The MTP 940’s comprehensive features include three switchable polar patterns – wide cardioid, cardioid and supercardioid to match a range of applications from lead vocals to choirs and on to classic unplugged situations with a singer and an acoustic instrument. A three-step high-pass filter allows for limiting the influence of the proximity effect. The three-position switchable preattenuation also allows use in extreme SPL environments. The externally biased large-diaphragm MTP 940 CM features a 135 dB dynamic range with a very low self-noise level of 9 dB.
