My goal for a while now (since November 2006 — yes, its March 2009 now) has been to be to start a podcast. Or two. Or a network of podcasts. Lofty goals, but a man has got to dream, no?
I’ve now made the first step into getting that started. I purchased a Samson C01U USB Studio Condensor Microphone. Its a great mic – and it works as advertised. Just plug it in, adjust the sound levels, and its recording just fine in GarageBand or Audio Hijack Pro. I didn’t but the shockmount (aka “spider”) from Samson, as I found a cheaper, metal one, for RM90.
Finding recording gear isn’t the simplest. I ended up having to go to Pasar Road to get the item (from Instraco). It seemed more convenient than having to order it in from overseas.
So, what will I be podcasting about? Something free & open source related, naturally. At least for starters. Another one for startups, entrepreneurs, and so on, I’m sure of (it doesn’t have a name, or a domain).
Update: A link to the product sheet, as it has a very interesting video about how the C01U and C03U work, and how to position it, and so forth.
