Schoeps Microphone Capsule MK 4S *** PLEASE SPECIFY MATTE GRAY OR NICKEL FINISH WHEN ORDERING. ****for pickup of speech or music at close range (under 50 cm), otherwise the sound may become thin. *cardioid pattern. *considerable attenuation of low frequencies. The MK 4S/ CCM 4S has a low-frequency rolloff to compensate for the low-frequency boost which occurs when close-miking. The MK 4S/ CCM 4S is used primarily in voiceover and sound reinforcement applications, and wherever good speech audibility in a noisy environment is a prime requirement. This microphone is suited for the recording of music in exceptional cases only. When it is used at a distance of ca. 10 cm flat frequency response can be obtained. Please note:This microphone type is a pressure-gradient transducer with a distinct bass rolloff, designed exclusively for the intelligible pickup of speech at close range in acoustically unfavorable conditions where proximity effect is inherent in the situation. Thus it is not normally suitable for music, and speech pickup at greater distance would sound thin and bright.If the user is faced with such problems only occasionally, this type of microphone may not be the most practical choice since it is intended to be used for very close miking, especially of speech. Instead, the standard version of the cardioid (MK 4 or CCM 4) can be used in combination with a variable filter (CUT or LC for MK 4, LC for CCM 4) which attenuates the low frequencies electrically. The CUT allows the amount of low-frequency attenuation to be tailored to the specific voice, its working distance and the locale. Of course the low frequencies could also be reduced at the preamp or console, but the CUT reduces the danger of overloading their inputs due to pop or wind noise. The MK 4 or CCM 4 - without the low-cut - can then be used for recording music or more distant dialogue on a different occasion.
