Great advice, Frank! Course Landing Pages are crucial to your success. If it isn't any good, no one will even look at your promos or give your course a chance.

Great audio setup! Something I'm planning to improve for my home studio too. Can you share some details about the hardware that you're using?

Re: Intro from Frank Kane

Sure! The mic is a Shure SM7B, attached to a Rode PSA1 boom arm. The mic goes through a "CloudLifter" device which boosts its gain, and from there it goes into a Mackie ProFX8 v2 mixing board, which is finally connected to my PC.

 

Instead of a mixer, something like a Scarlett 2i2 might be a more compact choice for converting XLR inputs to USB. I just got a mixer because I'm toying with the idea of producing podcasts and live streams later on, with multiple mics and input sources.

This is a new setup for me, and I hadn't quite tweaked its settings yet when making this video. The Shure SM7B is a dynamic mic, so if you're coming from a condensor mic like a Blue Yeti it'll take some getting used to. You need to talk much closer to it, for example, and might want to boost the lows on it a bit.

Yeah, I saw your post about "missing Yeti" Smiley Happy 

I went with Neumann TLM 102. I just love that mic, but it has another issue: it picks up everything. Absolutely everything (more than I want). A cat sneezes on the street and I can hear it through my monitors Smiley Happy

I use Focusrite Clarett that is then going though thunderbolt to PC. I then record the sound in Logic Pro X, I added compression and EQ, so I don't do any post-processing on sound. 

I got the same arm as you have, but I really want to get Yellowtec Mika.

Nice. My wife does pro voice-over work and she has a TLM 103. But we had to convert a closet into a booth covered with acoustic foam for it - it is super sensitive!
