New Media Gift Guide #10: Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone

NMI Founder, Douglas E. Welch, is running a New Media Gift Guide on his Careers in New Media blog. Here is #10 in the guide, with links to all the past items.

#10 Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone

I was reading the Podcasters mailing list this week and saw mention the the Blue Snowball mic I mentioned earlier is being discontinued. This new USB microphone, the Yeti, is taking its place in the product line and has some good reviews. One major enhancement is the inclusion of an headphone jack to allow real-time monitoring when you are recording. This is a limitation of USB mics in that trying to monitor them through the computer induces a delay in the audio and makes it nearly impossible to listen to yourself while you record.

Certainly worth checking it out and I plan on doing that as soon as I can.

Audio: Ghosts of the Internet 2010 now available!

My friend, Michael Lawshe, from Eclipse-1 Media hosts an annual live reading of Halloween and spooky stories. A recording of this year’s show is now available for your listening pleasure. Everyone in the Welch Family took turns reading a variety of stories from the witches of William Shakepeare’s MacBeth to the haunting words of Edgar Allen Poe.
