The MK 8 is a small diaphragm bidirectional condenser capsule for the Colette system. The figure-eight pattern of the MK 8 remains constant from low to high frequencies, which is particularly important when used in an M/S setup. Its sensitivity rolls off more at low frequencies than other capsules, but proximity effect is also more pronounced. The MK 8 is often used for M/S and double M/S stereo sound in film sound and music recording, in combination with Colette or CCM microphones and/or a CMIT shotgun microphone. Specifications shown refer to the capsule used in combination with the CMC6 xt preamplifier.
