Sony ECM100U is a hi-resolution cardioid electret condenser pencil mic. ??
The 17mm diaphragm in ECM100U captures a flat and wide frequency response of 20 to 50,000 Hz.
As also found in either the omnidirectional version ECM100N, or the dual-capsule C100, all that extra information in the top end helps ECM100U truly lay claim to being a ‘high resolution’ studio microphone.
It allows your hi-res signal chain to breathe easily when it’s time to mix – or even make critical microphone placement decisions at the start of your session.
In control of the controls?
You’ll want to make sure your studio is not entirely digital to use these controls…ie; you’ll need a pen to reach the switches, as they’re recessed well-enough to ensure there is no chance of ever accidentally adjusting them when you’re fine-tuning your microphone placement.
Perhaps someone at Sony design HQ had a bad experience in the studio once. Anyway, you have a switch for PAD (0 or -10dB), and Low Cut (flat or lowcut).??
