Studio Monitors are basically loudspeakers in speaker enclosures specially designed for professional audio production. They are mostly used while recording, filmmaking, television studios, radio stations and project or even home studios. They cater to accurate audio reproduction.

Studio Monitors are generally used in Broadcasting and recording organizations. They employ audio engineers who take help of loudspeakers to assess the aesthetic merits of the program. Along with this, they tailor the balance of the music by audio mixing and mastering to achieve the aspired end result. Loudspeakers are also essential at various points in the chain to help engineers in ensuring that the program is reasonably free from technical defects like audible distortion or any background noise.

Studio Monitor, though a powerful one, is a speaker small enough to sit on a stand or desk in close proximity to the listener. This enables the listener to listen to the sounds directly from the speaker. This way the sound does not reflect off the walls and the ceilings. Studio Monitors are made to be more strong physically in a manner than the home hi-fi loudspeakers whereas home hi-fi loudspeakers often only have to reproduce compressed commercial recordings, Studio Monitors have to deal with the high volumes and sudden sound bursts that may take place in the studio while playing back unmastered mixes.

They are the best gift for your studios. They might be expensive, but you would never regret investing in them!

Recording Microphone

Microphones sound like an ordinary music instrument, don’t they? But to a singer, a Recording Microphones are his life partner. A partner he is attached and committed to by heart.

Recording Microphones are often called a mic. Recording microphones are used in various fields like recording some song, beat boxing, etc. They are also used in telephones, hearing aids, public address systems, in concert halls and public events.

They hold key importance in multiple places and event. They are essential to announcing information in a public event, they are essential in other live shows and events and are used to give a power packed performance by symbols of the music industry! Recording Microphones are everywhere. Probably they are omnipresent!

There are many different types of Recording Microphones in the industry today like :

  • Electret condenser
  • Dynamic
  • Ribbon
  • Carbon
  • Piezoelectric
  • Fiber optic
  • Laser
  • Liquid
  • MEMS

 

At one point or another, we have all wondered how sound of someone beating the drums is, someone hitting a high note or someone playing a guitar is recorded. Well, remember how sound that we hear is just energy, which is carried in the air by vibrations. Inside Recording Microphones, is a diaphragm (much smaller than a one you would find in a loudspeaker, usually made of very thin plastic). This Diaphragm moves back and forth when the sound waves hit it. These movements are recorded with the help of the same. So, if one had to say a microphone is basically a device that converts the mechanical energy waves or sound into electrical energy waves.

Different Recording Microphones have different microphone patterns. These patterns can vary in terms of directions. They can be unidirectional (which are primarily sensitive to the sounds from only one direction) or they can be omnidirectional (a simple mic design that will pick up all the sound present, regardless of their point of origin). In most cases, they are also bi-directional (these microphones receive the sound equally from both the front and the back of the element). Most of the ribbon microphones are of a bi-directional pattern. They do not respond to sound pressure at all, only to the change in the pressure between the front and the back.

The music industry now is constantly experimenting with the raw materials to improve the microphone in terms of sound quality, sensitivity, and frequency response. As technology changes, Recording Microphones are becoming more and more common. They are now also available along with new computer system, giving the user the opportunity to talk to friends and family over the Internet. Depending on the use, microphones are redesigned to incorporate the different needs of the customers.

Acoustic Guitar

An Acoustic Guitar it might just sound like an instrument’s name to many but to a musician, it is a part of their body.

An Acoustic Guitar is a guitar that produces sound acoustically by transmitting the vibrations of the strings to the air as opposed to relying on electronic amplification. The sound waves from the strings of an Acoustic Guitar produced through the guitar’s body, creating sound.

We see our favorite singers many times spending their time on creating acoustic versions of their songs which we absolutely love. Many guitarists start using Acoustic Guitars because they are little less harsh on the fingers and are often considered as simple pick up and play option for musicians.

Acoustic Guitars have different aspects like the fretboard, the shape, the sound and the strings as compared to a normal or classical guitar. Both seem so similar but who knew they had these differences right? Well, these differences are the small things that change the whole music. The difference between the strings and the shape plays a huge role in deciding how those two guitars will sound.

The main source of sound in an Acoustic Guitar is the string, the string is plucked or strummed by the finger or with a guitar pick. The string vibrates at necessary frequencies and also creates many harmonics at various different frequencies.

The soundboard of an Acoustic Guitar has a powerful effect on the loudness of the guitar.  The soundboard increases the surface for the vibrating area in a process called mechanical impedance matching. The soundboard can freely move the air around it much easily than the string alone since it is large and flat. This expands the entire system’s energy transfer efficiency, and a much powerful sound is then emitted. There are different types of acoustic guitars as well like Nylon/gut stringed guitars and Steel stringed guitars.

One, two, three or even countless more all of us have some favorite acoustic versions of songs that we can listen to any time at any place and we know for sure that they will put us into a good mood, some of the great acoustic versions are blackbird by Paul McCartney, heart of gold by Neil young, mercy by Shawn Mendes, Layla by Eric Clapton or daughters by John Mayer.

Acoustic Guitars creates the unplugged versions that we all absolutely admire, these versions of the songs created just have a different vibe to them, a positive vibe like sunshine in winters, it’s warm and beautiful.
