I'm working on getting a small studio set up for some podcasting of the editorials. That means I put a mike on my desk along with a pop filter. I tried to do some basic recording, but the problem so far is that the levels are too low. I tried the free "Audicity" download and it works pretty well, allowing me to combine multiple tracks into an MP3, but the volume on the mike still isn't quite loud enough.

I went and bought a pre-amp today, getting talked into a USB model from M-Audio, but it doesn't seem to work, or at least I can't get it to. I should have stuck with the basic mixer idea that I had and gone with that.

Actually we might do some video as well and once I get a good pipeline of editorials ready, I'll start releasing them.
