Audio Recording

I recently finished up another exercise in Chaucerin’ some speculative fiction, which is good news.

The bad news is that I’m having trouble trying to record it. I don’t know squat about how to do it properly, and I have to rely on the cheap-o microphones that have come with my cheap-o computers over the years, recording in the middle of noisy houses.  I’m sure this shows on some of my other recordings.

At any rate, my one recording so far of this latest one sounds like I’m transmitting from a submarine. I’m going to try another cheap-o microphone and see how that goes. After all, the recording is a house-warming gift for a certain special someone who’s been moving from sea to shining sea of late. I don’t want it to lag too far behind her arrival in the house!


  1. I suspect you might have more time than you think.

    Try the Blue Snowball for a mic. $99 and very good.
