Supercardioid polar pattern is narrower than a typical cardioid and allows a higher level of cancellation. Such microphones are thus used for a more focused recording and particularly for the reinforcement of a live sound. The use of supercardioids also allows achieving a better isolation while minimizing the bleed between two nearby sound sources, such as a singer and his own guitar or even two different drums in a set. Nevertheless, a reduced angle inevitably results in added sensitivity to the sounds coming from the rear. In case with supercardioids this isn’t particularly prominent, yet should still be taken into account.
