Join Bill Gibson for an in-depth discussion in this video Live sound mic considerations, part of Microphone Techniques: Essentials.
- [Instructor] Considerations for using microphones … in a live sound setting are very different … than considerations for using mics in the studio. … First and foremost, sensitive studio microphones, … which often respond very evenly … across the audible frequency spectrum, … are very prone to feeding back through the sound system. … With such a full-range pick up, … any frequency that wants to feed back in the system … will quickly find a way to feed back … through a mic designed for studio use, … where feedback isn't an issue. … Mics that are designed for live sound … are almost always used in close proximity to the source … in order to minimize leakage of everything else … on the stage into every mic. … As we look more closely at mic types, … it'll become very clear why certain mics … are better on stage than others. … The mic that's great for use on stage … will have excellent built-in damping … to minimize the transfer of stage rumble, … footsteps, the kick drum, and bouncing musicians …
