The Emesser (ATE208) is a very small "figure-of-eight" microphone intended to convert any boom mike into a MS-stereo system on the fly. Featuring a high quality real condenser powered on 48V phantom, it delivers an enhanced dynamic range required for critical recordings.
Due to the MS-technology and the same mike being used for dialogue and ambience recordings seamless transitions between mono and stereo are feasible without alteration of the sound characteristics. The frequency response therefore was custom-tailored to match the acoustic pattern of typical boom mikes at 90° with the characteristic, distinct bass roll-off. The result is a distinguished stereo perception with pronounced presence and minimal negative phase correlation at the low end with exceptional good suppression of handling noise.
