    Recording Gear for the Working Musician

    Recording Mics

    by Nick Hodgins

    A quality recording mic is an essential piece of gear for every musician looking to capture their work at its greatest potential. Whether you’re creating a podcast off your laptop, recording in a studio, working on a film, or recording a video; there is a microphone out there for you.

    Dynamic microphones are less sensitive to sound pressure and are also more durable, these are typically used for drums and electric guitars. Condenser microphones are more sensitive to nuances and are offered in both solid state and tube.

    Recording Mixers

    A recording mixer combines your signals, either through isolated or dedicated outputs, and redirects them where they need to go. The quality of the preamp in your mixer is an integral part to your overall sound.

    USB and Firewire audio mixers offer a gateway to the digital realm of recording and allow for direct access to your DAW or other recording software. Digital mixers offer advanced LCD displays and motorized faders, as well as a large amount of memory.

    Studio Monitors

    Many musicians and producers consider studio monitors to be the most important tool when it comes to achieving great sound. Your sound is crucial and monitors will act as your primary creative output while your work is mixed, mastered, duplicated, and eventually distributed.

    Accessories such as MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever surface they are on, improving the accuracy of your entire monitor system.

    Quality monitors will allow you to hear the best representation of your product possible and help you determine how your finished product will translate to other outputs such as headphones or stereos.
