This is a thread for tech questions or comments that don't justify a whole thread of their own.

How much bandwidth does a voice call take?

I was just thinking (watching Prince in the rain) that in the old days, things went to the mixing desk by wire, now it is wireless. Is there anything that can tune into the various feeds? Also, could you record all the feeds and make your own mix?

I'm not sure what you're talking about, telephone exchange and mobile phones? The answer is no, you couldn't intercept all those phone calls, which are encrypted. Unless you're GCHQ.

Would it be classed as cheating to have sex with a robot? What if the robot looked like your partner?

OK, I obviously haven't explained what I mean.

Back in the day, the singer in a band sang into a microphone. The signal from the microphone went by cable to the mixing desk. Now the microphone is wireless, so, a signal is being sent from the mic to the mixing desk. What frequency band does the mic (and all the other things) use, obviously something can pick up the signal, or there would be no sound.

It isn’t ideal to use wireless mics when a wired one can be used. It offers some advantages on stage but I don’t think they’re widely adopted in studio recording scenarios (music, not television) where you want the optimum signal.
 
I know that doesn’t really answer your question but wired mics are very much considered superior to wireless ones. For obvious reasons such as the possibility of interference.
