CCM – Open Cardioid

SCHOEPS Compact Microphone CCM 22

CCM
Manual

New kind of directional pattern: “Open Cardioid”

Optimal combination of classic cardioid directionality (MK 4) with the sonic character of the wide cardioid (MK 21)

Directional pattern largely constant throughout the frequency range

Often preferred for spot miking and as a soloist’s microphone

The CCM 22 has been developed for use as a spot microphone.

It unites the strengths of the CCM 4 and CCM 21 microphones. Its directionality is only slightly less than that of the CCM 4 cardioid, while its sonic character is reminiscent of the CCM 21 wide cardioid. Its directivity is essentially constant throughout the frequency range.

Its inherent low-frequency response is somewhat more pronounced than that of the cardioid, while proximity effect is somewhat less.
