When should a CMIT-series microphone be used?

For use in smaller indoor spaces, SCHOEPS often recommends a microphone such as the MK 41 / CCM 41 supercardioid, with frequency response that is consistent for all angles of sound incidence. This capsule achieves very natural sound quality no matter how much reflected sound may be present in the room. The MiniCMIT and CMIT 5, on the other hand, offer increased directivity at high frequencies, and would be recommended particularly in order to increase the suppression of sound arriving from the sides, e.g. outdoors or in larger studios. With their excellent diffuse-field pickup characteristics, they combine transparent sound quality with high directivity. If even greater suppression of off-axis noise or diffuse sources of noise is required, we recommend the SuperCMIT. It is used mainly for feature film sound, but also on the theatrical stage and for sports broadcasting.
