This capsule type is a true dipole (bidirectional) transducer, operating with a single diaphragm. Its main axis is at a right angle to the capsule, and is marked at 0° and 180° with a red and a black dot respectively.
– pure pressure-gradient transducer – figure-8 pattern with near-ideal consistency across the frequency range – side-addressed (pickup perpendicular to the microphone body) – optimal for use in M/S a
When M/S stereo recordings are made, the 0° axis normally faces to the left as viewed from behind the microphone setup. The “8“ engraved on the top of the housing should be aligned on its side s
