omni or cardiod?

I've got a gig tonight. I am going to film it. Channel one on the camera will be a shure ksm 144 and channel two will be board feed. Should I se the shure to cardiod or omni. The bar is behind the camera.

That should awnser your question I guess, set it to cardio.
But if u'r going to use the board feed as main sound, and the mic as "ambient" mic, an omni would be a better choice.

hey!

Difficult...It depends on how the room looks. It depends on how much you want the sound of the audience and also how you want to control the sound-source after words... I would not suggest a omni, and a trick is to take your finger and shove it u...just kidding. Take one finger and ut it against your ear and walk around and listen to where it sounds the best and then take the both of your ears and listen to where you should put your omni....
