Just ordered this thing.

Laptop Computer PC USB 2.0 6 Channel 5.1 External Audio Sound Card Win7/XP/98 - Newegg.com

As it stands, the sound from my primary computer output goes to the secondary computers LINE IN and then the secondary computer adds it's own sound and sends it to the speakers. All great and dandy however I'm getting buzzing.
The plan is to run spdif from my main computer to my secondary computer (secondary doesnt have spdif IN so that's why i got this sound card). I'm hoping it will finally get rid of the annoying buzzing from the crappy realtek sound card.

I had a sound blaster Extigy back in the day

It did a great job at getting my laptop audio out to a 5.1 speaker system while also providing a way to input and combine PS2 audio in my college dorm room.

Re: your computer issue, is it a laptop? If not, then why not just put in a real sound card?

I think I might still have an extigy in my shed next to my 3.5" floppy disks.

Its a desktop. The reason why not is because PCI sound cards that have spdif in go for 80-100 bucks or so. This toy is 12.99.

Definitely snowball if you're on a budget... IMO if I were to do the at2020 I'd get a adjustable arm to mount it from the back of the desk, shock mount, and screen.

If I recall the snowball has 3 different modes of which it picks up audible noise from.

Is this for twitch streaming?

I bought one of these recently and dig it. Not a big condenser microphone fan for my desk. Takes up too much space and you really need to be close for them to work well.

The snowball ain't bad. There are purists who reject it, but we use 'em at the TV station for a lot of simple work, and I have one at home that I use when I get voiceover work.

Any cheap mixers that can feed the at2020? The q502 looks alright but it's only 15 volt mic output so not sure how well that will work.

Also standing desk?

Why the heck do you need a USB mixer? Does such a thing even exist? I mean, you plug the thing into the PC, and use the mixer that's part of whatever sound card / device you have, no?



Unrelated bragging:

Having 24 GB of RAM on your i7-6700 is nice. The on-board graphics are failboat, but I don't do any 3d work on this machine, nor do I use Aero. Despite having a good deal less CPU power than my former dual-Xeon machine, it's just as snappy, and never gets swap-bound.

The at2020 is an XLR mic and you either need a phantom power supply or you can get a mixer that will power the XLR mic (most have phantom power) That mixer is can have usb output to the computer or you can have it via the 3.5mm jack however unless you have a good sound card on your computer you will get buzzing because realtek onboard audio is ****..

Ok, so you just need a preamp. I thought you were trying to externally mix in the USB domain.

Here. $30, with 48v phantom:

Yes RAM means a lot. 32GB but ONLY a i5-4670 EDIT: Should also add AMD Radeon R9 380 video card.

The USB connection will connect to my win 7 pc since thats my recording device, the second output will go into my main win 10 pc as a mic. That way I can use the same mic for both PCs.

Also just ordered a stand and a at2020 mic.
