Unlike Noise, a YouTube channel typically devoted to desktop based music production has done a "Let's Play" of Mersenne. There's no commentary on this video, and his recording method doesn't show finger taps, so you'll have to pay close attention to follow this one. I think it is worth watching if you're curious about Mersenne though, because the video feels like a solid jam session.
Several apps went on sale over the weekend, including IK's new AmpliTube Acoustic. Note that while the base app is on a slight discount, the Unlock All Styles IAP is currently $25. I'm not sure if that is discounted, but it doesn't seem like it.
IK recently released this promo featuring Matty Amendola, whose 'Fro could reasonably be said to be, "Righteous." His vocal fry just sounds whiny as fuck though. Why would you have this man do VO when he sounds like this?
YouTuber Music Repo has started a series comparing USB microphones. Here she compares the Samson Go Mic, Blue Snowflake, and Samson Meteorite. All of these mics are iOS compatible and relatively affordable at $40-60.
The Samson Go Mic, the Blue Snowflake and the Samson Meteorite are all cute little mics with their own sweet appeal. They are all plug and play USB condenser microphones. They each have a similar recording resolution of 16-bit, and either 44.1 kHz or 48kHz sampling rate, so all record at CD quality.
They connect directly to your computer with mini USB lead, all are simple to use an lovely to look at. They all work on iPad (with USB connector kit) as well as mac and pc. So how do you choose which one to buy?
Which of these is the best budget microphone?
The best way to decide is watch the video, then go and listen to the raw recordings of each mic, so you can directly compare them. I have uploaded full uncompressed recordings of each mic at http://www.musicrepo.com/which-usb-mi...
