Microphone Electrical Specifications and Accessories
In addition to the acoustical properties of microphones, there are many electrical and mechanical aspects that the recording engineer must be aware of. Chief among these are microphone sensitivity, impedance, self (inherent) noise level, and distortion at high operating levels. We will discuss these, along with aspects of remote powering of capacitor microphones. Microphone accessories will be covered as well.
