You know that because you and I are like a mullets. 3 00:00:08.919 --> 00:00:12.000 It is the is the business. So he's the front part of the 4 00:00:12.039 --> 00:00:15.439 haircut and then I'm the party in the back. I think they're hilarious. 5 00:00:15.839 --> 00:00:20.480 Speaks to me. It's like he's saying what I'm thinking. What is going 6 00:00:20.559 --> 00:00:25.199 on? Everyone?

It's Thursday, it's almost Friday, 8 00:00:28.199 --> 00:00:31.879 so I'm pretty stoked about that. Not that that means anything when you work 9 00:00:31.920 --> 00:00:36.039 for yourself. Just means another day of working for yourself. I guess we 10 00:00:36.079 --> 00:00:39.719 got a great episode. Have you Sinco to my I think right. Is 11 00:00:39.719 --> 00:00:42.039 that right? Yes, mate, fourth, mate, may five, I 12 00:00:42.079 --> 00:00:44.159 mean yesterday was may fourth. Whatever. You know, when you do a 13 00:00:44.240 --> 00:00:47.640 daily live show and you show up every single day, it all just becomes 14 00:00:47.679 --> 00:00:51.719 a blur. But I'm really excited about today's episode because we really be talking 15 00:00:51.719 --> 00:00:56.200 about how do you level up your audio, and this isn't just for people 16 00:00:56.240 --> 00:01:00.359 who are podcasters, are live streamers, but this is really beneficial for people 17 00:01:00.359 --> 00:01:03.879 who maybe want to grow their business or grow their reach or just have fun 18 00:01:03.920 --> 00:01:11.519 guesting on other shows, news networks for instance, or other podcasts of the 19 00:01:11.560 --> 00:01:14.400 live stream shows, those types of things. So, anyway, if you're 20 00:01:14.519 --> 00:01:17.319 kind of curious about that, stay tuned. I'm going to share with you 21 00:01:17.359 --> 00:01:21.200 how to level up your audio without breaking the bank.

Actually, genesis submitted this. 44 00:02:54.039 --> 00:02:58.639 I did a post on on instagram saying hey, will you I want 45 00:02:58.680 --> 00:03:02.520 to support people in my community, in my circle of creators, and I 46 00:03:02.520 --> 00:03:07.280 want to promote their show when to highlight it on my show, and and 47 00:03:07.400 --> 00:03:09.680 she did so. She was one of the people who said Hey, here's 48 00:03:09.680 --> 00:03:13.520 my show, we you promote it. So go check out that. You 49 00:03:13.520 --> 00:03:16.680 know, being a part of a creative communities to support each other, go 50 00:03:16.800 --> 00:03:21.439 listening each other shows, give each other feedback, give each other reviews, 51 00:03:21.599 --> 00:03:24.199 all that kind of fun stuff.

So that is all 56 00:03:42.240 --> 00:03:46.000 I have. I don't have any other segments. I need some more creative 57 00:03:46.039 --> 00:03:47.719 segments, you know. So if you have any ideas, feel free to 58 00:03:47.719 --> 00:03:52.719 shoot on my way, because I'm always curious, like what would people be 59 00:03:52.759 --> 00:03:55.879 interested in, and I've even been listening to a lot more podcasts in live 60 00:03:55.879 --> 00:04:00.919 stream shows to say what. What kind of segments would I be interested in 61 00:04:00.960 --> 00:04:03.800 doing? Like would that be a you know, like a I don't know, 62 00:04:03.919 --> 00:04:06.960 like a current events segment? Probably not. Like I have a news 63 00:04:06.960 --> 00:04:11.159 segment, but I never really dive into it and never really get into the 64 00:04:11.159 --> 00:04:15.639 news because there's only so much creator news. But Anyway, whatever, I'm 65 00:04:15.680 --> 00:04:17.680 going to stop brambling on about all that kind of stuff and let's get into 66 00:04:17.759 --> 00:04:21.560 talking about audio and how to level up your audio. So this is one 67 00:04:21.600 --> 00:04:27.680 of the questions I get a lot from podcasters, from live streamers like man, 68 00:04:27.720 --> 00:04:30.720 how does your audio sound so good? Now I'm not going to talk 69 00:04:30.720 --> 00:04:35.600 about my setup because I've been a creator and really working on growing my podcast, 70 00:04:35.680 --> 00:04:40.000 growing my studio space, growing, you know, my gear, my 71 00:04:40.040 --> 00:04:44.519 equipment, for several years and luckily I've been able to do that by having 72 00:04:44.519 --> 00:04:46.920 a podcast. It's monetized the reinvesting, you know, all those kinds of 73 00:04:46.959 --> 00:04:49.639 things. So I'm not gonna start. I'm going to talk about some of 74 00:04:49.680 --> 00:04:53.920 the elements and I use, but I'm not going to start off like that 75 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:58.079 because that's, you know, pretty expensive thing if you're just getting started and 76 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:00.639 you want to just level up from, you know, from like maybe I 77 00:05:00.680 --> 00:05:02.839 got headphones with a lapel mic on it and I just want to show up 78 00:05:02.879 --> 00:05:06.759 a little bit more professional, both, you know, with with audio. 79 00:05:06.920 --> 00:05:11.439 We'll talk about video later, but today we're going to just super focus on 80 00:05:11.480 --> 00:05:14.959 audio, and you might ask yourself, why do I want to do that? 81 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:18.160 Why would I want to have a microphone? Why would I want to 82 00:05:18.199 --> 00:05:21.519 make sure I have good headphones, all that kind of stuff? In the 83 00:05:21.600 --> 00:05:28.600 opportunity for you to be a guest on other people's podcast, their live shows, 84 00:05:28.639 --> 00:05:31.879 like I mentioned earlier, maybe a new show or television program it's getting 85 00:05:31.920 --> 00:05:35.920 more and more especially in this virtual, more virtual world that we're living in, 86 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:39.399 which we'll talk about more about that tomorrow, by the way. Chris 87 00:05:39.480 --> 00:05:43.839 Jiles going to be joining me about web three tomorrow in in FT's and coins 88 00:05:43.879 --> 00:05:46.959 and how we can use them to monetize as creators. But the more that 89 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:53.199 we move into that, the more that we're gonna have opportunity to join other 90 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:57.360 people in this virtual world and this virtual space to, you know, be 91 00:05:57.399 --> 00:05:59.560 a part of what they're doing, to be a part of their community. 92 00:05:59.600 --> 00:06:03.079 There audience, in to grow our audience, bring awareness about what we're doing. 93 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:09.720 And so you can really do pretty small adjustments to have a huge impact 94 00:06:09.720 --> 00:06:12.600 on your audio, on your video, on your video as well. But 95 00:06:12.639 --> 00:06:15.399 today I'm trying to talk about audio. Okay, I love video, but 96 00:06:15.399 --> 00:06:17.879 I'm trying to talk just about audio. So I want you think about that 97 00:06:17.959 --> 00:06:20.560 when you are you know what we're kind of going through this and you're going, 98 00:06:20.560 --> 00:06:25.519 why would I ever do that? It works. All these products I'm 99 00:06:25.519 --> 00:06:29.000 going to talk to tell you about will literally do you know, like they'll 100 00:06:29.079 --> 00:06:30.680 up your game on zoom. You do a lot of zoom calls, do 101 00:06:30.680 --> 00:06:34.040 a lot of virtual meetings. If you're on like guild, if you're on 102 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:39.199 guild and you're doing a live show, it's going to up your audio quality 103 00:06:39.199 --> 00:06:41.759 over there. It's going to up your audio quality on bull horns, going 104 00:06:41.800 --> 00:06:46.680 to up with audio quality for Youtube or whatever. So think about your whole 105 00:06:46.680 --> 00:06:48.439 world, what you do, even phone calls, right, I hook my 106 00:06:48.439 --> 00:06:53.279 phone right in, which I'll show you a product that I recommend for that 107 00:06:53.279 --> 00:06:57.160 that's not as expensive as what I have and I will will kind of jump 108 00:06:57.199 --> 00:07:00.319 into it. But even for audio phone calls, I use my I use 109 00:07:00.399 --> 00:07:03.000 my I use my microphone, I use my sound system. So anyway, 110 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:08.600 maybe I'm just nerdy, but we'll jump right into this. And what kind 111 00:07:08.600 --> 00:07:12.240 of inspired this episode, by the way, is I was listening to a 112 00:07:12.319 --> 00:07:17.439 podcast in the lady that was in the podcast was interested in starting her own 113 00:07:17.480 --> 00:07:20.279 podcast. So this is a Kay, let me say podcast a lot, 114 00:07:20.319 --> 00:07:24.920 but this was a podcast about podcasting, talking to a lady who wanted to 115 00:07:24.959 --> 00:07:28.639 start a podcast that they were talking about podcasting. Okay, that's all Meta. 116 00:07:28.720 --> 00:07:31.759 And so anyway, so she was talking about buying this equipment buying this 117 00:07:31.839 --> 00:07:36.600 gear to just create her own content, and then all of a sudden she 118 00:07:36.680 --> 00:07:40.480 was a public speaker, she's going to all these events. We all know, 119 00:07:40.519 --> 00:07:43.240 two thousand and twenty happened, Blah, blah, blah. And fast 120 00:07:43.279 --> 00:07:46.240 forward and now she's like doing all this virtual stuff, and now she's like 121 00:07:46.279 --> 00:07:51.560 co hosting a radio show, she's cohosting on a TV segment and she's doing 122 00:07:51.600 --> 00:07:56.959 all this really because she showed up professionally with her audio gear, in her 123 00:07:57.040 --> 00:08:01.399 video stuff, it was able to present and give them what they wanted as 124 00:08:01.439 --> 00:08:05.600 far as quality of content, as far as the you know, just the 125 00:08:05.879 --> 00:08:09.399 just the produce, production of contact, should say. So think about that 126 00:08:09.439 --> 00:08:13.759 as we're going to going through this, and maybe what would fit your needs 127 00:08:13.800 --> 00:08:16.480 the most, or maybe you didn't even realize you had needs. He found 128 00:08:16.480 --> 00:08:18.920 this live stream out of curiosity, because you're just like, oh, I 129 00:08:18.959 --> 00:08:20.240 know, billy, I'm going to check it out. There might be some 130 00:08:20.279 --> 00:08:24.439 opportunities for you to show up on in other worlds, so to speak, 131 00:08:24.439 --> 00:08:30.560 in other people's worlds virtually. So let's jump right into microphones. Now. 132 00:08:30.560 --> 00:08:35.279 I'm going to bring up an Amazon page and if you're interested in buying anything, 133 00:08:35.720 --> 00:08:41.279 my friend John to spins and I do have an Amazon live. We're 134 00:08:41.360 --> 00:08:43.240 part of the Amazon live program so you can go to a stream team dot 135 00:08:43.320 --> 00:08:48.120 line, I think a stream team livecom and that's our Amazon store. I'll 136 00:08:48.159 --> 00:08:50.159 bring it up. I should have put on the screen, but it's not 137 00:08:50.159 --> 00:08:52.519 really like a hey, go by my Amazon stuff like. I just want 138 00:08:52.519 --> 00:08:56.120 to show you the products, the tools that you might need. So let's 139 00:08:56.200 --> 00:09:01.840 jump over to microphones. In the first microphone. The first thing you need 140 00:09:01.879 --> 00:09:05.399 to know about a microphone is if you just go out and you go oh, 141 00:09:05.440 --> 00:09:11.360 podcast microphone, more than likely you're going to get populated with condenser microphones. 142 00:09:11.399 --> 00:09:13.840 I don't know why this is. You know, maybe it's a thing, 143 00:09:13.879 --> 00:09:16.960 but a condenser microphone. I'm going to keep this really simple. I'm 144 00:09:18.000 --> 00:09:20.320 going to hold up this microphone to explain. Now this is not a condenser, 145 00:09:20.360 --> 00:09:24.080 but if this was a condenser microphone, the audio would be picked up 146 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:28.480 from all the way around this microphone. All right, so all sides of 147 00:09:28.480 --> 00:09:31.559 it. It's it's bringing in audio. It's very sensitive, like everything inside 148 00:09:31.559 --> 00:09:35.720 of its sensitive. You know, if somebody slams doing the next room, 149 00:09:35.759 --> 00:09:39.519 you can hear it, all right. So that's a condenser microphone. Now, 150 00:09:39.639 --> 00:09:43.440 unless you have a studio quality room, which we'll talk about how to 151 00:09:43.639 --> 00:09:46.879 kind of sound not sound proof but maybe sound treat a room. But unless 152 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:52.679 you have like a studio quality room that is soundproof or very well sound treated, 153 00:09:52.759 --> 00:09:56.519 you might not get the best audio from this. Might Get a lot 154 00:09:56.600 --> 00:10:00.960 of echoes, you might get a lot of background noise and outside noise and 155 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:03.559 all that kind of stuff. Now this is a dynamic microphone as well as 156 00:10:03.600 --> 00:10:07.919 the one I'm talking into. And what the beauty of it is it only 157 00:10:07.960 --> 00:10:13.879 picks up like pretty much like facing into it. So this microphone I'm talking 158 00:10:13.919 --> 00:10:16.279 into, you can see I'm talking directly into it. I might have it 159 00:10:16.320 --> 00:10:20.039 at a, you know, like a forty five degree angle, or I 160 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:22.279 try to at least. And I talked through it's, you know, here 161 00:10:22.320 --> 00:10:26.440 all these puplosives or Peter Piper picked a peck of pickup peppers or whatever that's 162 00:10:26.480 --> 00:10:28.879 called. So you don't hear all this Plosore. Some I'm speaking across it 163 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:33.600 like this. However, all the sound is really right here. So if 164 00:10:33.600 --> 00:10:35.120 I move over this way. Hey, what's up, guys, can you 165 00:10:35.159 --> 00:10:37.320 hear me? Can hear me? You can still hear me, but it's 166 00:10:37.360 --> 00:10:41.039 not as clear, it's not as concise. So if I'm I'm moving around 167 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:43.960 it, I'm moving up here behind it, so you can kind of see 168 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:48.039 as I move around it, it's picking up less and less audio and it's 169 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:52.879 blocking out all you know, doing a really good job blocking out all this 170 00:10:52.960 --> 00:10:56.919 and all the stuff behind me. So similar to this microphone. It's as 171 00:10:58.000 --> 00:11:00.960 sensitive here, but all around here's not going to be. So you want 172 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:03.960 that, you want a dynamic microphone. Now, sorry, I get a 173 00:11:03.960 --> 00:11:07.039 little too nerdy there and I'm not even that nerdy about it. Okay, 174 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:09.600 I really am not an audio file. I just want to tell you, 175 00:11:09.639 --> 00:11:13.559 like buy a dynamic microphone, and you might say, okay, now, 176 00:11:13.600 --> 00:11:16.080 which one? Now? This is where it gets interesting, because there's kind 177 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:20.360 of two different ones that you can pick up here. You can pick up 178 00:11:20.639 --> 00:11:24.440 nowadays anyway. You can pick up a USB microphone, dynamic microphone, or 179 00:11:24.480 --> 00:11:28.919 you can pick up an xl our microphone, which needs some additional equipment. 180 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:33.559 But before we jump into that one, let's jump into what I would recommend 181 00:11:33.600 --> 00:11:39.639 for a USB microphone. So actually get the wrong one selected here. Let 182 00:11:39.679 --> 00:11:43.879 me look this up. This is a ATR twe hundred X. that's his 183 00:11:43.960 --> 00:11:46.879 twenty two hundred exs. Okay, whatever, it brought up the right one, 184 00:11:48.759 --> 00:11:50.320 so let's jump into this one. So, as you can see here, 185 00:11:50.399 --> 00:11:54.399 if you're looking at your Amazon listings, this is audio technical at Atr 186 00:11:54.480 --> 00:12:00.519 Twenty one hundred x USB cardioid microphone, and this is a dynamic microphone. 187 00:12:00.559 --> 00:12:03.840 This is the word that you're looking for, is dynamic, and you want 188 00:12:03.879 --> 00:12:07.200 to make sure that you bought unless, lets you have a sound treted room. 189 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:07.960 But the cool thing about this, and I don't know if they're going 190 00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:15.480 to show pictures, is this is USB and xcelr. So you guys know 191 00:12:15.519 --> 00:12:16.799 what a USB port looks like. Let me see if they have any other 192 00:12:16.840 --> 00:12:20.879 additional pictures done here. Oh yeah, so you can see this picture right 193 00:12:20.919 --> 00:12:24.960 here in the middle. So this is the USBC, this is a headphone 194 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:31.159 Jack, this is an audio adjustment and then this three prong system right here 195 00:12:31.320 --> 00:12:33.879 is for Xlr. But you can see where they have this set up right 196 00:12:33.879 --> 00:12:39.440 beside of a computer. You May, depending on what software you're recording with, 197 00:12:39.519 --> 00:12:41.759 be able to hook it right into your phone. A lot of different 198 00:12:41.840 --> 00:12:46.240 options with this. Now I'm going to switch back to this camera and show 199 00:12:46.320 --> 00:12:50.320 you that this is the let's see if it'll do it here. We'll see 200 00:12:50.440 --> 00:12:52.000 is it going to do it? Okay, cool. So you can see 201 00:12:52.039 --> 00:12:56.440 these three prongs here. Now this is called xcelr. I'm not going to 202 00:12:56.480 --> 00:13:00.799 get into all of it, but the cool thing about these microphones that I'm 203 00:13:00.879 --> 00:13:07.440 showing you is you can use it as a USB microphone and just go right 204 00:13:07.519 --> 00:13:09.639 into your computer, go right into your doll, your sound system, your 205 00:13:09.679 --> 00:13:13.879 live streams of your live streaming on guild, you know, or somewhere like 206 00:13:13.919 --> 00:13:18.399 this. Then you can you can push that audio there and just literally select 207 00:13:18.480 --> 00:13:22.799 it in your microphone settings when you open up the program so like stream hard 208 00:13:22.879 --> 00:13:28.039 or Ecam or whatever, it'll recognize that audio and it'll be able to bring 209 00:13:28.080 --> 00:13:33.120 it right in. And then, as you progress in your knowledge of you 210 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:35.399 progressed in your you know, you're like, okay, I like this, 211 00:13:35.399 --> 00:13:39.200 this is cool, but I want a little more control. Then you can 212 00:13:39.279 --> 00:13:45.600 add an interface and you're already set up because it has that. It has 213 00:13:45.679 --> 00:13:48.600 this Xlar Jack Right there, so it's already set up for that. So 214 00:13:50.000 --> 00:13:52.759 this is this is a good microphone. The ATR twenty one hundred x I 215 00:13:52.759 --> 00:13:56.279 would definitely recommend it. I have the ETR twenty one hundred, so a 216 00:13:56.320 --> 00:14:01.960 little bit older version, and it looks like this is USBC, so really 217 00:14:01.960 --> 00:14:07.639 good microphone. It's like a hundred bucks. The next one is a Samsun 218 00:14:07.799 --> 00:14:13.320 Q. to you. Now, this is very similar to the one I 219 00:14:13.320 --> 00:14:15.840 just showed you. It's a little bit cheaper, about thirty bucks cheaper, 220 00:14:15.840 --> 00:14:18.639 two and thirty bucks whatever, but same thing. You can play this thing 221 00:14:18.720 --> 00:14:22.440 right in your computer and you can see similar outputs there. Now this is 222 00:14:22.480 --> 00:14:28.559 like a different USB model or USB port, but you can see same same 223 00:14:28.600 --> 00:14:33.159 situation there and you can kind of grow into it, and this is what 224 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:37.480 I would definitely recommend for. You know, somebody who is a beginner, 225 00:14:37.679 --> 00:14:41.399 somebody who, you're not very techy. You just want to plug and play 226 00:14:41.399 --> 00:14:43.759 and this is going to do it. You could literally plug it in, 227 00:14:45.279 --> 00:14:48.840 select it out of an options menu for your audio settings in your Mac or 228 00:14:48.919 --> 00:14:54.440 windows machine and literally be going going for it. You're done, you're like, 229 00:14:54.480 --> 00:14:56.000 you're ready to rock and roll. All right, so that that is 230 00:14:56.080 --> 00:15:01.759 kind of a basic microphone. Now what I'll do is will jump into will 231 00:15:01.840 --> 00:15:07.159 jump into another microphone here as well. That is so I told you about 232 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:09.679 the Samson at or the ATR twenty one hundred. X talked about the Samsu 233 00:15:09.679 --> 00:15:13.159 on q to You. Now let's jump over to sure, because you might 234 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:18.799 be like hey, I want a little bit better of a microphone, but 235 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:22.519 you know, I can spend a little bit more money. You know, 236 00:15:22.519 --> 00:15:26.559 maybe got a two hundred and sixty two hundred and seventy dollar range. You 237 00:15:26.600 --> 00:15:31.440 can pick up one of these. Trying to see a package. It doesn't 238 00:15:31.440 --> 00:15:33.360 matter, you know, whicheveryone like. You can shop around for it. 239 00:15:35.559 --> 00:15:37.720 But this is the the sure. Let me put it on the right screen 240 00:15:37.759 --> 00:15:41.960 so you can see it. This is the shirt MV seven USB microphone. 241 00:15:41.960 --> 00:15:46.600 It comes with a tripod. You might need that. I'm going to tell 242 00:15:46.600 --> 00:15:50.960 you about something else that I actually recommend over that, but this is this 243 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:56.039 is the MV Seven. This is sure. It's one of their newer microphones 244 00:15:56.399 --> 00:16:00.440 and the cool thing is it's made out of the same components as this like 245 00:16:00.480 --> 00:16:07.039 four hundred microphone, and actually some people will use this cover that goes over 246 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:12.919 this microphone on that shirt in the seven and get a very similar result from 247 00:16:14.000 --> 00:16:15.360 that. So you'll once again, this is two hundred and sixty nine, 248 00:16:15.360 --> 00:16:21.200 because it's got this little sure try pod or whatever, but similar, similar 249 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.399 to the other ones that I showed you. This as your headphone Jack, 250 00:16:23.480 --> 00:16:29.200 your xlar in your USB. So you can it's great. You can plug 251 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:33.440 in in Usb in the Nice you grow, you can put it into your 252 00:16:33.440 --> 00:16:37.960 computer. Now this thing does have some settings and software and all that kind 253 00:16:37.960 --> 00:16:40.399 of stuff that comes with it, which is kind of cool. So you 254 00:16:40.399 --> 00:16:44.720 can really, unlike the other two microphones, you can dive into the settings 255 00:16:44.759 --> 00:16:47.559 a little bit and kind of dial it in for your voice, dial it 256 00:16:47.600 --> 00:16:51.600 in the way that you want it and and really like create some magic that 257 00:16:51.600 --> 00:16:56.000 way. so that's MV Seven. That's a little bit of a step up, 258 00:16:56.039 --> 00:16:59.080 you know, pricewise, in in quality wise as well, though not 259 00:16:59.159 --> 00:17:03.159 just price but quality as well. Now the next thing here that will kind 260 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:06.400 of jump into. So those, those are all kind of USB microphones. 261 00:17:06.559 --> 00:17:10.880 What I would recommend now, let's say we're going to go into, you 262 00:17:10.920 --> 00:17:14.519 know, just xcelr, so no USB, but just xl R. It's 263 00:17:14.519 --> 00:17:18.039 get this plug here with the three prongs and and let's talk about those microphones. 264 00:17:18.079 --> 00:17:23.519 But they need some additional equipment, which will also talk about as we 265 00:17:23.599 --> 00:17:26.240 jump into them. So let me. I'm switching screens back here. I 266 00:17:26.279 --> 00:17:30.559 don't have I need more monitors. When I get back to North Carolina in 267 00:17:30.599 --> 00:17:34.759 about twenty days or so, or or for that set up right, more 268 00:17:34.799 --> 00:17:38.720 than twenty days, I'll have some. So let's look at the sure SM 269 00:17:38.960 --> 00:17:44.839 fifty eight. This is an iconic microphone. It's actually the one I have 270 00:17:44.880 --> 00:17:48.039 in my hand that I that I've been using here. So let's jump over 271 00:17:48.720 --> 00:17:55.279 and let's talk about this one for for eighty nine bucks. This microphone, 272 00:17:55.319 --> 00:18:00.680 you've probably seen it on just about every vocal stage, every comedy stage you 273 00:18:00.720 --> 00:18:04.119 know that you've probably ever been to. I know you've seen, you know, 274 00:18:04.119 --> 00:18:08.000 people singing with this backup singers. I mean this thing is a classic 275 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:12.880 microphone and it is Super duper heavy. It's I mean it's like, yeah, 276 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:17.359 I've traveled with this thing. I dropped to seeing it's pretty dope. 277 00:18:17.440 --> 00:18:19.240 You can actually you can take it apart and clean it. So if you 278 00:18:19.319 --> 00:18:25.079 own like a if you own like a bar or restaurant or something like that, 279 00:18:26.039 --> 00:18:30.839 if you're a podcaster with the side job of owning a bar, you 280 00:18:30.880 --> 00:18:33.440 can. You can clean this out and it's got you can spray this out 281 00:18:33.519 --> 00:18:37.039 and clean it, sanitize it and let it try all those kinds of things. 282 00:18:37.039 --> 00:18:40.319 So Anyway, and I'm sure you could clean all these other ones as 283 00:18:40.359 --> 00:18:42.319 well, but I just I just know that because I've done that before. 284 00:18:42.640 --> 00:18:48.319 But yeah, this this smseven or fifty eight rather than fifty eight. Super 285 00:18:48.440 --> 00:18:52.640 Great Microphone, it sounds. You know what I should have I should have 286 00:18:52.640 --> 00:18:56.079 probably plugged it in and show you how it sounds, because in my opinion 287 00:18:56.279 --> 00:19:00.160 it gives these other microphones a run for their money. Like this is a 288 00:19:00.559 --> 00:19:04.200 ninety dollar, a hundred dollar microphone. This is a four hundred microphone, 289 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:11.079 and I would use this microphone in not buy a four hundred one, which 290 00:19:11.079 --> 00:19:15.839 I did pay full price, by the way, just full transparency. I 291 00:19:15.880 --> 00:19:18.279 would probably use this, but I just don't like the way it looks on 292 00:19:18.359 --> 00:19:22.720 camera. As you can see, what's up look scooby in my opinion. 293 00:19:22.799 --> 00:19:25.319 So whatever I saw, I saw like the fifty eight and I want to 294 00:19:25.319 --> 00:19:27.200 be like Joe Rogan. Okay, that's what he is, or the BS 295 00:19:27.279 --> 00:19:32.319 want to be like Joe. Make be more like now I'm just messing anyway. 296 00:19:32.359 --> 00:19:33.720 So that's the that's the fifty eight. This is a little bit of 297 00:19:33.759 --> 00:19:38.160 a step up. Now let's jump into let me look at it. When 298 00:19:38.200 --> 00:19:41.160 I got next to here, I'm jumping around. All right, cool. 299 00:19:41.200 --> 00:19:45.640 So that's the fifty eight. Oh okay. So here's another one. Here 300 00:19:45.839 --> 00:19:49.720 is the and I'm just picking out sure products because I really like them, 301 00:19:49.759 --> 00:19:55.319 I've used them. And this is the MV seven x. Now this is 302 00:19:55.400 --> 00:19:59.400 the same microphone that I just showed you. Excuse me, but it is 303 00:19:59.440 --> 00:20:03.799 a hundred and fifty bucks, or a hundred forty nine dollars, and it 304 00:20:03.920 --> 00:20:10.640 is it's just xcel are. So that's pretty cool as well. So you 305 00:20:10.680 --> 00:20:14.240 can you don't have to have all the USB stuff and it doesn't have all 306 00:20:14.279 --> 00:20:17.799 the settings and all that kind of stuff that you can mess with. So 307 00:20:17.880 --> 00:20:21.519 this is just an xlr mic. Super Good. But once again, you 308 00:20:21.599 --> 00:20:25.480 need a little bit of an interface. And and just for Giggles, I 309 00:20:25.480 --> 00:20:27.839 will I'm kind of showing you good, better and best, if you will. 310 00:20:27.960 --> 00:20:33.160 So just for just for Giggles, I'll show you the seven be because 311 00:20:33.160 --> 00:20:37.440 you might want it. Maybe you've already, you know, leveled up or 312 00:20:37.480 --> 00:20:41.559 whatever you want to like a really level up. This is a great microphone. 313 00:20:41.599 --> 00:20:45.039 I use it, this one I'm using right now, and I think 314 00:20:45.039 --> 00:20:48.480 it's awesome. So you know, some people give it crap, but this 315 00:20:48.599 --> 00:20:52.519 is the this is the microphone that Michael Jackson recorded thriller on. So if 316 00:20:52.519 --> 00:20:55.359 that doesn't sell you, I don't know what here. Let me jump over 317 00:20:55.359 --> 00:20:57.359 here. I'm not even showing you, guys pictures because I'm getting distracted, 318 00:20:57.359 --> 00:21:00.720 but this is the seven B. It's awesome. It does show you. 319 00:21:02.920 --> 00:21:07.359 It is the one that Michael Jackson used for thriller, but broadcasting, podcasting 320 00:21:07.400 --> 00:21:11.799 recording. I know musician friends, studio owners who have this and these things 321 00:21:11.839 --> 00:21:15.039 are rugged. I throw it in my carry on and taking around when I 322 00:21:15.079 --> 00:21:18.960 fly. It's pretty awesome and it comes with some good accessories. I think 323 00:21:19.000 --> 00:21:22.599 my I think my three year old has this, but I have this big 324 00:21:22.640 --> 00:21:26.880 poofy one that will block out some more additional sound and give you a little 325 00:21:26.880 --> 00:21:30.759 bit more of that radio voice if you want it. But anyway, that's 326 00:21:30.759 --> 00:21:33.319 not why I bought it. I just bought it because I got to get 327 00:21:33.319 --> 00:21:37.559 deal on it from a friend of mine. And so so all these are 328 00:21:37.559 --> 00:21:44.799 are dynamic and they are all xlr now with xlar. So I feel like 329 00:21:44.839 --> 00:21:48.000 I'm just talking a lot. I Apologize, by the way. Feel free 330 00:21:48.039 --> 00:21:51.279 to say hello and any of the chats near you and we'll we'll see what 331 00:21:51.279 --> 00:21:53.119 you're up to. I'm just going to check out. I got so many 332 00:21:53.160 --> 00:21:56.920 windows open here. I'm just going to check out make sure if I got 333 00:21:56.960 --> 00:22:00.160 any chats over here. No, no chats here. Okay, great, 334 00:22:02.799 --> 00:22:04.400 all right, cool. Anyway, something is not working, but I don't 335 00:22:04.440 --> 00:22:08.079 care because if it doesn't work, I just keep going. So so now 336 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:12.680 let's talk about some interfaces. Let's talk about a few different ones that I 337 00:22:12.720 --> 00:22:18.400 would recommend. So the first one that I'm going to recommend is a scarlet 338 00:22:18.519 --> 00:22:22.079 too I too. Now, this is this company focus, right. They've 339 00:22:22.079 --> 00:22:26.480 been around forever. It's probably one of the most iconic interfaces that you can 340 00:22:26.480 --> 00:22:32.000 that you can buy, and this is going to you create that connection that 341 00:22:32.039 --> 00:22:38.079 you need from your xl or microphone into your computer. So it's just called 342 00:22:38.079 --> 00:22:44.720 a USB interface. Super Great. I used to own the two eye to. 343 00:22:44.839 --> 00:22:48.519 Right here, I'm going to actually pull this up without all the stuff 344 00:22:48.519 --> 00:22:52.039 so we can take a look at it, and you can see right here 345 00:22:52.079 --> 00:22:57.920 this is two channels, so you can get your too xlr microphones and then 346 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:02.599 this is like a dual Jack. So if you are like a musician. 347 00:23:03.240 --> 00:23:07.200 You can plug your, you know, Guitar into there, your keyboard into 348 00:23:07.200 --> 00:23:08.960 their, whatever you want, whatever takes a quarter inch Jack, you can 349 00:23:08.960 --> 00:23:14.599 plug it in and it's pretty easy. Like you can see this green circle 350 00:23:14.640 --> 00:23:17.920 and you can see this red so green. If you turn it up and 351 00:23:17.960 --> 00:23:21.640 it's green, you're good. If you turn it up too much the game 352 00:23:21.799 --> 00:23:25.359 and it goes red, you're not good. So you just turn it down. 353 00:23:25.559 --> 00:23:26.839 Has a little bit of an air effect, you know. Can switch 354 00:23:26.880 --> 00:23:33.599 between instrument and XLR. It's IT ALLSO has phantom power, forty e Volt 355 00:23:33.599 --> 00:23:37.680 Phantom power, which you may need if you got this seven be so this 356 00:23:37.759 --> 00:23:42.039 is a really good, really super solid interface. There's a couple things I 357 00:23:42.039 --> 00:23:45.799 don't like about it, you know, one thing it doesn't in this isn't 358 00:23:45.799 --> 00:23:49.119 really made for podcasting, because this has been around forever, but it is 359 00:23:49.240 --> 00:23:52.559 made. It doesn't have mixed minus and it doesn't have a way to plug 360 00:23:52.599 --> 00:23:56.440 in your phone. So those are two things I don't really care. But 361 00:23:56.480 --> 00:24:00.799 it does have monitors out in the back. If you're a musician and you're 362 00:24:00.880 --> 00:24:03.279 like I got you know, I want to do it in studio thing. 363 00:24:03.759 --> 00:24:11.279 I would probably recommend this if you want to do virtual stuff and zoom calls 364 00:24:11.319 --> 00:24:15.279 and you know all that kind of crap. I wouldn't, I wouldn't necessarily 365 00:24:15.279 --> 00:24:17.680 get this one, and this is the reason why I sold it in bought 366 00:24:17.720 --> 00:24:19.599 something else, so so we can talk about what you know, what I 367 00:24:19.640 --> 00:24:22.119 would definitely recommend for that, which is I just wanted to show you this 368 00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:26.880 and keeps there are some musicians that watch this or whatever, but the pod 369 00:24:26.920 --> 00:24:33.799 track P four. This is what I would recommend probably for ninety percent of 370 00:24:33.799 --> 00:24:41.000 people trying to either get their audio established they want to interface. They don't 371 00:24:41.000 --> 00:24:44.519 want to spend a ton of money. For the two hundred and twenty dollar 372 00:24:44.599 --> 00:24:48.920 price point. This thing is phenomenal. I have one. My cohost currently 373 00:24:49.000 --> 00:24:52.880 uses it because I have the road cast pro which I'll show you the minute. 374 00:24:52.359 --> 00:24:56.359 But this thing is so dope. It has, first of all, 375 00:24:56.400 --> 00:25:00.880 it has four headphone or microphone inputs, so you so you can pull you 376 00:25:00.960 --> 00:25:06.200 up to four microphones in here. It's it's a really almost a size of 377 00:25:06.240 --> 00:25:10.400 like one of those like old school shavers, is probably like a little bit 378 00:25:10.440 --> 00:25:11.720 bigger. I mean that grip is probably the same as my phone, a 379 00:25:11.720 --> 00:25:15.000 little bit bigger, not very heavy. Throat in a bag, throwating to 380 00:25:15.079 --> 00:25:19.119 carry on and kind of go for it does feel a little plastic, but 381 00:25:19.200 --> 00:25:22.319 you know, it is one of this and zoom products always kind of feel 382 00:25:22.359 --> 00:25:26.640 that way. So anyway, it's got fo xlr inputs. It has four 383 00:25:26.680 --> 00:25:30.200 as you can see up here. These are four different volume control and then 384 00:25:30.279 --> 00:25:36.160 right under those volume controls you do have a microphone. Then Phantom power, 385 00:25:36.680 --> 00:25:40.519 so regular dynamic mic and if you need fansom power, which I'm still on 386 00:25:40.599 --> 00:25:44.640 my list to talk to you about. That is for all four channels. 387 00:25:44.720 --> 00:25:48.200 You have those options. And then for channel three, if you see you 388 00:25:48.319 --> 00:25:53.640 toggle this little switch over to phone and there's a trrs Mike with mixed minus 389 00:25:53.680 --> 00:25:59.920 that you can plug into there. And then also there's a USB on Channel 390 00:26:00.000 --> 00:26:03.640 Four, so you can plug that into your computer. My Gosh, you 391 00:26:03.720 --> 00:26:06.759 don't see it. There we go. All right. So here's all the 392 00:26:06.799 --> 00:26:08.759 stuff I was talking about, because I'm trying to live, switch and talk 393 00:26:08.799 --> 00:26:14.160 at the same time. But Phantom power, regular microphones for all four channels. 394 00:26:14.400 --> 00:26:18.400 Phone Channel, switch it all the way over. That little dial or 395 00:26:18.400 --> 00:26:21.240 a little switch there. Switch it all the way over and you can plug 396 00:26:21.240 --> 00:26:26.720 in a trrs to t rrs cable and talked on your phone, take live 397 00:26:26.799 --> 00:26:30.480 phone calls, set up a google voice account and bring in phone calls. 398 00:26:30.880 --> 00:26:34.880 Or if somebody wants to do a phone interview with you or your the Interviewe. 399 00:26:36.759 --> 00:26:41.599 You can call in from this device and get to really nice microphone sound 400 00:26:41.839 --> 00:26:45.200 and then also over here with USB. So then you just flick it over 401 00:26:45.240 --> 00:26:51.720 and there is a setting inside of this little this little panel here, that 402 00:26:51.759 --> 00:26:55.920 you have to turn on what's called USB mix minus, and so basically that 403 00:26:56.079 --> 00:27:00.759 is the mix yourself, so you don't get a loop back into your ears 404 00:27:00.839 --> 00:27:03.319 or whatever. I don't know all the technical terms. Somebody's going to grill 405 00:27:03.359 --> 00:27:07.880 me for that in a comments, I'm sure, but that's all you got 406 00:27:07.880 --> 00:27:10.400 it. It's all you need to know. Right just like click it over, 407 00:27:10.440 --> 00:27:12.279 go change that setting. You change it once, you'll leave it there. 408 00:27:12.319 --> 00:27:15.839 It is. Then move down real quick for mute buttons if you want 409 00:27:15.839 --> 00:27:19.000 to mute a couple of channels, and I will tell you on this particular 410 00:27:19.039 --> 00:27:25.599 device I have noticed that these channels, if you are using like Channel One 411 00:27:25.640 --> 00:27:29.440 and you have these three other ones unmuted, you want to turn them down 412 00:27:29.599 --> 00:27:32.359 or mute them because they will give you a little bit of Ruckus, a 413 00:27:32.359 --> 00:27:36.359 little bit of noise there. So you definitely want to do that. What 414 00:27:36.559 --> 00:27:41.319 is up knee is in the house. Over in the chat. What's up 415 00:27:41.359 --> 00:27:45.240 knee? Get to see a man. He says it's an awesome recorder to 416 00:27:45.279 --> 00:27:48.920 have. I A hundred percent agree. I think their phenomenal. It's like 417 00:27:48.960 --> 00:27:52.720 one of my favorite ones and I can probably use it all the time, 418 00:27:52.880 --> 00:27:56.000 but I got I had a little anyway. I will go in the story, 419 00:27:56.000 --> 00:27:59.920 but I have a little studio and decided that the rookst pro better serve 420 00:28:00.000 --> 00:28:03.599 my clients. However, I may sell it and go back to something similar 421 00:28:03.640 --> 00:28:07.720 to this. All right, now let's keep moving on here. About the 422 00:28:07.759 --> 00:28:12.079 pot track before, because it is pretty awesome. All right. So then 423 00:28:12.079 --> 00:28:15.119 you move down here to ABCD. Those are all sound pads, so you 424 00:28:15.160 --> 00:28:18.000 can program them to make different sounds. So if you want to make like 425 00:28:18.039 --> 00:28:26.200 a little cash reister sound or you know whatever sound, or you know bleep 426 00:28:26.240 --> 00:28:30.720 out whatever you can, you can set up up to for those. And 427 00:28:30.720 --> 00:28:33.599 then it also has that little dial right there, so that's the sound pad 428 00:28:33.680 --> 00:28:37.079 volume control. Then there's like menu stuff, toggling. Many these kind of 429 00:28:37.079 --> 00:28:41.319 ore like dual purpose, like play record. You know all that, and 430 00:28:41.359 --> 00:28:45.240 then also helps you navigate through the menu. And then my favorite part, 431 00:28:45.240 --> 00:28:48.839 which this sounds kind of weird to say, my favorite part. But unlike 432 00:28:48.920 --> 00:28:53.480 the scarlet two eye too, there's not different headphone output. So sometimes you 433 00:28:53.480 --> 00:28:57.839 get a split those headphone outputs, but this has four different ones, which 434 00:28:57.920 --> 00:29:02.599 is just huge. So everyone can set their own levels, you know, 435 00:29:02.759 --> 00:29:04.319 to the loudness that they want. All right, so we talked about that. 436 00:29:04.319 --> 00:29:07.240 We talked about this. It does have a full size memory card, 437 00:29:07.279 --> 00:29:11.119 which is different than some other interfaces. So that's definitely one of my favorite 438 00:29:11.160 --> 00:29:15.799 parts about it. The roadcaster pro has a micro memory card or whatever SD 439 00:29:15.920 --> 00:29:18.880 car and I almost lose it. Jump over here really quickly. You can 440 00:29:18.920 --> 00:29:23.559 see this is the power button. All the way I sho had a little 441 00:29:23.559 --> 00:29:26.440 thing, but right there that looks like a little button. That is the 442 00:29:26.480 --> 00:29:30.359 power button. The next hole down, or the first hole down here, 443 00:29:30.440 --> 00:29:34.119 is where you plug in your phone. So you plug in your trrs and 444 00:29:34.160 --> 00:29:37.799 then, if you want to, I don't recommend it, but you can 445 00:29:37.839 --> 00:29:44.400 actually get an adapter and turn these two the imacomb holes, these two plugs 446 00:29:44.480 --> 00:29:48.519 or two end puts into a Bluetooth transmitter adapter. Now Le's talk about how 447 00:29:48.519 --> 00:29:52.880 do you power this thing? First for first s up, you can see 448 00:29:52.920 --> 00:29:56.599 here that you can power it with two two batteries to double a batteries. 449 00:29:56.839 --> 00:30:00.599 This is pretty cool. No one likes double a batteries, though, like, 450 00:30:00.599 --> 00:30:03.480 are you kidding me? I don't want to carem around, I don't 451 00:30:03.640 --> 00:30:06.559 remember if they're going to go in or out or whatever. But then you 452 00:30:06.640 --> 00:30:11.960 jump over here and you can see that this has a DC five vault port, 453 00:30:11.039 --> 00:30:15.920 so you can plug that into a wall, you can plug it into 454 00:30:15.960 --> 00:30:19.960 your computer and power it, and then also you can plug this into a 455 00:30:21.039 --> 00:30:25.640 power bank, so you can literally power it four different ways, so from 456 00:30:25.680 --> 00:30:30.359 your computer once again, from a wall charger or a wall adapter, a 457 00:30:30.480 --> 00:30:34.680 power bank or those batteries. And if I'm not mistaken, if you have 458 00:30:34.799 --> 00:30:40.839 the power bank plugged in and you have double a batteries in there, in 459 00:30:40.920 --> 00:30:45.119 the power bank dies, it'll switch over to the double a batteries and it 460 00:30:45.119 --> 00:30:48.519 won't stop recording. I believe I'm saying that right. If I'm not, 461 00:30:48.640 --> 00:30:52.640 somebody correct me, but I'm pretty sure that's how that thing works. So 462 00:30:52.759 --> 00:30:56.480 anyway, that is the you know, one last look here that is the 463 00:30:56.519 --> 00:31:00.400 pot track pfour. Totally recommend this. So if you got like a pot 464 00:31:00.440 --> 00:31:06.920 treck Pfour and then you got like a sure sm fifty eight in an Xlrk, 465 00:31:07.039 --> 00:31:07.759 well I think you're crushing it. I think you, I mean, 466 00:31:07.759 --> 00:31:11.640 that would be you'd be totally happy with that. You know whatnot. But 467 00:31:11.839 --> 00:31:17.960 once again, if you wanted to level up even higher than you could always 468 00:31:18.000 --> 00:31:22.519 grab, you know, a next step up, which, let's see, 469 00:31:22.559 --> 00:31:23.920 what do I have up here? What I got listed? So I talked 470 00:31:23.920 --> 00:31:27.480 about the scarlet, talking about the pot track Pfour. I'll talk about the 471 00:31:27.519 --> 00:31:33.680 road caster, just because I have of one. This is not in this 472 00:31:33.759 --> 00:31:36.440 might be, you know, for some people who already maybe have a pod 473 00:31:36.480 --> 00:31:40.240 tract before or something and you want to level up a little bit with a 474 00:31:40.319 --> 00:31:44.519 road caster. So let me let me bring this up here. I actually, 475 00:31:44.519 --> 00:31:48.839 you know what, they get some pretty good deals on these. Let's 476 00:31:48.920 --> 00:31:51.920 see, where's one? I just want one with up all the stuff, 477 00:31:52.960 --> 00:31:56.119 all right. So you can see, here is the roadcaster. Now this 478 00:31:56.160 --> 00:32:00.640 thing, compared to the pod track, is way more powerful. I mean 479 00:32:00.640 --> 00:32:02.559 it's got a lot more and I can't go into it in this video or 480 00:32:02.599 --> 00:32:07.160 this live stream, but it has like a ton of settings on the inside. 481 00:32:07.200 --> 00:32:10.880 As far as you know, all your all your all your presets, 482 00:32:10.960 --> 00:32:15.440 and I'm trying to like toggle through it so I can actually talk about it 483 00:32:15.519 --> 00:32:19.640 like I'm a pro. But it has like multitrack, yes, all kinds 484 00:32:19.640 --> 00:32:23.920 of processing, has mixed. It has like an effects mode, like, 485 00:32:24.000 --> 00:32:27.759 it has a ton of like. When I say a ton of stuff, 486 00:32:27.759 --> 00:32:31.240 there's a group in clubhouse on Tuesday nights that it's literally a road caster pro 487 00:32:31.279 --> 00:32:36.160 group and they just help people with this, and so they've helped me a 488 00:32:36.240 --> 00:32:39.200 ton. And it is for channel. Let's get USB. It's got your 489 00:32:39.200 --> 00:32:44.960 smartphone, your Bluetooth, it's got compressors, it's got everything that you can 490 00:32:45.000 --> 00:32:51.519 possibly think of. A couple of like I don't think it has like effects. 491 00:32:51.559 --> 00:32:53.400 I can't remember, and maybe it's not stereo. So some people lose 492 00:32:53.400 --> 00:32:58.599 their mind about that. But once again, it is a for channel mixer 493 00:32:58.720 --> 00:33:04.119 as well. You can see here it's got your for you xlr channels. 494 00:33:04.119 --> 00:33:07.440 There we go USB and you have to turn on mix inside of here as 495 00:33:07.480 --> 00:33:10.759 well. Then it has your phone channel and I'll show you how to plug 496 00:33:10.839 --> 00:33:15.119 that up in a minute. And then it has bluetooth. Now Bluetooth. 497 00:33:15.799 --> 00:33:20.920 You know what, maybe if you're playing music through your computer into a Bluetooth 498 00:33:20.960 --> 00:33:27.480 Speaker, but I do not recommend bringing Bluetooth into here and anyway, or 499 00:33:27.480 --> 00:33:30.839 bringing your phone into their rather via Bluetooth anyhow. Then it has your slider 500 00:33:30.920 --> 00:33:35.200 here for your sound effects, and then you have all these banks and these 501 00:33:35.200 --> 00:33:37.519 are all different sound effects, so you can once again, you know, 502 00:33:37.559 --> 00:33:40.839 I got I got a bunch of them here that you can play music, 503 00:33:40.920 --> 00:33:45.359 like, I'll just play some music, you know whatever. So to get 504 00:33:45.359 --> 00:33:52.799 a little music and did a little little cricket action, little magical crickets, 505 00:33:53.119 --> 00:33:55.559 all those kind of fun things, and so these can be a lot of 506 00:33:55.599 --> 00:34:00.519 fun. Maybe a little distracting at times. Maybe that's spent a little too 507 00:34:00.640 --> 00:34:04.039 much time thinking about like, oh, what sound effects I want, but 508 00:34:04.119 --> 00:34:07.480 you and it has multiple banks within the software. So all this is like 509 00:34:07.519 --> 00:34:10.840 a digital interface. Anyway. If you're just starting out, probably don't need 510 00:34:10.920 --> 00:34:15.519 this right off the bat, unless you're just like super serious and you're like 511 00:34:15.639 --> 00:34:19.719 I want to produce just a solid, you know, radio show style, 512 00:34:20.039 --> 00:34:22.159 you know, show stingers and all that stuff. I would definitely recommend this. 513 00:34:23.280 --> 00:34:27.760 And then we'll jump to the back real quick. Let's talk about one 514 00:34:27.760 --> 00:34:31.480 more thing. On the front headphones. So there's all your fur headphone controls 515 00:34:31.480 --> 00:34:36.239 and then you have a main output control as well. Now'll jump to the 516 00:34:36.239 --> 00:34:38.199 back of really quick. That's the underneath. Let's jump to the back your 517 00:34:38.239 --> 00:34:43.840 power button. You do have this cool power I don't know what it's called, 518 00:34:43.880 --> 00:34:45.960 I don't know the technical term, but you plug it in and you 519 00:34:45.960 --> 00:34:47.039 can screw it on. So it's not going to come off. So if 520 00:34:47.079 --> 00:34:51.280 your kid runs by and pulls on the cable, it's not coming off of 521 00:34:51.320 --> 00:34:54.480 there. Maybe a road caster comes off the table, but your cable will 522 00:34:54.519 --> 00:34:58.719 not come out. And then also they make it a little adapter where you 523 00:34:58.719 --> 00:35:00.239 can plug it in. I think it's like twenty bucks. Can Plug it 524 00:35:00.280 --> 00:35:07.039 in to a power bank with that adapter and then your us be here, 525 00:35:07.079 --> 00:35:12.360 and then MICROSD, which I'm not a big fan of. Then your left 526 00:35:12.360 --> 00:35:15.079 and right outputs, your for headphone outputs, and then that phone is where 527 00:35:15.119 --> 00:35:19.639 you plug your trrs cable. And for some people who don't know what I'm 528 00:35:19.679 --> 00:35:24.039 talking about, and let me let me bring it up here and show you. 529 00:35:24.239 --> 00:35:30.559 Basically it's just a three point five millimeter cable. Is it going to 530 00:35:30.599 --> 00:35:34.559 focus. Three point five millimeter table with three rings around it. Now that 531 00:35:34.599 --> 00:35:37.400 looks the same on both sides, and this is just my little iphone adapter 532 00:35:37.079 --> 00:35:42.039 and needs all three rings because you got your left right audio and your microphone 533 00:35:42.079 --> 00:35:44.840 and then use plug in your adapter, plug it into your iphone, if 534 00:35:44.840 --> 00:35:47.480 that's what you use, and plug the other side, that looks just like 535 00:35:47.519 --> 00:35:52.920 that side, into your road caster or the pod track before, which I 536 00:35:52.960 --> 00:35:55.800 just showed you. So that is a way you can do you can do 537 00:35:55.880 --> 00:36:01.239 that as well. So yeah, super souper cool device here once again, 538 00:36:01.239 --> 00:36:05.920 I bought it when I was, you know, later on after I've been 539 00:36:05.920 --> 00:36:08.480 podcasting for a little bit and had a studio. And then there's your for 540 00:36:08.840 --> 00:36:14.320 locking xcelr inputs. So yeah, pretty cool. It does think up a 541 00:36:14.320 --> 00:36:15.719 bit of real estate, I would say it. You know, if I 542 00:36:15.760 --> 00:36:21.280 had it on my desk, if I had on my desk just regular in 543 00:36:21.280 --> 00:36:23.400 point, I think I'm like good third of my desk. Okay, so 544 00:36:23.440 --> 00:36:27.440 it's not the smallest thing. The podcheck before takes up a little bit more 545 00:36:27.440 --> 00:36:31.119 space in my iphone does. But yeah, pretty cool. Pretty cool device. 546 00:36:31.239 --> 00:36:36.559 If you're like really looking too and go to the next level. That's 547 00:36:36.559 --> 00:36:38.039 what I would recommend, or if you, you know, want to do 548 00:36:38.079 --> 00:36:42.719 it like a studio or something of that nature. It's a pretty cool it's 549 00:36:42.760 --> 00:36:45.840 pretty cool all right. And then there's the task can mix cast for. 550 00:36:46.119 --> 00:36:51.280 I don't know that much about it. It's just all my list to briefly 551 00:36:51.360 --> 00:36:55.039 mention. Now. Now you got your microphone, so maybe you get your 552 00:36:55.119 --> 00:37:00.719 USB microphone, maybe get your x Al our microphone if you have it. 553 00:37:00.800 --> 00:37:04.880 If you have this microphone, the seven be, you're going to need a 554 00:37:04.920 --> 00:37:09.840 little additional power and so on those inputs or those interfaces. I talked about 555 00:37:09.840 --> 00:37:15.480 Phantom power and it's like forty a volt or whatever. For the seven be 556 00:37:15.960 --> 00:37:21.880 you need a fathead or a cloudlifter or dynamite stick or whatever they call them, 557 00:37:21.920 --> 00:37:24.800 and it's basically just, you know, a little device that will will 558 00:37:24.840 --> 00:37:30.360 power your microphone and give a little warm juice so so you're not drink and 559 00:37:30.440 --> 00:37:32.840 all your gain and all your volume on your board. So that's what you 560 00:37:34.559 --> 00:37:38.039 that's probably what you need. Let's see. Nie says that's why you don't 561 00:37:38.039 --> 00:37:43.079 get your road cast on your desk. I mean, where else you going 562 00:37:43.119 --> 00:37:46.440 to put it? Like you want to reach it right or what? Knee 563 00:37:46.480 --> 00:37:50.760 probably hasn't mounted on his wall or he's got it lifted up on some kind 564 00:37:50.760 --> 00:37:52.760 of crane or something. He's all kind of techy over there. So, 565 00:37:53.800 --> 00:37:57.239 knee, I would love to see what you set up. Maybe that's an 566 00:37:57.239 --> 00:38:00.800 instagram post for you today. There you go. Challenge accepted. All right, 567 00:38:00.800 --> 00:38:01.920 now let's talk about that. You know. So if you so, 568 00:38:01.960 --> 00:38:05.760 once again, if you need some power for your microphone, I recommend a 569 00:38:05.800 --> 00:38:08.880 fathead. They're about eighty nine bucks. So, but then a cloud lifters 570 00:38:08.920 --> 00:38:12.159 like a hundred, fifty, two hundred, depends on which one you get 571 00:38:12.239 --> 00:38:15.239 to. Fifty maybe so so anyway. But now the next thing you want 572 00:38:15.239 --> 00:38:21.119 to think about. So you got your USB microphone, you know, you 573 00:38:21.119 --> 00:38:23.360 get your excel our microphone or whatever. You get your interface, if you 574 00:38:23.400 --> 00:38:29.519 need that Combo. Now you want to get this microphone, in my opinion, 575 00:38:29.559 --> 00:38:31.400 off of your desk. Okay, so you want to mount it on 576 00:38:31.480 --> 00:38:35.920 into something. You don't want to be holding it. So if I'm holding 577 00:38:36.000 --> 00:38:38.320 this and once again, probably just bad presentation here, I should have pluged 578 00:38:38.320 --> 00:38:43.280 it in, I'll get all kinds of hand noise. And then maybe if 579 00:38:43.280 --> 00:38:45.880 I'm talking and I have a Joe Rogan style podcast where I'm talking for three 580 00:38:45.920 --> 00:38:52.039 hours holding the microphone like this, sitting across the table from somebody and having 581 00:38:52.079 --> 00:38:54.000 them do the same. You know it's not going to work, or sitting, 582 00:38:54.000 --> 00:38:58.679 you know, on a zoom call holding your mic and it's getting all 583 00:38:58.760 --> 00:39:01.320 kinds of hand noise, you're getting fatigued, arm fatigue, all this stuff. 584 00:39:01.679 --> 00:39:06.000 Just get something to mount it on to. So let me show you 585 00:39:06.840 --> 00:39:12.320 what I use. And my friend John to spins has has really turned me 586 00:39:12.360 --> 00:39:15.800 onto this and this one I'm using right now. So it's called the I 587 00:39:15.800 --> 00:39:20.880 think it's called the mountain boom arm. Let me jump over here and show 588 00:39:20.880 --> 00:39:25.559 it to you. Similar to the Blue Compass. You know that that blue 589 00:39:25.599 --> 00:39:29.519 that Yetti makes, or that same company Blue Compass makes, I guess, 590 00:39:29.639 --> 00:39:35.039 is what it's called. This thing's like sixty nine bucks. You know, 591 00:39:35.119 --> 00:39:37.320 I was at at first like ill, man, I don't want to pay 592 00:39:37.320 --> 00:39:39.239 seventy for a boom arm, but I've had all kinds of my I've had 593 00:39:39.280 --> 00:39:44.920 the cheap twenty ones, I've had, you know, the fifty to I 594 00:39:44.960 --> 00:39:47.960 mean even fifty bucks. By bought this thing. It's pretty good there. 595 00:39:49.000 --> 00:39:52.679 You know, this doesn't have like a lot of adjustments, and I'll show 596 00:39:52.719 --> 00:39:55.119 you one that does. But for the price, it does a good job. 597 00:39:55.159 --> 00:40:00.920 It holds up my microphone. It holds up a a road pod mic 598 00:40:00.960 --> 00:40:05.920 which weighs about two pounds. It will hold that up fairly well, really 599 00:40:05.920 --> 00:40:09.440 well actually. And and also, when you're looking at these boom arms, 600 00:40:09.719 --> 00:40:15.599 you want to look at how they are mounted. So if you Chang this 601 00:40:15.639 --> 00:40:20.800 one out down here at the bottom, it's mounted where the arm in the 602 00:40:20.840 --> 00:40:23.920 way, is on the inside of the table, not on the outside of 603 00:40:23.960 --> 00:40:28.440 the table. Now I have a couple other ones here on my desk that 604 00:40:28.519 --> 00:40:31.280 are mounted on the out side and it's just putting all the weight to the 605 00:40:31.280 --> 00:40:35.719 outside of the table. So you know, you know, it's like just 606 00:40:35.760 --> 00:40:37.960 putting where. It's like a weird I don't even know how to explain it, 607 00:40:37.000 --> 00:40:39.960 but it's like a weird pressure that like, why did somebody do this? 608 00:40:40.840 --> 00:40:45.559 So make sure that all of this weight is clipped inside of the table 609 00:40:45.639 --> 00:40:49.400 and it's actually on the table versus off the side of the table. If 610 00:40:49.400 --> 00:40:52.719 that makes sense. Maybe I could show you one that is off the table. 611 00:40:52.800 --> 00:40:55.920 Let me look. Let me look as if I can find one. 612 00:40:57.920 --> 00:41:00.800 Okay, yeah, well, let's se where to go. Where you go, 613 00:41:00.880 --> 00:41:05.079 perfect example, what you don't want. You don't want this hanging off 614 00:41:05.079 --> 00:41:07.400 the side of your table. You don't want your microphone hanging off the side 615 00:41:07.400 --> 00:41:10.360 of your table. You want it to be pushed over your table. So 616 00:41:10.400 --> 00:41:14.840 now let's look and see if we can find like a road boom arm. 617 00:41:14.840 --> 00:41:19.039 And now this thing is going to be things can be pretty heavy tow this 618 00:41:19.079 --> 00:41:22.199 is a hundred bucks. This isn't bad actually. I'd probably buy this one 619 00:41:22.320 --> 00:41:28.599 the PSA one over, if it was available. It looks like it is. 620 00:41:28.639 --> 00:41:31.199 I would probably buy this one over the one I just mentioned. There's 621 00:41:31.199 --> 00:41:34.599 some pros and cons about it. You can check it out, you know, 622 00:41:34.639 --> 00:41:39.199 on Youtube or go to Amazon and watch somebody's live video. But I 623 00:41:39.199 --> 00:41:44.920 think some people get their fingers pinched in here between those two things. But 624 00:41:45.000 --> 00:41:47.239 it does have this adjustable head to hear that I really do like a probably 625 00:41:47.320 --> 00:41:50.920 end up picking it up. A couple of these and some of them you 626 00:41:50.960 --> 00:41:52.719 can even mount like this. You can just mount it, cut a hole 627 00:41:52.760 --> 00:41:55.599 in your desk, if you have like a wooden desk or whatever, and 628 00:41:55.800 --> 00:42:00.000 in Mount it there where if you want to, on your desk for more 629 00:42:00.000 --> 00:42:04.039 of a permanent, you know, situation a right. So, so that's 630 00:42:04.039 --> 00:42:07.280 the one that they have a new one, a new PSA want. I 631 00:42:07.320 --> 00:42:08.440 think it's a pee. I don't if it's a PSA to. Oh, 632 00:42:08.559 --> 00:42:14.840 got here it is. I'm going to take a quick little swig of coffee 633 00:42:14.880 --> 00:42:22.960 before I rant about this. All right. So now that almost built coffee 634 00:42:22.039 --> 00:42:29.719 all over my stuff. This is the road. PSA One plus and and 635 00:42:29.800 --> 00:42:32.480 I was going to get this microphone, boom arm, because I watched a 636 00:42:32.559 --> 00:42:36.480 video on it from Tom Buck and I really liked it. It was awesome. 637 00:42:36.519 --> 00:42:42.199 It's great. But why in the world these put your ginormous logo on 638 00:42:42.280 --> 00:42:45.480 here, like three, four times in noise the heck out of me? 639 00:42:45.519 --> 00:42:50.360 I can't I'm like, Dude, I don't want your branding all over my 640 00:42:50.400 --> 00:42:54.599 face, just like that picture, right. They're like uh, anyway, 641 00:42:54.960 --> 00:42:58.719 I'm not going to rant about it, but those are like cloth covers to 642 00:42:58.760 --> 00:43:01.559 maybe keep you from pinching yourself or whatever, and they get those little plastic, 643 00:43:01.840 --> 00:43:06.519 you know, daptors there. I don't know, I don't know, 644 00:43:06.760 --> 00:43:08.000 I don't know. I'm not going to rant about it. I've rented about 645 00:43:08.039 --> 00:43:12.199 it enough. But Anyway, so I would definitely recommend getting some type of 646 00:43:12.239 --> 00:43:15.559 a boom arm to hook your microphone onto and it keeps it off the table. 647 00:43:15.599 --> 00:43:19.920 It's going to keep it less from getting banged up or being real close 648 00:43:19.960 --> 00:43:22.159 to your hands where, you know, like if you're hitting your tables, 649 00:43:22.199 --> 00:43:25.480 if I hit my table hard enough, you're going to hear it, and 650 00:43:25.519 --> 00:43:29.800 that's just you know, it's just practice of like using a microphone and go 651 00:43:30.000 --> 00:43:31.360 I can listen to your audio and like what is that booming noise, and 652 00:43:31.360 --> 00:43:34.960 then you realize, like, you get into it, you smash your hands 653 00:43:35.119 --> 00:43:38.400 like, you know, like you're like your donkey gong, like throwing barrels 654 00:43:38.480 --> 00:43:42.360 or something into the table. So you don't want to do that. All 655 00:43:42.440 --> 00:43:44.800 right, so think about that. Think about getting you you know, this 656 00:43:44.840 --> 00:43:49.280 could be an easy way to get a USB microphone, get a boom arm, 657 00:43:49.320 --> 00:43:52.480 get it off the table for the most part and get out of the 658 00:43:52.480 --> 00:43:55.519 middle of your table where you're more than likely to hit your hands. Okay, 659 00:43:55.599 --> 00:43:59.280 so there we go. So we talked about microphones, we talked about 660 00:43:59.320 --> 00:44:02.280 interfaces, we've talked about boom arms. Now let's get to the most important 661 00:44:02.280 --> 00:44:07.840 part of audio, and this are going to be your headphones. Okay, 662 00:44:07.840 --> 00:44:12.800 this is the most important thing. If you do nothing at all, if 663 00:44:12.840 --> 00:44:15.320 you don't buy a microphone, if you don't buy a boom arm, if 664 00:44:15.360 --> 00:44:21.599 you don't buy anything, I want you to get some headphones. If you 665 00:44:21.599 --> 00:44:27.000 want to be a guest on somebody's show, get some stinking headphones. I 666 00:44:27.039 --> 00:44:30.400 can't tell you how many people will come on to a show that I'm hosting, 667 00:44:30.440 --> 00:44:36.960 your cohosting or producing your whatever, and they just don't have headphones and 668 00:44:37.039 --> 00:44:42.320 I literally just don't understand it. It's like it. What's going to do? 669 00:44:42.440 --> 00:44:45.280 Is going to prevent all this looping back? It's going to prevent all 670 00:44:45.360 --> 00:44:50.559 this stuff that's just like you know. Like you know, for instance, 671 00:44:50.559 --> 00:44:52.400 like if I'm if I'm on this side of the microphone and I don't have 672 00:44:52.440 --> 00:44:58.639 headphones and I don't have any way to sound isolate, your voice is going 673 00:44:58.679 --> 00:45:01.760 to come through my computer, it's going to go back out of my out 674 00:45:01.760 --> 00:45:07.679 of my speakers, back into the microphone and causing a feedback for you. 675 00:45:08.119 --> 00:45:13.039 And you probably heard this on zoom calls. You've probably heard this on interviews 676 00:45:13.079 --> 00:45:16.000 and live shows. If you've listened to a particular podcast that I cohost, 677 00:45:16.159 --> 00:45:20.760 I know you've heard it, because people just don't have headphones. But if 678 00:45:20.760 --> 00:45:23.400 you want to show up, this is a way that you can show up 679 00:45:23.559 --> 00:45:28.400 really simple purchase. Now you don't have to spend a million bucks on headphones. 680 00:45:28.639 --> 00:45:30.440 I'm going to talk about these because I've been wearing them for a while 681 00:45:30.480 --> 00:45:34.280 and I like them. You can do over the ears, you can do 682 00:45:34.320 --> 00:45:37.920 in ears like this, you can do the cheap ones. You just put 683 00:45:37.920 --> 00:45:42.000 on your stinking earbud like it cost five bucks. I just do something to 684 00:45:42.079 --> 00:45:45.559 keep that sound from looping back and forth. So let's jump over to the 685 00:45:45.559 --> 00:45:51.039 ones that I have. These are the sure set fifteen pros and these are 686 00:45:51.119 --> 00:45:54.840 sound isolating earphones, and I got the black ones for whatever reason. I 687 00:45:54.840 --> 00:45:58.159 don't really know why I did that. I should have got the clear ones, 688 00:45:58.199 --> 00:46:00.280 because the clear ones you can like not even see them. I'm actually 689 00:46:00.360 --> 00:46:05.199 pretty confused sometimes when I get a live streamer on, I'm like he did, 690 00:46:05.199 --> 00:46:07.760 where's your headphones? Or call right here. My God, okay, 691 00:46:07.840 --> 00:46:09.599 I didn't see that. These are super dope. Become with a lot of 692 00:46:09.599 --> 00:46:15.639 fun products, a little earbuds adjustments. It did take me a while to 693 00:46:15.639 --> 00:46:20.480 get used to the it did take me a want to get used to them 694 00:46:20.599 --> 00:46:23.199 being in my ears and if I'm smiling a lot or laughing a lot and 695 00:46:23.199 --> 00:46:25.599 it's like, you know, move my ears around, like there might be 696 00:46:25.639 --> 00:46:30.760 a little uncomfortable after a while. But I've literally worn these probably for three 697 00:46:30.800 --> 00:46:35.679 or four months, I think, for hours every day. I've listened to 698 00:46:35.800 --> 00:46:38.440 music in them, I've done these types of things and the every day you 699 00:46:38.480 --> 00:46:42.960 guys see me wearing them. Really Great. For the price, you know, 700 00:46:43.079 --> 00:46:46.639 Ninety nine bucks. Super, super great. I love them and you 701 00:46:46.639 --> 00:46:51.639 don't have to get there's like can't remember the brand, but my wife used 702 00:46:51.639 --> 00:46:54.119 to have some because she plays music and so where she played music at that 703 00:46:54.199 --> 00:46:59.800 had in her system and she had like this cheap twenty dollar pair and they 704 00:46:59.800 --> 00:47:02.119 were awesome. So you could try a couple pair out. Whatever. I 705 00:47:02.159 --> 00:47:06.440 mean. I just went into sure ones because I heard so many good things 706 00:47:06.440 --> 00:47:10.119 about them. So that is it. That is that is basically you know 707 00:47:10.400 --> 00:47:15.719 how you can level up your live stream or your podcasts, or maybe you 708 00:47:15.920 --> 00:47:20.639 are an author or a speaker or a public speaker. Maybe you maybe you 709 00:47:20.719 --> 00:47:23.079 just haven't done anything yet. Maybe you were just like I have a message, 710 00:47:23.159 --> 00:47:27.599 I want to share it. This is a really easy way for you 711 00:47:27.679 --> 00:47:31.000 to get started as a content creator. In a lot of people will get 712 00:47:31.079 --> 00:47:36.039 hung up on the tech in the tech doesn't have to be hard. Get 713 00:47:36.119 --> 00:47:39.639 You a Bluetooth Microphone and Are Not Bluetooth Microphone. Don't do that. Don't 714 00:47:39.719 --> 00:47:44.400 get a Bluetooth microphone. Okay, get you a USB microphone, pluget in 715 00:47:44.440 --> 00:47:47.119 your computer and go wild and just record whatever you want to. More than 716 00:47:47.159 --> 00:47:52.639 likely have a recording device or recording software on your computer. Start Recording, 717 00:47:52.679 --> 00:47:57.760 show up on zoom calls, better, more professional show up and, you 718 00:47:57.800 --> 00:48:00.280 know, meetings, whatever it looks like for you. So that is that's 719 00:48:00.320 --> 00:48:06.880 it. This is how to level up your audio or cheap and awesome. 720 00:48:06.920 --> 00:48:10.119 So Nie says in the chat that that the inner microphones are cheaper. Headphones 721 00:48:10.159 --> 00:48:15.159 are cheap and awesome, and I agree. They're really not that expensive. 722 00:48:15.559 --> 00:48:17.239 You know, once again, these had took me a while to get used 723 00:48:17.280 --> 00:48:21.480 to. It's kind of like you put a ring on your finger or necklace 724 00:48:21.599 --> 00:48:23.000 or something and it's just kind of like, what is that? What's touching 725 00:48:23.039 --> 00:48:27.559 me? It does take a little bit to get used to there. So 726 00:48:28.039 --> 00:48:31.159 really appreciate everybody jumping in joining on all the different platforms that we're on. 727 00:48:31.639 --> 00:48:35.719 Feel free to to, you know, leave us a message, leave us 728 00:48:35.760 --> 00:48:39.360 a review.

We're 741 00:49:30.280 --> 00:49:31.800 working over there and we're getting ready to add some more stuff to this store. 742 00:49:31.840 --> 00:49:37.519 So hit that follow button over there on Amazon live as well. And 743 00:49:37.519 --> 00:49:44.880 and Nice says, to shop used markets. This is very I don't yeah, 744 00:49:44.960 --> 00:49:47.079 if you want to. I This Day and age, I'm not using 745 00:49:47.079 --> 00:49:52.079 anybody else's microphone. Definitely not headphones, like that gross me out. But 746 00:49:52.199 --> 00:49:58.119 yeah, like boom arms, stuff like that roadcaster pro project before. You 747 00:49:58.119 --> 00:50:01.079 can find this stuff on facebook. Market place is a good place to find 748 00:50:01.119 --> 00:50:06.920 it. Maybe Ebay might be a good place. Crept correct list. Is 749 00:50:06.960 --> 00:50:09.239 The craigslist still a thing? Is that still a thing? I don't know. 750 00:50:09.559 --> 00:50:14.400 Where's my cohost? I need a cohost to talk about craigslist. So 751 00:50:14.519 --> 00:50:16.199 I'm not really sure. But yeah, that's a good point. Need to 752 00:50:16.239 --> 00:50:20.599 shop those used markets because a lot of people got into podcasting in two thousand 753 00:50:20.599 --> 00:50:23.800 and twenty. A lot of people got into podcasting in two thousand and twenty 754 00:50:23.840 --> 00:50:27.719 and now a lot of people in two thousand and twenty two or not podcasting 755 00:50:27.719 --> 00:50:30.239 anymore. So more than likely they probably have some stuff laying around that they 756 00:50:30.239 --> 00:50:34.800 will hawk your way for a little bit of nothing. So that is a 757 00:50:34.880 --> 00:50:38.400 very good, very good strategy there. So hopefully this is brought some value 758 00:50:38.440 --> 00:50:40.760 to you. If it has.
