@dawnstarau Welcome to the joys of location recording. :) Still, a supercardiod pattern will do a lot to help with that.

@dawnstarau … You can pull up the levels below 100Hz with EQ, but then your signal-to-noise ratio will work against you.

@dawnstarau “Distance” is not a thing. Microphones don’t understand distance. That’s also a good mic and the shock mount is very useful.
