Schoeps MSTC 64 U
The MSTC 64 is a stereo microphone specifically arranged with the ORTF technique. It is one of Schoeps bestsellers and features excellent stereo image with impressive spatial and localization qualities.
This microphone consists of a T-shaped two-channel microphone amplifier, which two paired MK 4 cardioid capsules are screwed onto. They are arranged at a distance of 170 mm at an angle of 110° to each other, as required for the ORTF method.
The MSTC 64 is particularly impressive in that it usually also gives very good results without spot microphones. In addition, its placement is relatively unimportant, making it suitable for the rather inexperienced or hasty user. Set-up is quick and easy, because only a single stand and cable are required and the capsule distance and the offset angle of the capsules to each other don’t need be adjusted.
At the output of the MSTC 64 is an XLR-5M plug to which e.g. the stereophonic cable KS 5 U, or the breakout AK SU/2U is connected.
