Hey. I actually have a few questions. When is an ideal situation to use all the switches on a mic?. I am seriusoly considering getting a RODE NT2. I was just wondering in what situation would i need to use the variable pattern or the high pass filters and what not. With proper positioning and editing are they even necessary or would a mic like the NT1000 be a good choice? If so, should i just save up and get the K2? Thanks.
