My question has to do with whether the diaphragm of a side-address condenser picks up sound evenly on all 360 degrees, or if it "hears" best in the upright position relative to a source. View attachment 10761 Assume that sound is coming toward this mic's front (on the Z-axis): Will rotating the mic to any degree as per the diagram alter what the diaphragm "hears", either due to 1.) microphone resonance or 2.) X-/Y-Axis favoritism? Another example: imagine the above microphone on the sweet spot of a guitar amp. Will rotating it 90 degress on the X-axis still produce the same sound IF the diaphragm is in the same location (albeit rotated)? I know this is remedial stuff, but my spatial-temporal faculties are lacking and it'd be a time saver to get a clear answer on this.
