MW3 Gameplay: Still Learning The Type 95 + What Desktop Mic Do I Use?

Still learning the Type 95 assault rifle on a kill confirmed match on the Fallen map. I also talk about the desktop microphone I use for my recordings. I use the BlueMic Yeti USB desktop microphone http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/

It’s an amazing mic and as it’s USB it’s fully digital audio you record to rather than converting analog to digital and needing extra hardware. You also don’t get any static or interference with a digital mic which is another plus. I actually talked about the mic when I first got it back in April if you’re interested in a great quality desktop microphone for all purpose recording.

Blue Mic – Yeti Professional USB Microphone

Exciting day today! I went and picked up a new Microphone for video voiceovers, music production and general recording needs. I got the Blue Mic Yeti USB microphone. This Microphone is a beast. It weighs quite a bit which is what you want in a desktop mic, feels nice and sturdy. It looks great and sounds amazing.

With 4 separate polar patterns this is one very functional USB microphone with a lot of different uses. As I mentioned I’ll mainly be using it for voiceover work on screencasts, how-to video’s, etc and music production but if I catch the podcasting bug (it might happen) I’ll be well equipped to tackle the challenge.
