u/TuFFrabit · 7 pointsr/HuntShowdown

Ok, so you need a mic as well. Alrighty. I'm going to suggest you go a different route than pretty much what everybody else is suggesting. I personally dislike the all in one headsets, especially if they're marketed as "gaming", double especially if they are 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.

If your priority is actually hearing things in game, and determining direction and such, you are better served with a stereo set that emphasizes the mid range and high end frequencies while de-emphasizing the low end. Low end boosting is an inexpensive way for manufacturers to make a cheap set of cans "sound" expensive, and while it can make movies and some music sound great it's not amazing for gaming.

Here we go with a 100 budget. I'm going to give you a buying list for a standalone set of headphones paired with a separate mic setup:

u/JohannesVerne · 7 pointsr/VoiceActing

As u/Brocomic said, the sidebar has links to a lot of great resources, so check out the links there and read up more on what being a voice artist actually entails before deciding on a course of action.

​

Start with practice. There is a lot more to voice acting than just having a good voice; it's being able to have a controlled and nuanced use of your voice. No matter how sexy your voice is, it won't do any good if you don't know how to act.

If you have the money, acting classes at your local college can be a good place to start, and a voice coach will help you grow your talent by leaps and bounds if you can afford one. That being said, not everyone can cover the cost of professional training, but there are some other options as well. I would suggest looking into a community theater, as you can get some training there, but you will get experience and be around actors that you can talk to about how to improve. Again, this isn't the only way to go, just an option.

If you have the money for gear, make sure you get a quality setup with an XLR microphone. You aren't going to want to spend hundreds of dollars here, as you may find out later that VO just isn't where your interests or talents are, but for around $100-$125 you can get a full setup of mic, interface, stand, pop filter, and XLR cable that will give you a good enough sound to get started. Don't go out and buy a usb mic, as they aren't going to give you a professional sound. In the end though, I would still advise holding off on buying any gear until you have some training, and know that VO is what you want to do and something you will be comfortable with as a career. (The gear I linked certainly isn't the only stuff out there, just what I personally consider the minimum for a professional sound, and doesn't include acoustic treatment which will be needed no mater what setup you get)

​

As for vocal style, there are a lot of romance novels that are up to be turned into audiobooks on ACX, and if you do have a sexy voice that might be something to consider. Audiobook narration is a pretty time consuming process, and the pay isn't always great, but it is another facet of the VO world you may not have considered yet. I would also suggest practicing to expand your vocal range and style. While one good voice can land you some work, being able to adapt to more situations and needs will open up a lot of doors for you once you start to get established.

​

So in the end, all of that boils down to practice. However you go about getting into VO, you will need to practice constantly, look for feedback from professionals (not friends and family, they will be biased at best, likely uninterested, and often actually give bad advice), and try to get some training or coaching. Learn how to use your voice, and just keep practicing.

u/seriously_stretching · 2 pointsr/audioengineering

Attempting to build a system that will allow us to have in ear monitors for when we go live, as well as in our "studio", however I'm not sure if this will work together or not and I don't want to invest in something that won't work, or is garbage.

Can someone let me know if this will do what I expect, and won't suck? :)

Currently I have a 4 channel mixer plugged into some PA speakers and a Scarlett 2i2 to plug things into my PC.

What that really means is, I have two mics plugged into the PA speakers as well as going to the Scarlett with the rest of everything going through amps and just the drums themselves.

We are a 4 piece band with drums, guitar, bass, and vocals.

Currently with our setup, we can record everything through a mic I have setup in the practice space but it's less than ideal to set levels and actually have any sort of decent sound.

If we want to record things separately then I can just plug whatever we want to record (aside from drums) into the Scarlett and call it good.

However we'd like to have everything go through a central source, and be able to hear that central source play back to us through some IEMs while we play. We would also all like to have our own mixes, and have the mixes be stereo

I'd love suggestions/feedback on my proposed setup and would like to know if what I'm thinking of would even be feasible.

The proposed setup - Cables aren't necessarily a specific brand but the length/type:

1x Behringer XR18 Mixer

1x P16-M

4x Galaxy Audio AS-1100

1x Pyle Pro Drum Mic Kit or some other simple drum mic kit

1x Kick Drum Mic Stand

2x Overhead Mic Stand

6x Short(ish) XLR Cables

2x XLR to 1/4 Cables

How I'm seeing everything plug together is:
Into XR18

  • Vocal mics
  • Guitar amp output
  • Bass amp output
  • Drum mic kit

    Out of XR18

  • Channels 1-2 -> Galaxy Audio
  • Channels 3-4 -> Galaxy Audio
  • Channels 5-6 -> Galaxy Audio
  • Main L/R -> PA Speakers
  • Ethernet Port -> P16-M -> Galaxy Audio
  • USB Port -> PC -> Recording

    To me this seems like it SHOULD all work, but I'd like some other opinions on if it will work as I expect or not, or if I need/don't need components.

    Is anyone able to see anything that just looks inherintely BAD with the list of components I'm wanting to get? I know the wireless systems aren't great, but we don't want to spend a ton of money (at least right now) on some quality systems.

    For now this will all be free-standing but eventually I hope to build a case to house everything. Will all of the above be able to fit inside a case, or will I face any issues?

    What are some good cable brands I should go for or avoid?
u/Alkali-A · 1 pointr/audio

The two types of mic stands that would likely work best for you would be either a desk mounted boom arm, or tripod boom arm

The most popular I believe would be this one here from Neewer, which I have personally used and is quite nice (and comes with a pop filter as a bonus)

https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Microphone-Suspension-Mounting-Windscreen/dp/B01GRMF5ZE/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1520786135&sr=8-5&keywords=boom+arm

But if you willing to dish out a good bit more money Rode makes one that overall just tends to have a little more quality to it

https://www.amazon.com/RODE-Swivel-Mount-Studio-Microphone/dp/B001D7UYBO/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1520786135&sr=8-4&keywords=boom+arm

Alternatively, you could get a tripod boom arm, which doesn't require being attached to the desk but is a tiny bit more difficult to get situated in a better spot.

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Tripod-Boom-Microphone-Stand/dp/B019NY2PKG/ref=sr_1_3?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1520786232&sr=1-3&keywords=mic+stand

I might add though that none of these come with is called a shock mount, which is an anti-vibration mount that actually connects the mic to the stand

https://www.amazon.com/Mugig-Recording-Broadcasting-Suspension-Microphone/dp/B078Z75C8W/ref=sr_1_3?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1520786604&sr=1-3&keywords=mic+shock+mount

This one will work, and on the upside also comes with a slightly different kind of pop filter if you wanted to try something a little different, or if the stand you choose doesn't come with one.

For keyboards, the smaller in size you go often the cheaper the keyboards become.

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5c/40/ab/5c40abb3225a2d4dbcfcbffbf547e094.jpg

Corsair keyboard are some of my favorite pre-built keyboards because their new CUE 2 software lets you program any key you want and have as many key profiles as you want, so if you get a smaller size keyboard you can always program in the extra keys you may have lost.

to which end this keyboard is likely one of the cheapest ones I can find right now.

https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Mechanical-Keyboard-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B00S9AAKA8/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1520787827&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=corsair+keyboard&psc=1

Alternatively, there are a good number of budget options listed here on this buying guide on r/mechanicalkeyboards

https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/wiki/buying_guide

As for mousepads, you can just search "extended mousepad" or "full desk mousepad" and you'll get a good number of options.
A few companies I know that make quality ones are Corsair again, reflex labs, ankor, steelseries, and glorious pc gaming race

The last mention there from what I've heard seems to be the highest quality overall, though personally, I use this pad here as it's got a little more height to it

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072BQH7R8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Once again, I'd be glad to help with any further questions or anything!

u/NoodleFM · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Nor I, but I had the Xenyx302 which was the worse purchase I've ever made. If you can afford it, the scarlett solo + 2020 is better, but since you can't, the Blue Yeti or 2020 USB would probably be best for you. Honestly, just starting out, that is more than good enough. I've seen full-time streamers still using their yeti or other USB mic, of course it's not as good as an XLR but there's nothing wrong with them.

Also that stand is pretty good, I use it personally, but being $15 they break easily. The only other real option at that price is just a boom stand.

That all should be more than good enough to start streaming.

u/TheGoreyDetails · 3 pointsr/asmr

hi there!

i wanna start off by saying i had not idea what subreddit this was when i read the comments.
Just saw the keywords about the yeti and sound issues and dug deeper.
It could have been from r/youtube or r/twitch for all i knew.
I listened to you clip and it game me asmr tingles!
haha. it was after that i decided to see what sub i was in.

so as an asmr fan, you might just be being critical of yourself.
I've seen a lot of users here and on youtube say they prefer a more natural sound with the room tone included vs the unnatural silence between words.


that being said, i too have a yeti and could possibly offer some insight. chances are you've read or hear this eles where too.

the yeti is stupid sensitive.
when i first got it, i had my headphones and and was listening to things with the gain all way up.
i could hear my girlfriend come home, and put he keys into the door like the thing was on a megaphone.

so having your gain to about halfway is good. i keep mine there where i stream on twitch. if i put it all the way up, youll hear cars drive by and thats too much for me in that instance.


if you do wanna go for the more quite feel, on thing you can try is the "noise reduction" effect in audacity. (your post mentioend a "white noise reduction", but im not sure thats what youre talking about

i use that effect often, and haven't had issues.
so if we are talking about the same effect, you'll have to let me know your process.


on thing you can do with audacity (and other software like OBS studio) is setup a noise gate. this basically means if the sounds aren't within a certain db threshold, it wont come through.
tutorial here.


how you have your yeti placed can make a difference too.
so for example, if it's just sitting on your desk, it might pick up more noise from you interacting with things on the desk (of the desk itself) as opposed to the yeti being attached to one of those mic arms. a wind screen and pop filter could help too.
You might need an adapter to get the yeti to attach the yeti to the arm, so do your homework.

last thing I can think of is your space.
this guy has a good video about making your space nice for cheap.
noise panels help too if youre trying to spend some cash.


hopefully this helps.

u/mooninitespwnj00 · 2 pointsr/podcasting

It would... work. But not well. Remember that you're working with a pure-audio medium, so sounding good is almost as important as having good content. If you have to use this setup, here are a few issues you'll run into-

  • Ambient sound- imnidirectional mode will pick up a little of everything. Literally. Echo? Done. Noise from outside? Yup. Literally everything but what your listeners are there for? Possibly.

  • Lack of depth- to get that rich vocal range, you gotta be at the right distance from the right mic. You will have neither with this rig.

  • So much editing- considering that you're likely going to be using Audacity (nothing wrong with that at all), you'll have so much editing to do, and with no idea of what the mic is picking up (see below) to prepare you. Audacity is not the best for really mixing down audio, so you'll be putting a lot of responsibility on a program that isn't the best choice for it

  • No zero-latency monitoring- this is actually huge. You'll either be plugged into the computer while your brain tries to be in the present while also listening on a lag (ugh) or you'll be flying blind (double ugh) since you can't just throw on some cans and monitor in real time. This doesn't seem important, but it super is. Being able to hear what the mic hears with no lag is a game changer.


    Here's what I'd recommend instead:

    Behringer XM1800s 3-pack - the products most often purchased together will run you about $55 (less than a Blue Snowball), and includes a 5-pack of windscreens, and 1 10-foot XLR cable. Personally I would replace that with 2 of the 6-foot versions- I use that exact cable with an AT2020 and for the price it's excellent. By shopping for a good deal you can spend less- buying used or on sale or even from a fellow podcaster who has moved up to more serious gear can help you out there.

    To get those sweet vocal tones from the mic to the computer, you'll need an interface. I use an Audio Technica AT2020 run through a Scarlet Solo, but it's just me, and their 2-mic version is excessive for what it brings to the table. Consider the Behringer Xenyx Q802USB interface. The mixer.controls will help you dial in your audio, reducing editing time/effort and reliance on Audacity.

    Now, I'm well aware that that is basically double the budget that you have in mind. I don't enjoy giving you that news, but- and this is important- spending ~$130 isn't that big a deal over the long term, and if you wind up taking this more seriously it will give you a massive advantage right out of the gate, and will make the process of recording so much easier, leaving you more time and energy to focus on content and enjoying the process. Because, let's be honest, that's what you start a podcast for; enjoyment. With the mics I recommended, a mic stand isn't crucial right out of the gate, but even if you really just want stands, getting a cheap boom or scissor is totally doable for $30 or less.

Condenser mics are good for picking up a lot of people, but they also create a lot of background noise too. I used a condenser for 2 years, we JUST made the switch. Now i use 4 dynamic mics, via an xlr to USB interface. We record in adobe audition. Even if you dont record in it, i recommend learning it and running your audio through it for post editing. ill link all my useful stuff and equipment. These will all be amazon links.

The Mics

Good Mic Stands for cheap

interface

if you go through the trouble of learning audition this is helpful. This is the algorithm the Game Grumps use, i cannot state enough what an amazingly drastic quality difference this makes. it raises the lows, lowers the highs, evens it all out.

Dynamic Audio Processing Chart

​

I should mention that to record multiple mic inputs, you need either an additional sound card, or the ASIO4ALL driver (which hogs your soundcard making it so you cant hear your game, booo.) The alternate solution i went for is recording the audio on another PC.

​

If you're recording with lots of people, to avoid audio spillover (one person being picked up on another's mic) you want to record with each track at the near lowest possible Gain/Volume/Db, and raise it all later. this will make the mics only pick up the voice right in front of them. I usually also angle all the mics in a way that they face only their speaker, but not others. I can elaborate on this further if you like. Then i run it all thru the Dynamic Processing. I think that about covers the gist of it, sorry for how detailed it was lol. If anyone is curious, i can give good tips on creating thumbnails, info about how i make my art and music, how i edit my videos and general technique too, when i have time

u/The_iron_mill · 1 pointr/letsplay

Samson go mic? I used to have one of those ages ago... Decent for the price, as I remember. So. Here's my advice for multiplayer commentary at a budget of $250.

Mixer = $100

Mic x4 = $120. This is my go to mic and I love the sound it gets. Not suitable for live performances through a PA, but for lets plays it's awesome. This particular link includes XLR cords too.

These mics are also dynamic, so they should pick up considerably little of the game audio. I'd recommend picking up some boom stands, like these for about 20 bucks each.

As for headphones and such, I've used my microphones without headphones and it's picked up little to no game audio.

u/ggfools · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

as for headphones I'm not really sure what to recommend, as there are so many options and I'm not sure what your preferences are, but maybe take a look at the Sony MDR7506 (these are ~$75 USD, but can be had for less in the used market as they have been in production for like 20 years) and the Phillips shp9500 ($70-80, open back, great all-arounder)

for the mic this is a very good and inexpensive setup, as long as your PC has decent built in sound card (I use this exact setup and often get compliments on my mic quality, you can't beat it for ~$40 total)

Mic: Behringer Ultravoice XM8500

Mic Stand: Innogear Mic Stand

Mic Cable: 3.5mm to XLR cable

sorry my prices are in USD, not sure about the price difference in CAN

This is a great budget mic arm, then you could grab something like a Blue Snowball and a pop filter and you'd be good to go.

u/SureIllrecordthat · 1 pointr/microphones

Yes it should be, but you may need a super cheap adapter. The mic clip on the boom arm should have a small adapter that changes the threads on the boom arm to the threads on the mic clip. If, for some weird reason that adapter is not included, these are what you're looking for

But, most likely the mic clip that comes with the arm should have that adapter screwed into it.

You will need to take the corresponding part from the mic -- that ring looking part on the table stand on the mic package -- and remove the mic clip from the boom arm and replace it with the ring looking part. You will not use the mic clip that comes with the boom arm.

EDITED TO ADD: If you spent a few dollars more and went with the NEEWER NB-35, that will have a universal shock mount that should readily accept your mic, and will help insulate noise from when you touch the desk. I bet it would work better overall.

u/Weaston · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Get your mic off your desk and onto a boom stand. My cousin has a heavily modded silent board that sounds loud af when he uses his mic on his desk. Having the mic on the same surface as the board makes the mic pick up the extra reverberations through the table and make any and all boards sound loud af. Also make sure your mic is only on the front facing mode and not the pick up everything in every direction mode (I forget the official names, but that makes a difference too, and on the Blue mics it's just one button).

Here's a cheap boom stand: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Tripod-Boom-Microphone-Stand/dp/B019NY2PKG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1520622838&sr=8-3&keywords=boom+stand

Edit: Also that looks like a Razer board, potentially with clicky switches. If they're clicky then your solution is the above mic move as well as a board with literally any other switch but clickies.

u/GamersCreations · 1 pointr/Twitch

In the mean time I think its worth noting I also have these cheapo items for my Yeti, getting the mic off the desk where sound just reverb through the stand helps a ton, also getting it closer to you.

Both items worked for my setup straight out of the box, untill my gf eventually stretched the arm too far and broke the original cable, that was replaced by a cheapo 10ft usb cable :)

u/RC531976 · 1 pointr/audio

To use a good XLR condenser mic like the AT 2020 with an XLR input audio interface like the Behringer UMC 22, you don't need anything more than what you have listed.

However, you might want to investigate an "articulated arm" mic stand rather than the desk stand you listed. The articulated arm will make it MUCH easier to get the microphone in an optimal location rather than that traditional desk stand. For example: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01L3LL95O

Using a USB audio interface like that Behringer UMC 22 will likely want to take over both the audio inputs (microphone) and the audio outputs (headphones or speakers). So you can either connect your speakers (or headphones?) to the audio interface, or you may have to re-configure your computer to continue to use your present connections for audio output (headphones or speakers). You should have that flexibility with any kind of computer (Mac, Windows, Linux, etc., not revealed) but you may need to learn how to configure the audio inputs and outputs.

u/Ping1337 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Thank you so much for the advice.. I guess I should reveal a little more about my setup to get more help. I'll have my new monitor by tuesday. It's an ultrawide (AW3418DW) so I was relying on that to hide some cables in the back area.

Tomorrow I'll receive my custom PSU cables which I will attempt to make as nice as possible (front and back) so maybe I will have this pc flush with the desk instead of sideways if it comes out clean enough. I won't be using the monitor that I have right now because it was just a placeholder for the UW monitor that I've waited a month for.

I'm a little confused on where you where you suggested the UPS and modem can sit behind the alex drawers and have the cables routed from the pathway behind the desk? Also during this big project I created I ordered a cable management kit shown here as I don't know what I'll need and tbh i'm not sure how to use some of the stuff in the kit.

Also for the boom mic are you suggesting it sit on the back side of the desk or off to the side or front? It's a clamp style arm that i'm not sure where to put.. I'm worried that I wont have room for the mic to come up from the back side of the desk and I cant clamp it on the right or left side of the desk due to the alex drawers.

u/keithian · 1 pointr/oculus

custom made sensors stands that were stained to match the furniture. You can do the same with parts at home depot. The base is 7" in diameter. The height is 6 feet and it has a whole for the sensor drilled in the top slightly diagonal as it goes in so its easier to tilt the sensor head down.

http://imgur.com/jvM0nz5

An alternative that a couple of others have mentioned is a microphone stand that musicians use with an adapter for the Sensor to be held in place. Though I don't have the parts for that, a few google searches and you should be able to find that in black and it will be very very stable. Here are some examples, though I am not endorsing any of them and I have not tried any of them. It's just to help your search.

I just bought this mic stand. It's cheap and flimsy, but enough to hold he PS camera. The bolt at the top is just thin enough to go through the camera mount and the threaded "washer" holds it on great. This stand reaches my 8' ceiling and can go a bit higher I think.

Just for anyone looking for a cheap stand with no extra parts required.

u/ChosenAnotherLife · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have one like this this $12 one and have survived to this day without a shock mount. AMA.

u/Mikzeroni · 2 pointsr/podcasting

Go go to recommendation for people like you is to get the Samson Q2u or ATR-2100. As for a mic stand, I love boom stands because the risk of hitting it or bumping the table and the noise getting into the mic is less.

Both mics are USB and XLR so you can grow your setup to an XLR setup if you decide to later on.

u/TNBenedict · 2 pointsr/VoiceActing

I'm not a huge fan of desk stands for mics when doing voice-over. One of the biggest drawbacks is that it limits your options for positioning the microphone with respect to your mouth. Getting closer or farther away necessitates a change in posture rather than a change in position of the mic itself, which will affect other aspects of your voice and your ability to act.

Another drawback is that any vibration in the desk itself will transfer to the mic. You can address this to some degree with a shock mount for the mic, but no shock mount is perfect. They can attenuate, but can never completely remove vibrations.

If at all possible, a better course of action is to use a microphone stand that sits on the floor. This gives you the option of sitting or standing when you act, it isolates the microphone from other sources of vibration, and a good mic stand will stick with you for years. This one's about twice the cost of the desk stand you found, but I know a couple of voice actors who use it:

u/DecisivelyNumbGaming · 1 pointr/Twitch

If you have the room, I'd recommend a floor standing mic stand. Buy all the things you want separately so get only what you need.

A floor stand is easier to adjust and move when/if you need and means there are no desk vibrations that you need to worry about, just don't stomp your feet. Their adjustments are easy, lock to position, and are more solid than a tension spring in my opinion.

Plus it makes changing your setup and location far easier than requiring a solid surface to bolt the mic to should you ever do so.

For stands most have mentioned using microphone stands (~7ft extended) and I use a cheap (not this one) camera tripod (~4 ft extended) off amazon, or a monopod (~5ft extended) would work too, but could be wobbly; but they usually don't get as high as I'd like for a top-down camera angle, I use mine for traveling with the PSVR.

You could also use command strips to stick it to the wall or a couple thumbtacks and a binder clip among other options.

u/LucidBurrito · 2 pointsr/VoiceActing

It may not matter much to you but that boomarm is hilariously noisy, the springs pop and clang st the slightest touch. I recommend a floor standing mic stand, like this one. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019NY2PKG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_3Hy6BbZ6635GS

u/BangsNaughtyBits · 2 pointsr/podcasting

Something like a VIVO Black Height?

https://www.amazon.com/VIVO-Adjustable-Microphone-Counterbalance-STAND-MIC01/dp/B07GNTNPMJ/

Yellowtec sells something similar as well.

EDIT: The video here from earlier today by /u/TheAidenWolf uses one I think.

Unfortunately, $300 for a 4 person set up is going to be hard to make work well since you're basically starting from scratch. That's not to say it can't be done. Unfortunately, I'm going to give recommendations based on what I know is cheaper from a reputable name and hope none of these are right out terrible.

Behringer Q1202USB 12-Channel Mixer. 4 mic inputs, USB connection, $100.

Behringer Ultravoice Xm8500 Dynamic Vocal Microphone, Cardioid 4 at $20 for $80. Alternatively, BEHRINGER ULTRAVOICE XM1800S is a pack with 3 mics for $40, with one from the last link, gets you 4 mics for $60.

Cable Matters 2-Pack Microphone Cable (Mic Cable/XLR to XLR Cable) 6 Feet 2 packs of 2 at $15 for $30.

NEEWER Adjustable Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand 4 at $12 for $50. Alternatively AmazonBasics Tripod Boom Microphone Stand if a desk mounted stand is not ideal or possible, 4 at $20 for $80

I'm also not sure the diameter of those mics but I recommend whichever one of these fits. On Stage MY325 Dynamic Shock Mount Microphone Clip or On Stage MY330 Wireless Shock Mount Microphone Clip both about $10, so $40 for 4.

Depending on what compromises you're willing to make, this is a pretty budget 4 person set up at $280-$330, and I'd recommend saving the last $100 or so you need for it.

u/Northern_One89 · 0 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Is there a boom or scissor arm stand that can accommodate having the Switch on the end of the boom arm?

For reference Boom/Scissor stand

Or is there a stand that can work with a bit of jerry rigging if one doesn't work straight up.

Thanks in advance guys.

u/maksmcmuffin · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I use the InnoGear arm for blue yeti/snowball. I have it clamped to my monitor arm and it works really well! Just make sure that it's long enough before you buy it - for me it doesn't extend super far before hitting the monitor.

u/H_E_F_F_Y · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Here is the desk. I didn't attach the table thing to it because I thought it looked weird lol. And this is the mic!

Edit: I had to use an electrical saw to cut holes behind the desk to make the clamp for the mounts fit by the way

Works really well for shooting video.

u/MrGoodhand · 2 pointsr/Twitch

I've done a over the shoulder kb + mouse cam using one of those lever like mounts.

Something like this.

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Tripod-Boom-Microphone-Stand/dp/B019NY2PKG

It has worked well enough for me and is cheapish.

Bit flimsy, but you get what you pay for. It does the job.

u/coolcool23 · 3 pointsr/drums

Very nice! I was looking to do something similar but as a satellite display going the other way from my kit for keyboarding or guitaring (laptop as main display on a laptop stand) I actually ended up buying this as I had a spare mic stand: https://www.amazon.com/Stellar-Labs-35-4310-Standard-Microphone/dp/B008I5QEP4.

Still dont have the monitor itself, but Im working on that.

u/doougle · 2 pointsr/audio

Anything isolated from the desk. A floor stand would be good.

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Tripod-Boom-Microphone-Stand/dp/B019NY2PKG/

(not road worthy but for your house/office, fine)

u/aretzgaming · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Yup, I got it from amazon, link below. It came with everything I needed, that being said the only other thing I did end up buying was a pop filter for about 6$.

u/hacd123 · 1 pointr/videography

and does it matter what kind of boom pole stand I get? I mean will a $20 boom stand have the sam utility as a more expensive one? Will the cheaper stand affect my audio quality some how?

u/SmilerControl · 1 pointr/drums

Something like this. Fits between the boom end and the mic clip. Use the stand as normal. They sell different lengths of these. Edit Just saw you're Dutch. Sorry, I don't know any specific models for you but I think any of these should work with standard mic stand threads. Just do your research ahead of time.

Edit 2 themasecar pointed out Dave isn't using a gooseneck at all, but I'm leaving it in case you want to see another set up. Pic of one in use. You can set it up behind you and bend it down to your face. See if you can find photos of pro drummers who you know sing and check out their set ups.

u/3SeatShortBus · 3 pointsr/functionalprint

Small little under the desk mount I made for my microphone stand. Bought a cheap microphone stand (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019NY2PKG) & cut it down to my height.

The other stands & mounts out there take up a ton of room (large base) or attach to the desk in odd angles.

Benefit of this, it rotates in place, and I can easily remove the whole mic stand from the way.

u/pomaplata · 1 pointr/podcasting

Amazon Basic Mic Stand

I use mostly and it holds the SM7B with no issues other than I have to use my back pack as a weight to keep it from tipping over. They work great for the E835’s

I also have Gator Frame Works but have not used much.

u/ShadowBoogers · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I bought this one a few months ago.

Pretty solid. Long reach.

u/jopasm · 1 pointr/LocationSound

The lightest, most compact setup is going to be a pack of Rode invisilavs and a roll of medical tape so you can hide the lav on the person.

https://youtu.be/FsbLg-aQmDo

In a pinch I have mounted a shotgun on the end of a cheap mic boom stand. It works but you have to be extremely careful because it can be prone to tipping over. Only works with seated interviews, it can't get the height to get a mic out of frame overhead.

Thanks! I picked up the wallpaper from here. The mic arm is from here. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact model of the lux lamp. I picked it up from an OfficeMax a long time ago. Sorry!

And this is the stand I use. It's amazing for the price. The Yeti seems a bit loose on it sometimes but I've never had any issue with it

u/Proachreasor · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Arm and the shock mount . I would have gone without the shock mount, but the threading for the mic was changed like 1/16” bigger so the mount itself didn’t work. The shock mount fixed that though.

I'm not sure what sort of quality you're looking for but I use this one for both my Blue Yeti and now the Quadcast. I've had no problems with it. Owned for over a year, it works as it should with an easy setup.

u/daermonn · 1 pointr/audiophile

Hi all!

I just bought a UMIK-1 so I can start the process of measuring/DSPing/room-correcting. I recently bought a pair of Ascend Acoustic Sierra Towers w/ RAAL, but unfortunately I have (I think?) a really terrible room and I'm sure I'm not letting my speakers shine: huge open space, high sloped ceilings (~12' over speakers down to 8'), drywall, hardwood, windows, etc. Not sure how much wall space/girlfriend-approval I have for room treatments (I'll do what I can), but I figured getting a miniDSP DDRC-24 would be a big help, especially for when I add a subwoofer down the road. Before I did that, I wanted to try the Dirac Live trial to see how much of a difference it makes in my room.


Anyways, my dumb question: is the mini mic stand included with the UMIK-1 enough if I stick it on my couch, or should I invest in a cheap floor standing mic stand so I can be more precise with the UMIK-1 placement when taking measurements? Would I need to purchase an adapter to use with a generic floor stand, or can I unscrew the mini tripod included with the UMIK?
Any other advice for the measurement process?

Thanks!

u/erikmaxwell27 · 1 pointr/audioengineering

So i bought this mic

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CZ0R3S/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And this stuff to go with it

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VJJQUU/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019NY2PKG/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And now it seems that my roland duo-capture n225 died new out of the box after a few days and was having problems using it with audacity.

Best course of action for hooking up this mic to my laptop at this point?

u/iNyano · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you are worried about annoying your friends on Discord just take a few minutes to adjust your mic settings. I also found that using a microphone stand helped me a lot when it came to eliminating background noise on my mic.
