MY NEW OFFICE – Part 4 – Managing the microphone positioning and acoustics for my YouTube and Video Production ventures is the primary motivation for this office move, and this spot here was chosen specifically for the positioning of the microphone. Let’s talk about that, in this video.

This little mini-series will also talk a lot about my setup, and how/why i use what I use every day to produce content. For the beginner YouTubers out there, I believe this series will have enormous value. For the veterans that have already mastered the ways of digital media… well, maybe you’ll find it mildly interesting.

Thank you so much for watching. I don’t know how often these videos will post, and I’m sure it’ll be an evolving project to get things as I want them here in this (less than idea, but still better than what I had before) space.
