Hardware Sanken Chromatic CMS-50 Compact Mid Side (M-S) Stereo Shotgun Microphone

The unique CMS-50 is a 5.4′′ compact stereo condenser shotgun that weighs only 4.6oz. The mic is especially suited to users that require the versatility and smooth stereo that an M-S design provides. Tight or wide patterns and premium sound, it can be camera mounted without interfering with even a short lens, yet still provide the quality of audio demanded by today’s professionals.
It is an M-S (Mid-Side) configuration which makes it possible to adjust the stereo width from mono to stereo at the mixer or in post production. The shotgun includes two outputs, a cardioid and figure of 8, which can be fed into the mixer for width adjustments. If both outputs are recorded then width can be managed in post.
Like all Sanken shotguns it is rugged and dependable with a wide range of applications where sound clarity and noise rejection are critical requirements.
