They used to be top of the line about 6 years ago.
The print center i worked at was in a store that sold electronics and computers and so i waited for a sale and used my employee discount.

I have seen 'em on Ebay for around $60 each
You could opt for a corded version which is much cheaper.

I got the top of the line because i was gonna record my spills (i have an unused You Tube account) and when i Skype i went for Quality
Also, i can do laundry and listen to music from the computer desktop.

But I’m not sure if my voice is suitable coming from Sean Connery country, but don’t have his golden lilt more a gruff Scottish garble without any finesse

I use the built in mic on my laptop, but, I have just ordered the one Missy has.  I also use audacity to record. All of the info is on Loud-speaker group, you will find so much help on there.
I've just created this audio with my laptop, can't wait to try out my new mic.

You may need the 48V phantom power to use it with your PC.

Lady, it was a joy to chat you. more than that I have a much better understanding of you and your poetry. you are a true legend, and I'm delighted it has come across to others  who've listened


for those teetering on the edge of spoken let me say this: Anna Grin's spoken was her first ever. it is a world exclusive.  she sounds fantastic *hat tip* Anna . we'll be getting to know Anna in a lot more depth next episode, don't miss it


also. let me take this opportunity to thank Umm who put in a lot of work to bring legends from concept to reality *hat tip*  

and to Daniel who was kinda put on the spot to join the team and in fairness done a stellar job of it *hat tip*

finally to missy who's grit and determination and sheer creativeness has taken the whole idea of the podcast into what we all hear


an absolute wonderful experience



Couldn't agree more Eamonn. It's been fun and interesting. Looking forward to more.

*Missy bows* I’d like to thank you guys who literally took an idea I had waking up at 4 in the morning about a fkn podcast into reality. So maybe good things can come from pure anxiety after all.



You're the driving force madam and I'm happy to be on board.

Magdalena said:Twas a joy chatting with your good self also Lep. Much enjoyed.  I'm up for submitting my spoken word to a future podcast if you would like?

Missy, your creative flare knows no bounds and the energy that you put into that is inspiring.

Thank you Missy, Umm, Eamonn and Daniel. Keep on keeping on.

P.s
I was very audio shy and then I took a step and started experimenting with audio poetry, with the help and inspiration from Jesta, Missy and Case. Everyone should have a go.


You and Eamonn did a terrific job Magdalena. It was a joy to listen and do the segue. Looking forward to more contributions from you and others.

Its a good thing you point this out, Magdalena. I think an audio can surely give one more confidence and as a modern day poet it might be a pluss in ones book. I used to enjoy reading out loud though for various reasons I stay away from it. I just think I sound like ET calling home due to the poor qualiity of my audios. I admire the audios of those Ive listened to.  Though I must say pen and paper are my haven, still unsure if I will submit audio in the future. I had some on my pages but the vocal parts and even the images werent really that great so I took it away.[/quote]

I honestly cringed at the sound of my own voice when I first started doing audios, I still do sometimes. An idea is to just record yourself and keep listening and experimenting with different readings and one day, you may just feel okay with sharing.

I feel the same Tallen. I never really listen to my audio poems. Just a bit for quality assurance.
