Polar Response

The Loopa features a cardioid spatial response. This means it is directional: when pointed at a sound source, it will "focus" onto that sound and reject sounds to the sides and back of the microphone.

This has many advantages. As well as rejecting unwanted sounds, it helps prevent feedback (high-pitched squeals) from your speaker.

Another advantage is a subtle boosting of the low-frequencies when the sound source is close to the microphone (known as the proximity effect). This lets you create warm, intimate vocals when singing, or intense bass drums when beatboxing.

Frequency Response

The Loopa has a wide frequency response, capturing sonic detail from below 100Hz up to beyond 20kHz. A subtle boost above 4kHz gives sparkle and clarity to vocals. A slow fall-off below 100Hz ensures a robust low-frequency response which is further enhanced by the proximity effect.
