    microphones
    Craig Leerman 07/15/14 12:01 PM,
    When done well, a live recording captures the energy and personality of the performance, along with the ambiance and (if desired) audience response. There are many different ways to record a live show, but regardless of the approach, a good recording starts with the right microphones, correctly placed. By “right” I’m referring to mics that fit the particular application, taking factors such as pickup pattern and SPL handling into account. Mics tend to be categorized as “live” and “studio.” Yet… View this post

    microphones
    PSW Staff 07/14/14 10:09 AM,
    Perhaps more than any other pro audio component, microphones are a personal choice, subject to the specific preferences and goals of both users and sound techs/engineers. Manufacturers continue to create new mics in a wide range of formats, sizes, and price points, stemming from a healthy mix of innovative development, refinement of previous technologies, specialization of mics to specific applications, and changes in manufacturing. For decades, dynamic mics were pretty much the exclusive choice for live applications due to their… View this post

    Electromagnetic interference, often referred to as EMI, is a degradation of the performance of a piece of equipment or system caused by electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is the travel of alternating electric and magnetic fields through space at 186,273 miles (about a billion feet) per second, or the speed of light. A wavelength, as shown in Figure 1 below, is the physical distance traveled by a wave during one cycle. When the equipment or system is closer than about a… View this post

I’ll be upfront and say that I’ve made two of these mistakes. Two, maybe three. No, two. Forgive and forget, right? [sigh] 1. Allow signal seepage (that sounds… disgusting!) It goes like this; 1) Channel gain (trim) knob is at zero. 2) Fader is at unity or below. 3)… View this post
