Epidemic Sound

Epidemic Sound is one of the easiest to use, all inclusive music library that features thousands of artists. I used them for sound effects for #TeamSeas Cash Cube Challenge or within my stinger for all the interviews in my podcast. Not to mention my latest view with the CMO from Morpheus Data, Brad Parks. Check out the intro!

Epidemic Sound Library

Whether you are looking for Cartoon sound effects, Stingers, Music from a specific Genre, or in a particular mood, Epidemic Sound has it all.

Their pricing and licensing model is straight forward and they have everything you need to take your content to the next level.

The best part is that there isn't any long term commitments. If you post a video using music from Epidemic and decide you no longer want to continue with them, you can cancel and you still own the rights to the posted video. Meaning, you don't have to take down the video! How cool is that?

Maybe it's time to up your game and add some music or sound to your content! Don't miss out!

Movo SPR-5 Metal Smartphone Video Rig

While I was out in Las Vegas for AWS re:invent 2021 I used the following Video Rig for my new iphone 13 Pro!. It isn't a gimbal that automatically levels itself or you can move it around with a button. Attach your phone or device to the very secure clamps, put the strap on your wrist, just in case you might drop it. It has so many options to attach additional devices or accessories, including a Rode Mic, lighting, or even a tripod.

Movo SPR-5 Metal Smartphone Video Rig

This SanDisk was perfect for storing and capturing 4k 24fps of images while at an AWS Conference. I used my Sony a6400 as my video camera setup in my hotel for recording 2 vlogs a day.

Pixel UHF Wireless Lavalier Microphone System

The Pixel wireless mic transmitters are perfect for the price compared to the RodeGO wireless transmitters. I've had a lot of success using this system. From recording interviews, to video content to LIVE streaming events with my BlackMagic ATEM Mini Pro ISO.

See the link below for an adapter for your iPhone.

Hint: Make sure to use the right cable between camera and iphone. I learned that the hard way when I hooked up the camera cable to my iphone and it didn't capture the audio.

Hint: Make sure to use the right cable between camera and iphone when using the Pixel UHF Wireless Microphone System.

Rode VideoMic GO Lightweight On-Camera Microphone with Integrated Rycote Shockmount

The Rode shotgun microphone is so worth it when using my Sony a6400 camera, or even my iphone 13 pro with the Movo video rig above. Delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Rode designed the videomic go with a tight pickup area that focuses directly in front of the mic. Reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from background noise.

Awesome Podcasting Mic for the studio or traveling

I recently purchased this new Rod NT-USB for use in my home studio but boy did it work out great for traveling. Easy to setup, connect, and travel ready, especially for those recording trips in a hotel room or on the expo floor.

MacBook Vertical Laptop Stand out there!

I was looking for more room on my desk since I need to have two laptops on it (don't ask). After searching around and reading the reviews I decided to take a change on this stand. At first, I was a little skeptic that the wide opening would hold my laptop upright but it's perfect. Once you put it into the stand, the sides close in automatically holding the laptop in place.
