Part of being a studio sound engineer is based on knowing the tools you can use to capture the audio signal (sound) you are targeting. It is somewhat vital to know which microphone is well suited for the mission you are trying to achieve, depending on the microphone choices you have available and the sound source you are recording. It is your responsibility as a sound engineer to consider aspects like frequency response, polar pattern, the microphone’s sensitivity and many other microphone aspects before the recording can begin.Most people tend to overlook this important aspect of recording which can lead to bad microphone choice resulting in a recording that would lack the relevant frequencies which define the sound source.
