Tolles Mikro!
monstair, 27.09.2012
Endlich etwas in der klanglichen Liga zwischen Neumann und Schoeps. Nicht ganz so dunkel wie KM140/KM184 nicht ganz so hell wie ein CMC6 mit MK4, eben zwischen drin.
Der Grundcharakter wirkt natürlich und plastisch, das Grundrauschen ist völlig irrelevant für kritische Aufnahmen im Diffusfeld. Abgesehen davon - die Verarbeitungsqualität ist einwandfrei, das Finish völlig Gala-/Orchestertauglich auch nicht ganz unerheblich ...

Awesome performance for sound effects and ambiences
11.01.2016
I use this pair of MKH 8040 all the time When recording sound effects and ambiences. In my sound effects recording room I Particularly enjoy That They capture frequencies up to 50 kHz so During sound design pitch down manipulation they keep fidelity in the high frequency range since Previously inaudible sound is brought into audible range. I've put together a video Comparing what difference the 50 kHz husband Compared to most microphones That capture at up to 20 kHz: https: // [LINK]

For ambiences I use this pair of microphones in ORTF configuration in a Blimp Rycote.

Very manageable size, great build quality and They sound great. Quite price, however.

Jeden Cent wert
Arno D., 24.04.2017
Ich nutze das Paar MKH 8040 hauptsächlich für Schlagzeug-Overheads (Studio und live), sowie ein einzelnes MKH für Gesang (Studio). Das Eigenrauschen spielt bei diesem Anwendungszweck keine Rolle.
Insbesondere beim Gesang ist mir eine möglichst neutrale Übertragung (= keine "Verfärbung") wichtig, was dieses Mikrofon absolut gewährleistet.
Weiterhin sei die Baugröße (etwas größer als ein XLR-Stecker) erwähnenswert, was bei TV-Übertragungen eine Rolle spielen kann.

Benuzte die beiden für Field Recordings!
Die Kapseln lösen sehr fein auf. Alles stimmt, Frequenzgang ausgewogen, sehr rauscharm und mit MZF 8000 perfekt für meinen Außeneinsatz. Dabei praktisch klein und robust. Mit MixPre 6 II im Gepäck macht es jetzt so richtg Spaß.
