Remote control and power supply in one
Make yourself comfortable.
The user interface on the remote control with integrated power supply allows a quick setup of polar pattern, pre-attenuation, and low-cut.
It is easy to check or change the settings on the remote power supply unit, even in complete darkness due to its illuminated user interface.
Here are your five classic patterns.
A polar pattern affects how much room sound you end up recording. But switching your polar pattern not only changes the directivity, it also alters the frequency response, resulting in a different sound.
You can also control the proximity effect, and have it pronounced or reduced according to your application.
