Schoeps MK 22
The “Open Cardioid” pickup pattern was introduced by SCHOEPS in 2008. It lies between the classic cardioid and the wide cardioid, achieving both a fair amount of directivity and very natural sound quality. Many years of experience as professional recording engineers with a range of Schoeps cardioids have played a large role in the development process. Meanwhile, the Schoeps MK 22 has become a preferred soloist and spot microphone, thus becoming an alternative to the “classic” MK 4.
- New directional pattern: Open Cardioid
- Optimal combination of directionality (MK 4 cardioid) and warm sound characteristics (MK 21 wide cardioid)
- Natural sound quality, due to a highly consistent polar diagram across the frequency range
- Popular for use as a spot or soloist’s microphone, as the mid microphone for M/S, or as a main microphone pair e.g. at a spacing of 21 cm, angle +/- 55°
