What cuts flowing water noise when interviewing near a river?

What nearly eliminates room reflections in a large church?

Why, the new Schoeps Super CMIT, of course.

DSP microphone with unique characteristics

Hear for yourself here

I haven't dared check the price yet, but it should be a lot less than say a Sony EX1.

Schoeps microphones are just wonderful for sound quality - clarity without harshness.

Gotta say the above sample page is a good way to sell mics.

I'm very happy with our Sanken CMS-10. I've been using it to record my feeble attempts at foley. Good mics make so much difference. We bought that mic at the same time as we bought our first Z1s.

Do I have to say what a Z1 is worth today and what that mic is still worth today?

I like my Sanken CS-3e also. Great sound, phenomenal side rejection also in the lower frequencies, and no audible change in frequency response across a reasonable pickup angle, which greatly helps on tough takes.

But I think the Super CMIT both sounds better and rejects side noise more effectively.

At a price.
