    Many university theaters serve as teaching facilities for dramatic arts students as well as venues for professional productions, with the audio equipment neded to serve these dual purposes. This is why the La Jolla Playhouse at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) recently added a variety of DPA Microphones  d:dicate recording microphones, including 2011C twin diaphragm cardioid mics and 4061/4062 omindirectional miniature mics, which are used during both student and staff productions. Together with the Globe Theater in San… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Several times in doing the Home Recording Show podcast, we’ve had listeners write in asking about phase and wondering why we can’t just move the tracks around after recording. Usually we answer that it can be done for guitars and a few other sources, but never on drums, and it’s not the same as actually moving the mic. I’ve actually done this technique a few times on some tracks that were… View this story

    In a previous article (here), I presented approaches and advantages in double-miking a range of percussion instruments. Let’s continue the discussion here by expanding the focus. Acoustic guitars are another instrument that can benefit greatly by being miked from more than one position. Just as guitar pickups are usually positioned at different points along the string length of an electric guitar, placing one microphone near the bridge, and another where the neck meets the sound hole on an acoustic guitar,… View this story

    This article is provided by CCI Solutions.   Many worship teams now include an electric guitar to reproduce the growing number of contemporary worship songs found on the radio and used in churches across America and abroad. The idea of an electric guitar came from the need to overcome the challenge of playing in a large ensemble since the acoustic guitars of the day could not compete with the volume of the other instruments. The original guitar amplifiers were simple… View this story

    As if by magic, cardioid microphones can pick up what they are aimed at, but reject sounds to the side and rear. For example, talk into a cardioid mic from all sides while listening to its output. Your reproduced voice will be loudest when you talk into the front of the mic and softest when you talk into the rear. Because they discriminate against sounds to the sides and rear, cardioid designs help reject unwanted sounds such as room acoustics… View this story

    In order to select a microphone for a specific application, and to apply it properly, it’s first necessary to know the important characteristics of the sound source(s) and of the sound system. Once these are defined, a look at the five areas of microphone specifications will lead to an appropriate match. Finally, proper use of the microphone, by correct placement and operation, will insure best performance. Following are recommendations for some of the most common meeting facility sound applications.

    If you’ve never experimented with double-miking a musical instrument, you’re in for a treat. Properly utilized, the technique provides a whole new palette of tonal colors, along with surprising ease of control. It’s especially useful when working with an unfamiliar console, one that has limited EQ capability, or when multiple operators are working together on the same control surface. Further, with two or more microphones on key instruments, there is built-in redundancy. If one mic fails, falls off its stand,… View this story
