Studio Condenser Microphones M 930, M 940, M 950 Studio Condenser Microphones M 930, M 940, M 950

The M 930, M 940, M 950 studio condenser microphones combine modern large diaphragm capsule technology with the latest in semiconductor circuit topology. They are specifically designed to meet the needs of professional and semi-professional users who demand the highest performance.

The microphones are ideally suited for universal miking applications in broadcast and sound studios. Their very favorable pricing also makes them attractive for project studios. Applications include vocalists, announcers, dialog pickup and as spot microphones for recording guitars, keyboard, percussion, wind and string instruments.

The condenser capsules exhibits a smooth frequency response with a slight presence boost in the 7 to 11 kHz range. The polar response exhibits an exceptionally high degree of rejection for sounds impinging from the rear (cardioid) or sides (super-cardioid) of the microphone.

The electronic impedance converter uses a newly perfected circuit topology. This design reduces the noise floor to an extremely low level while also raising the maximum output capability. As a result, these microphones have a clean, distortion free sound over an extremely wide dynamic range. RFI susceptibility is very low.

The microphone capsule and electronics are elastically suspended inside the compact metal housing. This reduces the sensitivity to mechanical impact and structure born noise. The microphone stand holder MH 93.1 can be exchanged for an elastic suspension EH 93 to further attenuate noise in extreme situations.

The M 930, M 940, M 950 connect to the microphone cable with a standard 3-pin XLR plug. Powering must be provided by an external 48 V phantom supply according to DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15.

The microphones are finished in either a satin nickel or dark bronze color.

Studio Condenser Microphone M 800

Studio Condenser Microphone M 800 Studio Condenser Microphone M 800

The UMT 800 is a large format studio microphone featuring a pickup capsule with a long history of proven performance. Five polar patterns make this mike an ideal choice for a wide range of professional and semi-professional recording situations.

The UMT 800 produces a clean, colorless sound, ideally suited for accurate recording of instrumental and vocal soloists in music studios, motion picture scoring stages and television broadcast studios. Two distinguishing characteristics of this microphone are its high sensitivity and outstanding signal to noise ratio.

The pickup capsule is a pressure gradient transducer using dual membranes and a single brass back plate. The large diameter plastic membranes are sputtered with gold. Varying the polarization voltage to the membranes with the pattern switch, located just below the head grill, produces five patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper-cardioid and figure 8.
The direction of maximum sensitivity is radial to the head grill, i.e. side addressed.

The microphone amplifier is a transformerless design with a symmetrical output stage. This design yields a wide dynamic range and a low self noise floor. The sensitivity can be reduced by a 10 dB switch mounted on the body of the mike when miking extremely loud sound sources. A low frequency roll-off switch, also mounted on the body of the mike, reduces proximity effect when close miking.

The microphone is equipped with a 3 - pin XLR connector fitting to a microphone cable, e.g. C 70. The UMT 800 uses 48 volt phantom powering according to the international standards DIN 45596 and IEC 268 -15. It is available in a black matte or satin nickel finish.

For more information see UMT800 technical data.

Transformerless Condenser Microphone UMT 70S

Transformerless Condenser Microphone UMT 70S Transformerless Condenser Microphone UMT 70S

The UMT 70 S condenser microphone equipped with our proven large diameter membrane capsule features outstanding performance, a high sensitivity and a improved signal-to-noise ratio.

The UMT 70 S guarantees a particularly clean and colourIess sound reproduction. lt is well suited for instrumental and vocal soloists in radio and television broadcasting and for accurate productions.

The pressure gradient transducer is a dual capacitor design using a single brass back plate and two large diameter gold plated plastic membranes. Varying the polarization voltage applied to the membranes produces three directional characteristics: omni, cardioid and figure 8. A ring at the bottom of the microphone´s head grill selects the pattern. The omni-directional pattern shows a slight 2 dB rise in the vicinity of 10,5 kHz while the bass response is perfectly flat. The cardioid and figure 8 patterns exhibit a smooth treble boost rising which peaks at about 4dB in the range of 7 kHz. This response coupled with a slight roll-off at low frequencies is what gives the microphone its legendary "presence". The direction of maximum sensitivity is radial to the grill, i.e. side addressed.

The newly developed transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer by a symmetrical output stage yielding superb transient response combined with high RFI rejection. The circuitry also achieves wider dynamic range by lowering. The self noise floor and increasing the headroom for loud signals.

A 10 dB attenuator is installed to reduce the sensitivity of the microphone when placed near extremely loud sound sources. And, a low frequency roll-off switch will reduce the proximity effect when dose miking with the cardioid or figure 8 patterns.

The microphone is equipped with a 3-pin XLR connector fitting to a microphone cable, e.g. C 70. The UMT 7O S uses 48 volt phantom powering according to the international standards DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15. lt s available in a black matte or satin nickel finish.

Valve Condenser Microphone UM 900 Valve Condenser Microphone UM 900

The UM 900 is the first switchable pattern, valve condenser microphone which can be connected to industry standard 48 volt phantom powering using a normal 3-pin XLR microphone cable. This is made possible by an advanced circuit design for the amplifier and internal power supply. The pickup capsule uses a traditional, proven design with two large, gold plated plastic membranes.

Three switches are located around the body of the UM 900. The switch in the front selects the polar pattern: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper cardioid and figure 8. Located 120 degrees to each side are switches for gain adjust and low frequency roll-off.

The unusual shape of the microphone´s body is especially designed to minimize undesirable reflections of sound toward the pickup element.

Acoustic influences which could result from the housing resonance and/or mechanical vibration are reduced by the robust construction and by a special fixture within the microphone's housing which dampens vibration.

Cardioid Plane Microphone KEM 970

Cardioid Plane Microphone KEM 970 Cardioid Plane Microphone KEM 970

The Cardioid Plane Microphone is a multi-capsule microphone system with a directivity which is largely independent on frequency, and which in the horizontal plane has the characteristic of a microphone with super cardioid directivity but in vertical plane such of a directional microphone with an opening angle of about 30°. By this manner the directivity is matched to the situation very often exists that the sound source to be transferred is expended over a plane or is moving within this plane, while at the same time all the sound coming from the other directions has to be suppressed.

The sound to be suppressed can possibly consist of disturbing noise or of reflections which are generated by areas of ceilings, tables and the ground. With positioning the microphone in a horizontal plane the unwanted feedback effects can be reduced evidently which may released by sound system loudspeakers mounted at side walls.

The high degree of directional selectivity of the microphone requires the knowledge of the directions of incidence of useful sound as well as of disturbant sound. The more carefully the KEM 970 is adjusted in this relation, the better are the results which are gained.
