Easier is better

Skype-mic photo

I used to be very picky when it comes to sound. Well, I still do 🙂

But one of the things which has changed is that I now love a bit of hum and noise while in the past I would try anything to solve these ‘issues’.

Yesterday evening I recorded a small demo for a project I am working on and simply used my Skype mic. It’s USB, plug it in and voila: sound! No pre-amp and phantom-power needed. I love that. Simple to use and the sound is cool. Even Andras Haasz told me:

Really? Sounds good.

    Hi Mary Anne!

    It’s a Logitech mic, you should be able to buy those at any computer-shop or Amazon.com.

    Billy you are right. capturing the moment is one thing. I like both. lowtech art and classic well-done stuff. have a look at the Donald Fagen photo’s. smooth jazz with dark looks…

    You’re quite right, Walter Pater is the only justification for Mona Lisa.
