Ribbon mics are air velocity transducers.
I don't understand what that means. You got a ribbon suspended in a magnetic
field, right? Sound waves make it move. This induces a current. How does air
velocity come into play?
Omnidirectional mics respond to absolute air pressure.
An omni mic has one opening, right? Is that what you mean by absolute air
Figure-8 mics respond to pressure gradient between the two sides.
Ribbon mics are naturally figure-8 mics, so how does that translate?
Hypercardiod and cardiod pattern mikes are a combination of the two.
Directional mics have two or more openings, correct? How is that a
combination of an omni and a figure 8?
Some mics are switchable among cardioid, figure-8 and omni, so how does that
play into this?
If all that's too much, then just help me out with what you mean by air
velocity transducer 'cause I'm just not getting it.
