BeyondPodcasting 2: Microphones—technologies, patterns and connection types

By listening to BeyondPodcasting episode 2, you’ll learn microphone fundamentals: technologies, patterns and connection types

In BeyondPodcasting episode 2, Allan Tépper presents a bird’s eye view of microphone categories: technologies, patterns and connection types. Among the technologies covered are ribbon, electret condenser and dynamic. Among the patterns are omnidirectional and several types of directional mics: cardioid, supercardioid, hypercardioid and shotgun. The connection types covered are analog (balanced and unbalanced) and digital (Lightning and USB). This is fundamental information to understand and choose microphones, mixers and interfaces (preamps and A-to-D converters).

Allan is again joined by his guest, the Emmy award winning actor and voiceover talent Memo Sauceda. BeyondPodcasting is located at
