    His audio setup actually sucks.. he’s talking into the wrong side of the mic and a Behringer mixer? I think this one doesn’t even has phantom power wich is needed for a at2020... oh boi

    It is a side address microphone, but the mixer has phantom power. It's actually not terrible for what he's doing with it.
