Mostly neutral. There is a definite "upper-most-presence" thing going on, but I tend to use the VM44 as a mid-to-far field mic which counteracts that a little.
I'd love to check out the omni capsule for it, actually. The peak is supposed to happen a little lower...and it's an omni which I prefer for distance recording in general.
We have a DC96B, too. Very cool mic, but VERY different. The VM44's a lot less different.
