Great point.

I just took a 180 from the original plan and bought CA14 cardioids, a CA1000, and Roland R07 from a member. I think the advice here probably saved me from blowing my first couple shows next month.

I would not use omni mics to record events in stadiums. Cardioid mics would be much better suited.

I've used omnis in stadiums/arenas and the results aren't really any different than you'd expect from a smaller space, if anything still a little more forgiving than cards. If they were going on a stand I'd agree, but my body acts as a natural baffle, helping to reject anything I consider to be "off axis"
