In all honesty I didn't know what part of the microphone you were trying to describe, and I still don't. If you meant the part that contains the circuitry--that's the amplifier. Or maybe you meant the short, narrow part at the back of the amplifier where the cable exits. I guess you could call that the "neck" of the amplifier, but that's not any kind of standardized term.

Anyway, those are just two guesses off the top of my head. (And maybe you meant something else entirely ...)

--best regards

I always feel like such an idiot when talking about Schoeps products.  I honestly thought the "collette" was the mic capsule holder on the capsule side of an active cable.  I think I understand now that the Collette series is a modular microphone product. 

Thanks for the education...

I tend to call the CCM/active part that fits into an SGC clip the "nipple".

It is only a inter changeable lens camera concept. The same camera body can be fitted with various lenses for various purposes.
Pre stage is the camera body, and lenses equal to the capsules.

David is, of course, technically correct.

But, as a linguistic descriptivist, I believe that, in taper parlance, the "colette" means the part of an "active" cable which attaches to the microphone capsule.


People, please: "Colette" is a name used by Schoeps GmbH to identify their CMC microphone series. Among the features of this series is Schoeps' original, patented scheme of "active" accessories (i.e. accessories that contain active circuitry). These accessories can be placed between the capsule and amplifier of a condenser microphone so as to allow unobtrusive placement of the capsule as a lightweight unit separate from the amplifier, or for other purposes such as signal processing (e.g. very sharp, active low-cut filtering).

"Colette" isn't a generic term. There's no such thing as "the colette" of something--even if that something was made by Schoeps.

as I have been known to be wrong before... that's that I would call the  part that connects the capsule to the active cable, hence why I noted "colette" for lack of a better term.

Just wondering if one wanted to order a matched pair of capsules with the "active" style "collettes" to mini (starquad-or similar) cable to  XLR how would one do so and what would be the costing? there appears to be no information  or pricing on the site about any "active type" set ups.  will the pdf brochure etc. and website be updated soon?

Yes, we will update the website and product info soon. Planning to make another brochure on the CMP1C combinations.

Thank you!

Is this recorded by pointing the mic at the PA speakers?

Many, though certainly not all, people on this forum are recording concerts from the audience area of a concert.  Often those concerts use a large PA system, so we're trying to pick up the sound coming from the PA.  This is generally done with the approval of the artist, though that generally doesn't include the ability to set up microphones anywhere in the venue.  So, we're usually trying to make a recording in suboptimal conditions and with equipment that wasn't designed having such a purpose in mind.

And a certain weird taper subgroup hides microphones in Samuel Jackson hats up close to avoid said suboptimal conditions.

It’s not our fault!!!

Looks like the film sound people are the ones who began using “collette” to mean, “capsule end of kcX cable”

A jwsound review of the cmr from 2013 read, in part:
“Also, it is a little bit bigger at the connection to the capsule than a Colette, but considering everything in the chain that it eliminates, this is negligible.”
 
Here’s the thread: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/17908-schoeps-cmr-use-your-mk-capsule-with-a-lectrosonics-bodypack-transmitter-with-a-single-cable/

People, please: "Colette" is a name used by Schoeps GmbH to identify their CMC microphone series.

New CMP1C, the hard wire pre-stage version is designed for microphone array setup. For those use stereo microphones, a fixed configuration microphone is convenient, but not possible to re-configured as other setup. Here is the solution.
Not only stereo, but also 3 channels, and 4 channels versions.
