New Sanken M-S stereo shotgun mic coming in June
« on: May 27, 2019, 09:14:59 PM »
Looks promising. A stereo M-S shotgun mic might be really good for some outdoor shows. https://www.sankenmicrophones.com/production/shotgun/cms-50/

Does anyone know what is inside this?Are they real fig8 capsules, back-to-back cards, or something else?
Please DO NOT mail me with tech questions.  I will try to answer in the forums when I get a chance.  Thanks.

The acoustic principle of the shotgun microphone is based on sound wavelengths. As long as we humans persist in recording sound waves in air rather than, say, mercury or liquid iron, that principle can't be miniaturized. When a shotgun microphone is made smaller (specifically the "interference tube" in front of the capsule), its effectiveness is correspondingly reduced.

Every shotgun microphone has a transition frequency above which the slotted "interference tube" starts to affect the pickup pattern. The shorter that tube, the higher the transition frequency is. With a normal short shotgun (ca. 8" to 9" interference tube) the transition is typically around 2 kHz--consonant articulation in the human voice happens up there, and of course shotgun microphones are designed primarily for the human speaking voice. The tube has to be nearly twice as long in order to narrow the microphone's pattern even slightly at 1 Khz.

A longer tube also creates a narrower pattern at the highest frequencies than a shorter tube does. But below the transition frequency, the tube has no effect at all, and the microphone is just an ordinary directional microphone of some kind. To behave any differently, the microphone would have to incorporate a multi-capsule array and/or digital signal processing--neither of which this particular mike has.

Sanken is a leading manufacturer of multi-capsule shotguns, with narrow pickup patterns that go down to lower frequencies than conventional, single-capsule shotguns can offer. Leading examples are the model CS-3e and its stereo counterpart, the CSS-5. But this new little mike doesn't have either digital or multi-capsule technology. So it may be a nice little stereo mike, but its forward-facing element can hardly be considered a shotgun microphone in any usual sense. It has a more or less normal sort-of-hypercardioid-ish pattern.

is interference tube an absolute value or relative to capsule size. im thinkin gof dpa 4080 cards with their ~3/4" interference tube and 4098/99 supercards with their ~1.5" tube. both use the ~1/4" capsules of course
