typically within ?0.5dB from 20Hz-20kHz. More importantly, its impulse
response is faster and cleaner than any other recording microphone
except for the Earthworks QTC1. Its clean impulse performance allows
the QTC30 to transduce wave forms exactly giving you a true and
accurate representation of sonic events as they happen in the air. What
this means for you is stunning, lifelike realism. It offers you the
experience of being there.
The QTC30 is among the best possible choices for ambient room miking
