Louis has been doing a medical show on YouTube for about ten years. The show, Geeky Medics, highlights medical issues for caregivers including bedside manner. But he's having issues where the mic is picking him up behind the camera. What kind of boom arm should he get? Leo says that there are a lot of really good ones out there. Leo recommends watching Alex Lindsay's Office Hours Video Podcast.
Rich is an audiobook narrator, and he records huge files on his Mac Mini. Should he record to an external hard drive, rather than the internal drive? Leo says that is just silly. The SSD has wear levelling that keeps it in a safe condition and the reliability isn't an issue. They also have error correction built in. So it will be just as fine to record to the internal drive than an external drive. Thunderbolt 3 is also just as fast as the internal drive, so either one will work. And professional grade professional software will ensure no errors happen.
Walter would like to connect his iPad to his stereo and record music. Leo says that's doable if he gets the right cable. He'll want a four ring cable and the software that can handle the audio signal. It needs to be a stereo audio in, and lightning out. Walter should check out the Griffin StudioConnect. He could also check out BlueMic.com.
