  1. For the standard close vocal microphones Shure PGA48 or AKG P5 Large dynamic only thing going is either a cheap Behringer C or the Thomann SC400
  2. I read the first post and said out loud I bet there not plugged in.
  3. Ill give you a sneak peak. Still work in progress but I'm slowly making a audio interface recommendations. This is my medium price section where its above the cheap stuff but not stupidly expensive. Ive cut the meh ones out and only kept decent choices. I still havnt done the high end yet or the strange one of a kind ones like the Go XLR. Regarding mic choice I would go Shure because Im a fan boy for big German brands beginning with S. But might as well coin toss it or if you see one drastically discounted maybe go for that. Also head up big images inside.
  4. You would plug the headphones into the interface. Interface are like sound cards. Plug a USB in the computer then should recognise it as input and outputs like any other audio device. Most have XLR inputs and headphone and speaker outputs (either jack or RCA depending on models), some have Midi. Thats about it.
  5. I think your using mixers for a job they are not design to do. They are supposed to be mixers the USB computer connection is just a extra to record the mix or for sound play back. Its normally a second thought and they don't always work the most logical way. And using them as audio interface can leave some mixed results depending on models. Its also normally a massive waste of money as most people seem to only have two or three inputs yet have a sixteen channel desk. Just wasting money on 10 unused channels. I think youd have more luck with Yamahs mixer interface AG03 and the AG06. They a
  6. aaahhh you got that one. Honestly I dont know in that case. I cant see why just setting your output as Razer Headset in windows wouldnt work and not plugging the razer headset into the GO XLR
  7. Should work fine. The Go XLR has standard jack connections on the back. I cant remeber if the razer headset has two jacks or a combo. So at most you may need a splitter. I probably wouldnt plug the mic in.
  8. Don't think the pop filter will do much for you since none of your problems so far are related to pops caused by speech. Looks like the microphone has a standard mic screw so the screw type stands will work fine. The "hug" type stand not to sure its hit and miss who knows if that will work.
  9. Yeah so if you want those things go for it there just isnt anything doing that and I think youd like the software. If you dont then you can get the same quality audio interface or 100 quid but it just be used for plugging the mic into the computer
  10. Virtual surround sound doesn't need a sound card or specialist equipment. Its just software which most modern games have built into the game engine. The only time you would want a sound card is for surround sound system to give outputs to send audio to different speaker. But most people dont do that as digital audio has become the main thing for surround sound speakers.
  11. Unless you want the extra features of the Go XLR like the software sound effect buttons etc its not worth while. But if you do then there isnt anything which offers that kind of stuff.
  12. Its hard to say if the change in microphone will change much Have you got the microphone in cardioid mode? If you dont do. I think could improve the keyboard noise with microphone positioning. If you can get the keyboard behind the microphone. I think from the stream you got the microphone horisontal?
  13. My only thought would be using professional hdmi cables. The company which springs to mind is Belden they make HDMI cables for the events industry. They have some high end HDMI cables like the Belden Perfect Path 700 can do 4k to over 50 meters but I couldnt verfiy if they would manage the 120Hz. So maybe its worth sending them a email and asking if they have a product which does it. (but it may be expensive a 10m cable is over £100)
  14. Now I know what im listening for Ive noticed the sound in the Twitch stream. didnt notice it first time due to the clapping etc. Im thinking it maybe the RTX nvidia noise affects. Im guessing without having that you get your keyboard problems. Without the RTX stuff do you still get that glitchyness when your loud.
  15. 100% a earth problem. The fact that other electrical devices can affect guarantees that in my mind. The cause can vary from certain electrical equipment or poor wiring. I cant think of a way to solve the problem completely. But I may be able to help with the Aux line. If you search for "Aux ground isolation" and "RCA ground isolation" you should get things which look like this They isolate the ground between devices it may help but it also may not solve the problem. It will most likely make the Aux inputs sound like the optical input. I hope that helps. But the more I rea
  16. I suspect is something to do with shadow play since your friends in game or discord etc dont hear it since the RTX noise reducer thing is applied before the audio is sent to discord fortnite etc. Just to verify my line of thought is it only on the recordings or is it also on the stream? If it is only on recordings id suggest turning the volume down in the show play settings in gefroce audio menus. And if that doesnt help does using other software instead still result in the same problem?
  17. Are you having problems with the motherboards audio? Do you think it doesnt sound right? I don't think your going to gain much benefit over the motherboard. Your Asus motherboard may not be the pinacol of audio quality but at the same time its no slouch. It has a good signal to noise ratio (the only stat they give). Only 10% less then the sound blaster stuff. And at that high of a noise ratio it doesn't desperately matter if its 112dB or 120dB I cant find anything about power the motherboard supplies but the phillips headphones are easy to run with high sensitivities of 100dB @1mw
  18. I think it maybe the recording software side. If the audio sounds fine to your friend the the microphone is clearly working. Since its only when your loud my thought would be that your clipping the recording software. So maybe either turn down the gain in the recording software or maybe add a compressor. Again if you use OBS its in the audio filters section.
  19. Thats a strange sound. Do the people your talking to in the voip also hear that or is it only on the recording and stream?
  20. Sounds fine. I listened through a few previous streams and didn't hear the keyboard once. If it is occasionally a problem maybe use a gate so that when your not talking it doesn't pick up the typing sounds and you seemed like a loud enough person that it wouldn't be noticeable if you were talking. If you use OBS right click on the audio source and go to flitters. Then the add button then noise gate. Then its just tweaking the threshold settings so that when typing on the keyboard the microphone is off but when you talk its on. Another thought is you can get rubber things to go o
  21. Maybe. website looks questionable. They do have paypal payment option which is normally a good sign as paypal is pretty hot on banning fraudulent shops but it could be really new shop and paypal needs a few complaints before they drop the ban hammer. Beyond the fact ive never heard of them and the only review ive found is also the guy in all of the photos and there quite expensive id probably not buy them.
  22. Theres a thing call the noise floor which is the background noise electronics create. The gain has to be high enough that its above that. So the simple answer is gain as high as needed but equalish across most equipment. The headphone amp will probably have the lowest noise floor so will be easier to have that lower on gain settings. While the mixer Im guessing is probably something cheap like a Behringer Xynx will have a high noise floor so the gain will have to be higher. Set the gain on the mixer to as high as it has to be to get a decent signal. Set the output volume of the mixer h
  23. Wow that's really expensive I'm presuming in America. I'm in the UK and you can get custom in ears from as low as £250 and can get your ear moulded for around £100 which is in total about $450. I suspect the price difference is due to the NHS as most ear moulds are done for hearing aids so the training and equipment is paid by the NHS so when you need to do it privately it doesn't cost a fortune as your only paying for time.
  24. You seem to have bounce through quite a few IEMs have you thought of getting custom in ears made. The best way to get good low end in IEMs is a good seal and fit to the ear.
  25. If the use case it just video games or chatting with friends on discord etc. With a low budget of 50 to 100 dollars your not going to be able to afford much. You would be looking at the lowest quality equipment. If the use case is just PC gaming discord etc just get a USB mic no need to waste money on XLR equipment as it doesn't make the microphone any better. Shure MV5 and Rode NT USB mini are around 100 dollars and are very good USB mics for PC gaming and VOIPs. If your use case is musical, so singing instruments etc. Then getting a interface is a worth while idea as you can use it t
