Apologies beforehand if this is a really stupid question. I've Googled a bit, but I can't
seem to be able to find any real answer to this question (I guess subcards aren't as
widely used as cards or omnis).
As I'm a beginner in the whole recording field, I'm
currently building my mic collection. I recently had a chance to pick up a pair of Neumann
KM143s at a very good price. Those mics being subcardioids does, however, limit the amount
of documentation regarding their uses that I can find. I guess they'll do perfectly fine
as a spaced array, but what about coincident or near-coincident? Should I simply angle
them more than I would with cardioids to get them more off-axis to eachother, will they
work just like cards, but with a smaller stereo spread, or is the concept flawed from the
beginning, and should I pick up a pair of KM183s, or perhaps the cardioid capsules for the
Thanks in advance for any answers!
