This capsule type has a flat frequency response for frontal sound incidence. This yields a very natural sound when recordings are made within the reverberation radius, where the direct sound (frontal incidence) predominates over the reverberant sound (random angles of incidence).
- omnidirectional pattern
- very flat frequency response
- corrected for a free sound field
- for use close to the sound source (frontal sound
- often preferred for relatively close miking of instruments, vocalists, etc.
