI shield rejects interference from radio frequencies
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Stereo Cyclone DMS Kit 2 Windshield System for Schoeps MiniCMIT, CCM 8 & CCM 4

    The Rycote Stereo Cyclone DMS Kit 2 is a windshield system offering acoustically transparent protection for location sound mixers and recordists using a double mid-side array of Schoeps MiniCMIT, CCM 8, and CCM 4 microphones in broadcast TV, film, video, and game audio production. It features an enhanced Connbox design with no straight or parallel surfaces to reduce room tone and resonance. Its Lyre mic suspension and Floating Basket Suspension improve vibration isolation and minimize handling noise.

    The 3D-Tex material delivers significant attenuation of wind noise while being easy to clean. Further contributing to the system's low maintenance is the magnetic locking design, which allows one-handed opening and closure. The one XLR and two LEMO inputs match the connectivity of your Schoeps MiniCMIT and CCM microphones, and the XLR 7-pin output contributes to effective cable management. Boompole compatibility is offered via a brass 3/8" UNC female thread.


    Built by Hand
    Each Stereo Cyclone windshield is individually hand-built in the Rycote factory in Stroud. This very specialized manufacturing process is carried out by a highly skilled Rycote technician and takes many hours to complete.
    Enhanced Connbox Design
    Designed specifically for internal cable routing, isolation, and vibration reduction, each Connbox has been optimized for specific stereo and multichannel microphone configurations. Every wire and connector has been precisely measured to offer maximum performance.
    Lyre and Floating Basket Suspension
    Rycote uses its industry-leading Lyre microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise. The Stereo Cyclone also features the Rycote Floating Basket Suspension: an innovative design that prevents natural resonances and vibrations from bypassing the main suspension and radiating from the structure of the basket itself.

    The Lyre principle is incorporated into the portions of the suspension that connect directly to the basket; the entire structure "floats," isolating problematic internal vibrations originating from boompoles and other sources.

    Stereo configurations are particularly susceptible to the effects of acoustic re-radiation, since more microphones point at the overall surface of the basket. The incorporation of the Floating Basket Suspension results in a windshield with superb vibration isolation.
    Acoustically Transparent Wind Protection
    An open-cell structure consisting of curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces greatly reduces room-tone effects inherent in conventional tubular windshield designs. The physical design shifts the overall bulk to the basket front. The aerodynamically efficient asymmetric basket covered with 3D-Tex material provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance, resulting in wind-noise reduction comparable to the combined modular-style windshield/fur cover performance. In truly extreme weather conditions, a Cyclone Windjammer (available separately) can be used to deliver superior wind-noise reduction.
    Easy Removal and Attachment
    The windshield can be removed from or attached to the suspension in an instant using just one hand, allowing audio professionals to capture the best possible audio at any moment in any environment. This is the unique benefit of Rycote's Z-Locking System. Reassembly is automatic as components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.
    Low Maintenance
    Location sound mixers require equipment that will not only withstand extreme conditions, but also maintain consistent performance. Maintenance is often a time-consuming yet necessary evil. The Stereo Cyclone's 3D-Tex was developed for both outstanding performance and ease of maintenance. Dust it off after mild use or rinse and air dry after heavy use to maintain outstanding, transparent, and consistent performance for years of faithful use.
  • 16.4' XLR-7 Multicore Extension Cable

    The 16.4' (5.0m) KDMS 5U XLR-7 Multicore Extension Cable from Schoeps is for three balanced signals and is used as an extension cable especially for double M/S.



  • 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.
