    Default Audio mixer

    I'm thinking about adding a little extra pop to my display this year. I would like to start playing a song with lights on and then an electrical sound that mimics a short and the lights go out. I want to record someone saying "Oh, Oh. The lights went out" and then say "The problem is fixed" and start a song but not a Christmas song. When song is playing you hear the scratching of the needle across the record and song stops. I've got all that figured out including the electrical noise and the record scratch. What is the best or at least something decent that I can record audio and insert into the recording? Type of microphones would help also. I just don't want to spend a ton on it. I saw this but not sure if it's what I need.

    You can just record with your PC. I record with Audacity

    I use this mic.

    Also, we usually record setting in our master closet because all of the clothes give it a nice quiet place to record with no background noise.

    I have one of the mixer your showed but only use it between my PI and my FM transmitter / stereo

    I recorded on my Mac and it sounds like I'm in a tin can. I thought maybe a mixer would help. The recording I made is cool but the voice is garbage. Maybe just a mic would help.

    Since I don't have a mic the closet isn't an option. Would be hard to get my computer in it. Maybe cover myself and the computer with a blanket.

    I put a large towel over my head and the computer. What a difference. I'm going to order a mic which will probably be better than the internal mic of the computer. I did accomplish what I set out to do. It will debut in tomorrow night's show. May even post it here.

    Have you thought about using 'THX Robot'? You can download it from several places. Lot's of fun to use.
