Many of you know that I recently started a new website and podcast with fellow blogger and friend, Don Jackson of DaddyNewbie.com. The podcast, Dad Spotlight speaks to parenting and all of the things that we deal with on a daily basis and I have to say that Don and I are having a blast thus far.
Getting this podcast off the ground took some time and we had to do a lot of research to get it right. Many people talk about the importance to just get it up and going, and I would have to agree, but Don and I also agreed that we wanted to have the structure and equipment in place to get a good sound that would bring people back again and again.
So we spent time, researched items and purchased items. We found what we needed, and what we did not need, and we are still learning a lot about this even today.
One of the things recently that I have come to find is that having only one microphone for one location just does not cut it, and having to transport my primary microphone with me wherever I go just makes no sense. That being said I was excited to work with Samson to try out a few items to set up a more mobile studio per se that allows me to record on the go, get a great recording and sound for playback too.
Samson provided me with two great items, the and the .
As Samson States about the Two:
Featuring state of the art sound processing technology and a solid all metal zinc die cast construction, the Meteor M2 pushes the boundaries of volume and sound quality for compact speakers. According to Ask Audio Magazine: “These speakers produce far more bass than speakers of this size should have the right to.” The perfect gift for the avid Netflix watcher, gamer or music freaks, the Meteor M2 provides a true stereo soundscape.
Samson‘s Meteorite is the universal solution for capturing high-quality recordings on your computer. Meteorite is ideal for podcasting, creating audio for YouTube videos and recording music on your favorite software or apps. This sleek microphone will also vastly improve your ability to communicate with friends, family and business associates on programs like Skype, FaceTime and other VoIP software.
So I decided to set this up at home as a mobile studio and see what it would take to create a way to do the podcast from there (instead of in the studio environment itself). Granted, I did this without the kids around to keep the noise down. That being said, I have to say that first off, the set up was easy and seamless. There were no issues and the computer immediately accepted everything.
First off- lets start with the microphone. This small microphone takes up so little space, but it picks up a ton of sound and really provides high quality for recording purposes. I loved how the microphone simply sits in the magnetic cradle ans wirelessly connects to the base – talk about high-tech! The audio quality for the microphone was very clear and I had a hard time noticing a difference between this and my other microphone, except for the fact that I did not have a wind screen in front of this one as I do for the other one that I own.
For the price for how small this microphone was I was very impressed with the microphone itself. You get a ton of power in the petite size of this microphone!
The speakers were so retro! I loved the sleek design and the look and feel of them. They are heavy duty and provide you with amazing sound. I was really impressed with the overall design and quality of these speakers and they were such a step up from what I had used in the past. While I was not using these primarily for music, I did try them with a CD or two and found the bass to be amazing and the treble to rock as well.
Both of these products offered so much more than I expected and for the price they were a very good value and would allow you to easily set up a mobile studio for yourself in no time!
If you would be interested in purchasing these, you can find them on Amazon through the (Aff) links below!
Have you used Samson products in the past? If so, which ones and what was your experience? If not, what are you using for microphone or speakers in your own home?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
