Before you can place the first microphone in the studio, you need to develop a clear understanding of the sound that you want to emanate from the loudspeakers when the project is finished. To do this, you need to determine what are the elements that are essential for creating the “sonic illusion,” and then decide how to balance the often conflicting elements and competing demands of technology vs. art. Microphone techniques—although critical—are only a part of this process. Equally important are the criteria for monitoring and evaluating the results. Using recorded examples and practical demonstrations, the various aspects of this creative process are developed and brought into focus.
