Description

Universal studio condenser microphone of exceptional quality. Pick-up patterns can be remotely adjusted and optimized under monitoring conditions. High transducers linearity minimizes signal distortions.

The MKH 800 TWIN is a universal studio condenser microphone of exceptional quality. It includes a dual capsule consisting of two symmetrical push-pull transducers with high linearity. This is a "side fire" microphone with the two cardioid pick-up patterns of the transducer aligned back-to-back across the axis of the microphone. The signals of both transducers are not combined in the microphone in order to generate differing pick-up patterns but are available separately as two channels at the microphone output. This allows the pick-up patterns of the MKH 800 TWIN to be remotely adjusted. The signals can be combined in any desired way in the mixing console in order to create all pick-up patterns from omni-directional to figure-8 with an infinite number of intermediate stages. Based on the legendary MKH 800, this microphone opens up to a new dimension of studio recordings.

 

What's in the box:

  • MKH 800 TWIN studio condenser microphone
  • MZQ 80 microphone clamp
  • MZS80 shock mount
  • AC 20 adaptor cable (1 x XLR-5 socket to 2 x XLR-3 connector)
  • User manual
  • Aluminium transport case

 

Features at a glance:

  • Color: Nextel grey
  • The remote adjustability and the variable pick-up patterns make the MKH 800 TWIN a universal main microphone, soloist microphone or supporting microphone.
  • The pick-up patterns can be set and optimised under monitoring conditions. In other words, it is not necessary to fix the pick-up patterns definitively before recording.
  • A wide range of mixes for stereo and surround are possible (including in parallel).
  • Saving of the microphone signals in two channels also allows an unlimited range of mixes to be realised at a later date.
  • The high sensitivity ensures interference-free signal paths as a result of high signal levels. The inherent noise of downstream microphone amplifiers is thus of minor importance.
  • Very low inherent noise prevents the masking of filigree sound structures. The depth of the acoustic can be heard more clearly too.
  • High linearity of the transducers minimises the signal distortions and ensures the transparency of the sound even at high sound levels.
  • The frequency response extends to 50 kHz, thus improving the resolution for complex acoustic details.
  • Stable pick-up patterns minimise sound distortion in the direct and diffuse field.
  • Negative acoustic effects caused by the housing and the sound inlet basket are minimised.
  • The small, slim design and the optionally dark housing design (Nextel) make it visually unobtrusive.
