Cortiça is a phantom-powered omni-directional microphone with high sensitivity and very low noise. Housed in rugged small enclosure of natural cork and metal. Best used for recording scenarios that need clear and precise sound, even in noisy surroundings. This is a matched stereo set, where the microphones are frequency response and sensitivity matched to a minimum of 0.5dB @ 1kHz. One matched set includes two Cortiça microphones, two microphone mounts, two windscreens and one user manual.

Sonic Artefacts test each microphone they make and produce a frequency response diagram for every microphone. They use these tests to optimally match two different microphones from the same batch. The slight rise of around 8dB you see around the 3 – 9kHz mark  indicate that the microphone boosts these frequencies slightly. In the higher frequencies, a boost adds clarity and brightness to the sound. This can enhance the detail and presence of instruments like cymbals or violins that have significant high-frequency content. It also makes vocals sound more airy and open.
