How is the "sound" of a microphone created?
We know that every microphone has its distinct signature, depending on its responses in the free and the diffuse field and some other properties like nonlinearities and the proximity effect. An analysis of this signature is allowed by the following recordings. We have recorded a male speaker with 8 microphones in 6 different rooms - simultaneously! This was done by repeating the recording in each room very similarly.
