shotgun & array microphones for speech recognition
Has anyone here experimented with professional shotgun microphones for speech recognition? I'm considering buying this microphone: Audio-Technica AT835B Short Shotgun Condenser Microphone (http://www.fullcompass.com/Products/pages/SKU--23740/)
I believe I can achieve far better results with this mic in a noisy room. I actually plan to use this mic for my home jukebox system (and later in a car system.) The current mics I'm using do work pretty well though. In a car the crown pzm-10 and pzm-11 mic's work pretty well even while on the freeway with a moderate amount of road noise. With the crown mic's I can control my jukebox from 20 feet away with high accuracy in a quiet room. My headset microphone (parrot talkpro) works even better with lots of road noise and the stereo turned up.
I'm also considering buying this microphone - Acoustic Magic (http://www.acousticmagic.com/products/)
Does anyone know which mic might be better in a noisy environment, e.g. human speech, tv, ect.
