POLAR EXPLORATION

Our STC-3X microphone offers three polar patterns – selected via a switch on the rear of the mic – which will open up a world of creativity for you and your recordings.

In figure-of-eight mode (switch to the left), the STC-3X picks up sound only to the front and rear of the mic, creating intimate-sounding results on instruments such as solo violin or flute, and can also be used to capture face-to-face interview or conversation.

In cardioid mode (switch in the centre), STC-3X picks up sound to the front and sides of the mic. This gives incredible results on vocals, guitar, guitar amp, piano, drums and other acoustic instruments. Its pickup is wide enough for you to record vocals and guitar at the same time, making STC-3X Pack an ideal tool for singer/songwriters.

In omni mode (switch to the right), STC-3X picks up sound from all directions meaning you can place it further out in a space or hang it overhead to capture a natural image of whatever you’re recording. This works especially well for piano, drumkit, ensemble and choirs.
