lol, got mine from the garage this morning, needed two new wheel bearings, at least I got them quite cheap because the garage missed the 2cm play both wheels had when they serviced the car last week
And yes, I went round the Ring like that (thought the noise came from my new summer tires :shy
iPhone dead, so i needed a stopgap, free handset and a budget t-mobile contract of £15.50 a month, plus my 3 contract sim from the iphone works in it so i still have my unlimited data, its more than adequate until my 3 upgrade in october.
No I haven't used any USB mics, no experience with them at all. I would say if you've got a dedicated audio interface already it would make more sense to buy a standard condenser. Otherwise if you want to keep to a tight budget maybe a USB mic would be a good way to go. Overall I think if you're gunning for a professional sound it would be a better idea to get a decent audio I/O box (MOTU, or even M-Audio or similar) and at least one quality mic, but it depends what you want to spend.
Cool, my dad bought one too - his had the issue where the left side of the glass is sticking up out of the casing slightly, also had a stuck pixel right in the lower middle of the screen lol.. He's returned it for another one..
It's a nice tablet though, just a shame about the build quality.
I bought the behringer C1-U (USB) and it's a great mic. The signal is really low though. Behringer say it allows for more head room, but I think that's an excuse. When I record with it, I have to add so much volume to boost the playback.
I would recommend getting a condensor mic in XLR flavour and use a simple mixing board with phantom power. you will get much better results.
It's inevitable with first batch electronics. The only fault I found with mine is a twitchy backlight, which has been confirmed with a bunch of people and may be fixed with a software update, so I can't complain.
