Features and Controls to Tailor Your Sound

Several built-in controls let you tailor the shotgun’s performance to your needs and achieve the best possible sound quality in a variety of situations. Two selectable High-Pass Filters (75 and 150Hz) eliminate distracting deep bass frequencies like the rumble from HVAC, footsteps and traffic noise that can ruin a recording. A +6dB High-Frequency Boost compensates for frequencies that are lost when you use furry wind protection or in a blimp and increases vocal intelligibility when using only a foam windscreen. A -10dB Pad makes it possible to capture loud sounds without clipping. All of the buttons are illuminated so you can easily see the settings, and an On/Off button changes color based on power source and with a double press of the power button, the 5 button indicators show remaining battery power of Li-Ion battery. To ensure you can begin filming quickly even after you turn the mic off, all of your settings are saved when you turn the mic back on.
