You look like Christmas has come twice for you this year Joe :D I like the BBC style "there are other mics available" too. Very pro.

In all seriousness tho, it really is a great sound quality... amazing! Totally professional sounding, could almost be in a studio. Did you record in a small room, or are you just lucky with the acoustics?


Hi Seth,

Thanks for the comment. I recorded the demo in my study as you can see in the picture. As the room has a lot of things in it, this probably helps the acoustics by deadening the sound somewhat.

Hi Joe

A good summary of all the various options there. I couldn't have done it better myself!


Cheers Paul,

A lot of this is down to your kind explanations in our interview and your session at PodCampUK.

Thanks again. You flatter me!

Hi Joe,
Thanks for that. I have a dictaphone but sound quality isn't the best so I was looking for an external mic. I will also be recording away from pc so need the dictaphone.
Problem is that the dictaphone has a normal audio jack, any ideas what sort of mic I could/should use?
'ppreciate it,


Hi Noel,

It sounds like you'd be best off buying a Logitech USB mike for about €15 for your PC and getting a lapel microphone for your dictaphone or buying an iRiver such as the E100 which has an internal mike although you can attach an external one too. They can cost around €80.

Hope that helps

Super, thanks for the help Joe.
