How to Control A Surround Microphone?

- Jul 23, 2018-

The surround sound microphone can record a wide, deep sound, especially suitable for recording drum sounds. But sometimes, the effect of the radio is not ideal. A noise gate can be used to solve this problem.

When recording, especially when recording drum sounds, place the surround microphone in a good position to increase the depth and breadth of the recording. But sometimes, the sound of a surround microphone is not ideal. It always collects too much of the sound of an instrument and masks the sound you want to collect. The use of noise gates can effectively prevent this from happening. It enhances the sound of a particular instrument by setting the tone of the surround microphone. For example, a close-range microphone sometimes does not capture the drum sound of a snare drum, while a surround sound microphone captures the drums, drums, and cymbals while capturing snare drum sounds. At this time, you can use the noise gate to enhance the tone of the snare drum and increase the input of the snare drum.

A noise gate is inserted into the soundtrack of the surround sound microphone, and the sound door is activated by the sound signal of the snare drum, and the snare drum sound in the surround sound microphone recording can be separated. The noise gate opens only when the snare drum is struck, reducing the input of most of the surround sound except the snare drum. Of course, doing so will lose some of the surround sound produced by other settings, but the sound quality of the recorded snare drum will be very high, it is still worth it.
