I am looking to set up a MS field recording rig based around Schoeps. I am wondering what your experiences are regarding using a Supercardioid (MK41) vs. a Cardioid (MK4) as the Mid channel? Is one preferrable to the other? Obviously there will be some rear pickup with the MK41 but I'm thinking that the flexibility in post-prod when converting the MS recording would be just as good, if not better with a super cardioid as opposed to cardioid. Also, I will have the ability to use the Mid as a mono fx mic as a short-shotgun.
Anybody have experience with this and can offer some insight?
