The Audix i-5 instrument microphone is an ideal solution for sound reinforcement and recording applications. The dynamic capsule features a cardioid polar pattern with a linear frequency response, capable of accurately reproducing signal at high sound pressure levels (SPL). The cardioid pattern effectively minimizes noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the capsule, reducing feed-back and audio leakage caused by adjacent instruments. The i-5 is ideal for capturing snare drum, percussion, guitar and bass cabinets, horns and vocals. Features Linear Frequency Response Tailored frequency response of 50Hz to 16kHz accentuates mid-range and mid-high frequencies while eliminating low-frequency noise. High SPL Handling The i-5 is designed to accurately reproduce high audio peak levels without noise and distortion. Cardioid Polar Pattern The cardioid polar pattern attenuates signal at the sides of the capsule. The result eliminates noise and ambiance caused by speakers, monitors and adjacent instruments and vocalists.
