The Ambient Emesser (ATE 308) is a very compact true condenser figure-eight microphone intended to convert aboom mic on the fly into a M/S stereo system. It allows you to add a bit of stage to the dialogue while also capturing textured room tones and ambience in pristine stereo with minimal change to your mic setup.
The high-quality real condenser delivers an enhanced dynamic range and is powered with 48V phantom,
The Emesser Set includes a Rycote mounting clip (ATEC-R) and a Y-loom (ATEK) to output both M and S signals in a standard balanced 5-pin XLR, as well as a windshield and bag.
The Emesser frequency response is custom-tailored to match the acoustic pattern of typical boom mics at 90° with the characteristic, distinct bass roll-off for seamless transitions between mono and stereo without alteration of the sound characteristics. The result is a distinguished stereo perception with pronounced presence and minimal negative phase correlation at the low end with exceptionally good suppression of handling noise.
The ATE 308 merges the preamp design of the Soundfish Hydrophone series with a redesigned capsule for a warm, natural sound with the perceived noise floor cut down more than half from the ATE 208.
