Podcasting: How to Connect Your Microphone, Mixer and Computer

Perhaps the most confusing element of using a mixer is also the simplest: how to connect your recording device (your laptop computer or dedicated digital recorder) to your microphone and the mixer.

Not only does a handheld microphone do a better job of capturing the shades and variations of your voice and ambient sound, they can be set up to reject or cut out unwanted background noise -- a necessity if record podcasts at home.

But time soon comes when the podcaster who has made the minimal investment in either if not both of these types of microphones (dynamic microphones are better for field work, where durability is important) realizes that the best way to hook up to and monitor their microphone import is with a mixer.

Sound mixers from manufacturers like Behringer are priced as low as $45. These simple one-microphone mixers are a good choice for podcasters who rarely if ever has an in-studio guest.

Perhaps the most confusing element of using a mixer is also the simplest: how to connect your recording device (your laptop computer or dedicated digital recorder) to your microphone and the mixer.

An easy way to understand how to connect your microphone, mixer and laptop computer or digital recorder is to consider how the sound of your voice needs to flow from one device to the other.

Imagine that flow of your voice needs to run downhill from one place to another. It needs to run downhill from your mouth to microphone, from your microphone into your mixer, and from your microphone into your laptop or digital recorder.

If the image of your voice flowing downhill from one device to another doesn't work or is too difficult to imagine, imagine that your voice is taking a trip from point A to point B.

Your voice travels from your mouth and into the dynamic or diaphragm microphone you purchased and carefully hooked up to your mixer. It needs to travel down the microphone cable and into your mixer. Thus your mic's cable needs to be plugged into an input jack on the mixer.

Once you've sent your voice into the mixer, you, by twisting two or three if not four very knobs (whose functions are really quite easy to understand) you either alter, sweeten, repair or boost the sound of your voice.

This all happens inside the mixer. In turn, the altered, repaired and sweetened signal of your voice next needs to delivered from your to be recorded by your laptop or desktop computer (and sound recording software) or digital voice recorder. So you need to hook up the main output of your mixer to give your voice a route to travel out of the mixer and into your computer.

Your laptop or desktop computer or digital voice computer is the ultimate recipient of your voice signal. And that's where the flow of your voice ends.

So here's how to set up your microphone, mixer and a laptop or desktop computer or digital voice recorder. Your microphone cord needs to plug into an in jack on your mixer.

This makes sense of course, because your mixer it needs to take in the signal you send into the microphone with your voice. Next place your voice signal needs to go, now that it's been processed by the mixer is out of the mixer and into your laptop or desktop or digital voice recorder.

Here's what you'll need for cables: a cable that runs from your microphone to an input jack on your mixer. This is either a 1/8" male to male cable, ¼" male to male, or XLR male to male, depending on what kind of microphone you bought.

Next you'll need a cable to connect the main output of your mixer to an input jack on your computer, to take your voice out of the mixer and send it into the computer. Again, this is either a 1/8" male to male cable, ¼" male to male, or XLR male-to-male, depending on what kind of microphone you bought.

If you get confused about what goes in where, and what goes out from where into what, keep in mind that your voice needs to enter the mixer, then leave it, then enter your computer or digital recorder.

Simple as this image is and easy as it is to understand, you be surprised by how many podcasters first starting out confused by how to connect their three devices: their microphone, their mixer, and finally their computer or digital recorder.

Most become confused when they fail to recognize that it's the microphone, where everything begins, and the laptop or desktop computer or digital voice recorder, that need to be connected to one another via the intermediary also known as the mixer. The mixer is the halfway point between the start of the voice's trip at the microphone, and the end of the trip at the computer or digital voice recorder.

Using the image of your voice taking a trip from your mouth into the microphone, through the mixer, and out of the mixer and then into your laptop or desktop computer or digital voice recorder will make it that much easier for you to follow the sequence, and make proper choices, between the many input and output jacks on your respective devices. Keeping the image in mind, all you have to do is pay attention to which jacks on your mixer lead in, which jacks lead out, and which jack leads into computer or digital voice recorder.
