    Verify my gear is properly set up

    Setting up audio gear can be tricky. It goes from fairly straightforward “computer mic” to very complex “NPR sound booth”. We are striving for something in between. Most egghead recording gear uses a professional grade microphone, connected to a USB interface with an XLR cable, and finally, the USB interface connects to the computer. Regardless of the specific, we need to verify that it sounds good! In this lesson we show how to keep your audio volume input levels as high in the green as possible without turning red (clipping).
