Find the Audio Equipment you Need for Podcasting
Podcasting is a relatively new art, having come about near the end of the 90’s, and now virtually anyone can do it so long as they have access to the right equipment. Figuring out what that equipment is and what you need to do to get access to it can be a challenge, but we’ve taken the liberty of putting together two great examples of USB audio interfaces that will help you to get started in style. Best of all, they’re not extremely expensive, which is great news for your wallet.DJ mixer equipment is critical, especially when it comes to podcasting; don’t pass up the best. Let’s take a quick look at the two different options and get your show on the road
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface
The first thing that we want to say is that Focusrite wouldn’t know how to disappoint us even if we provided it written instructions explaining exactly how to do so. We’ve been using and selling their products for years without so much as a single complaint from either side, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that it’s sitting front and center at the top of our list here. Today we’re talking about the Scarlett 2i2 which has plenty of benefits for both the highly seasoned and novice digital DJ. First of all, 2 diverse inputs. Each input has a highly regarded Focusrite mic preamp with even gain and also features two instrument inputs that can handle hot guitar pick-ups. In other words, it’s ready to go right out of the box and there’s little doubt that it can handle whatever you have to throw at it.
Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone
Audio-Technica has also long been known for developing some of the greatest online Recording solutions and the AT2020 is certainly no exception. This is a condenser mic , and we have to say that the price and performance are phenomenal. For the pod caster on the go, this is one of the best solutions that we have found, and it is also outstanding for home-studio applications. The unit itself features high SPL handling along with a wide dynamic range with unmatched versatility.
In addition to that, the low-mass diaphragm is able to bring extended frequency response along with a greater transient response than most other products on the market. It is also able to easily isolate a desired sound source using a cardioid polar pattern, meaning you can eliminate other sounds from the background with ease. If you are in a home studio and don’t have access to a soundproof booth, then this is definitely going to be the direction you want to go – there’s nothing more annoying than background noise when you are trying to run a podcast, and this microphone does a stellar job of eliminating that problem. Now would be a great time to take a look at it and see if it fits into your show. We’re going to bet that it does.
To put it quite simply, while podcasting is something that nearly everyone can do, not everyone has access to the best equipment. That being the case, you need to put some time and money into not only becoming the best, but making sure that your voice is properly heard. In all honestly, people aren’t going to listen to you if your voice is distorted or if you have tons of background noise.
If you want to become an authority if your niche, then it’s time to invest in the best equipment and make sure you’re able to reach your audience in the way you desire. It doesn’t matter if you’re covering the latest art show or running the resistance radio, it’s all about presentation and if you look through our store, you’re going to find that we have some of the best digital mixers, recording equipment, and mixer DJ equipment. We’re here for you every step of the way.
