    Microphone Usage

    I've never had problems using a micophone, and getting good projection.
    But at this new job there telling me all kinds of stuff that is not what I would trust as proper microphone usage.
    I was taught to hold the microphone going out from your face pointing at the ground about 5 or 6 feet away from you, with the head just about resting on top of your chin.
    I don't know how that discription is, but if someon could tell me the best way to hold one, or where I could find out that would be spectacular.
    Thank you

    Hi Josiah,
    I would say you were taught properly but it was only the tip of the iceberg because there is much much more to audio. I would say consider your new experience another learning stage. There are other microphones that are in use that have other characteristics and dynamics which work much differently from what you have been trained and gotten use to.

    Dave Owen (the Technomancer of this realm ) has gone thru an extensive explanation in regards to types of microphones that are currently in use. Checkout http://www.mediacollege.com/audio/mi...ones-work.html. Even though technique is not mentioned, the explanations should give you a better understanding why your new training is so different.

    Hope this helps!

    There's also a brief look at using hand-mics on the following page:

    Any more tips we could add to this page would be welcome.
