Very generous, it was more a lack of understanding than remembering. Thanks for your patience, I get it now. Fascinating and ingenious... J

The Dooley and Streicher paper (link above in my previous post) explains it all - and includes excellent diagrams that show the resultant left/right stereo pattens with different mid mics at different gain levels - excellent. :thumbup:

Yes thanks John, and it also throws in vintage English such as ‘acoustic intercourse’ to add to the entertainment. All round good value :clap:

Am I the only one who when reading the name of this mic has a mind which instantly jumps back in time to the days of germanium transistors?

Or am I just getting too old? ;)

Not old at all.

The definition of someone who is "old" is someone who is more than 10 years older than you.

So - you never get old, just more experienced. :thumbup: :bouncy:

My late lamented grandmother regularly used to help out at mealtimes in the local old people's home. And she would always say she was going in to help the 'old people'... when many were younger than she was (77 at the time)!
