I came to a conclusion a month or so ago that a lot of the people I know are really special, and I would like to interview them.
It is an idea that makes me happy, and no fame or weird stuff is part of this idea, just happy thoughts.
Anyways. Here is the situation:
I want to call my old Buddys that I think are awesome. Will use Google voice from 1 of my computers, have a browser with some sound clips (flash, homer Simpson noises, fart sounds, or what ever might be fun), 1 or 2 you tube browsers open (keep the music and energy going, and shoot for a 15 minute or more audio interview, I can post online (with the interviewer’s permission of course)
Why? - Quick answers(s) - midlife crisis, and I am sick of doing nothing constructive and it makes me happy for what ever reason to want to do this. (weird huh?)
I can’t seem to get all the audio to record to a final mp3 or audio file.
I am stumped with my audio setup, and have tried so many things and now I am humbly asking for help.
Attached is a sample of my hardware setup, and an audio clip from an interview.
1 - Seems the quality of my Mic, the silly sound effects, and great music from you tube - are heard by me, the interviewer, and the people I interview.
2 - If I could figure out how to maximize the tools in my live audio podcasting setup, I would be truely greatful.
I like to use Google voice/gmail calling, cause it is free. I seem to run out of my Net10 minutes early every month, and Google voice could potentially eliminate any unnecessary generation loss or analog compromises.
I don’t know much about splicing ,/routing audio cables, not too much about audio drivers , but I want to know about this stuff.
2 laptops - Dell Vostro, and HP 2000, Both windows 7, plenty of software, but audacity seems like a good tool for pod casting according to waves of people online.
2 USB audio interfaces - LINE UX1, and Scarlet 2i2
Mixer - Behringer Xenyx 502 Mixer
Mic - Condensor mic, with preamp.
Plenty of cables, (1/4 inch, xlr, etc)
And even an ipod and a google nexus to plug into the mixer if needed.
(check my setup)
Could any one give me any recommendations on how to connect all of this, what driver to use, etc, and etc?
Check my attachments and give me some advice if you feel you can push me closer to my goal of 100% working podcasts (live interviews).
Please let me know if you have questions.
