Did a test setup this morning for using the large-screen TV station for Skype video-conferencing, using my cheapo camera, one of the Apex condenser mics and one of the Art mic pres. This is the setup and settings that worked best:
- Mic on boom stand projecting into the middle of the table, but not touching the table.
- Mic set low-cut filter on, level attenuation off, directionality omni (right position).
- Mic via XLR to Art Pre, with these settings:
- Gain: 20dB
- Pad +20dB
- Phantom power: on
- Comp threshold: 0
- Slope: Comp
- Speed: Auto
- Phase: Norm
- Output: +4
- The Pre is going out through mono 1/4" TS through a female-to-female 1/4" TS to an ancient home-made 1/4" TS to 1/8" TS, and then into the sound card.
