Create a portable microphone insorisation in less than a minute!
What you need:
- a mic with a holder (this one is the Blue Snowball, I think today is 70$ on Apple/Amazon)
- an old pillow or a big sponge or anything that reduce the sound when you bring it near your ear
- a cardboard box of a medium size (depending on the size of the mic + holder)
That's all you need. Now let's make the obvious ;)
Step 1: Create All the Stuff!
Take your pillow/sponge/whatever and put it into the cardboard box. Mine fits perfectly because I choose a box based on the size of my sponge.
Put the mic+holder into the box and close the sound-blocker material around the mic as possible. Plug the mic cable and you're ready to go!
I know it's not a big project but I needed a thing like that for a long time and I've tried different solutions, some of them were very tricky. This one is the most compact and ready-to-go I've built.
I hope this should help someone =)
