Microphone Basics

Condenser Microphone The main function of the condenser microphone is to transfer the electrical signals from the amplifier to the speaker. A condenser microphone works on an electrostatic mechanism, with a series of copper plates connected to a diaphragm in such a way that they become polarized when an electrical voltage is applied between them. The electrostatic action generates a magnetic field, which in turn creates a current. The flow of the current is carried by a wire to the amplifier.

Condenser Microphones: The three basic types of condenser microphone are called omnidirectional, cardioid and dynamic, in that the three forms work by converting the electrical signal to an electronic circuit. Omnidirectional condensers can work on both directions in the audio spectrum. A cardioid microphone works best in the direction of the audio frequency. Dynamic condenser microphones, on the other hand, are designed in such a way that they have a low Q factor, which means that it has a small but constant magnetic field, so that it does not pick up the electronic signal.

Microphones are very popular in recording studios and in musicians’ studios because of their ability to produce great quality sound in a simple manner. It is important to know what type of microphone is required for recording a particular sound source. A common problem that beginners encounter when they try to learn how to use a microphone is that they fail to determine what type of microphone they require for recording the sound that they want to hear. It is important to learn the differences between the different types of microphones before you start recording music. A good way to learn these is to find an appropriate guide or tutorial about using the right kind of microphone.
