Recording Game – Level Up!

A few days ago I mentioned the little hiccup I had with my videos going to hell and how I wanted to use it as an opportunity to improve my recording setup and process. Here’s an update!

The first things I received last weekend were the Boom Arm and the Shock Mount for my Blue Yeti. The boom arm is great, a Rode PSA-1, very sturdy and quite easy to set up, just put clamp it tight on your desk. The Shock Mount was expensive as hell, over £70 through Amazon UK—even though the product costs only  fraction of that across the pond—and when I received it, it turns out the piece you use to screw the Yeti microphone to the Radius II was defective, too small to ever tighten the microphone to the mount.

In reality I don’t think the character needs much in terms of balancing, perhaps just give him some invulnerability during his Swift Strike dash, but that’s out of personal preference and frustration more than anything.

Extra Life 2015 Update – More Goodies!

Like every other member of the Extra Life Team Tomb Raider Community, I’ve been hard at work preparing everything I’ll need for the event, all four days of my participation. Some still find it strange that I would do it for so long, but I’m a realist and I know I’ll need at least 4 days to get even close to the $500. I hope what you’ll read below will incentivise you to donate some more. Continue reading Extra Life 2015 Update – More Goodies!
