Microphone placement research

  1. 1. Speech and Singing microphone placement ‘Keeping the microphone "off-axis" or at an angle to the speaker is crucial for many microphones to avoid plosives: the popping Ps and hard consonant Cs and Ks. Place the microphone roughly at 45 degrees, between the ear and the nose. The microphone can be below, at, or above the mouth as long as the speaker does not turn directly toward the microphone as a reflexive motion (which is why it's usually best to place it down and out of the line of sight with the reporter). Pay attention to the speaker's movements, be agile and compensate on-the-fly, moving the microphone as needed.’ http://ijnet.org/stories/microphone-placement Piano Microphone Placement For one microphone - Recording in stereo with two microphones is the easiest technique. However, if you only have one microphone, placing it above the strings of the piano about 2-3 feet above middle C will give you the most balanced sound. http://homerecording.about.com/od/recordingtutorials/f/piano_reco rding.htm Percussion Microphone placement Type of microphone to use;
