Definition

A device (transducer) that converts sound in to an electrical signal.

You will mainly use dynamic or condenser mics. Dynamic mics are robustly made and can handle very loud source signals, such as guitar amps and drums. Dynamic mics are typically used for live vocals.

Condenser mics have a greater frequency response, especially for high frequencies, and are great for acoustic instruments and recording vocals in a studio.
