Re: Advice for home recording studio?

Hi Tim -
I was in the middle of reading a web article and got sidetracked, wound up on DVinfo and read your thread. While the article I was reading won't necessarily provide the advice you're seeking it might help a bit. - The Well-Balanced Mic Closet : Recording Magazine - It's all about mics and I'm sure there is some useable information there. Unfortunately, people on a budget pretty much have to make do what they have and can't necessarily run out and buy what would be better, or the best.

I really liked reading the part where he wrote that Dolly Parton had a mic with her name on it locked in a safe.

Another resource one could use is the Shure customer help web site: Find Answers
Even if one isn't using a Shure product, there is a lot of good information there about micing things. I've come across other mic companies with similar support sections.

Disclaimer: when it comes to mics I'm an amateur hobbyest so "consider the source."

Question for Allan Black: Would a pop filter be of any help?

Not Allan...but for what it's worth, in preparation for doing voice overs, I made a pop filter: One pair of pantihose, a 200mm el cheapo needle work ring, a piece of heavy gauge wire as a stand or for attaching to a mic stand...

I suppose it worked... :-) ...anyway I used it...

Who says video has to be expensive?

My wife would approve of this - less money spent on my hobby!
