After getting the source to sound the best that it can, a voice, a kick drum, a guitar cabinet or a cello, the mic choice and placement are in my opinion the most critical in obtaining the best sound for live worship, streaming or recording. I am not talking about your favorite brand or model. I am talking about the type, dynamic, condenser or ribbon; the polar pattern or how the mic responds to the source and the surrounding area, mic sensitivity and rejection. In most cases, the right mic in the right place will improve your sound dramatically. Can I use a dynamic where I would typically use a condenser? Are ribbons a safe bet in live performance? Learn how to choose and apply the different types to assorted applications and you will most likely not have to spend as much time behind the console trying to fix the source or the mic with EQ or dynamics.
