CORRECTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS WOOPS MY BAD:
(2:35) Probably the biggest issue is that I claimed, “In the case of USB microphones, it’s the embedded sound-card of the motherboard that handles the converting”. This isn’t correct; the analog to digital conversion takes place within the USB microphone itself. However, the same principal still applies. The analog to digital conversion of the soundcard embedded in the microphone pales in comparison to the analog to digital conversion of a dedicated, standalone device (the interface.)
(4:26) I say that, “You’ll go nowhere as a creator or artist as long as you’re using one”. In saying this, I was referring to growth in quality as a creator as opposed to growth in channel size. You can absolutely produce good quality videos / streams without XLR equipment, however I want to push fellow creators for “great” as opposed to “good enough”. In hindsight, I should’ve phrased this differently to make it clearer.
(6:25) Not all interfaces are USB, the two other most common types are firewire and thunderbolt respectively. There are also some big boys that require their very own unique PCI slot in the motherboard. All the interfaces I show in this video are USB because they’re by far the most common, however there are plenty of great firewire / thunderbolt interfaces out there as well. Just make sure you have the correct ports on your motherboard before springing to buy one.
(6:45) This one is honestly just a misspeak. I accidentally say “quieter mics like *condensers* and ribbons” instead of “quieter mics like *dynamics* and ribbons”. I still strongly recommenced preamps for condensers, though.
(7:07) Not all interfaces with sufficient embedded preamps cost $7,000+ with $3,100 mics, that was more of an exaggeration for comedic effect than anything.
(7:26) I don’t think anyone was seriously holding this against me, but I accidentally mixed up the images of the interface and preamp in this section. Just a silly editing error I felt I might as well point out.
Today we tackle the most infamous part of the audio world: The Blue Yeti. It’s very bad. If you know someone who uses a Yeti / USB microphone, you NEED to send them this video.
This is by F A R the most work I’ve ever put into a video. Literal weeks worth of work went into writing the script and editing everything, so that’s why uploads have been slow. Now that my magnum opus is complete, expect more content to come out regularly.
