I decided to take one more shot at getting the amazing sound that I was after with my Shure SM7B but this time I made changes based solely on what the audience suggested... and it turned out great!

  • Hey any sound gurus know what would happen if you used a cloud lifter with the goxlr? Would it increase the distance you can be from the mic? Or just cause clipping?

  • I'm late for this party tbh but here are my two cents (haha get it?). The GO XLR has not solved your issue as you have reported. Your proximity to the microphone has got you 98% of the way there. Watching both videos you went from 2ft away from the mic in the previous video to 2 inches away in this video. I feel you could have accomplished neigh on the exact same result for $0 extra dollars with free software and the proximity change. But kudos for looking back at yourself and being critical. Audio is a world in which we are constantly learning.

    AegisHyperonAegisHyperonTháng trước
  • What you are doing isn't really proximity effect, but sort of. Yes if you swallow the mic you will get a proximity effect. However that mic isn't as bad with it as other mics are. The problem you had is I am sure others told you is that mic just isn't designed to do what you were trying to do. That is a "dynamic" mic with a very low sensitivity. It is designed to be close to your mouth and to have good rejection for ambient noise. Most dynamic mics with that rejection pattern are going to require you to get close to it. Like a sm58 or something like that. If you want the mic farther away you need a boom or shotgun mic designed for that. Or a condenser mic with better senitivity. Problem with one of those is they pick up a LOT. So you would need a fairly quiet room to use them in or it will pick up all the ambient noise. As for all the stuff your interface came with you can get most of that for free anyway. Nothing you showed there can't be done with reaper or OBS with reaper plug ins or other vsts. And there are any number of interfaces you can use that are pretty good ranging from 80 bucks into the thousands. I personally use a Focusrite 2i2 3rd gen but its pretty basic. The one you have is pretty cool if you want the extra mixing features and stuff like that. You did wast your money on a cloud lifter though. They simply are not needed and don't really improve anything. You can just raise your levels using software before or after you record it or before you stream it. If you are getting -20 some db coming in from your pre amp to your software it isn't a big deal. Just boost it in the software to where you want it. It will actually make your noise gate work better to be honest. I intentionally use a slightly low input level just so I have more headroom to work with stuff. I just have a pre amp or gain setting as the last thing in my vst chain to make it what I want it to be.

  • Hey Jay.... my mind is BLOWN! I was considering the Rodecaster Pro for livestreaming my podcast and radio show but after watching this I have changed my mind. QUESTION! Regarding the threshold features on the mic settings. (and this is what blew me away as a possibility) I do audiobook narration for ACX. They require a noise floor of no greater than -60db. Am I understanding this correctly, that if I were to set my threshold to -60db it would essentially guarantee me the proper noise floor? In other words... it would regulate my room noise? Thanks again for the video and I hope to hear your answer. Thanks!

  • audio engineer here! - when you "live monitor" you are only hearing the "Direct Input". Meaning you are only hearing your microphones signal at the input, before it is routed into the software. Now some audio interface cards will work im not sure why you'd hear all the changes you make except the compressor? maybe its a bug in the software

    KaotixMusicKaotixMusic2 tháng trước
  • It is so much irony, that you complained about wasting money on that microphone, just to be happy about wasting 500 bucks on top. Ahaha... 😂 But that is just my opinion on it. Let me explain why: Your old audio interface - if you used the inline preamp you had alongside it - was perfectly fine running that mic and everything you needed was some free software to do some post processing. That is basically what you did with the software of the GoXLR. As for the extra features.... well that’s another topic. I have a similar set of features for about half the money, not counting some sound toys, like the voice pitcher or adding of reverb with some knobs at hand. But in exchange I got something much more useful (to me) and that is even more channels tor the sound. Eight input channels with up to five microphones, tho right now I never connect more than two. Instead I use the extra channels alongside virtual cables to have five audio channels for whatever sounds on my PC and prepared for adding in even a capture card as well. I have yet to add a daw controller to have hardware controls, but since most daw controllers give you 8 faders as it is, for like 120 bucks or so. Getting it all in a single sleek box, albeit without 2 of the audio channels for PC sounds, is arguably worth the premium.... to some. I for one prefer to have separate devices and pieces of hard- and software to change up things, if I’m not happy with what I got. That is obviously not possible here. But yea... I kinda get why so many people, who put the trigger on that box, are happy with their new toy. Going from using an audio interface with no knowledge to this solution presenting you with all the stuff you need, never knew you needed and more stuff, you don’t need, has to be fun.

  • Mad respect for admitting where you were wrong. That MIC is awesome when used properly. To be fair, the Scarlet devices are great, but they're meant to be recorded using ASIO into a DAW such as Reaper or Cakewalk where you'll have your choice of VST options. It can then output that produced sound via the outputs or you can simply record it directly through the ASIO. I use it to record my band and with my laptop for live performances and midi-controlled effects. If you wanted to use it like you'd planned, you'd have to open the DAW every time you used the MIC and apply the appropriate EQ, then use something like ASIO4ALL to map the output to a virtual output and use that as your audio source for OBS. I don't find it practical outside of either recording or performing live while recording. The GoXLR is a great choice to get the most important functionality you want.

  • YOU NEED A LOW CUT to at least 150hz - much too much bass. Very annoying to listen to. And teamspeak/dischord will sound like you put the mic in a box of towels and close it - muffles as hell.

  • I think I've done all of these with equalizer APO, cheap mic, cheap mixer and voicemod. Not more than 150 bucks. Sure it's not as convenient as the device ..(The setup and research itself takes days). But hey, when you don't have 2 million subscribers....

  • Hey Jay, thanks for this great video. I'm about to get exactly this setup. But since there dosen't come any XLR Cable with the SMB7 I was wondering, which cables you're using. There's XLR for a few bucks and there's XLR for a diamond ring :D Did you look for any specific features? I guess I will pick one from the mid price section because it won't be in "mobile" use and has not to be that flexible. As I thought your sound seemed nice I wanted to ask which one you got. Yeah... bunch of lines for a cable question... :D Thanks

  • the reason your hearing crackling is because the live monitor is meant to give you your true sound. No processing from the computer. I’m not entirely sure how GoXLR works, but if it’s anything like actual monitoring on a preamp, you should just be hearing your dry signal.

  • GoXLR looks so good at first glance, but I really wish they had thought a little bit harder about audio quality. It's really focused on being a software solution for streamers, which it does _really_ well. However, audio wise, it's not even comparable to to the Scarlett Solo that Jay replaced. GoXLR is the epitome of the "lets just fix it in post" mentality crossed with a healthy dose of "Youre just using it to stream, Twitch is gonna compress it to hell and back anyway". For just a couple extra bucks, they could have upgraded to a decent preamp and added a few 1/4" jacks for quality audio peripherals like headphones or studio monitors. But the big deal breaker for me on the GoXLR was this: If I'm being encouraged to feed all of my audio through the thing, I need it to be able to handle game audio in 5.1. It's 2020, and this device only handles digital streams in stereo, what gives? Was USB 3.0 too expensive? This whole product reeks of cost-cutting. On the subject of cost-cutting: The Mini version. I get cutting out the voice changer and sampler. Motorized sliders are cool but aren't really necessary. But why did they have to go and cut out the little LCDs for the ASSIGNABLE sliders?

  • SM7B is a workhorse. It's used for broadcast and studio work; I use it for metal vocals and guitar cabinets. At 7:53: You're probably listening to the direct monitor sound in the headphones, this is the sound from the microphone without any effects. Direct monitor sound is for recording without latency, which is critical for performances that need to be on time, such as a studio recording. I don't own a GoXLR but you should be able to also listen to your mic output with FX if you desire.

  • Behringer X18 one of the best investments I ever made, can do the compression, de-essing, gate, etc. Also Reaper, combined with it can do things like dynamic noise reduction and any VST effect you can imagine. I do run a cloud lifter on my SM7B as well but its not needed. But it can do everything the GoXLR can do and more for cheaper with more connectivity. 18 channels that can be routed and controlled. If you are not using it be sure to get the ASIO plugin for OBS so you can use ASIO directly from your mixer.

  • If you pull the CloudLifter, You are going to notice that you are not going to get as much clean gain on the SM-7B. The mic out of the gate is -57dB so you would need to boost your gain to 100 to make it to a good level, but if you do that it's going to induce line noise. Test it out... I think you'll find it sounds better with the CloudLifter. You sound great by the way. Bonus points for you to admit you were wrong! That's a hard thing to do sometimes and I respect your for it!

    PatrickPatrick5 tháng trước
  • Excellent video.. The sound quality is great.. My question for you is did you have to purchase a cloudlifter to boost the gain?

    EJP EntertainmentEJP Entertainment5 tháng trước
  • You absolutely need a cloudlifter for a dynamic microphone, even with the GOXLR. If you remove it from your input chain, you will have serious gain staging issues. This is why I choose to use a condenser over a dynamic mic, but to be fair, I mix vocals for music so it makes more sense for me to have one in my personal use case. It also works great for voice work and streaming, but somebody who is streaming only and not making music, a dynamic mic is probably the better choice. Regardless (and I know I'm late for this update), I'm glad you got it figured out homie. Much respect.

  • you can also use a digital audio splitter if u wanna listen to someone on discord and not have ur viewers hear them on stream, essentially ur creating another audio device for your output so that you can route one of them to discord and one to ur everything else and use the one thats not routed to discord for ur output device that your stream picks up. so that you will be able to hear ur friends because both devices are connected to one set of headphones.
