Microphones (Wordhole)

From XPUB & Lens-Based wiki

A microphone is a device that amplifies sound. There are three (or four) types of microphones:

(a) The dynamic microphone

(b) The small and large diaphragm microphone

(c) The ribbon microphone

and they have six different polar patterns: (cardioid, supercardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, lobar and bidirectional), depending on where they capture the sound from, and they are accordingly used for different environments and specific purposes, eg. public speaking, recording in a noisy environment, recording for film, online streaming.

In context

We have experimented with different types of microphones (and from different eras) their effect and the quality of their output when used for recording.
