For now my mic collection is basically limited to a CMIT5, and after I rented a CCM8 to combine an MS with CMIT for a job I fell in love with the sound. So I want to buy one, mostly for booming but sometimes on tripod.
My mic wishlist in long term is in constant changing, but consists of:
- 2x cmc6
- cmcxt(for sfx downing high sample rate purpose)
- 2x mk4
- schoeps fig.8
And sadly will be a slow acquisition.
My current thinking on this:
1.very practical and lightweight for booming.
- after I can buy 1x cmc6 with 2x mk4 instead of a stereo kit 2x cmc6 with 2x mk4.
- in future if I buy a cmcxt to use it with a mk4 or mk41 I could buy another cmcxt to use with mk8 and make a ms with high frequencies..
- not so practical and lightweight as CCM8, and every weight plus gets heavier with time when booming.
Basically the pros of MK8 are related with future acquisition, and as I said earlier my wishlist is always in constant changing, mostly the priorities.. ( I really don't know if I really will buy a cmctx.. and if I buy it, if it's make sense to use a cmcxt for MS.. or how should result if I use cmcxt in a MS but only on Mid mic ( ex: cmcxt+mk4or41 with ccm8)
So the point of this question is What are the pros and cons of buying a CCM8 or a mk8 with cmc6??
