Recording Vocals with U 89
Author: Victor Hakansson

Hi!
I'm wondering what's the most common choice of polar patterns when recording vocals with an U 89. Also wondering what the different shapes really do with the sound when recording traditionally pop-rock vocals with pop-shield and 20cm distance. What is your main choice and why? (Please, only answers relevant to the U 89 with its specific frequency range and features)

I often, when doing close, whispering voice overs, end up using the Omni-mode because it seems to add a lot of colour and warmth. Is this "normal", what is the "standard" (if we for once pretend there is one suitable adjustment for recording vocals)

Any ideas and tips would be great!
