Rode Podcaster, M-Audio, Subsonic 4.7 Beta, Google Music, Windows 8 Release Preview, Facebook Messenger, MSE Pre-Release – HT073
Jim and Andrew (well…sort of) are joined this week by special guest John Zajdler and Gary Johnson filling in for Christian on show 73 of The Home Tech Podcast.
Gary picked up a new Rode Podcaster – Large Capsule Broadcast Quality Dynamic Microphone with Rode PSA 1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm and Rode PSM Shockmount for Podcaster (link). It’s an XLR mic (he was hoping for USB) so he also picked up the M- Audio Fast Track (link) to convert the sound to USB.
