About the direction of the microphone. Microphone directivity

By the angle of sound pickup or directivity, we mean the zone of the possible location of the source of the sound signal, inside of which there is no significant loss in microphone efficiency.

The direction of the microphone is the sensitivity of the microphone to sound, depending on the direction or angle from which the sound comes.

Microphones use several directivity characteristics. Usually they are depicted in the form of polar diagrams, in order to graphically display the sensitivity variations in the 360 ​​degree zone around the microphone, taking the microphone as the center of the circle, and putting the reference point of the angle in front of the microphone.

The radiation pattern shows the dependence of the sensitivity of the microphone to the sound signal on the location of its source.

By direction, there are three main types of microphones: Continue reading

The secrets of low-budget music creation technology

Many musicians and sound engineers underestimate the capabilities of modern computers.
Many musicians and sound engineers underestimate the capabilities of modern computers, music applications, and inexpensive sound cards. At the mention of such a technique, they scornfully purs their lips and pronounce a word in which all their contempt for the world of mere mortals is concentrated: “multimedia” … However, acquaintance with Western periodical music publications suggests that the entire civilized world has long turned to face low-budget technologies: articles are written on this topic, the advantages and disadvantages of various programs are discussed, and serious people like Eric Persing (owner of Spectrasonics and creator of the entire library of sounds for Rola synthesizers nd) put the first experiments on the use of software synthesizers in serious budget projects. And the prices of programs and plug-ins make you think. For example, a set of Waves Native Gold Bundle plug-ins costs as much as $ Continue reading
