    Do you think this microphone could pick up 2 people sitting next to each other well when placed on a table in front of them? I don't have too much experience with microphones but I know some will only pick up a very close range and what they're pointed at.

    --Thanks

    it's a hyper-cardioid, so no. ideal would be a figure-8 mic (w/ the subjects facing each other), or failing that, an omni. you can get away with a cardioid if the subjects are, well, basically hugging.

    read this if that didn't make any sense.

    edit: you always have the option of using two mics, though you may notice that maxing out at one mic is a limitation of going the USB-mic route.
