I used to work at a radio station while I went to college. I loved broadcasting. My dad really encouraged my love of radio. He got me my first microphone when I was a kid. The microphone had a built-in FM transmitter and I could transmit my voice to any radio nearby. This was pure magic to my four-year-old mind. I started podcast over 10 years ago and lately, I have been incorporating my four-year-old. George has been a regular co-host and he has injected even more silliness and excitement. My dad did it again. For Christmas 2021, he bought me the microphone that I used at the radio station that I worked at: the Electro-Voice RE27N/D broadcast microphone.
The Electro-Voice RE27N/D mic needs a control interface to make it work with your PC and recording software. After checking out two different interfaces, I selected the Elgato Wave XLR. The Wave XLR amplifies the small signal of the microphone, makes it easy to mix different audio signals, and has enough boast for monitoring with headphones.
