I got to to do an on-site #podcast #recording for a client last week so I had to pack up my mics and interfaces into my camera bag, which was a fun 3D puzzle for me to find the best way to get everything in the building in one trip.
Here’s what’s in my bag: - 2009 17” MacBook Pro (yep, it still works great since I put an SSD in it - it’s my secondary portable computer to my iMac 5K), PC Card slot SD card reader, power cord, and portable laptop stand (to reduce heat and prevent loud fans from spinning up) - @audientworld iD14 USB mic pre and power supply - @shure MOTIV MVi USB mic pre (as backup and optional 3rd mic input) - @ultimateearspro UE7 custom in-ear monitors - @tascampro TH-MX2 and CAD MH210 headphones (for podcast host and guest) - @monoprice 4-channel headphone amplifier and power supply - @shure SM7B, Beta87a, and SM58 50th Anniversary Edition - @telefunken_mics M80 - Popperblocker pop filters (inside each mic grille) and Windtec windscreen - 32GB SD card for recording session files (as an alternate external disk) - various USB and audio cables - @warbyparker Seymour glasses and case
Not pictured going in the backpack (out of frame): - @leathermantools Wave multitool with screw bit attachments (I never do any gig without my leatherman) - 1TB external USB3 hard drive, 64GB USB3 thumb drive, and additional USB SD card reader
Not pictured in addition to backpack items: - 3 mic stands, 2 music stands, and velcro ski shoulder carriers - 3 25’ mic cables, power strip with 15’ cord, and “The Mommy Hook” (for carrying cable coils hooked to backpack straps) - 2 king size fleece blankets and clamps in a duffle to use as portable acoustic panels if needed
