What is a good frequency response for microphones?
A microphone’s frequency response refers to the range of frequencies, from low to high, that a microphone will pick up. This range is referred to by its lowest and highest frequencies, measured in hertz. A microphone with a frequency response range of around 80 Hz to 15 kHz would make a good choice for a vocal mic.
What is the C414 good for?
These new mics successfully uphold the classic C414 tradition for sound, while their extended dynamic range, greater sensitivity, and very low background noise make them suitable for the most demanding music recording tasks.
What microphone has the flattest frequency response?
Though it’s extremely difficult to generalize, there are some microphone types that often have flat frequency responses. They include: Small-diaphragm condenser microphones. Large-diaphragm condenser microphones.
Why is the AKG C414 good for vocals?
The C414 has become renowned for its high-end clarity and sound character. This is what makes the C414 XLII (which has more high-end than the XLS to suit vocals) particularly popular as a vocal microphone. The C414 has shimmering treble frequencies, a very polished and detailed sound which stresses clarity.
Is flat frequency good?
The flatter the response, the more pure the audio. A flat frequency response is important in devices such as loud speakers, monitors and microphones when audio accuracy is desired. Having said that, a flat response may not necessarily sound “good” to all people depending on the situation – it’s very subjective.
What does flat frequency response mean?
A piece of gear (or a system) is said to have flat response when it outputs all frequencies at equal levels, assuming that a flat signal was used as input. That is to say, no frequency is boosted or cut in level by the “natural” frequency response of the gear.
