HYPER & OMNI
Add versatility to your pencil mics with these must-have capsules
Our STC-1 and STC-1S pencil condensers are fitted with cardioid capsules as standard, but these can be easily exchanged for our optional Omni (omnidirectional) and Hyper (hypercardioid), giving you three mics in one (or six mics in two, in the case of the STC-1S stereo pair).
These capsules offer a quick and easy way to expand your mic locker and extend your recording capabilities.

"We were already getting fantastic results from our STC-1 mics, both live and in the studio, but with the addition of the Hyper and Omni capsules we could do so much more with them. They sound amazing!"
David Prior, Falmouth University
Hyper and Omni will open up a world of creativity to you and your pencil mics
HYPER & OMNI IN USE
The omnidirectional Omni capsule will completely open up the area of sound that the mic can pick up, allowing you to position the mic higher up or further away from the recording source. It will give you stunning results on ensemble recording and turns the STC-1 into an outstanding overhead or room mic.
The hypercardioid Hyper capsule is ideal when you need a tighter pickup, for example where you need to focus in on one source within a group and reduce spill from other instruments or voices (eg, recording hi-hat within a drumkit or a violin within a quartet).
When used with our STC-1 and/or STC-1S pencil condenser microphones, the OMNI capsule is ideal for overhead/room and ensemble recording while the HYPER capsule adds extra definition to solo percussion instruments (eg, hi-hat).
"When recording London Contemporary Voices in a Shoreditch church, we did the whole thing using an STC-1S above the choir and a single STC-1 with Omni capsule up high at the back of the church. The sound was absolutely incredible… no one could believe it came from three such small microphones!"
