Sennheiser makes MKH 800 Twin AES42 digital microphone compatible

Published:

Sennheiser has released a special adaptor cable to connect the Twin with the AES42 digital module of the MKH 8000 series.

The audio signals from the MKH 800 Twin’s two capsules are fed separately to the mixing console or portable mixer, enabling the engineer to set a variety of pick-up patterns at the console. This also makes it possible to record the two capsules separately and set the ideal directional charac­teristics for the recording at a later time.

The frequency response extends to 50kHz and the unit can be positioned inconspicuously. In addition to a nickel-coloured model there is a dark grey Nextel-coated version. The Nextel version is the same colour as the MKH 8000 series of microphones. 

The MZD 8000 AES42 digital module digitises the sound directly behind the microphone. The manufacturer reports that due to this immediate digitisation, the signal is not prone to cable losses, nor to signal disruptions caused by interference or cable capacitance. Using an AES42 interface, microphone settings, such as the low-cut filter and pre-attenuation, can be remote-controlled. Both capsules are kept totally separate through the module as a digital stereo signal, so only a single MZD 8000 is needed to digitise both capsules of the MKH 800 Twin.
