The pictures show other tricks. That book/towel thing is how to avoid picking up floor and building vibrations in your microphone. You need both. The towel provides sloppy isolation from the desk and the book provides a high inertia, heavy base. Between them you get almost total isolation.

The gold conference room microphone is heavy and sitting in a rubbery vibration mount. So that's the heavy and sloppy. This is the mount with a different microphone. You can just see the black "rubber bands" in there.


I made one out of hardware store parts.

How did it go with the Tascam multi channel unit and Audacity ?
Can it record over USB to multiple discrete channels in Audacity ?

I am looking at recording 4-channel from ancient 4 channel reel to reel tape recorders
and exporting to 4-channel Wav or WMA.
