Add more patterns and versatility to your 3 Zigma mic body!
Includes one 3 Zigma CHI Small Capsule-Module of your choice (cardioid, hyper-cardioid, diffuse-field omni, or free-field-omni) in wood box.
The 3 Zigma CHI System is designed to be an extremely flexible platform offering the demanding engineer a range of sounds going from the most classic vintage toned capsules to the most true to the source, "straight wire", modern specs capsules. Made to be reliable and robust, this microphone system must be regarded as a long term investment, and one that can only grow: indeed, as you add more capsules and accessories, your CHI system will expand and offer more options thus enhancing your recording, helping you getting the sounds you're after in the studio and generally speaking, broadening your sound "palette" when recording.
- Cardioid: A very typical SD capsule, probably the one you'll use most often. Straight cardioids pattern with nice, flat frequency response with only minimal treble peak, giving a very true and neutral sound with just enough reach and directionality for most jobs. The proximity effect is totally predictable.
- Hypercardioid: A more directional version of the Cardioid capsule, with more proximity effect. The treble response is still very realistic and to some people, will actually sound more "real" than the cardioid.
- Diffuse Omni: to be used when a relatively flat treble is required off axis, for instance when the sound of the room needs to be accurately represented (darker source).
- Free Field Omni: to be used when a relatively flat treble is required on axis, for instance when the source needs to be accurately represented (darker room sound).
