Build a solid foundation needed for success in a real-life recording studio.
"This week I learned a lot about microphones and microphone types!! There are Carbon, Crystal-cb radios, Dynamic/ Moving coil, Dynamic ribbon, Condenser, and Electret-Condenser. I also learned about the different microphone patterns, as well as how they differ from each other, which really helps me with microphone placement. According to my mentor, the U-87 condenser mic is highly used for vocals in the Hip-Hop World. It can also be used for guitar cab and drum overheads. The U-87 does use phantom power as do all condenser mics…48v! When I first joined the Recording Connection I had a lot of anxiety and was pretty overwhelmed. However, as the program continues and I work hands-on with my mentor I am finally making a breakthrough!"

Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
