Microphones that have multiple polar pattern options can be used for different scenarios. The more patterns that a microphone supports, the more versatile it is.
A hyper-cardioid or super-cardioid pattern is a narrower version of the cardioid pattern. It captures audio in front of the microphone at a narrow angle and is particularly useful when you wish to record a single audio source in a loud environment.
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
The included software features DSP (digital signal processing) presets which process the audio for different use-cases, such as when recording vocals or acoustic instruments.
An omni polar pattern captures audio from every direction. It is particularly useful when the audio source is moving around, or if you wish to capture the audio from a wide sound source such as a group of people.
