"With the caveat that I have not actually sat down and watched the video, I own the mic and can assure you, you can live monitor. You do, of course, have to ensure that you have that selected as an option in the control center in Windows, as you…"

"I've used this microphone before.  It only has great audio in the direction the microphone is pointed to.  If there's people to the side or behind the microphone, it won't pick them up hardly at all."

"I know the headphone jack you can get playback on, but check out this YouTube thingy that says there is no live monitoring.  Meaning, as I'm writing I can hear through the mic in my headphones nice and amplified for the ever-dreaded…"

"Live monitoring is you can plug into the mic with your headphones and hear (amplified) what's coming through.  Like if you daisy chain these, you can hear through your headphones what is being said on the other side of the room in the…"

"The AC404 does have live monitoring - you can also get playback from your CAT software seemlessly if you've got an open file."

"Benjamin, Does that mic have live monitoring?  I looked it up and can't find a clear answer.  Sometimes even though they have a headphone jack, it doesn't always live monitor.  I have an Andrea but the live monitoring…"

"Hi Diane, I recently purchased an MXL AC-404. I'm a reporter now, but I was a videographer for years, so I'm pretty picky about my sound. :) I'm not sure just how "small" you'd like it to be, but bang for your buck,…"

Omnidirectional usb microphone

Does anyone know of a good source (and brand) for a small omnidirectional usb external microphone?  I just upgraded my computer, only to find out the internal mic doesn't work in Case for audiosync.  The local mics I've found are huge.  I'd like a small one to just clip on the computer.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!See More

What's cool about this website is if you hit on the "Cover Depos" tab at the top of the page, a map will appear.  Behind every red dot there are freelance reporters that have joined those groups.  If you may need a job covered in, let's say, Reno, Nevada and don't want to give the job away to another agency, you hit on the Reno group, join the group first, which allows you the ability to send an email blast to the entire group.  Then you hit on the tab "Send Message To Group."

 

Your message about work will go out to all the freelance reporters in that group.  Don't forget your contact info.  This site is literally helping agencies cover their jobs in a matter of minutes, which saves you time and, of course, money.

 

There is a $49.95 once a year charge for the Bay Area group, LA group and New York.  The rest of the groups are free.  Good luck!!

Is this the Diane Smith I used to know in Southern California in Laguna Niguel and then you moved to Mission Viejo and we worked for Maxene Weinberg for a time?  Wasn't sure.
