Condenser microphones are among the most common microphones you will find in the studio. Although generally more expensive than Dynamic Microphones, condenser mics have a much greater frequency response and transient response. Frequency response refers to the way microphones responds to different frequencies. A transient response refers to the response to the microphone to a change from equilibrium. Condenser microphones generally require the use of a power supply supported by 48 volt “Phantom Power” found in most mixing boards or external power supplies.
Recording At Home
When recording at home you’ll generally want to have a large-diaphragm condenser mic. If you are not supplied with phantom power you would have to consider a large diaphragm dynamic microphone like the Shure SM7B.
A dynamic microphone compared to a condenser microphone are much more rugged. They are also especially resistant to moisture and other forms of abuse, which makes it the perfect choice onstage. Dynamic mics are good for performances but condenser mics will always capture the sound in the studio.
This is the new year furreall
Im excited as I get started in my second year of music technology class. Last year i had a great time learning all the equipment, now that i’m a little experienced it’s time to let loose and make some groovy tracks. I am ready to start putting my music abilities to the test and i’m excited to be able to share some of the recordings I make at my home studio over this website.
