Los Angeles, CA (October 20, 2020)—Timed with this year’s virtual online AES 2020 convention, Sanken Microphones has shipped its new CUX-100K Cardioid or Omnidirectional super wide range professional microphone.
The new microphone builds on the history of the company’s Chromatic omni-mode CO-100K, adding the ability to change modes with three settings: Cardioid (Far), Cardioid (Near) and Omni modes.
The CUX-100K is intended for a variety of high-resolution, high-sample rate recordings, both in spatial or close-miking applications. The original CO-100K was designed around supporting the concept of 100 kHz high-resolution recording, and Sanken suggests it is suitable for ensemble, solo, vocals and orchestral mic arrays, Foley, location sound effect recording and acoustic instruments.
Because of the way in which analog to digital converters operate, the CUX-100K reportedly takes advantage of the heightened frequency response of new hi-resolution digital audio formats, and is said to be appropriate for use in X-Y, ORTF, or Decca tree overheads for capturing the spatial reality of specialized acoustic spaces.
The CUX-100K has a MSRP of $3,400.00.
