How do microphones work? What differentiates one operating type of transducer from another? How and why do they sound different? What are polar patterns, and how do they affect the way a microphone responds to sound? What is “proximity effect” and why do some mics exhibit more of it than others? What’s the truth about capsule size — does it really matter? These are just a few of the topics covered in this brief overview of Basic Microphone Technology.
