The MCE72 features 2 cardioid elements mounted at an XY angle of ±60 degrees to the microphone axis. The result is a wide recording range and an accurate reproduction of the sound source, within the stereo field. The elements produce a wide and linear frequency response resulting in uncolored, high-quality recordings. The MCE 72 is suitable for stereo recording in home studio applications, concert recordings with DAT or MD, film, video and interviewing.
For musicians the MCE 72 is an excellent microphone for assessing performance in rehearsals, production and concerts. For stereo ambient sound recording, the microphone is suitable for direct connection to most camcorders, DAT and MD recorders. The optional EA 19/25 elastic suspension suppresses footfall sound effectively. Using the optional special EA 86 elastic suspension with a flash holder, the MCE 72 can be mounted onto the "hot shoe" of a camcorder directly but remains isolated from noise caused by the video head and the drive.
The MCE 72 is powered by a standard 1.5 V battery (AA-size). An LED indicates when the battery needs to be replaced. The plug-in cable enables the connectors on the MCE 72 to be changed quickly.
