@neumann @nate any microphone recommendations for podcasting?

nate14:07:03

Definitely. We use Blue Yetis (I have the regular and @neumann has the pro).

nate14:07:25

I love the simplicity of plugging in a usb cable and going.

nate14:07:06

They've both complemented the Yeti well.

neumann16:07:15

Also, some non-mic factors to consider....

neumann16:07:28

- Record in a room with the least number of hard surfaces. Clothes closets work amazingly well. Interestingly enough, so do cars.

neumann16:07:45

- Distance from the mic matters a lot. My preference is to use lower gain and be closer to the mic. The closer you are, the more you pick up non-verbal noises like breathing and lip smacking, but then it also sounds a lot more present and clear.

neumann16:07:05

I'm about 6 inches away from my mic.

neumann16:07:18

- Record each voice separately so you can post-process each one. We do a pass with a noise gate and a compressor.

neumann16:07:46

I'd say the compressor is absolutely essential. It's how we get good balance between the voices and a consistent volume.

neumann16:07:03

I'm always happy to share specific settings and such.

neumann16:07:09

We use Audacity.
