Q. Can I borrow a microphone from the Library at Scotch?
How do I borrow?
Microphones can be borrowed from the Junior/ Middle School Library as well as from the Senior School Library.
If you would like to borrow a microphone, please Send an Email to Library@scotch.wa.edu.au to confirm that one is available. You can also just visit 1 Degree in either the Junior/Middle School or the Senior School, however we cannot guarantee that a microphone will be available.
What can I borrow?
In the the Junior/ Middle School Library, there are numerous Samson Meteor Microphones and a small number of Blue Yeti Microphones.
In the Senior School Library, Samson Meteor Microphones are also available, in addition to some Rode Video Microphones, a Zoom H5 Handy Recorder and a Sennheiser Lavalier Microphone.
Which Microphone should I borrow?
The Samson Meteor and Blue Yeti microphones are suitable for the needs of most people. They are a great choice if you would like to improve the quality of audio recordings made from a computer.
The Rode VideoMic can be attached to a DSLR in order to improve the quality of audio recordings made by the DSLR. It can be very useful if you need to record footage whilst moving or in many locations.
The Sennheisser Lavalier microphone is a great choice if you need to use a more discrete microphone, although this microphone is only suitable for recording one subject. Lavalier microphones are often used when it isn't appropriate to use a stationary microphone and when the subject is far away from the camera.
The Zoom H5 Handy Recorder is a versatile and high quality audio recording tool. It offers connectivity for 1/8" and XLR for recording with more professional microphones. You should only borrow this if you know how to use it.
If you have any questions, feel free to visit 1Degree or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
