You might find that the distortion like sound is actually present at the source and accentuated by certain microphones or capsules.

I had not considered this because MK22 polar plots don't give any indications of it and I've had excellent results in other vocal applications.

I also asked him about possible limitation from 48v polarization to which he replied that in this case it "is not a problem."

Next time I'll try an MK21 or may pull out a trusty old MK4.
