Question about array mics
has anyone done a multi-mic setup? i want to make a "multi" microphone so when I talk on discord I can be in a workshop or at pc and people can still hear me I wanted to just solder two mics to the same port but that didn't work or the other mic had lots of static because of the length. is there a circuit I should use? any help is welcome
Have you considered a wireless mic? I made one from those little FM transmitters you can get to play MP3s on old car stereos, and the range and quality was insane. Worth a quick vid, perhaps?
I'd love to watch that. I've thought of uses for those in the past after seeing my buddy use one in his car, never thought of using it as a wireless mic transmitter though. I'm interested to see how you set that all up.
I'm also excited to see what people get up to on this swanky new forum 🙂
Happy building folks.
Yes please Matt! That would be awesome.
I'll add it to my to-do list! I love microphone projects 🙂
@diyperks that be great if you made a video. but honestly i think tech exists but probably not DIY. you know there are some logitech cameras with arays and stuff. keep up the great work
I just ordered most of the parts, but I'm a complete novice. What wattage should the be resistors have? Trying to find the rotary switch, any suggestions? Hoping to find one with a heavy feel and solid/satisfying click when turning on/off.
When it comes to mic stuff, low wattage resistors are fine. They don't have to deal with much power you see, so can be 1/4w, 1/2w or whatever you like.
I like this rotary switch from BitsBox: https://www.bitsbox.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=116_139&products_id=920
