CMC 64 V
Common name: Schoeps CMC 64 V
Production Status: In production
The CMC 64 V is a small diaphragm cardioid side-addressed condenser microphone. Its directional pattern is largely independent of frequency with a mild high-frequency elevation. Due to its acoustically transparent head basket the MK 4V capsule has less high-frequency emphasis with off-axis sounds compared with other axial-addressed cardioids but it is still slightly brighter than the regular MK 4. The side-addressed pickup is useful in the concert hall for optimal positioning and in speech recording thanks to its slight emphasis around 10 kHz. It is ideal as a spot microphone in orchestra or in double M/S setups. The microphone amplifier CMC 6 U and the capsule MK 4 V form part of a modular microphone which permits the insertion of RC tubes or KC cables as well as other electronically active accessories between capsule and amplifier allowing for miniaturisation. The CMC 6U Amplifier offers a symmetrical, transformer-less, direct-coupled Class A output stage with low impedance, distortion, and interference. It is designed for standard 48 and 12 V phantom powering. Its circuitry recognises the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Includes wooden box, SG 20 stand mount clamp and B 5 D windscreen. It is also available in the CMXY 4V stereo microphone and as the compact condenser microphone CCM 4V.
