Hi all,

I was wondering if some of you can help me out with some suggestions.

I'm searching for some pencile type ( small diagram) figure 8 microphones.

I basically need them for outdoors

I know akg have some but i have troubles finding some on the internet. (it is showing me only large diagram solutions).

Does any of you use small figure 8 mics?
If so please tell me which ones or perhaps someone can give me advise.

Buget: well not to expensive because their asses are going to be kicked and won't live long... ( don't ask) :D
quality: they don't have to be high end audio

Thank you

- Angelie

I've never owned a figure-8 pencil condenser, only large-diaphragm figure-8 mics. I know that Oktava makes a small-diaphragm capsule that will fit their MK-012, but those aren't particularly inexpensive. I'm not sure how easy it will be to find low priced small diaphragm condensers with a figure 8 pattern. Good luck.

You've got me intrigued. What are you using them for? https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif

Ok i will not answer that

uh ok I will tell you :p

We are planning to do a ambisonic / format b recording of a wild water rafting experience ....... from inside the boat https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif and convert it to surround sound
So the change of drowning the microphones is a almost 70% https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_bravo.gif
It is going to be for a rafting simulator

ok well I'm going to continue my search , thank you for the reply Mike

Wow. Sounds like a wild project! Hopefully, you'll get what you need on the first take, because your mics might not make it to take 2. https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mdr.gif

Just a little update :

We found some microphones which we can modify to our need.
We choose.......
.. I'm almost to afraid to name them https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif


2 sets of 2 behringer c2 matched mics for 120 euros. They fitted in our budget and are great to rebuild them. A friend of mine is going to build a tetrahedron construction for them including brackets for the electronics.

Nothing much at this moment but i just wanted to let you know...

I know it is not fig 8 but we are going for the format A solution now and we don't need fig 8 anymore

Good mics for throwing overboard. https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif
