@Johncdvorak @adam AKG has gone a bit down hill though. They are owned by Hartman, but Harman was bought out by Samsung, and then they shut down their Austrian factories. All the EX-AKG folks went and started a new company called Austrian Audio, and they released a mic that is phenomenal called the OC818. It has the same dual capsule design, the same multi-polar pattern feature, but now you can output the capsules separately and adjust the Poolar Pattern in post production which is wild!
@dave @Johncdvorak @adam Yeah. These are all studio mics made for use in rooms that are designed to sound awesome. I believe they do all have Hyper Cardioid polar pattern settings in there so you’d an limit pick up from the sides compared to cardioid.
When you output both capsules from the Austrian Audio OC818 and start to manipulate it in post, you can adjust the polar pattern based on certain frequency bands. Cardioid in bass. Hyper cardioid in Mids. Omni in Highs. Etc. HOW COOL!?
@CSB @email@example.com No it wouldn’t. The SM7b has quite a wide polar pattern and picks up quite a bit of room tone. The MV7 does a good job at background noise rejection. However, no microphone is magic and will still pick up background noise. Dynamic mics just generally do a slightly better job at rejecting that noise compared to condensers.
@CSB @firstname.lastname@example.org Those probably do better at background noise rejection. A lot of these have very limited frequency responses (similar to a telephone) so they sound pretty bad. Since they don’t pick up as wide a frequency range, it won’t pick up noise and reverberation as much either.
@bandrew I'm obviously not keeping up with current events, thanks for the update regarding the OC818 -- WOW. This looks like a fun product.
