Multi-Pattern Microphones: What, Where and How?

Is it really a cardioid world? While the cardioid polar pattern is undoubtedly the most often used in live sound applications (after all, the ubiquitous Shure SM57 and SM58® microphones are both cardioid types), there’s a case to be made for models that, with the flip of a switch (or the changing of a head) […]
