Modal Improved Condenser Microphone
Techniques are shown which make it possible to alter the frequency response and therefore the sound of a condenser microphone by using the nature of diaphragm modal shapes. The modal behaviour can further be influenced by stretching the diaphragm at certain points, which leads to increased sensitivity. By applying these low cost methods, it is possible to modify specific frequency responses and to improve the signal-to-noise ratio in an easy way.
