I'm starting to use (and learn about) my new podcasting equipment. I partially used it yesterday - I used the new mic through the mixer, but I had the gain turned up too high (and generated some hum as a result. I've been experimenting with it today, and figured out what I was doing wrong.
Anyway, it looks like I should be getting better results as I go along (not next week though - I used the handheld digital recorder to record my interview (and this was before I got the mixer anyway). Anyhow, here's a shot of mixer and the hookups there:
