This sound quality of this podcast is an improvement over my first now that I'm using a professional microphone, although it was a challenge to complete the reading since I'm just recovering from a cold where I lost my voice last week. After having read Jake Ludington's article titled, Create Podcasts Using Your PC, I decided that the toy microphone that had sitting around wasn't going to cut it and I would need something better. I used his article on creating a podcasting kit as a guideline.

I purchased a microphone and a pre-amp at a Guitar Center in Natick for a much better price than anywhere online. I couldn't find a cheap mini compressor anywhere so I decided to opt out of that. The service at Guitar Center was great a gentleman named Alain explained everything I would need to know from how to use a pre-amp to which buttons to push and where to plug in the various wires.
