It has been proven to be outstanding in all of these applications and more. Its uncolored sonic characteristics allow you to decide how an instrument or vocal will sound in the mix.

CAD Audio M179 Variable Pattern Switch Functions

The pattern control knob on the M179 has a center detented cardioid position. This allows the user to quickly and consistently lock the microphone in a "hard" cardioid pattern. By turning the know clockwise from the center, the pattern varies continuously from cardioid to subcardioid through omnidirectional. By turning the knob counterclockwise from the center, the pattern varies continuously from cardioid to hypercardioid through bidirectional. This allows the user to adjust to the optimal pattern needed for almost any recording or live situation.

The CAD Audio M179 Microphone offers many features normally found in only the most expensive microphones. With the M179, you get these features at a very affordable price.
