There are many different types of microphones and the choices may be overwhelming to young musicians and sound engineers who are interested in home or field recording. If you’re a budding producer, you’ll never get to mogul status if you’re recording artists using the wrong microphone. Similarly, if you run an underground punk venue in your basement and you want to document all the great shows, this episode will prove very helpful.
Jon O’Neil is the founder of Naiant, a company that designs and manufactures innovative microphone and microphone accessories. In this episode, I ask Jon how he started his company, how its grown, and how people interested in sound recording can get the best results in a wide variety of sound spaces.
Naiant‘s most recent U series microphone is innovative because it supports interchangeable capsules, which are the sound sensors on the microphone. This not only saves you money, but it will let you get the best performance possible in a wide variety of soundscapes such as home studios, coffee shops, student lounges, auditoriums, basements, bars, etc.
