Neumann is set to unveil three new digital models with integrated DSP to its KM series of miniature microphones at AES in San Francisco, Oct. 6-8. The modular KM 183 D, KM 184 D and KM 185 D combine omnidirectional, cardioid and supercardioid capsules with the KM D output stage to offer different directional characteristics.
The Neumann A-to-D converter is located next to the capsule in the new microphone models. All standard sampling frequencies, from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz, are supported. The integrated DSP functions--including gain, a compressor/limiter with de-esser and a peak limiter--can be configured and controlled remotely via the DMI-2 digital microphone interface and the remote control software.
Neumann, headquartered in Old Lyme, Conn., is additionally offering Connection Kits to permit easy connection of the digital KM series microphones to S/PDIF and AES/EBU interfaces without the DMI-2. A plug-in power supply is included as a standard feature and a battery pack is available as an option.
The DMI-2 digital microphone interface has recently been updated with support for the 192 kHz sampling rate, AES 11 synchronization capability and greatly improved jitter performance.
