Setting up the new recording space took longer than expected. The problem was finding and assembling working equipment. It was important to have a system as good, or nearly as good as what was available in the office. Since different computers were used, Windows tablets, the software was changing from Bandcamp to Audacity. The hardware was changing from an amplified shotgun mic to a USB mic and of course the computer hardware was changing. With all the changes to most obvious stumbling was the microphone and program but the problem turned out to be the computers. The low-power tablet computers created a long delay between the microphone and headphones. Hearing your voice while speaking is necessary but a long delay makes it drastically more difficult to record a natural sounding track.

 Two Windows tablets and hardware

No powerful Windows-based computers were available so the Mac was put in the recording space. This required an extension cord and splitter for the computer and monitor. The USB microphone was attached to the Mac but produced unusable sound. This was unexpected since the sound quality was good when attached to Windows machines. The shotgun mic was used again.

This procedure actually took two days but reading two days’ worth of how things were broken would be boring. Recording can now resume.
