I should mention that I wasn’t aware that you had already purchased those mics when I posted my later questions. I thought you were still deliberating, so I was putting suggestions out there...

Dear OP - please do not let all the “you’d be better off...” comments deter you from your gear selection. There is literally nothing that you cannot record extremely well with the nagra and the Schoeps ORTF mic - you truly cannot buy higher quality recording gear than that. ORTF will give you excellent results in poor rooms and amazing cathedrals if you use it properly. It will capture a full orchestra and a piano duo with equal accuracy, detail, and clear imaging. Yes, some people prefer M/S, and some will ONLY record with true pressure omnis, and indeed, there are certain situations where M/S will excel and certain situations where omnis will give superior results, but again, there is literally nothing you cannot record well with the nagra and the Schoeps MTSC. Plush’s comment #18 above is spot on.

Yes about option of 2 omni mics. I was considering temperature and humidity conditions during outdoor recording, and thought Neumann KM133D use of titanium gives the microphone the ability to withstand high-humidity environments, and higher SPL handling abilities. Spaced at 30 cm recorded using Cantar Mini costs almost twice as much.
Neumann KM133D = $2700 x2= $5400
CantarMini = $8100
total = $13,500

Nagra 7 = $3800
Schoeps MSTC 64G ORTF = $3,333
total = $7133

If the recordist is interested in the Neumann mics, just acquire a Neumann DMI-2 portable and use the digital mics by plugging in to the Nagra Seven's AES in.

Neumann KMD 133 is quite a good sound.

No need for the Cantar product.
