Vocal Mic Polar Pattern preference?

Hi Ken,

Is there a polar pattern that you like the best on vocal mics?

I hear a wonderful unobtrusive density without congestion, and it's hard for me to imagine that coming off a cardioid pattern.

Thanks for all the years of the most listen-able music ever made.

Hi Joey, I hate to disillusion you but a straight forward cardioid pattern on either a Neumann U67/87 or AKG 414 is all I use.
