Tutorial: T4 - Understanding Microphone Specifications

Eddy B. Brixen, EBB-consult - Smorum, Denmark

There are lots and lots of microphones available to the audio engineer. The final choice is often made on the basis of experience or perhaps just habits. (Sometimes the mic is chosen because of the looks … .) Nevertheless, there is good information to be found in the microphone specifications. This tutorial will present the most important microphone specs and provide the attendee with up-to-date information on how these specs are obtained and understood. It also takes a critical look on how specs are presented to the user, what to look for and what to expect.

This tutorial is a follow up on the project X85, which has been taking place in the AES standards committee (SC 04-04).
