We’ve educated our blog readers on the importance of Operating Principles and Frequency Response as part of our “Understanding Microphone Specifications” video series and now, in Part III, we review Polar Pattern. A microphone’s Polar Pattern defines how it responds to sounds coming from different directions. Understanding this specification will help you maximize pick up of desired sound sources, while minimizing feedback and background noise. Watch as we demonstrate mics with the following polar patterns: omnidirectional, unidirectional, cardioid, supercardioid and bidirectional.

Last week we launched a video series to help our blog readers understand how microphones work and discussed the Operating Principle in Part I. In Part II, we define Frequency Response—the range of frequencies a microphone can reproduce—and explain the differences between mics with flat response vs. shaped response. Watching the video will help you make better choices when buying microphones and will also ensure you understand how to get the best results.
