AES New York 2015
Live Sound Expo Session

Sunday, November 1, 1:00 pm — 1:45 pm (Stage LSE)

Choosing the Right Vocal Mic

Mark Frink, Program Coordinator/Stage Manager - Jacksonville, Florida, USA; Independent Engineer and Tech Writer - IATSE 115
Peter Keppler
Kevin Madigan, Independent - Venice, CA, USA

While there are tried and true mics clinched by singers across the world, selecting the best mic for a vocalist involves more than snatching the most familiar mic off the shelf. This session talks microphone fundamentals (including polar-patterns and capsule construction), matching performance with a given voice and singing style, as well as tips for working with vocalists.

AES Members can watch a video of this session for free.
