Martin MitchellI am a Freelance Sound Engineer,  Lecturer in Music Technology, and full member of AES. I work mostly in the fields of Touring Theatre,  Live Recording and Mastering. I am a microphone junkie and have a large collection which includes a number of interesting vintage  models.

The purpose of this blog is to share pictures and information about Microphones and Microphone Techniques past and present.

I am also gradually putting in links to SoundCloud & YouTube to help illustrate these posts. No good talking about microphones if you can’t hear them!! Although the streaming quality is reasonably good, for more detailed listening most of the tracks can be downloaded off Soundcloud in their original full resolution wav format.
