    A type of microphone pick-up pattern. Similar in shape to a cardioid pattern, except that the sides have the greatest amount of rejection, as opposed to a cardioid pattern where the rear of the microphone has the least sensitivity.

    A microphone pick up sensitivity pattern where the least sensitive pick up point is more than 90 degrees but less than 150 degrees off axis
    (See Cardioid)
