Schoeps Mini CMIT Cinela Cosi Bundle
The Schoeps Mini CMIT Cinela Cosi Bundle includes the Schoeps Mini CMIT and Cinela Cosi Windshield which provides excellent wind noise & rumble protection.
Schoeps Mini CMIT:
The Schoeps Mini CMIT Shotgun Microphone offers the characteristics of a CMIT 5 in more compact form. The MiniCMIT, CMIT 5 and SuperCMIT (ch2) have identical frequency response curves. Furthermore, the MiniCMIT and CMIT 5 have circuitry with similar characteristics, such that the microphones can be interchanged without altering the sound.
Outstanding technical performance:
- Optimal on-axis response
- Smooth pickup of off-axis sound; diffuse-field frequency response rolls off gently above 2 kHz
- Very lightweight and robust; ideal for use on a boom
- Fixed 4th order low-cut filter at 70 Hz
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.

The Cinela Cosi Modular Windshield is a new lightweight fur windshield designed for use in light to moderate wind speeds. For strong winds, it is recommended using a full basket windshield solution, such as the Piano & Pianissimo.
As any other suspension/windshield, COSI needs the use of a good rumble filter (Very low end handling noise). Typically 50/70 Hz with a +18dB/oct slope (3rd order filter).
Many mixers/recorders only offers +12dB/oct filters (2nd order). Then it may be a little compromise.
Avoid microphones with +6dB/oct filters (1st order).
Many microphones are very rich in the Low End (MKH8000 or DPA with C preamp). These ones need a high slope filter.
Schoeps MiniCMIT offers a very convenient in-built +24dB/oct filter (4th order) !
Definitely the best against handling rumbles ! Absolutely no need for any other filter ! Best choice for “uncertain” inputs (cameras, DSLR).
