#014 – Patience and Comparison to Others

Music Production Made Simple Podcast

This episode is inspired by my own mistake, while also noticing on-going trends within the social industry.

It’s really easy to compare yourself to others, but this will burn you out so fast, and make you quickly forget why you started creating music in the first place!

My blunder was recording a whole course, and the audio wasn’t salvageable!

I tried recording with a lavalier microphone (like discussed in Episode #013), and even did a test recording prior to committing to record the whole course.

I have now learned, a lavalier microphone (those small microphones you see clipped onto people’s shirts in videos), require much LESS phantom power voltage than the regular +48V on our audio interfaces.. Typically lavalier microphones take 5V!!!! That’s why it was distorted.. I fried the microphone lol (Good thing it was a cheap one!)

When I went to go edit the course, I was sad 🙁

However, as you’ll hear in the podcast, this made me search for new solutions to achieve high quality audio, but not see my microphone, since I’m now using a green screen in my courses to allow for a more personal feeling to the courses!

This just reminded me to have patience, and silly mistakes can be made, even after being in an industry for many years!
