This capsule was purchased from a studio closing sale, where the capsule was never used, as they had an extensive collection of vintage Neumann tube SDCs to chose from. I have used the capsule for just 1 hour, only to make these test MP3 files below. The included capsule case is not new, as the capsule originally came as part of a complete KM130 system.
The KM100 series is part of Neuman's modular SDC system that has may useful accessories, including active caples, and the SBK 130 sound diffraction Sphere
Here are 26 quick, 1-take MP3 sound files to give you an idea of what to expect. These MP3 files have no compression, EQ or reverb
-- just straight signal, tracked with a KM100F (Filter) powering module into a TAB-Funkenwerk V78M preamp using
a Sony PCM DI flash recorder. MP3s are from Logic.
