Entries found for search: hypercardioid microphone

hypercardioid microphone : The narrowest of the unidirectional patterns, the hypercardioid is a variation on the cardioid microphone pick-up pattern which is most sensitive at the front and sides, while rejecting sounds entering 110-250˚ to the rear, with a small lobe of sensitivity at 180˚ to the rear. The pick-up pattern of a hypercardioid is narrower than that of a supercardioid , and is somewhat similar to that of a figure-eight mic, but the response is asymmetrical in that the hypercardioid has greater sensitivity to sound arriving at the front of the capsule than to sound arriving a the rear. See acceptance angle. Also called a cottage loaf mic in the UK, for reasons related to bread.
