Miking Made Easy

Video tutorials for all evolution microphones now online

Sennheiser’s evolution microphones are among the most popular stage microphones altogether – and now, the audio specialist is presenting a series of short tutorial videos on how to get the best out of them. With the help of these videos, even newcomers can perfectly mike and record their music and polish their performance. In addition to the most important product features, the short tutorials also provide many useful tips on positioning the microphones at an instrument and help vocalists to choose the ideal mike.

For the videos, the filmmaker Geert Verdickt – himself a musician and vocalist in a band – has chosen a classical rehearsal room and a typical stage in order to have a closer look at the musicians’ instruments and voices. He gives an illustrative description of the microphones and shows how they can best reproduce the sound of each instrument. Verdickt’s insider tips range from mounting the mike to avoiding spill from other sound sources on stage.
