want that lighting setup bad
I think ICS's panorama function works much better outdoors with proper lighting.
I got some new speakers.

It wasn't an insult, I thought he was 14, maybe I'm confusing him with someone but I thought he lucked out on bitcoins and made a few thousand or something.
Shitty phone camera and messy. Meh.
Also DAT cable management, I could not give 2 shits atm Just moved in a week ago. Also just getting back into full time study so im just going to get less motivated.

Sort of an old picture, not much has changed but I won't take a new picture once I'm done moving things around.
My work cubicle (yes that's the Win98 maze screensaver, don't worry, we have i7s and Win7)
my actual desk
I need to clean it and get rid of the spiders behind it
also shitty pic quality because camera phone -> skydrive
The microphone you see in that picture is a shitty Samson Q1U. I only have it because I got it for cheap. My real radio microphone is the Shure SM7B, which is sort of a radio legend. It's a Dynamic Cardioid (like your SM58). The reason Dynamic Cardioid is preferred is due to the fact that if you have alot of people in your studio, the very direct pick up pattern will be perfect for only getting your voice. That's why they're also used in live performances, although being not prime for vocals.
Condensers however can often have much broader pick up patterns, which is why they're used in padded studios and what have you for vocal performances. I use a Condenser for when I do internet radio/podcasting via Skype. It should be fine for all other voice activities aswell, just be aware of your background.
(if this seems all broken and stuff sorry I'm kind of drunk)
Point is, people make the mistake of getting a USB condenser alot, and that's dumb. It'll sound trashy and have tons of interferance, and they probably don't realize they need a good environment for it. Honestly unless you're doing it for money in a studio, high end radio mics like my SM7B/EV RE20, aren't worth it either, and at lower prices it'll really be worth your time to get a proper XLR interface.
This is a really good basic one;
along with phantom power (if you're getting a condenser)
and some XLR cables, you'll have almost no interference and it'll sound golden.
gah reading that i cant understand what im saying damn you alcohol
Point is, if you have a really noisy room and can't afford a proper interface and shit, get a USB SM58 because it's a fine mic that'll get the job done.
If you have a really noisy room but can afford a proper interface, get the US-100+an XLR SM58.
If you have a low noise room (when your electronics are off theres no real noise being generated inside your room), get the US-100, the Phantom Power, 2 XLR cables, and maybe this
It has a warm and smooth radio tone, but can also be used for vocal recordings. It's not extremely crisp compared to some higher end Condensers, but it's a damn fine microphone. It was 59.99 yesterday, which does suck for you since the price inflated or something, but it's a microphone I'd happily pay 100 bucks for, and it has a shockmount that works fine, so whats there to lose?
Lots of people default to the AT2020 but in my opinion it's not worth the money at all, and it's far too neutral for my tastes.
thumbnails hooooooooooly fuck please
I like what you did with the g15 v2 LCD screen, so ghetto. I might do that when I get a new keyboard.
