Studio Microphone Overview, Info and Prices - WIKIA studio microphone is a professional microphone used for pro recording and recording studios. It is much more sensitive and has a natural sound compared to normal PC microphones.
Microphone typesThere are different types of studio microphones
But these don't have to be any different. For example the C01U from Samson
This is not just a condenser microphone, but also has USB, and it is professional sounding, so you could easily call it a studio microphone, or at least a home recording studio microphone.
Dynamic, Ribbon and CondenserThe basis technology that picks up the sound in the microphone can be split up in 3 major groups
The dynamic microphone is mostly use as a live microphone, like a vocal mic. Or a microphone for presentation and live sound reinforcement. But it can also be used in a studio to capture guitar cabinets.
The condenser microphone is a much more sensitive microphone. It is sometimes used in live situations, and much more these days. But it is more expensive and it isn't as road worthy as a dynamic microphone.
Condenser microphones, and especially large condenser microphones are the best in capturing the full sound spectrum from low to high. They are used for almost anything. From vocals and recording singers, to drum overhead, acoustic guitar, percussion, piano etc.
The ribbon microphone is making a come back. The first ribbon microphones had a unique sound. They were considered great for recording vocals, and many other things. Until at some point the condenser microphone technology was simply better and cheaper. However this problem is now solved and manufacturers like Samson and sE Electronic have developed new ribbon mics with full range sound.
In a studio the ribbon microphone is much more natural sounding. Mainly because it is less directional. So for situations were a more natural sound is required the ribbon microphones is gaining in popularity again.
