I'm feeling decidedly chuffed that I managed to beat MS Excel into a grumbling submission and managed to get it to plot a complete set of first-order polar responses... so here, for your enjoyment and edification, is the plot -- (c)Hugh Robjohns 2021 !

Very nice - but should there be some numbers on the attenuation scale?

Good work that man!

Take a bow! :clap: :thumbup:

Could you put this somewhere easy to find so that it's easy to retrieve when the next person comes along with a question about the polar sensitivities of different types of mic?

:D Picky, picky...

Erm... yes... possibly.... :crazy:

I haven't quite figured out yet how to get the underlying to scale to conform to anything useful. Excel really isn't the right tool for this job... and I'm pleased I managed to get it to go this far.

At the moment, those circles are at roughly 1.2dB increments... I'll have another fiddle later when I have some time.

And yes, Mike, I'll copy this to the useful info archive. Good idea.
