  1. Hi Dave! It was super interesting to learn more about your hands-on experience using the Procaster Rode – or what the heck it’s called! One mean machine anyway, it seems. Another thing: when Jim called in, you mentioned his audio sounded like – eh – a phone call. I kinda figured it sounded like a *very* low quality phone call 🙂 Some time ago, I interviewed a journalist who was traveling by train in southern Sweden; the main idea was to run a regular YouTube Live HOA but it turned out (no big surprise) that there just wasn’t enough bandwidth for that. So, plan B: a (cell) phone call that I patched into the HOA. It worked fine and I must say that the audio quality of that phone call – even though I extracted the audio from the YouTube Live recording that is always automagically processed in mysterious ways – was way, way better than Jim’s. If you feel like having a real blast by listening to some reasonably fluent Swedish, you can do it here:
    P.S. I’m aware that Jim routed his phone call through Google – initiating it from Gmail – and I’d think that, by doing this, bad things happen to audio quality. Hopefully, the standard US phone call audio is better than this 🙂

    • I agree, I had my ex call me and we went from phone to phone and it still sounded like a phone, but not so much like a phone under water.
