Possible New Musical Intro?

I’ve been trying to find mics that I can use with my phones. This has proved problematic. Perhaps I’ll switch gears and go for USB mics and use my laptop to record. I didn’t want to mainly because I felt like I wouldn’t have a backup option then. Perhaps one of my phones without a mic as the ’emergency backup’?

At any rate, since I wasn’t making any headway with that, I stepped sideways and worked on some intro music. I downloaded beat lab for Chrome a while back and took some time going through some existing tunes, selected one to remix, then did just that.

What do you guys think? Does this work for a musical intro?

    I have had good success with the Blue Tiki USB mic.

      Good info!

      For Jarnsaxa Rising can I ask how you guys set up the recording? Did you just place the mic centrally while everyone did their parts all at once (ie – like a live play) or did you record each part solo with the individual performer close to the mic?

    Don’t use your phone. You’re better off with a USB mic and your laptop.

      Yeah, I had pretty much resolved myself to not just using my phone(s). It would save me a lot of effort / baggage, but I fear the sound quality wouldn’t be high enough.

      I’m considering the USB mic thing, but I’m hearing interview style podcasters fear things like software crashes and the like during the interview process. Thus, this has become my fallback position. Possibly a back up.

      What I’m mainly looking into now is something like the Zune H4N and a pair of dynamic mics.

      Certainly more bulky, which in my world could be painful, but I might be able to keep it slim enough to still work.
