  • Golden rules for microphone placement! 

Topics to be covered:

1 The System
  • Speaking person 
  • Room (reverberation, background noise)
  • Microphone(s) 
  • Signal processing (mix, eqs, dynamics, level setting) 
  • Loudspeaker(s) 
  • Room (acoustics, background noise) (the room hits you twice)
  • Listening person (hearing ability, language)

2 The Voice
  • The source
  • How much and where (directionality)
  • Wowels and consonants (speech and language)
  • Plosives (and microphones)

3 The Room
  • Size

  • Noise
  • Shape 

4 The Listener
  • >50% of us have less than perfect hearing…
  • Perceived loudness; about tonal balance 
  • Listener fatigue

5 Speech Intelligibility
  • Frequency range of interest
  • The importance of signal/noise 
  • Limiting factors

6 The Microphones
  • A transducer
  • Specs: sensitivity, directivity, selfnoise 
  • Mechanical issues (dimensions, mounting, etc.)

7 The Choice and Application of Microphones
  • What to choose?
  • Relevant types
  • Getting the speech and nothing but the speech
