The Neumann KMR 81 D Digital Shotgun Microphone
is a digital
version of the coveted Neumann KMR 81 i shotgun microphone
. This digital
counterpart to the KMR 81 i
exhibits all the benefits of its lobe/supercardioid polar pattern
with professional grade A/D
conversion and an internal compressor
to avoid digital peak clipping
. The capsule
features a combination of a pressure gradient transducer
and an interference tube.
If the wavelength
of the frequency
is longer than the tube length, the microphones work as pressure gradient transducers. At higher frequencies they operate as interference transducers for lateral sound
. As a result all off-axis sound
sources are attenuated without coloration
. The KMR 81 D is well suited to record individual instruments, vocals and speech within highly ambient environment and much more.
Note! This is a digital microphone
and requires a converter kit (not included) for operation.
