If I sing at 2 inches from my hypercardioid or cardioid microphone I will have proximity effect. If I sing at 4 inches instead (double the distance) the volume sensed by the microphone will drop by 6 db and I will have less proximity effect.

If instead of moving from 2 to 4 inch I just drop the volume of my singing by 6db will I get the same result as If I was singing from 4 inches instead of 2?

I tried to sing at various volume but my trials were not very conclusive….I think that I do not understand very well proximity effect.

Could you decrease the proximity effect solely by lowering the volume? Why?

Thank you!
