X-Y Techniques for Hypercardioids & Cardioids

    The most commonly used technique is the x-y cardioid and hypercardioid. The microphone pair can be setup with an included angle between 60 and 120 degrees. The angle will determine the apparent width of the stereo image, the amount of reverberant sound and the bass response. The wider the angle the more natural the soundfield up to the point where the angle becomes too great and a hole appears in the center. 90 degrees provides good results with any cardioid or hypercardioid microphone.
