The Schoeps CMIT 5's directionality increases smoothly with higher frequencies, which results in a very balanced sonic character. In addition to this, the microphone's sound level decreases softly yet steadily for off-axis sounds, allowing these to be recorded neutrally as well as reducing the effects of movement during boom operation. The CMIT 5 also has a much stronger directionality than one might expect from a microphone of its length.
OSIX CMIT is an adaptation of the OSIX 3, for the new Schoeps CMIT 5 microphone.
With the benefit of its lightness, size and steep slope low cut filter, this microphone is particularly adapted to the OSIX technics.
It also can be used with a CMC microphone combined with a CUT1 filter.
