Audio Experiments: Got my Headset and Mic Working… sort of

Okay, so I got my headset set up. I’ve been through a number of different microphones over the years, and none of them work the same as the other.

I’ve had one that was just a microphone without the headset attached that had little problems in working initially, but then I bent it the one day and it stopped working so well.

From there I started using the usual headset with microphone, and it sounded horrible when recording and on playback, until I mucked around with the motherboard, and stopped using Rear Mic, and instead the Microphone port in the front. Then it was much better.

That one eventually broke, because the cable got twisted, and my speakers went at about the same time. Another new headset and speakers later and I proceeded to test out my mic. It didn’t have very good recording quality on it, but the headset’s sound was pretty good. The headset was too heavy for me as well – it hurt my ears every time I wore it.

Then I had to give that one back to my brother after having borrowed it for years, and bought my own pair. And it wasn’t a cheap one like some of the others. And that’s the one I’m using now.

I’m still working out some of the bugs in getting it to work just right, but when I do, I’ll be able to record my own stuff and upload it. I have plans for UNF to have some sort of podcast, or else just me talking or whispering, which might trigger off ASMR for someone out there. I don’t guarantee that I have that sort of voice that would trigger it off, but I imagine I am quite well spoken, and have a bit of a British accent, seeing as it does run in my blood. Most of my family is from the UK - especially on my mom’s side.

I’ve read that some people, including those on the ASMR team like Adam and Domagoj can get ASMR just from reading or paying attention to things to do with ASMR, so there might be some hope. I’m still figuring out my approach, though.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
