U89 cardioid x2?
« on: June 15, 2024, 06:15:40 PM »

I have an U89, which (of course) has 5 polar patterns. However, the "circular" switch that selects the polar pattern has two settings for cardioid (one between the wide and the hyper and another between the firgure8 and the omni).

Is there any difference between these two cardioid positions?

There is not.
The user manual describes just five polar patterns (omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper cardioid, figure eight). But as the two "in-between" patterns (wide cardioid, hyper cardioid) are both "on the way" to cardioid, ((i.e. one step away from the single front-side-only capsule polarization), adding a cardioid option twice was convenient, if not a bit overkill.
