Yeah I was thinking about the vocals in post which seem are done in post for most live events. I think there are some loud drummers I work with and we are amazed at how much the vocal mics are "cymbal mics."

That also made me think of the vocal mics. I'm using the AT 5000 series mics and I wonder if they have a wider pattern...
