Manufacturer's Description from Josephson


Series Seven microphones provide unprecedented flexibility, as the directional pattern of the mic can be adjusted in use, during or after recording. C700 microphones include omni/pressure and figure-8/gradient capsules, each with a discrete output. The signals can be recorded on separate tracks, so the pattern can be selected in mixdown. Pattern control is only one advantage of this technique. Applying different equalization or dynamic control to the capsule signals makes entirely different mic characteristics for instance the warmth of a gradient mic used close up for vocals might be combined with the transparency of a pressure mic in the highs, by rolling off the high frequencies in the gradient signal and the lows in the pressure signal before they are combined.

The C700S microphone has three capsules; an additional side-facing figure-8 capsule is added to the two in the C700A. Any coincident stereo pickup can be derived from mixing these three signals together, and like the C700A, the signals can be recorded individually and all aspects of image width and pattern control may be adjusted in the mixdown. With the three capsule signals, any number of microphone outputs may be created, each one pointed anywhere in the plane around the microphone.

The capsule assembly in the Series Seven is internally shock mounted, so that the mic may be attached directly to a stand through its yoke mount without any external accessories.

About Manufacturer

Josephson Engineering makes a wide range of fine condenser microphones for studio, stage and field sound pickup, and audio instrumentation. The company began in San Jose, California in 1988 and moved to Santa Cruz in 2000. This is our 20th year of producing microphones. In the process of developing our own mics, we've come up with special technologies that let us realize designs that weren't possible in classic mics of years past. This means that the expert user has a wider range of sound choices, without many of the compromises of older designs. Besides our own production, we also supply microphone capsules to several other mic manufacturers that become the mics for their most demanding customers. All of our business is individual -- we use select local dealers who bring our product directly to critical users around the world. We have a standard product line that covers many applications, but if there's a microphone you need that we don't make, we'll either tell you about the best one we know of for that job, or make it for you ourselves. We won't tell you that one of our mics is good for everything -- there's no such thing. Josephson also provides electro-acoustical engineering, design and manufacturing services for challenging requirements in many industries, specializing in microphone transducers and supporting systems. Our OEM capabilities have allowed several companies to excel in their own markets, using capsules made by Josephson.
