New Studio Projects C4 Matched Pair of Small Diaphragm Studio Condenser Mics
The C4 is small diaphragm condenser microphone set featuring interchangeable capsules, switchable -10dB pad/high pass filter and a linear low-noise, solid-state amplifier body.
Its modularity makes it a useful multi-purpose tool for all-around use on stage, on location and in all manner of studios. As a cardioid (pressure gradient) microphone, it provides excellent pickup of on-axis sources while attenuating extraneous sound occurring from around and behind the mic. This makes it ideal for close miking of individual instruments where bleed from other nearby instruments or sound is undesirable. The cardioids also make excellent stereo pairs for coincident and near-coincident miking techniques such as X-Y and ORTF. Additionally the C4's are quite useful on a drum kit as overheads and on toms.
Used as an omni-directional (pressure) microphone, the C4 offers a warm tonal response and is recommended especially for close miking in favorable acoustical environments. There is very little off axis coloration owing to the inherent physical properties of pressure capsules, and combined with the low self-noise of the mic amplifier, the C4 omni works as an excellent ambience mic -especially in pairs.
An optional single hypercardioid capsule is also also available.
