Hmm.... yes, what's a 'logicpro webcam'? Logic pro is a Apple DAW, not a webcam.Stephen Kenyon wrote:Oh so Logic Pro is the software, sorry was assuming it was a webcam make but no that can't be right because a Surfacepro is a Windows machine, which won't run Logic software, because its Apple only. So please clarify, its important Is it actually a Logictech Pro webcam?
Well for starters you will get much better quality audio if you had gone for a proper audio interface rather than doing this piecemeal by buying a separate phantom power supply, then a cable to convert XLR to USB, and now an XLR > 3.5mm. For one thing you would have got a proper preamp, which you still won't have. You will find things very quiet/low levels and noisy (hissy) going straight into the motherboard/onboard audio line in.fraim wrote:doh! logictech...not logicpro! apologies that i got you so stumped!
correct about the sound...my recorded voice sounds so different then the ones i hear in my head
but i think i might have found a solution. i saw a youtube where a guy was reviewing a setup like mine. his results showed that the recording had too much gain (?) even with windows mic at the lowest setting, with the xls -> usb connection. then he showed an xls -> 3.5mm connection & the sound was correct. i ordered one & will give it a go.
OK I get that you don't need high level equipment but you are going about this the wrong way. A dedicated USB microphone (Samson, Subzero) would be the simplest option for what you want to do - it would be easy to use, just plug in and record and cheaper than what you have already spent on all your gear so far (plus you are still not there yet..). This is not the same as buying a standard condenser mic, and a cable that goes from XLR to USB (USB mics have built in soundcards).fraim wrote:thanks for your reply blondie!
i'm a classical guitar player but am pretty ignorant in recording myself. i'm not looking for any pro quality for distribution, for example. rather i'm just trying to get an honest self feedback of tone, lh & rh positioning, posture, etc., so that's all i'm trying to achieve. maybe you were thinking of a pro quality recording. i'm an intermediate/advanced player an am just looking at new ways i can improve.
i'll take a look at those settings you mentioned. do you have any recommendations on recording software?
