I started in this field less than a year ago just to make my own page and share with some friends. I came a long long way in this short period of time, I am proud of myself.

comment Small Kitchen studio setup
Also the idea of the bogen arms is good but also consider a gooseneck if more flexibility (and cost) is needed.

comment Small Kitchen studio setup
Yeah, I was going to recommend Go pros for the top shots too. Now, an idea: if you mount a computer fan (prob a 80mm one) 90 degrees off the camera itself and blowing across it, wouldn't it avoid any problems the steam will cause otherwise? I would recommend a lav too, since you are going to be moving around and eventually be talking against your main camera.

comment Preventing audio clipping on inexpensive lapel mics
Considering now that the distortion is in the recorder, it grabs my attention that it does so since both devices are the same brand and Olympus more than likely made them to work in a set up like the one you are doing. I would recommend to talk to the Olympus team and see if we are missing something (I didn't find any reference in the manual).

comment Best way to output two streams, and add lower thirds keying to one stream?
I think you shouldn't, it can take some time for the operator to get used to the 'new' flow of work but it's worth it, specially if you are only working with only one output. However, if you are still nervous about it, I don't think the idea of using a Mac mini is any ideal. I would use a Folsom switcher instead, but the price is too high compared to that of a computer.

Now, why don't you use the AVhs400 keying capability and store that output?

take into account the latency problems you had before!!! the mixer will not do anything against that.

but it will depend on how the computer behalves. The long latency was a problem before, so I think he prefers to do monitoring with analog gear before hitting the interface.

The other thing you can do is to set a few aux outputs from the mixer you already have. How many channels you record at the same time? Forget about the 1402: it has no direct outs. The 2404 would cover your monitor issue completely and you can find something used for about $700. But the problem will arise again if you need to do overdub (latency from the prerecorded tracks).

comment How do I mute my monitors while leaving headphones on?
in just one or two RU? hmmm, nothing comes to my mind. Now I have question for you: can't you do what you want via software? what recording software are you using? Now analyzing again the setup, a mixer wouldn't be any good. Unless you use it taking all the outputs from the ART. Let's say you have mains in outputs 1/2, drums in out 3, guitars in 4 ans so on. You can have those coming into a Mackie 1402 and 'solo'those channels to hear in your headphones. But that's NOT worth it ($400 for a monitoring device?). Again, let me know what software you are working with, so I may be more useful.
