Home Studio Pipeline: Recommendations?

PostMon Feb 11, 2019 5:15 pm

Hey everyone and thank you for your time,

I've been afforded that opportunity to be able to work remotely more and I am in the need to set up a small operation in my house. Does not have to be much, of course the overhead should be low. I've been reviewing and looking at a lot of the BMD products and I think I know what I need, just thought asking here would help maybe keep me in the right direction.

What I need to do:
- have just 1 mic set up via XLR
- The ability to also grade from home.

What I think I need:
- DeckLink Studio 4K
-Mini Converter Audio to SDI - or - Teranex Mini - HDMI to SDI 12G

I'd use the Decklink to route from the PC to the calibrated monitor
(leaving the actual computer monitor connected via GPU or decklink <- confused by this)

Route the XLR cable to the Mini Converter or Teranex and then SDI that to the Decklink or jus TB3 to the MoBo?

I know having a 4ch mixer should be on the list. I thought maybe in 2019 since it's just for dialogue reads I could bypass that and do it via a GUI.


Does this sound right? Maybe I should just call? Didn't want to waste supports time.

EDIT Also, any thoughts on calibrated monitors and monitors for offline would be great as well! Thanks again!

You will need a preamp for the microphone. Preamp output feeds into the Decklink. You don't need any converters.

Yea, I misread the tech specs. Looks like a Deck link and the Ultra Studio 4k. I believe this can power an XLR mic, no?

Why do you believe that? You need to read the tech specs more carefully. Also the type of mic is important as not all mics need power. What's your experience level with professional audio connections?
