There is one question I get more than any other from my fellow musicians when they find out I work for Shure:
What is your best microphone?
There is no simple answer to this question. I can tell you which was designed specifically for your application or which is the most expensive, but the truth is that everything in sound comes down to personal taste. Choosing the right mic for any application is a delicate balance between science and art. In our next webinar, we’ll help prepare you for your next mic selection by providing you with the science half of that equation.
How to Choose a Microphone 101
There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to test-drive and compare the staggering number of microphone options available. If you’re armed with a little knowledge about how microphones work, and what characteristics determine a microphone’s application, then you’ll be able to hone in on your best options much more easily. Join Gino Sigismondi and John Born for a one-hour primer on microphone applications for performance and recording, and learn how to navigate the plethora of microphone choices to find the right one for you.
