We started learning about dynamic mics and condenser mics.
“We started learning about dynamic mics and condenser mics. The first basically requires no power source and records via a coil and is used mainly for less intricate/detailed sounds. The condenser mic feeds off phantom power and picks up higher and lower frequencies as well as volumes, thus allowing more intricate sounds (whispers, deep voices, etc) to be recorded. I also learned that an electrical signal is transmitted from the mic outwards to an amplification source but that signal is too weak so a preamp must be used: this basically enhances the signal before it gets to the amp to be heard loud and clear.”

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