Dad always taught me… If your gonna do something worthwhile, its worth doing right. So, with that in mind and our first show under our belt. It was time to give StreetPX a proper studio.
My dear Blue Yeti remains a staple mic in the mix… but a USB microphone can only do so much with an ensemble podcast such as StreetPX.
The need for multiple input compatibility was immediately realized after the first show. Only to be compounded during our followup recording with four of us huddled around a free hanging Blue Yeti. It worked well enough, but it was time for a new approach.
I kick myself for going USB with my (still loved) Yeti. However, even though it’s not part of the new mix, it will serve me well during those future solo broadcasts and travel work.
It certainly remains a humble “sound studio”, but its our sound studio and that is simply bad ass, just to say. No matter it’s plebeian nature, compared to the others out there, I am digging this new set up and very much looking forward to kicking this Mackie Mix8 mixer and the paired ATR2100’s into gear.
Take a peak at the new StreetPX studio and I must say, I could not be happier.
Now, to add a couple of shock mounts and pop-filters.
Because, truth is, we are [or rather I’m am] fidgety as hell.
Looking forward to our next session. Might just have to do an interlude show just to warm ’em up… What do you think?
