● The pressure gradient and the phase
 
Fact: The pressure gradient is ahead of the sound pressure at 90°.
 
Phase of the S signal at the microphone with figure-eight pattern in
opposite to the M signal at the microphone with omni-directional pattern?

When looking at the curves of displacement, sound pressure, sound velocity and pressure gradient there comes a question:
 
If the pressure gradient is always 90° ahead to the sound pressure, why is MS stereophony with an omni-directional pressure microphone and a pressure gradient figure-of-eight microphone no problem?
 
Answer:
The frequency response of the pressure gradient increases with frequency at 6 dB/octave. To compensate for this, these microphones are "tuned damped". In the electrical analogy,this represents an RC pad above its transition frequency causes a drop of 6 dB/octave, and shifts the phase constant at −90°. In the whole area in which the "pressure gradient figure-of-eight microphone" has a constant frequency response, thus, the phase is equal to the "pressure omni-directional microphone".
