Need some advice about the Rode Videomic Pro
So I got a videomic pro for Christmas and may have already broken it. Underneath the foam windshield, on the plastic body of the mic itself, there were these two strips of cloth/paper covering long teardrop-shaped gaps (attached with adhesive). I peeled those off because I thought they were packaging but I'm now kind of concerned they were there intentionally and that their absence is going to affect the pickup pattern of the mic. I can't find info about it anywhere and Rode customer support is closed until after new years. Does anyone know whether those cloth strips are supposed to be there? Any help would be much appreciated.
