Microphones for studio recording

Studio microphones are one of the most important pieces of any home recording studio. When you use the right microphones for the right job, the improvement in sound quality is immediately noticeable. By making sure that the studio microphones you have are suited for your recording project, you'll spare yourself a big headache down the line and produce a much better recording as well.

Types of Studio Microphones

By using the right studio microphone for the occasion, you'll help ensure that your home recording sounds the way you intended it to. For some home recording projects you may only need one studio microphone to get the job done. Other recordings however, may require multiple studio microphones of varying types. Since different recording projects may require different studio microphones, it's always a good idea to do some research to ensure that the studio microphones you choose match your needs.

Dynamic microphone — By far the most popular type of microphone today is the dynamic microphone. Because of their ability to withstand loud volumes, dynamic studio microphones are great for recording amplified instruments, acoustic drums, and generally loud sound sources. Additionally, dynamic microphones don't need a power source to operate so they will work on nearly every board. The one downside of dynamic microphones is that they tend to be less accurate due to their limited frequency response.

The industry standard Shure SM57 is by far the most widely used dynamic microphone today when it comes to recording everything from amplified instruments to drums. Used in professional recording studios and live concerts alike, the SM57 makes an all around fantastic studio microphone for nearly every home recording project. The clean and robust sound you get at an affordable price from the SM57 has made it a main stay in nearly every studio, and is recommended for yours as well.

Popular Q&A

What is the best studio microphone?

I want to record myself playing music directly into my computer. Obviously a microphone is needed for this, but I don't know enough about microphones to trust myself in making a decision. Can anyone tell me the strengths and weaknesses of different high-quality microphones?

P.S. I have $100 to spend, so preferably something in that range.

For $100 audio technica makes great mic for that price range, if you already have an audio interface

here is a link below

i you dont have an audio interface, look into usb microphones on, they are usually reasonable on prices too

anymore questions feel free to contact me at
