Microphones have an air of mystique about them: So many shapes and sizes, their correct handling and use, the way they work, the different pick-up patterns and the selection of one suitable for the intended application.
It can all be very confusing.
This half-day course has been very well received from past attendees – it is aimed at being a “university of hand-held microphone use and application”. It will offer an insight into the most suitable models, both mono and stereo, to use “in the field”, and the ones that are less suitable.
Just some of the areas covered are:
- Microphone pick-up patterns
- The difference between dynamic and condenser models
- Suggestions for microphones for different recording scenarios
- Handling techniques to avoid unwanted noise and how to position them to get the best quality.
- Setup of situations that require multiple microphones, and their connection to a recorder or mixer.
It’s a fully packed afternoon that will be supported with handouts to take away. Freelance or employed in the radio, audio production or podcast sectors, this workshop will improve your microphone use skills and the all-important quality of the recordings they capture.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their recording kit along to this workshop so directly applicable advise on its use can be offered.
