Manufacturer's Description from Schoeps

MK 22 Capsule Features

 ♦ New directional pattern: Open Cardioid

 ♦ Optimal combination of directionality (MK 4 cardioid) and warm sound characteristics (MK 21 wide cardioid)

 ♦ Natural sound quality, due to highly consistent polar diagram across the frequency range

 ♦ Popular for use as a spot or soloist's microphone, as the mid microphone for M/S, or as a main microphone pair e.g. at a spacing of 21 cm, angle +/- 55°

 

The "Open Cardioid" pickup pattern was introduced by SCHOEPS in 2008. It lies between the classic cardioid and the wide cardioid, achieving both a fair amount of directivity and very natural sound quality. Many years' experience of professional recording engineers with the range of Schoeps cardioids has played a large role in the development process. Meanwhile the MK 22 has become a preferred soloist and spot microphone, thus becoming an alternative to the "classic" MK 4.

 

Schoeps Microphones

About Manufacturer

The focus on high quality, reliability and neutral accurate sound has been the production philosophy of Schoeps Microphones since 1948. The simple elegance and clever engineering of their products boast a true passion for the art of microphone making and a tireless attention to detail. The Colette System is the largest modular mic system available offering twenty different capsules and various active accessories. The newest addition to the acclaimed Colette System is the CMC 6 xt which offers extended frequency response beyond 40 kHz. The CCM Series mics are the smallest phantom powered non-electret microphones in the world. Other notables from Schoeps include the M222 Tube microphone, the VMS 5U portable two channel mic preamp and M/S matrix, three extremely unique stereo mics, the KFM-360 Surround microphone and the Polarflex Microphone System that allows the user to emulate the characteristics of any microphone. Schoeps is unquestionably among the most innovative microphone manufacturers in the world, leading the way in many developments. Central to its design philosophy over the years is the company's insistence on absolute sound neutrality of the microphones. It is really no wonder that Schoeps has so many supporters, not only in the area of classical music recording and reinforcement, but also in film and television. No doubt part of its success is due to the fact that, in a space of only 1500 square meters, a total of 35 employees develop, manufacture and distribute the whole range of Schoeps products. Staff turnover is very small, which says much about the family atmosphere in the company. Many an employee has celebrated his or her 25th anniversary with Schoeps. Continuity is and will remain very important at Schoeps. Despite many outside offers, Ulrich Schoeps intends to continue the life's work of his father.
