I was recently inspired by my friend Liam, who purchased a Snowball microphone. I saw a photo he took of his, and it triggered an A-ha! sort of moment regarding a potential project I might undertake.
So after some looking around, I picked up a Snowball of my own, along with a 6″ pop filter. Set it up this evening and gave it a test drive.
The audio came in pretty well, though I ended up having to lean in a lot. Given the height of the guy, I may need to put a few books underneath the stand for it to properly match my height.
I’m pretty excited to be able to play around with this! Through a recommendation on transom.org, I’ve been fiddling around with Hindenberg to edit audio.
It’s been a very fun evening, playing with new stuff. Now I just need like a solid week and a half off work, so I can do all I want to do.
// Note to self: Stop thinking like that.
