Las Vegas, NV (April 16, 2015)—Sanken Microphones has introduced its new CSR-2 shotgun microphone at NAB 2015.
The CSR-2 combines the long acoustic tube and proprietary rectangular capsule design for directivity with a switchable rejection of the mid and low frequency range on the side and rear. In the off position, the switch reportedly provides a wider image and a warmer room tone.
In order to reduce the sensitivity at 90 degrees off-axis, the front capsule pattern is super-cardioid. It captures the low-mid frequencies that have a longer wavelength than the acoustic tube in the rear of the microphone, with no line microphone effects.
In addition, the CSR-2 uses a second-order pressure gradient array, comprised of two microphone capsules. Their output is added to the line (front) microphone signal when the rear rejection switch is in the "on" position to suppress low frequency background sensitivity.
