Playing with Toys

When I first got into hip-hop and rapping five years ago, I never imagined that I'd own a microphone or be performing on a weekly basis. My Super 55 is treating me well, but in order to make the most of it, I've got a TC-Helicon Mic Mechanic preamp in the mail, and I'm excited to chain my two toys together.

Tonight, Jeremy and I recorded some of our performance using an Apogee Jam 96k, and that eliminated all the ambient noise at RumFire, which is the first step toward quality live recordings. We've got some work to do with levels, but I know that with all our new toys, we'll figure it out.
