1) Is it perfect? Did I just bump a mixer settings, is this consistent between takes, etc? Basically, my OCD creates problems where there is none. I tend to "over-tweak", given the opportunity. I know how to use a mixer, and there's the problem...I tend to want to go just a step further.
2) Mic placement is a pain in the ass - even on a mic arm. I move a lot when I talk, and that of course, doesn't work that great when you need to speak into a stationary device.
Based on those reasons, I have found that I'm MUCH happier with the results from the headset. In post edit, with very minor tweaking, the audio sounds outstanding without me trying make it sound "just a bit better."
I should have done this a long time ago. Feeling MUCH happier with the results now. I'm glad I have the mics and gear, but I don't think I'll be messing with it much going forward. Messes with my focus.
This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €199 to support development of Nuvola Player in November 2015.

My experience with various desktop Linux distributions dates back to early releases of Red Hat, but really took off with early versions of Knoppix. From there, I traveled to Linspire 4.0-5.0, SimplyMepis 3.1, Debian and then finally settled on Ubuntu. Most recently I made the permanent switch to Linux Mint.
My problem solving and troubleshooting dates back to solving a Flash/Audio issue on Linspire 4.5 with a minor piece of code. Since then, I’ve offered up scripts, work-a-rounds and other ways to make the Linux experience as painless for new users as possible.
These days, I spend my time answering questions, writing articles and providing common sense solutions to problems that crop up for the casual Linux enthusiast. I’ve shared tips on selecting software, peripherals among other items of interest to ease the transition for newer Linux users.
