Which Microphone Is Right For The Job??
The age old question of which Microphone for which setting is always asked. Here I answer some of the questions and even show you the correct uses for microphones you have seen before or never seen before.Even though some say that there is a microphone for every situation which is a very big deal since some believe that one microphone is not capable of doing everything on its own.

It begins with a direct answer. That your choice will affect your final product of material. it then lists of many different types of microphones that are used for their different settings such as bands, recitals, talent shows, etc... I found this article helpful because it really answered my question of where to hold a microphone for optimum recording.

Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Handheld Microphone Reviewed

Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Handheld Microphone Reviewed | Which Microphone Is Right For The Job?? | Scoop.it

The ATR2100-USB has been chosen as Videomaker's Best Handheld Microphone of 2011. Here is text from AT's Facebook post about the award:

 

"Turn the ATR2100-USB over, and in addition to the usual single XLR connector, you will also find a Mini-B USB port, an 1/8-inch headphone jack and a volume control dial. While it functions as any other XLR mic, the USB port allows it to connect easily, in true plug-and-play fashion, to any computer - Windows or Mac. Plug some headphones directly into the mic for instant audio monitoring, adjust the volume and wail away. And the quality? Excellent! For versatility and quality, the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid USB/XLR Mic is our choice for Videomaker's Best Handheld Microphone."

Justyn Magarotto's insight:

This article first delves into the fact that this is a great microphone and that is is great for any connection becuase it has a multi pulg which makes it very much useful for many recordings. The article continues to talk about it's set-up and best uses but does not call it a universal microphone that is great for every situation. It is a very well endowed equiptment and it is obvious but it does not fill the full spectrum or recording requirements.I found this article greatly useful because it hit the questions head on without a dodge or fake answer. I think the uses of different microphones are useful.

Picking the Right Microphone for the Job

Picking the Right Microphone for the Job | Which Microphone Is Right For The Job?? | Scoop.it

As an audio engineer, you may be in charge of mixing and recording various types of sound. From studio recordings to film and live performances, there is no “one size fits all” microphone – even different instruments and vocal types have different needs when it comes to frequency ranges and pickup patterns.

Justyn Magarotto's insight:

This article goes deep into the discussion of which mic is best for specific recording sessions and what oyu want to record. It lists different mic's and their uses for which setting and their best optimal usage. It also tells you how you can take better care of your equiptment with the proper cleaning and storage options. In addition to it's reliability, I found this great because I always wondered what different microphones were used for what. Now I know. Plus I think that there are sometimes better uses for some microphones.

A Front of House engineer would be in charge of which microphones the talent would be using for a show. This is a very important aspect of preproduction in any live event. Digital consoles give engineers a whole new way to visualize sound. There is so much more room for creativity and new ways of enjoying music are being created because of it.

Justyn Magarotto's insight:

This piece of work has answered a very great question. If wether this microphone is best over another microphone. The article tells what specific microphones are suited for any given task like relaying commands between a team to hearing the performer on stage. It does not give any example of a universal microphone. I believe that there are great microphones out there that are not going to finish the same job the same way so it is up to how you feel it should sound that ultimately effects what microphone you use.

Justyn Magarotto's insight:

This article delves into the microphone issue of which is best for any given situation. First it talks about the placement of the mic and where it will best suit for which session setting you are in. It does not give any information on a universal mic which could mean that they do not believe one is around today. Maybe one that can do multiple recording setting but not all. This is a great source for industries because it tells you what is great for what setting to record with.

Guidelines to how to handle mics to get proper effient sound

Leon Edwards's curator insight, September 13, 2015 1:21 PM

Where your microphone is placed has a lot to do with the sound it produces. Mic placement is something that can alter the sound of your music. Background noise should be eliminated through proper placement and sound proofing.

Austin Lowry's curator insight, January 12, 7:32 PM

This Scoop is very informative. It provides information on how to place microphones on a guitar amp and what kind of microphones to use when recording certain instruments.
