I am currently recording a fortnightly radio show from home DIY style, usually I do it from my local station (shout out to Brum Radio) but it’s not that easy for obvious reasons at the moment. I have noted a few DJ’s on here talking about radio at home etc.
I use a Xone 62, 2 turntables and 2 CDJ’s. I also use a AKG-P3 microphone. Then I’ll record out of my amp with a Tascam DR-05. It all feels a bit People Just Do Nothing at the moment but I was wondering if anyone had some tips on microphones or a good Dynamic Mic, the P3 is for backing vocals so that could be an issue. It seems that the mic levels are a lot quieter than the audio inputs. Any thoughts why ? I have noticed my microphone is just at the top end of low impedance. My mixer cannot take a condenser mic as it does not host phantom power. I’ve messed with the EQ but both levels for mic/CDJ and turntables are not matched.
Any tips ? What kit are people using ?
