Recording late at night these days results in comments like, "Huh. I hear crickets."
Me: You bein' funny?
"No, I really hear crickets."
Me: <mute> <unmute>
So, um, fair warning: while my sound editors rock, we might have crickets in the show(s). Both podcasts, even. Damn. And the more I mute, the more noticeable they'll be when I unmute.
**Related, but not really: Any first-hand experience with/suggestions for a standalone mic with an on-board mute button?
