03/31/2016: Storytime Pup: - How it all started (Part V). Sounds Good To Me.

     With the video and lighting equipment received and tested, it was time to move on to the last important piece for successful videos.  We needed to create high quality audio.  So, I started to research what microphones were being used by some of the top Youtube channel creators.  There are many different microphones used.  But one seemed to stand out as one of the top choices, that being the Blue Yeti microphone by Blue Microphones.  It is a professional grade USB microphone giving studio-quality results.  And it was priced well for the quality.  So, I ordered the Blue Yet Blackout.
     I received the microphone about a week later.  I was extremely pleased with the quality of the microphone.  I downloaded the Audacity audio recording and editing suite.  It is open source software and comes highly recommended as well.  I ran some tests and everything worked and sounded just great.  That is until I upgraded to Windows 10.  Suddenly Windows wasn't recognizing the Yeti microphone any longer.  I Googled the problem and sure enough, it is a common issue. There are some fixes, but I have yet to get one to work and stay working.  I am still working this issue.  If worse comes to worse, I will do the audio recording on an alternate computer.  We have three computers for the Storytime Pup Channel.
