Dynamic, condenser, electret, contact, ribbon, etc. There are many types of microphones and books and schools to learn about microphones and what you should and shouldn’t do. Many people have their own techniques and ways of dealing with microphones.

A microphone can be likened to an ear, something that listens. Of course, there needs to be cables/wireless transmitters, a sound card or a mixing desk and other things connected for it to be “active” and pick up sounds, but speaking of a microphone in use it can be seen as something that listens – an ear.

One microphone, one ear – mono. Two microphones, two ears – stereo.

When listening to something, do you use different ears for different sounds? No, of course not. You don’t replace your ears just because you hear a guitar, a bass drum, a snare, vocal, birds, motorbikes, wind, water, and so on.

Wouldn’t it make sense to use the same kind of microphone/ear for a multi-recording?
