    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Nothing has more effect on the sound of your recordings than microphone technique. For example, which mic you choose—and where you place it—affect the recorded tone quality. That is, mic technique affects how much bass, midrange, and treble you hear in the monitored sound of a musical instrument. Mic choice and placement also affect how distant the instrument sounds in the recording, and how much background noise you pick up. This guide… View this post

    From his early work with the likes of Frank Zappa, Poco, and Etta James to more recent projects with The Madden Brothers, Morrissey, and Spoon, multiple Grammy-winner Joe Chiccarelli is known for delivering exceptional quality and fresh, creative music.

    Podcasts often originate in garages, but the best ones these days are definitely not satisfied with low-rent sound anymore. That’s why the BP40 Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone from Audio-Technica has become the choice for leading podcasters who want their programs to go out on the Internet with broadcast-quality audio.
