    ribbon microphones
    Bruce Bartlett 06/05/12 05:07 PM,

But not anymore – many more recent models have been beefed up for added ruggedness, which is great because it allows us add their special sonic qualities to our live mixes. Lets explore the unique devices that are ribbon mics, including their design, technology, application, and techniques of use. PHYSICAL DESIGN The majority of dynamic mics are based on moving coil… View this story
