2023-01-12 (Th) VoiceActing Microphone stand upgrades

My recording desk needed another upgrade. The springs on my microphone holder reverberated every time I taped the arm, desk, and even if I pressed on my keyboard too harshly. I bought some faux fur swatches and wrapped the four springs to dampen them.
Wrapped springs

I recorded a light tap on the desk before and after treating the springs. The amplitude and duration came down dramatically.

I have a short video to show the difference, but the difference is only noticeable with headphones or in a quiet room. I ran a screen capture on Audacity to make it a video, so it did not play immediately.
