Informatie fabrikant:

CMC6

Overview

  • flat frequency response
  • extremely low noise and distortion
  • balanced, very low-impedance output
  • can be used with very long cables
  • well-protected against RFI
  • for use with 12- or 48-Volt phantom powering
Microphone Amplifier CMC 6 Ug

The capsules of condenser microphones (the only type which SCHOEPS manufactures) can't be connected directly to microphone cables or inputs; a microphone amplifier is required in between. Thus a complete microphone of the Colette series comprises any of the twenty available types of capsules combined with an amplifier.

The CMC 6 Ug is designed for standard 48- and 12-Volt phantom powering. Its circuitry recognizes the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Its performance characteristics remain essentially the same either way; mainly, the difference is that the current drawn at 12 Volts is greater than at 48 Volts. However, the 12-Volt mode consumes less power and might be preferred for battery-powered recording.

The microphone amplifier provides the electrostatic charge which the capsule requires in order to produce a signal. Since only a miniscule amount of current is contained in this signal, amplification of the current is required. To avoid interference to the signal on the way from the microphone to the input of the mixer or preamp, the signal is conveyed at low impedance and in balanced form. The CMC 6 Ug amplifier offers a symmetrical, transformerless, direct-coupled Class A output stage with low impedance, low distortion, and high freedom from interference.

Please note:
The two amplifiers in a stereo pair of microphones should be of the same type.

Application

Variant Amplifier Versions
Special versions of the CMC 6 Ug are available with different gain (amplification factor) or extended frequency range. The CMC 6 Ug can be specially ordered, or retrofitted at the factory, to have a different (e.g. lower) low-frequency limit from the standard version (see, for example, the ”linear” version listed below).

CMC 6 xt

CMC 6 Ug xt – the 40 kHz version
This version is indicated by the letters ”xt” engraved on the microphone's output socket. It extends the frequency response of the axially addressed Colette capsules beyond 40 kHz.
On the pages of these capsules, the frequency response curves are shown with both, the standard CMC 6 Ug amplifier and the CMC 6 Ug xt.

CMC 6 Ug linear
The CMC 6 Ug microphone amplifier normally has a gradual rolloff in response below 20 Hz to guard against infrasonic disturbances from various sources such as air movement and vibration. However, when using pressure (omnidirectional) transducers, particularly with digital recording, it can be desirable to pick up frequencies below 20 Hz without attenuation. The special technology of the CMC 6 Ug linear microphone amplifiers makes this possible; on request we can deliver microphone amplifiers with response that is flat to as low as 3 Hz.

Caution must be advised with respect to infrasonics, however. Since pressure transducers can pick up very low frequencies, ventilation systems in large spaces (churches, concert halls) or traffic rumble can create a problem. With pressure gradient transducers the risk is even greater. They are far less sensitive to very low frequency sound, but respond much more strongly to low-frequency mechanical stimuli such as air currents and solid-borne noise. Such signals may be below the audible range of frequencies, but they can overload electronic circuitry and produce severe distortion, particularly in transformer-coupled circuitry.

CMC 6 Ug +5 dB”
The sensitivity of a microphone using this type of amplifier is 5 dB higher than with the standard version, but the equivalent noise level and maximum output voltage are not materially affected. Thus the highest sound pressure level which the microphone can accept without distortion is 5 dB lower than in the standard version, while the signal-to-noise ratio is essentially the same with either gain setting.
This version might be chosen in order to raise the microphone's signals above the noise level of the equipment to which it will be connected, and / or for working with sounds that occur mainly at low levels.

MK21 Wide Cardioid

Overview

  • wide cardioid
  • especially consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • pleasant sonic impression, often described as “warm”
  • often preferred for use as a spot microphone, or as the main pair for overall stereo pickup

This type of capsule has a directional pattern between omni and cardioid. The basic idea in designing this capsule was to combine the advantages of the cardioid with those of the omni. This results in a pickup pattern which blends the two sets of characteristics. It has fuller and more extended low-frequency response than a cardioid, with less proximity effect, while picking up more room sound than a cardioid.

The polar diagram shows the directivity of the MK 21 to be only slightly dependent on frequency. This contrasts with omnidirectional capsules, whose directivity increases with rising frequency, and with cardioids (at least smaller ones), which tend to accentuate high frequencies that arrive at oblique angles.

Application

The MK 21’s orientation is less critical than with a cardioid, since direct sound arriving on axis and reverberant or other sounds off axis are both reproduced accurately. This lack of coloration in the off-axis pickup produces a “warm” and natural sonic impression.

The low directivity of this capsule type prevents it from generating large enough level differences for X/Y use, though M/S and near-coincident spacings are often successful.

Together with the cardioid and supercardioid, this is one of the most preferred types among our capsules.
