Not magic, the Lewitt LCT 640 TS allows for polar patterns changes via software after recording too.

How does that stack up against the Redd?
I haven't tried out a new mic for the last 10 years or so.
The e47 was my favorite mic for me but Im afraid I have to try out the Redd :(
thanks!
I tried the later Bock 407 which I liked when it worked.
The REDD is a different vibe in that it's more modern with top end and a lovely fat bottom. The flexibility in sound is great too.

Favorite uses of the REDD? Have you tried it on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars?

You can derive any polar pattern from two cardioid signals, and then combining the signals with different phase relationships and levels....just using a regular mixer with a polarity flip switch for that matter. No plugins required. I am sure a google search will give details about setting that up.

Yes it sounds great on all of it. Especially drums!

The way it was described, there was only one signal recorded. I must have misunderstood.

If there are two signals recorded, then, I get it.

Good to know!
I love my e47 but may get it modded to the 407.
Still would love to hear that REDD!
Peace

The REDD has a great top end and a ton of body in the lower mids. Here - its always better with a sample:

Would love to hear an a/b to a U67 if anyone owns both; The U67 is my go to mic for vocals, electric and acoustic guitars; intrigued by the Redd, before I buy one I'd love to hear an a/b

Why does there always have to be an A/B?

Most A/B comparison's done by laymen are horribly unscientific in nature and thus conclusions drawn from them can be horribly wrong.

I think it is important to understand that both mics are very capable.

At some point you have to realize that the person and the song or the band that you are recording is the most important thing.

Just start recording and honing your skills as an engineer, (If that's what you hope to be) and stop kicking tires and wasting people's time.

In other words..
