Neumann KMR 81 i mt overview

  • 1Description

The KMR 81 i MT Shotgun Microphone from Neumann uses a combination of a pressure gradient transducer and an interference tube. If the wavelength of the frequency is longer than the tube length, the microphone works as a pressure gradient transducer. At higher frequencies, it operates as an interference transducer for lateral sound. Off axis sound sources are picked up with reduced level, but without coloration. Therefore, the microphone is well suited to record individual instruments of an orchestra. The pickup areas of several shotgun microphones may even overlap as, for example, during recordings on a large stage, without causing any problem.

    Neumann KMR 81 i mt reviews

    KMR 81 i MT Shotgun Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Neumann! If you're looking for Best Bang for the Buck Check out Rode microphones. If you're looking for Cost no object Check out the Schoeps. If you want lush sound, a reliable mic, with a name you've grown to love: Neumann. This is the Hollywood sound (when Hollywood sounds good!)If the price is too high, check out the used market, you might save a grand. Anything else, hey if it's a great deal on a used or demoed mic then sure there are other brands I'd be excited about. DPA is one. Audio Technica & AKG will work. I'm curious about Beyer. Sanken I hear is amazing. However, as I said in the beginning: Rode/budget, Neumann/heck yeah! & Schoeps/I'm in Heaven.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic, Great sound! This is my everything mic right now, seeing as how I am still in college. However, I have access to every who's who of shotgun mics (sennheiser, schoeps, ect). While there are many great mics I have heard, I have to say I have not found one time I was wishing I had a better mic. If you are looking for a good mic that can be used in a variety of situations this is it. It has a full frequency response, so you can use it for foley and adr as well as a decently wide pick-up pattern allowing for one mic to be used on two people without excessive background noise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since sliced bread! This is a fantastic shotgun mic! It is incredibly quiet and sensitive, and can pick up sounds brilliantly from a distance. It is also a great all around mic because it has an extended low end (compared to other shotgun mics), which makes it great for capturing all types of foley sounds as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Sound I use it mainly for feature films, mounted on a boompole. Very warm and clear sound. My number one choice in controlled environments.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound I shoot commercials and documentaries. Great sound and short enough to mount on camera if needed for hand held shooting in documentary style filming; I can use wide angle lens w/o seeing my mic in shot. The clarity of peoples voices are great. Things not so great... although a definite superior field mic, other sound guys don't know this mic and are looking for another old standard.
