Schoeps CMC 1 Mono Windshield Set COSI

  • flat frequency response
  • extremely low noise and distortion
  • balanced, very low-impedance output
  • can be used with very long cable runs
  • well protected against RFI
  • for use with 12 Volt or 48 Volt phantom power
  • MK 41 Supercardioid directional pattern
  • High directivity, at low and medium frequencies comparable to that of a shotgun microphone
  • Natural sound due to flat frequency response which remains largely the same for all directions of pickup. This is particularly important for indoor recording
  • Preferred uses: recording dialogue for film sound; as a spot microphone in the orchestra and on the opera stage
  • 2yr Schoeps Warranty but extended to 10yrs if product is registered with Schoeps

Schoeps CMC 1 Mono Windshield Set COSI

The CMC 1 is Schoeps's, small Colette microphone amplifier, about one-third the size and 40% lighter than the CMC 6. It is compatible with all components of the Colette system and can be used in place of the CMC 6 without compromise, for all applications in which the size and weight of the microphone play a role. 

At SCHOEPS, “uncompromising miniaturization” means that the electrical characteristics of the CMC 1 are equal to, or even better than, those of the CMC 6. Through modern electronic design, these outstanding electrical properties have been achieved: 

  • High maximum SPL: 135dB-SPL with the MK 4 (0.5% THD or less) 
  • Very low current consumption: 2.0mA at 48 Volts 
  • Operates on 48V or 12V phantom power 
  • Very high immunity from RF interference with the SCHOEPS RFI Shield

The Schoeps MK41 super-cardioid capsule effectively attenuates diffuse sound energy and produces a clear, "dry" sound pickup.

Its polar pattern is exceptionally frequency-independent: sounds from the side and back are strongly attenuated, but picked up without false coloration. This feature has made the MK 41 an international standard for indoor film sound.

The susceptibility of the MK 41 to acoustic feedback is lower than with any other SCHOEPS capsule type, provided that no loudspeaker radiates directly from the rear. The sensitivity minimum of the supercardioid occurs at approximately a 125° angle of incidence.

The directional effect is independent of frequency, so that off-axis and diffuse sound are picked up free of false coloration, thus sounding natural. That is a real advantage over shotgun microphones, which have appreciably greater directivity only at higher frequencies, and frequency response (and thus sound quality) that depends on the direction of sound incidence.

Thus for many situations the MK 41 offers an interesting alternative to a shotgun microphone, even if its small dimensions do not appear to suggest high directivity. As a capsule without an interference tube in front of it, the MK 41 can also be placed closer to the sound source.
