(Music Sales America). No matter how sophisticated computers or synthesizers become, the recording of a real sound always starts with a microphone. The problem is that, unlike the human ear, there is no single microphone that is ideal for all jobs. Basic Microphones teaches you how the different types of microphones work, which types are best suited to which job, and how best to use them in a recording situation. Covers dynamic microphones, ribbon microphones, capacitor microphones, stereo mic techniques, recording vocals, acoustic and electrical guitars, drums, the piano, and string instruments.

From Our Editors

Music today relies heavily on technology, so what if you`re an artist, not a rocket scientist and don`t understand the basics? Paul White`s series, Music Technology — The Pocket Guides, contains the answers, complete with glossaries of all the terms needed to discuss the new technology with confidence. Basic Microphones condenses the experience of decades of use and explains how the equipment works, the different functions of each type and how to most effectively use them in any musical situation.
