In the front: National K song, Sing Bar, Singer League, Lychee, Himalaya and other K songs and audio apps are on fire today. More and more music lovers are involved in singing K songs, which directly affects the sound quality of the songs. The microphone is particularly important. According to the individual’s degree of “poisoning” in K song and the budget,
First, let everyone popularize the basic knowledge of choosing a microphone
First of all, microphones currently mainly include two types: condenser microphones and dynamic microphones.
Condenser microphone: This type of microphone is currently the standard microphone in all recording studios in the world. The advantage is that the frequency range is wide, the sound is more delicate, and the recorded sound is particularly rich; the disadvantage is that it has higher environmental requirements and is more demanding than dynamic microphones. more expensive. However, this type of microphone has become a mainstream product in the karaoke and live broadcast industry, and its market share is undoubtedly ranked first!
Dynamic microphone: cheap and durable, this is a big highlight. Those small microphones with 10 yuan free shipping are basically dynamic microphones. But its disadvantage is that the frequency range is narrow, the recorded sound is relatively dull, and many details are missing. It is generally used for recording instrument sounds with more bass.
Things to pay attention to when choosing a microphone
1. The direction of the microphone
Omnidirectional: This kind of microphone can receive 360°, but the noise will be more obvious. This kind of microphone is more suitable for multi-person chorus and instrumental accompaniment.
8-character direction: As the name suggests, the microphone can record at the front and back, and the left and right recordings will be weaker, which can effectively filter the side sound. For example, if you broadcast live on a noisy street, you don’t have to worry about recording too noisy. And the omnidirectional microphone recorded the sound in the busy city, as if you were in the busy city, all kinds of cries haha.
Heart-shaped pointing: This pointing is versatile and suitable for almost all recording applications. Obtaining a dry sound signal as a cardioid direction mixed with a bad sound effect, with noisy fan noise in the background.
2. The diaphragm of the microphone (large diaphragm and small diaphragm)
Large diaphragm: This is suitable for recording human voices, and the details of the intermediate frequency are recorded well. However, the transient response is not ideal, especially on cheap microphones. For example, if you sing a high note hard, it will pop, but the high-priced large-diaphragm microphone basically does not have these problems.
Small diaphragm, this kind of microphone is not so rich in sound recording, but it is often used to record bass instruments, mainly because the transient response is better, such as sudden volume increase, but no popping sound, and the sound is large and small, and it is not easy to lose signal.
3. Other parameters
Including transient range, dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, resistance, frequency response curve, response range, etc., and these parameters only have reference value for very professional microphones, especially in today's relatively open price, the price is basically Determines the level of the microphone, so there is no need to focus too much on parameter indicators.
