MK 4 P

When you need your mics to give you exactly what they get, count on Schoeps. When combined with a Schoeps microphone amplifier, the MK 4 provides a classic cardioid pickup pattern, which makes it suitable for a wide range of recording applications. The MK 4’s flat frequency response makes it a very versatile performer, and the audio captured is free of coloration, whether it’s picked up from the front or the sides.

Microphone capsule for close pickup
– Cardioid for close speech pickup (under 20 cm)
– Low-frequency response rolloff (-6 dB at 100 Hz)
– Polar diagram identical as the MK 4
– Preferred applications: close speech pickup, public address systems
This cardioid capsule is designed for the very closest speech pickup, i.e. directly in front of the speaker’s mouth.
Its low-frequency rolloff is compensated by proximity effect. Thus it has (up to the point of its high-frequency emphasis) a flat frequency response for the speaker’s voice, while showing a rolloff at low frequencies for all sound that originates from a greater distance. As a result, background sounds are picked up less strongly than the person speaking.
