Which caps/config should I use?
« on: September 03, 2003, 05:45:16 PM »
I will be taping Springsteen at the baseball stadium here later in the month.

My seat is 2nd row center in Sec. C5

Would cards XY do the trick? I can probably borrow hypers for my Oktavas (also asking 'hippies' if I can borrow his 140/50s.) if I have to.

What would you do?

run cards, the hypers will pick up rear sound and when you are stealthing with the mics on the head (which is where I am assuming you will be running them), you will want as little rear noise as possible.

In general, cards will reject more rear sound, hypers will reject more side sounds with a node of pickup in the rear.

From the reference section:

Naiant IPA (tinybox format) >

Can someone explain the graph to me?  I understand the degrees around the outside, but what does each smaller ring inside the main represent?  Frequency?

The closer to the outer edge the more range of frequency?
