I had some audio issues with my 5 year old Blue Yeti recently. It started as occasional small crackles when listening via the headphone output, some of which ended up on recordings as well. It was so occasional that I could edit it out, so I never thought much of it. For the last couple of weeks though, the crackles are now audible during my daily Stardew streams. Again they’re subtle, but I thought perhaps replacing the USB cable might do the trick.
Sadly it did not. Something else must be amiss, so much so that I lost audio completely during the stream today. I replaced the cable again, and it held up for the remainder of the stream, but it looks like I’m in the market for a new Blue Yeti microphone.
My friend sent me an audio message the other day using Quick Voice. Don’t we all miss the old “coming home to check the answer phone” days? One thing that has always fascinated me was the excitement that you didn’t know if there was a message or not.
Then let’s think of a plugin that makes the sound quality “bad” (like analogue hiss with the odd crackle and pop), and use a flash video of a spinning reel-to-reel tape machine.
We could have a site that stores all messages on a server – so log in and hear what people have left you. Make it mobile phone compatibel, and give people the option to attach a phone number and skype-in.
