Hal Leonard Releases Mic Choices & Placement Online Video Tutorial from The Blackbird Academy Foundation Series

September 16th, 2016 Posted in News, newsletter

Hal Leonard has released a new installment of The Blackbird Foundation Series at Groove3: Mic Choices & Placement. Taught by The Blackbird Academy Co-Director and Instructor Kevin Becka, this new course was conceived to cover information needed to choose and place the right microphone to get a great sound at the source.

The course is broken up into 9 tutorials, each not longer than 5 minutes, for learning throughout the day or as time allows. Topics include:

  • Microphone features: phantom power, front and side address, on- and off-axis
  • Frequency Response & Directionality: polar patterns and how they affect the quality of a recording
  • Proximity Effect and why no two mics sound the same
  • Voicing, Roll-Off & Pad
  • Mono & Stereo Placement
  • Specialty mics

The publisher touts Becka as leading the tutorials at an easy-to-follow speed, accompanied by professional video and visuals from Blackbird Studios in the heart of music town Nashville, TN.
