    What is the "microline" polar pattern? Is it any good? Is it a audio-technica thing, or an industry thing?

    How does this compare to Cardiod and hyper-cardiod?

    Thanks,

    MicroLine is just a diameter thing. 8mm vs 12mm in the UniLine series. I can see where their website would be confusing/misleading in that regard.

    These are the interchangeable MicroLine capsules available:

    OPTIONAL INTERCHANGEABLE ELEMENTS ESE-O omnidirectional (360°)
    ESE-C cardioid (120°)
    ESE-H hypercardioid (100°)


    The UniLine is available up to 24" long, and it's the only one I know of. These are the capsules for UniLine series.

    OPTIONAL INTERCHANGEABLE ELEMENTS UE-C cardioid (120°);
    UE-H hypercardioid (100°);
    UE-O omnidirectional (360°)
