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