Aiming for Podcast-style narrations of content related to my job.
Regarding the "audio" aspect I am under the impression I should maybe start with the room acoustics -- at least to get some quantitative idea about my mancave's setup.
Is this a good approach?
- I downloaded some white noise from a random source I found
- also dug out my movie-production type of clapper
- hooked up a SM7B (I feel kind of committed to all this *g*) to a DBX 286s (see before) into an older Focusrite Saffire 6
- recorded abrupt (and even clipping) noises with Audacity
- and used the dB scale of the tracks to get an idea about the duration
The reason I am asking is that despite some "fragmented" surfaces in the room like an open book shelf (but also "hard" closed cupboards) the return seems rather fast. Too good to be true?
(Obviously a spoken word sound recording will also give some qualitative idea, but I don't feel that confident yet.)
