Schoeps CMC 6 Preamp

Schoeps CMC 6 preamp is designed for standard 48- and 12-Volt phantom powering. Its circuitry recognizes the supply voltage and adjusts itself automatically. Its performance characteristics remain essentially the same either way; mainly, the difference is that the current drawn at 12 Volts is greater than at 48 Volts. However, the 12-Volt mode consumes less power and might be preferred for battery-powered recording.

The microphone amplifier provides the electrostatic charge which the capsule requires in order to produce a signal. Since only a miniscule amount of current is contained in this signal, amplification of the current is required. To avoid interference to the signal on the way from the microphone to the input of the mixer or preamp, the signal is conveyed at low impedance and in balanced form. The CMC 6 U amplifier offers a symmetrical, transformerless, direct-coupled Class A output stage with low impedance, low distortion, and high freedom from interference.

  • Flat frequency response
  • Extremely low noise and distortion
  • Balanced, very low-impedance output
  • Can be used with very long cables
  • Well-protected against RFI
  • For use with 12- or 48-Volt phantom powering

The capsules of condenser microphones (the only type which SCHOEPS manufactures) can’t be connected directly to microphone cables or inputs; a microphone amplifier is required in between. Thus a complete microphone of the Colette series comprises any of the twenty available types of capsules combined with an amplifier.

Schoeps CMC 6 Body Types –

Variant Amplifier Versions
Special versions of the CMC 6 U are available with different gain (amplification factor) or extended frequency range. The CMC 6 U can be specially ordered, or retrofitted at the factory, to have a different (e.g. lower) low-frequency limit from the standard version (see, for example, the ”linear” version listed below).

CMC 6xt U – the 40 kHz version
This version is indicated by the letters ”xt” engraved on the microphone’s output socket. It extends the frequency response of the axially addressed Colette capsules beyond 40 kHz.
On the pages of these capsules, the frequency response curves are shown with both, the standard CMC 6 U amplifier and the CMC 6 U xt.

CMC 6 U linear
The CMC 6 U microphone amplifier normally has a gradual rolloff in response below 20 Hz to guard against infrasonic disturbances from various sources such as air movement and vibration. However, when using pressure (omnidirectional) transducers, particularly with digital recording, it can be desirable to pick up frequencies below 20 Hz without attenuation. The special technology of the CMC 6 U linear microphone amplifiers makes this possible; on request we can deliver microphone amplifiers with response that is flat to as low as 3 Hz.


Schoeps CMC MK Capsule Types –

MK4 – Cardioid
It offers the highest sound quality, flat frequency response, optimal rejection of rear-incident sound, and a directional pattern that remains constant throughout the audio frequency range. In the diffuse sound field it shows only a mild rise around 10 kHz; the sonic impression thus remains free of coloration even when sound is arriving from all sides at once. The sonic impression is thus free of coloration whether sound is arriving at the front or at the sides of the microphone, as well as for diffuse sound (reverberation) in a room.

  • Classic cardioid
  • Suitable for the widest range of applications, either as a spot microphone or for stereo
  • Recording with coincident, ORTF or M/S microphone arrangements with consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • Often preferred for singing or speaking voices and most instruments

MK41 – Supercardioid
The MK 41 is strongly directional. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated even more than with a cardioid. The pickup is “drier” and less susceptible to acoustic feedback than any other SCHOEPS capsule type (a loudspeaker should not be located directly along the rear axis of the microphone, however).

  • Supercardioid with highly consistent directionality throughout its frequency range
  • For music and speech
  • High directivity, comparable to that of a short “shotgun“ microphone up through midrange frequencies
  • Often preferred for use in film sound recording and as a spot microphone in orchestras

MK8 – Figure of 8
This capsule type is a true dipole (bidirectional) transducer, operating with a single diaphragm. Its main axis is at a right angle to the capsule, and is marked at 0° and 180° with a red and a black dot respectively.

  • Pure pressure-gradient transducer
  • Figure-8 pattern with near-ideal consistency across the frequency range
  • Side-addressed (pickup perpendicular to the microphone body)
  • Optimal for use in M/S and Blumlein stereo recording

MK22 – Open Cardioid

  • Unique directivity: Open kidney®
  • Optimal combination of the directivity of the classical kidney (MK 4) and the sound properties of the wide kidney (MK 21)
  • Low frequency dependence of directivity leads to a natural sound
  • Preferred use as a support and soloist microphone as well as in the main microphone pair eg distance 21cm, angle +/- 55 ° or as center microphone in MS
