August 16, 2010

Microphone by Matt Katzenberge (CCBYNCSA)

A good primer explaining different types of microphones and how they work can be found mediacollege.com. Audio-technica also has a good explanation of microphone characteristics, pick-up patterns, and common problems.

Transom.org is describes itself as “an experiment in channeling new work and voices to public radio through the Internet”.  It provided up-to-date information about recording equipment and publishes interviews, articles, and a variety of audio programmes. It includes shows on how to produce innovative radio programmes and podcasts.

Phonography, or the practice of making field recordings, has grown with the availability of recording equipment that is good quality, inexpensive, and portable. Phonography.org lists a number of practitioners and compilations of their work. It also includes articles and information about equipment.Michael Oster’s site and The Quiet American are examples of individual practitioners and their work.
