Hey guys, I am pretty embarrased to have to ask these questions, but you all seem pretty cool, so I figured you wouldn't make too much fun of me for my lack of knowledge. I just got my studio project C1 yesterday, and it came with a wind screen. I have never used a wind screen in the studio, just live. If I am using a pop filter in front of the mic, should I use the wind screen, or is is not neccessary? Stupid question # 2 - What is a shock mount for? Is it stricktly to physically protect the mic, or does it affect the sound at all? Thanks for your help on these.
