I mentioned in my last post that I was spending a lot of time rebuilding my recording site Home Brew Audio. The old site at www.homebrewaudio.com is still there, but the new posts are going to the new site, which is only different in that it ends in .co instead of .com. What a difference one letter makes:).
Anyway, the latest post talks about something that is important to know about in the music recording or performing world – if you’re using microphones that is. That something is called phantom power. It can be awfully complicated if you try to dig into what it is and all the technical stuff. But in reality there are only a few very simple things anyone needs to understand. And that is what the post is about.
If you are interested in ever recording or playing live with microphones (specifically condenser microphones which, truthfully, aren’t very common in the live-gigging world), check out the article here: What is Phantom Power Really?
