NOTE: The change in the needed amount reflects the change in pricing of the MacBook Pro.
What you see in the picture, taken at Netroots Nation 2013, is what I am currently using to host my podcasts/radio show and record my voice overs. The rig is made up of an iPad, iRig Mic and that's it. It's decent, but it's limited to what it is capable of doing and what I need to be doing. I cannot do audio-posting or be more interactive with guests on my show if they are not in the same room with me. .
That's why I am turning to you.
I am in desperate need of upgrading my existing home/portable recording studio. I lost the bulk of my studio when I was hospitalized last year, along with my apartment in New Jersey. I now need to replace the gear, and I'm turning to you my friends to help me. As you know, I am undergoing chemotherapy, and so have been unable to continue in my job, which has cut quite deeply into my income. As you can see by the wish list, I am asking for nothing more than what my old studio consisted of. The macbook is necessary due the age and condition is considered vintage and no longer repairable or upgradeable application-wise. Not too bad for a laptop that survived a few years of working homelessness.
The rest of the gear is required for me to continue developing my Voice Over career, live radio, audio post-production, and podcasting
