Linda Jarvis In a nutshell studio (condensor) microphones are tonally and dynamically more responsive than their dynamic counterparts (but are much more sensitive so need careful handling). Suitable for a vast array of applications, they’re as useful on a vocal as they are a cello, acoustic guitar, guitar cab, or choir. Just don’t put them inside a drum!

STAFF Gavin Wiltshire


Stereo microphone techniques are hugely important not only to curriculum but to getting professional recording results with many sound sources. Although wasted on bagpipes (as I discovered recently) acoustic guitars, choirs, drums pianos and beyond all sound wonderful when mic’d in stereo. Try experimenting with XY coincident, Spaced pair and even MS arrangements and see how it can open up the sound, giving depth, space and realism.
