If you have listened to this podcast for any length of time, you probably know that I am a big fan of ribbon microphones.
In this episode, I talk about my introduction to ribbon mics while I was in high school, and how over the years I tried to make them work for me. Eventually, ribbon mics became my favorite, and now I often do sessions that use only ribbon mics.
I explain the characteristics of ribbon mics, good and bad, and suggest ways to get the most from this type of microphone. I compare the sound and pickup pattern characteristics with condenser mics, and suggest techniques for several common recording situations.
I mention a video showing how we mic a grand piano with a stereo ribbon mic. Here is the link to that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mzVne64ItQ
