Setting Up A New StudioAugust 30, 2010
As listeners know, I have been experimenting with a new home studio lately. The Vista PC is gone, the iMac is now the primary machine, and the Compaq laptop and netbook round things out. There have been problems, though. Audio quality on Books You Should Read is noticeably problematic, and the Admiral tells me he can detect a low feedbacky hum from my Starbase recordings. I solved these problems by (a) scrapping a faulty microphone cord (b) keeping the loud-ass-fan iMac off while recording and using the Compaqs and (c) moving the studio slightly to adjust ambient background sound.
I think it’s going to work. You can find out here.
Anyway, here it is: My new studio, Weather Station Omega.
