It’s been some time since we last uploaded a video to YouTube. The main reason is that we have been having issues with our microphones. When we would record we would get a lot of white noise which shouldn’t be happening for either of the microphones we are using – the Rode NT1a and the 3Dio Pro binaural microphone.
We tried all sorts of things to see what was causing the issue including:
- using three different sets of microphone cables
- recording wit the Zoom H4n and the Zoom R24
- changing locations to see if it was a room issue
Yesterday I decided to go through the whole process again and started to test different cables etc but eventually gave up and decided just to plug the Rode NT1a mics back in to the Zoom R24 like we would normally do an lo and behold it suddenly started to work again. So we have no idea what the issue was but at this point, we don’t really care as the Rode NT1a is recording nicely again.
So the two videos below are just a couple of mic tests I did yesterday to test it all out again. They are sounding a lot better.
The first video is voice only and the second video is sounds only.
