CCM 4V

SCHOEPS Compact Microphone

Audio Samples | Manual

“Vertical” (side-addressed) cardioid capsule

For a very wide range of recording applications

Slight high-frequency emphasis

Often preferred for singing or speaking voices and most instruments

The CCM 4V may be easier to use in near-coincident setups than the CCM 4:
the microphone bodies do not get in each other’s way.

Application

The MK 4V was created in answer to requests for a cardioid with its main axis along the side. In addition to its usefulness in the concert hall, this microphone type is of particular value in speech recording, since its slight emphasis around 10 kHz helps to improve intelligibility.

The directional response is especially well maintained even at higher frequencies, due to the acoustically transparent housing. There is less high-frequency emphasis of off-axis sound than occurs with most small, axial-response cardioids. The MK 4V still sounds somewhat brigher than the MK 4, however, because of its overall frequency response.
