    Great article, especially for singers. I think it’s really important that singers learn more about how microphones actually work. That way they can deal with on-stage mishappenings, like what to do when feedback occurs. Plus it feeds creativity in the studio, allowing them to create new sounds by pushing the boundaries of “conventional recording”.
