Dynamics When Using Headset Microphone

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I use a microphone on a stand but being a bass player and sometimes using a fretless bass while singing I was thinking about getting a headset microphone. When using a mic on a stand I move in and out for achieving the desired dynamics. How do those of you that use a headset mic deal with the dynamics? Keep in mind that my hands are tied up with playing bass and wouldn't be able to use a hand to pull and push something in and out.

Hmm... that is a good question? Not sure you can use proximity techniques on a headset mic. You simply can't do that.... let's just hope you have good compression on your mix.

There are a few here who are performing gigs but they are using dynamic mics on a stand, even if they play an instrment, as well. But it is an interesting question and I think Robert is right, you need some kind of in-line compressor going on if using a head-set mic.

Well Ron, you generally need compression for any kind of microphone for live and recorded sound. Basically, anything you do when singing should typically have compression.
