Best Practice

Are you up to date on your software?

  • Double-check your software before recording. Does it need to be updated? Should you wait on the update because it has some weird glitch and they’ll put out a small fix soon?

Blubrry Pro Tip

Using your podcast to answer FAQ’s 

Question of the Week: I’m trying to help a colleague connect a mixer (Mackie 1402VLZ4) to a new Macbook pro. Unfortunately, Apple has removed a mic input on more recent Macbooks. Any ideas for a good solution that won’t introduce noise into the sound chain?

Answer: Yes. Get yourself a USB sound card or interface. Make sure it has a line-in jack (not just a mic jack) because the output of an analog mixer is going to be line-level. Line-level is way too high for the mic input.
