Double M-S Technique 5.0 Surround Shotgun Microphone

Surround sound for broadcast and film has become quite popular, but creating realistic multi-channel soundtracks in post-production from traditional microphone sources has proven problematic, time consuming, and unnatural. The WMS-5 delivers realistic Surround sound with minimal setup time, and is easily mounted on the camera, boom pole, or pistol grip.

Sanken’s WMS-5 delivers reliable, phase coherent 5-channel sound using an exclusive Sanken design based on the well known M-S method of recording, providing 5 surround outputs signals.

The “M” capsule is used for both Center with shotgun directivity and front Left and Right. The “S” signal is utilized for both front Left and Right and rear Left Surround, Right Surround. The rear “M” capsule is used for Left Surround and Right Surround. All capsules are aligned vertically on the same axis for precise phase coherence.
