CCM 2

Compact Microphone

Properties

  • omnidirectional
  • linear frequency response
  • corrected for the direct sound field
  • for use close to the sound source (frontal sound incidence)
  • preferred applications: close pickup of singers and instruments

Order number

  • No. 121001 CCM 2 L (standard Lemo version)
  • No. 121002 CCM 2 U (fixed cable version with XLR)

Description

As can be seen from the frequency response curve, this microphone type has flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence. This yields a very natural quality when picking up sound that is predominantly direct, i.e. close to the source or in a ”dry” acoustic.

Practice

The CCM 2 is meant to be placed in close proximity to the sound source. The sonic impression never becomes overly brilliant or harsh. Please note that there is some directivity at high frequencies due to the physics of sound. Thus even with an omnidirectional microphone, it still matters which way the capsule is “aimed.”
