Pad Switch

The pad switch helps prevent distortion from extremely loud sources, such as when close-miking horns or drums.

Low Frequency Rolloff

The low frequency rolloff may be used for voice or medium- to high-range instruments. It reduces floor rumble and low-frequency room noise from heating and air conditioning systems. Also used to compensate for proximity effect or to reduce low frequencies that make an instrument sound dull or muddy.

Proximity Effect

Unidirectional microphones such as the PG42 progressively boost bass frequencies by 6 to 10 dB below 100 Hz when the microphone is at a distance of about 6 mm (1/4 in. ) from the sound source. This phenomenon, known as proximity effect, can be used to create a warmer, more powerful sound.
