How to stop that annoying popping sound on your spoken audio.

Links to YouTube videos where I review some mics:

You can get pop filters at many electronics and music outlets – for online options look at Dolphin Music (UK), Amazon.com (USA). This pop filter by Rode from Dolphin Music (UK) has a small clamp which should be well suited to the Blue Snowball <— AFFILIATE LINKS 🙂

What’s the best microphone Its to get started in podcasting?

I start off talking about headsets in general – Plantronics do Галерея nice ones.

DISCLOSURE: Most of the links to purchase are AFFILIATE LINKS. I’ll get a commission if you end up buying the product. This helps me to feed my children. If you don’t want his to happen just use Google 😉

For a good condenser microphone – take a look at the Samson C01U. Get it from Dolphin Music (UK), Amazon.com (USA).

The Blue Snowball is another condenser microphone wholesale mlb jerseys worth considering. You can buy this from Amazon.co.uk (UK), Apple Store (UK), Dolphin Music (UK)Amazon.com (USA)

Both these mics plug straight into your dell’ computer via USB.

I talk about the Shure SM58 – Off this is a popular, robust dynamic microphone class=”light”>Oxted (It’s the one I use on this podcast). Bear in mind with this mic that you’ll need something to plug wholesale nfl jerseys it into – it has #2: an XLR plug that wont plug directly into your computer. You’ll need an XLR to USB interface, a mixer or a cheap nfl jerseys separate audio recorder with XLR inputs such as the Zoom H4.

Purchase the SM58 from Amazon.co.uk (UK)Dolphin Music (UK)Amazon.com (USA).
