We recently created a short, 5-minute video that’s essentially an introduction to microphone basics for music production newbies. It will help you to learn a bit more about microphones, which will assist you to choose the right microphone for the type of recording you plan to do.
The video covers:
- the microphone as a transducer;
- the difference between dynamic and condenser microphones; and
- how to understand crucial microphone specifications such as frequency response and polar patterns.
This is the first of a series of videos on music production that we will be creating for this site – we welcome your feedback and would love to hear if you have any ideas for future videos.
