I apologize if i’m duplicating efforts - i’ve trolled the boards for a bit and couldn’t find what I think i’m looking for.
I record a weekly podcast that usually has 4 people recording, but can have up to 6, and I would really like to start getting individual mics for the staff. (Example podcast: http://www.dorkadia.com/2013/12/05/episode-18/). We currently record with a Yeti mic (http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Microphones-Yeti-USB-Microphone/dp/B002VA464S) on a table we all sit around and try RIDICULOUSLY hard not to touch. Unfortunately the voices are often anywhere from very loud laughing, to one guy who frequently turns his head away from the mic and mumbles.
I’d like to get everyone on their own mic, but i’m having difficulty finding something that would take up to 6 live microphones. I’ve seen a lot of recommendations for the Peavey PV6, but I think that limits me to 4 microphones. I’d like to keep the price under $5-600 if at all possible. I will say i’m very novice at this, but would love some input!
