CQ
More versatile than you think!
Chris Q. 01.09.2021
Omni mics are often overlooked by modern recorders who are afraid of things sounding "roomy". But the lack of proximity effect makes placement very forgiving, the bass response is very good and the room sound in an omni is often much nicer than the boxy room tone of an off-axis cardioid microphone.

These in particular were a solution to a few common issues I have:

Mic'ing a physically large acoustic guitar and avoid boomy soundholes: Good sound, makes "stereo" micing of the guitar easier in that sound placement is much more forgiving. Not necessarily appropriate in a live band context.

AB room mics for Drums - where you want a wide room sound, I often feel cardioids are a mistake because the bass response tends to be very uneven. I typically place a pair of these on the floor, good for the "Albini Drum Room" thing.

These are the widely believed to be the best sounding capsules for the Oktava MK-012 microphones as they exhibit a fairly flat, open sound which works really well for vocals, and room mic applications. Due to these being omni caps, there is no proximity effect, which can be both a blessing and a curse, although I find it to be very useful on voices that already sound full and are not in need of any bass boost, that may be provided by a cardioid capsule. One of the capsules I received was a little tricky to attatch to the mic body but apart from that, the build quality is very good and these feel very sturdy!

Sehr gutes Arbeitswerkzeug

Bei einer Aufnahme einer mittelgroßen Kirchenorgel konnten die beiden Kugelkapseln einen rauscharmen und sehr natürlichen Klang abliefern. Ideal für AB-Aufnahmetechnik mit ca. 3-5m Abstand zum Instrument. Eine sinnvolle Ergänzung zum Stereopaar mit Nieren.
