WNAMM13: Roland Introduces Stereo Mic For Field Recording

Although field recorders use built-in mics for an all-in-one approach to recording, you sometimes need the flexibility and improved directional accuracy of a Cardioid microphone. For serious field recording, Roland says that the CS-15RS cardioid-type stereo microphone is a great match for their portable recorders such as the CD-2u, SD-2u, R-26, and R-05. It can be powered by an internal battery, or via the recorder's Plug In Power jack for mobile convenience. Bundled accessories include a desktop stand, windscreen, ¼-inch conversion cable, and a handheld grip that doubles as a mic stand mount.

A spokesperson told us, "Featuring a flat, wide frequency response for accurate, high-quality sound, the CS-15RS brings added flexibility when using your Roland recorder in remote applications. For recording sound effects and audio capture on video shoots, the cardioid pattern provides pinpoint audio pickup, with excellent rejection of off-axis sounds. To record large acoustic instrument ensembles, elevate and center the CS-15RS above the group to capture a wide stereo soundstage."
