Hello everybody. I'm really stuck between a mic and a piezo pickup. Which is better for recording purposes? I've been using a cheap mic which I connect to my ipad and use an audio recorder but just today my mic screwed up. It made it sound so distorted and heavy. Any recommendations? I mainly use my ipad.
Thanks in advance
Ah forgive me for my technical ramblings. Simply put, I'm going to get a piezo pickup and will try recording through it
Sure, it's like a disk instead of a microphone And it's stuck on th body of any instrument, guitars, violins,banjo, etc. It only picks up the sound made by the instruments via vibrations rather than a microphone which picks up everything, outside noise etc
I'd recommend a mic over a piezo pickup for recording. I find pickups are convenient for live performances or getting a specific sound, but using a nice microphone will capture the most accurate audio. The way you connect the mic to the iPad will also affect the audio quality.
