There doesn’t seem to be a forum section on gear such as mikes, amps etc - at least I couldn’t find one. If not it might be an idea to start one to help the technically inadequate (like me)
A good friend of mine asked me to ask you blokes about this as you have recording experience: Larry, Mike etc.
He recently bought a condenser microphone with a direct USB input to be able to record sounds outside on a laptop.
This is the unit: swamp.net.au/usb-condenser-mic.html
He’s tried using it with Audacity but unfortunately he can’t get any results from it.The specs say it is plug and play and the reviews people have written don’t indicate any problems with this. He is a cluey bloke but this is outside his knowledge.
He is wondering if he needs something in between such as a pre-amp but I don’t see the need according to the specs.
The distributor is in Canberra so as soon as we get out of silly season and I have time I’ll go over with my laptop to try one out and see if it works for me, but in the meantime I thought I’d ask if you have any ideas on this.
Hope you all had a good Christmas.
