39617Re: [podcasters] that phone interview question again
- Feb 12, 2010What type of phone do you have? I have a droid (with a headphone out jack).
I got a cord at radio shack and went from my phone out to a channel on my
board (a few connectors to go 1/8" to 1/4") and now I can add bass and trele
to the phone and control the volume with my mixer. I just talk into the
phone and my microphone. The output of the mixer goes into the computer, or
in my case a Zune H4.
The other alternative is Skype out where you can call people's phones. I
still get their phone number (as Skype can get weird too) you might have
some "can you say that again - skype cut out moments).
