Today I went downtown. I bought an extra USB cable, and an embroidery hoop. I will use the USB cable to extend my mic's cable, so that it's easier to record sounds from my electroc guitar while the mic is plugged into the computer. The cable in the pic is 5 metres long. Then, when I came home, I found a similar cable that is like 3 metres or so. So when I put those together, I'll have at least 8 metres of extra cable! Perfect for when I want to record other sounds, auch as in the kitchen or bathroom. (If I ever wish to do that.)
On the right in the pic is the embroidery hoop. I will use it to make my own pop filter (necessary when recording voice). All I'll need is the hoop and some pantyhose. Found this tip on YouTube. I'll make sure to post that video later! Much cheaper than buying a pop filter.
