Example text

If you were an artist, microphones would be analogous to your color palette. Every microphone choice is like a stroke of the brush adding texture, tone, and color. Which microphones you choose can influence whether a recording is bright or dark, edgy or mellow, or muddy or clear. Three steps are involved in recording: capturing the sound, storing the sound, and listening back to the sound. The microphone represents the first step, capturing the sound. Getting to know how a microphone captures a particular instrument or sound takes time and experience.

A clean, electric guitar tone that is extremely bright could be described as glassy. Hard – A hard sound has a lot of midrange and accentuates the attack part of a sound’s envelope. Harder frequencies are found between approximately 1 and 4 kHz. Hollow – A hollow sound lacks a portion of its frequency range. This can be caused by phase cancellations due to room acoustics or other variances. Hot – A sound described as hot may mean that it is turned up too loud, or the high frequency range is more noticeable.

In this particular scenario, we have identified five transducers in the signal path of an electric guitar recording: the guitar pickup, the amp’s speaker, the mic placed in front of the amp, headphones/studio monitors, and our ears. If any one of these transducers is flawed or inadequate, the end result of capturing a quality guitar sound could be jeopardized. Basic Vocabulary Transient – A short, quick burst of energy that is non-repeating. Commonly associated with the attack of percussive instruments.
