Sempre sul tema della scelta del microfono giusto. Un post più completo del precedente.

wonderful input

I like that the speaker Will was straightforward and thorough with explaining different mic options and how to apply different techniques  to help the recording process. It interested me that Will demonstrated the muff or "dead cat" showing that the usual use is for wind noise reduction but it may be used for reducing noise in certain vocal overtones.

Hello Axelletess, thank you for sharing this cute little gem.

Unfortunately it's a speaker, not a microphone. Unfortunately you can't use to record your voice or to karaoke as it plays, but it does not capture sound. :-)

Ah ha! Axelle's got nothing to do with this blunder: I made the edition Robin! And I connected this to some other thing she'd told me so had no doubt this was a mike... Thanks for pointing it out ;-) Will edit.
