So I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do this Halloween, and I decided I want to do something I did about 20 years ago:
Sit out front with a dark hooded cowl on
The table in front of me has a tablecloth and a single candle on it
Under the cowl I have a headset microphone on that is connected to “some method” of dropping my voice by an octave
It does wonders for scaring the kids.
A long time ago, I did this by somehow jury-rigging a headset mic that a friend provided to my Roland GP-16 (and using an expression pedal to shift my voice up and down a full octave). For some reason I can’t figure out the levels on the headset mic I now own.
It works if I plug it into my computer directly. But if I try to plug it into the GP-16 I get nothing. Same result if I try my Tascam US-144.
I know this is a voltage level issue, but I’ll be damned if I can find the expected level of a mic jack on a PC so that I have some way of debugging this. So I’m turning to you all since you’re the experts and I’m just a newbie.
Help save Halloween!
