The Schoeps MiniCMIT is a shortened evolution of the CMIT 5 and shares the same acoustic characteristics, with en identical frequency response curve, but in a much more compact form, as if this microphone met Jivaros Indians, who would have reduced it by 3.9", causing another 17 grams to be lost. The capsule is strictly the same, only the electronic body has been modified.
Unique innovation for a microphone, a superb fixed low-cut filter with a very steep slope, 70 Hz 24 dB/octave, is integrated (specialists call it 4th order low-cut filter), directly at the capsule output. Consequence: there is no risk of sub-basses which often saturate the following pre-amplifier stages.
In return, the three CMIT filters (high-frequency emphasis, low-frequency rolloff, low-cut) disappear.
The electronic circuits have been specially designed for consumption in sharp decrease compared to the CMIT, ie 2.3 mA against 4 mA.
With the MiniCMIT, Schoeps meets a strong demand both in news, documentary, and fiction, of a compact, lightweight, easy-to-use semi-shotgun microphone, without any betrayal of sound quality, reliability, nor awesome look.
Cinela Cie produces a version of the PIANISSIMO perfectly adapted to MiniCMIT.
