The CU-44X MkII has a unique 2-way capsule, one for the bass and one for the high frequencies. This special design with dual titanium diaphragms is a meticulously engineered microphone which produces a completely transparent and high-resolution sound suitable for today’s advanced high sampling digital recordings. The CU-44X MkII also features a unique capsule mounting scheme to ensure phase coherency between the two capsules. The titanium membranes of the CU-44X MkII are immune to the effects of humidity and temperature change, resulting in a totally consistent response, regardless of the recording environment. The CU-44X MkII conveniently houses the 48V phantom power supply within the body of the microphone.
The CU-44X MkII’s frequency response is totally flat not only on axis, but also at 90 degrees, and even at 135 degrees. This capacity is essential in maintaining absolute sonic transparency. The smooth cardioid polar pattern and uniform response over the entire frequency range allows the CU-44X MkII to capture both the designated audio target as well as the naturally reflected sounds, with identical optimum response.
The CU-44X MkII has the desirable characteristics of a transformerless design, achieving superior transient response and vivid sonic imagery. This revolutionary microphone has a maximum input level of 140dB (1% THD), making it capable of withstanding extremely high sound pressure levels without distortion.
