The CCM 2S exhibits a slight high-frequency emphasis for frontal sound incidence, with only a slight roll-off of high frequencies off axis and in the reverberant sound field.
The frequency response characteristic of the CCM 2S falls between that of the CCM 2 and the CCM 2XS, making this microphone suitable for a wide range of applications.
- omnidirectional pattern
- slight high-frequency rise to compensate for losses at moderate recording distances
- for a very wide range of recording applications
- often preferred for spaced stereophony and Decca Tree arrangements
The CCM 2S has proven particularly useful in two- and three-microphone stereo arrays, where its placement near the reverberation radius of the sound field presents a sonically balanced pickup favored by many recording engineers. This model has become our most popular pressure transducer.
For spaced microphone (A/B) stereo recording and especially the Decca Tree method, KA 40 accessory spheres are recommended.
