Hey, so I'm in need of a sensitive directional microphone. Something that I can point at say a drop of water or set farther back from something than say traditional condenser microphones and get a stronger signal from the source, if you know what I'm saying.
Right now I have a Zoom h4n and selling that would be my approximate price range. I would like to get into field recording but what sparked my urge to upgrade so to speak is that while I was recording SFX from squishing fruits and slapping meats my technique was to have about 4 microphones all close to the action. They were getting a little bit of slop on them, not much, but that made me think of the books I had read and photos I had seen where people were recording foley with shotgun mic's. Obviously there is no one right way to do it, but now I see the advantage of recording foley in mono....Is there a directional microphone out there that will suit me considering the price range and will it cure my woes of microphone sensitivity and distance?
