Als ORTF in Kirchensaal
Uwe67, 03.03.2013
Etwas verhalten und mit einer Portion Skepsis erwartet, übertraf die Kombination aus SHURE KSM137 in ORTF Deckenabhängung an TASCAM DP24 per 2x30m SOMMERCALE SC-GALILEO 238PLUS (mit penibler Lötung und Isolation) an NEUTRIK XLR die Erwartungen deutlich!
Nicht nur das SNR-Verhältnis dieser Kombination beeindruckt, viellmehr noch die Erkenntnis, daß für den in der Praxis stattfindenden halbautomatisierten Laienbetrieb zur Erstellung eines simplen Audio-CD-Mitschnittes die Sprechermikrofone "Altar" und "Kanzel" nicht zwingend erforderlich sind.
Die akustische Auflösung / Localisation / Sprachverständlichkeit dieser Kombination verblüffte selbst bei sehr leise sprechenden, fünfjährigen Kindern im Weihnachtsspiel.
Der Dynamikumfang überzeugte letztlich vollkommen von dieser Kombi, denn parallel hierzu spielen Klavier, Chor, Blechblasorchester und Orgel nebeneinander sowie gemeinsam im Altarbereich.
Der qualitative Unterschied zu Kapseln von B&K oder DPA ist sicher vorhanden. Dazu bedarf es aber auch anderer Mischer.
Diese Kombination liefert bei 44/16 auf alle Fälle Broadcaststandard. Beeindruckend.

Bon micro mais...
Thibault8540, 11.03.2016
J'ai deux KSM137, pour divers enregistrements d'instruments acoustiques. Le son est très correct, manque bien entendu de graves (petite membrane oblige), mais il est assez fidèle.

Le seul reproche que j'aurais à lui faire est la tendance au larsen un peu trop présente. Ce n'est pas catastrophique, mais il partent plus vite que d'autres micro que j'utilise. Dommage !

Muy buen micro
tortosadrums, 12.07.2020
Micrófono muy versátil y de calidad. Grabo baterías online y me recomendaron este micro para Hi Hats o como apoyo para el dinámico de la caja, y la verdad es que estoy encantado. Saca un sonido muy limpio y ofrece varias posibilidades de recorte de frecuencias. Muy parecido al SM81 pero más pequeño.
