Really? I figured it would be easier to acquire a job in a metropolitan area... Guess not.
I think it has more to do with the fact that California is broke to be quite honest. It took me two years to get a job, albeit this is my first one, and that's one of the reasons why I didn't start LPing until later. I don't know how the job market is in other states, but here it's pretty tough. Although the minimum wage here is about $8.25 and hour or so.

I never knew pop filters cost that much... Then again, I think I recall Maceman/older directors saying you could just put an old sock on it instead.  Undecided Not that it sounds sanitary, or anything, but I would be rather adverse to putting my mouth close to a worn sock...

You might want to talk to Japan about the Yeti stuff, as I *think* he uses one.


By the way, you make it sound like you live in Idaho, Mactin. XD Jobs aren't too hard to find if you live on the coast.

Sorry to confuse you. I was talking about how much a blue yet mic, pop filter, On Stage Stands MS7701 Tripod Boom Microphone Stand  cost together. I look on the web and a pop filter cost around 16$.

BTW, I been trying to find a job and it is getting harder in the coast.

I been able to get a job but that when I was in workability in high school and such. I notice that to get a job your going to need to get contracts from the inside.

Yeah that's usually how it is nowadays, you need to know someone on the inside really.
As for the Blue Yeti, Adventure Andy uses one, but he dropped out of the Director program and I don't seem him on Game Anyone really anymore unfortunately.

Question, where are you buying the Mic from, well if you haven't already. Reason is because Amazon is having a sell on the Blue Snowball and Blue Yeti mics, the Platinum version is going for about $99 right now.

And Duke, conragts on makin me feel insecure about my commentary quality so I ended up buying said Blue Yeti mic on sale, mainly though it was because I need a good group mic when recording with friends since the one we use turns to crap the longer we use it.  Tongue
Also because I would a wall mount for it along with an adjuster so then I can still be lazy when recording.  Cheesy

Most high end  condenser mics are meant for studio use, and can use adjustable arm mounts and such Tongue. Generally speaking, though, any mic can be used for multiple speakers. It just depends on if you want to physically hand the mic to the rotating participants, or if you want to deal with the risks of omni-directional patterns. Think about what you need, the risks associated with it, and whether you can control your environment. Of course, budget comes first I suppose... I always forget that.

Really I actually don't have a group mic and it's my friend's that we use when recording something while we're in the same room. Other problem would be echo if we all had a different headset, like what happened in my very old L4D2 LP. At least with this we've got some control for it and with some of the better settings on the Blue Yeti I'd be able control noise better.

Plus, it's on sale dammit, and the chances of it being that low are very slim. But budget isn't a problem for me because I pay all my bills first, then use the leftover money for pleasure stuff. Not bad considering I just started school, payed all my bills, and am left now with over $700 in checking and over $200 in savings.  Tongue

If there is one thing I know, it's budgeting.

Yeah right, I believe that it was one of the culprits why my application to be a director got rejected. I believe that if I get a better microphone, the audio quality would improve, and with that I have a better fighting chance to succeed.

Funny, because if you thought it was one of the culprits you wouldn't have made that huge, pointless, asp thread and blamed other things. -_-

When I started doing commentary, i was using a really cheap Logitech headset. It was only $20 so you get what you pay for. Then I upgraded to a more expensive Logitech headset, around 50. It did much better than before, but the mic was way too short so it still wasn't the best. Then I was able to get my hands on a Turtle Beach PX21 headset. This time everything was working great, mic quality was good and everything. But it still wasnt enough haha. SO my final mic that I bought was a Blue Snowball. So far its been my best yet, and Im really enjoying it. So to answer your question, it really matters on how much money you want to spend on a mic. To me, if you want great quality with a headset, get a Turtle Beach or Triton headset. But if you want excellent quality, go for a Blue Snowball or Yeti.

To be honest I'm using a basic GE headset mic for my commentary on my LPs.  I used to use the Afterglow Wireless Headset and it didn't sound good at all.  It sounded like total utter crap.  Like I was a robot.  Honestly, I prefer this headset that I'm using now.  I sound really clear and can be easily understood when I'm editing.
