Cheap way of getting figure of eight if you already own a pair of Mk-012 with cardioids
29.04.2014
Extremely cheap way of getting figure of eight response out of my matched pair of Oktava Mk-012s (I already own the 2 cardioid capsules required for this).

Seems to work very well even though the 2 microphones are quite spaced, very good off axis null response - impressive results when recording vocal and acoustic guitar at the same time, was able to get a good acoustic guitar take with very low level vocal bleed.

Not working for me
Joost van Dijk, 08.12.2019
I have a matched pair of Octava Mk-012 microphones and I'm very happy with the built- and audio quality, so I was confident to buy this product for use at field recordings and sound design.

Unfortunately, this design has serious phase-issues due to the distance of the capsules. This results in an extremely inaccurate stereo image.
I'm even hesitant to use the word 'stereo', because there was no distinguishable left or right at all.
Having read about the importance of the right distance between the capsules, I am pretty sure this wasn't just a not working unit, but rather a not working design.
Due to my busy scedule, it took me some months to be able to try different applications and research what the problem was.
By the time I gave up and sent an email to customer service, I couldnt return it.

I would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

+ great idea
+ Octava makes great microphones
- In reality this particular product is not working due to phase

Eher ein Y-Adapter, aber praktikabel sehr gut für z.B. 2 Trommeln oder Sprecher gleichzeitig
Woody, 12.05.2010
Dieser Adapter ergibt durch den zu großen Kapselabstand keine idealisierte Acht, sondern eher eine Art Doppelniere. Generell ist dieser Adapter deshalb bzgl. Phasing etwas fragwürdig, aber je nach Anwendung muss das Phasing nicht zum Problem werden. Für MS-Stereofonie verwende ich diesen Adapter daher nicht, aber z.B. zum Abnehmen von 2 Trommeln mit nur einem Mikrofon bei Kanalknappheit ist dies eine praktische Möglichkeit. Die nicht so stark ausgeprägte seitliche Dämpfung der Pseudo-Acht wirkt hierbei eher als Vorteil.
Im Normalfall verwendet man hierfür 2 "matched-Pair" Nierenkapseln. Es gibt ja Mikrofonsets von Oktava mit mehreren Kapseln, so dass man für das zweite Speiseteil ja noch eine Hypernieren- oder Kugelkapsel übrig hat.

Bei z.B. bei Podcasting mit zwei gegenüberliegenden Sprechern könnte vielleicht auch der Einsatz zweier Hypernierenkapseln gut funktionieren. Im Sinne eines Y-Adapters kann man auch noch die Swivels daran montieren, um noch flexibler zu sein.
