Thanks to its onboard LEA DSP Engine, the iXm Recording Microphone is the number one device to capture best quality interviews with perfect audio levels at the push of a button. Interchangeable microphone capsules give you the flexibility to choose a pickup pattern according to specific recording conditions.
Yellowtec’s PRO microphone head with cardioid recording pattern as a directed head is designed for recordings in environments with various noise levels. Thus, it is known as an allrounder which is a solid choice even for complex acoustic environments. Because of its sound pickup from the front, it filters background noise and with its optimal frequency response ensures brilliant voice recording and clarity. The cardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in various surroundings like events and outdoor locations with a lot of traffic noise. When using the head, there is a slight bass boost in near-field, but no common high proximity effect of directed microphones. Due to the high-pass-filter that is found inside the iXm recorder’s LEA Engine a perfect balance of frequency ranges is achieved.
As a dynamic microphone capsule, the head is characterized by its sound converter components’ ruggedness, especially at high sound pressure levels. Thus, its recording pattern is less sensitive in higher frequency ranges compared to an electret microphone head. In comparison the dynamic head’s sluggish membrane leads to different sounding recording results.
