The Best Mobile Podcasting Equipment to Record on the Go

equipment Mar 30, 2021

If you’re reading this, then you’re likely interested in taking the leap of faith and trying your hand at podcasting. For that, I say “Hell yeah!” All success begins with curiosity, and by nurturing that “What if?” question, your curiosity will take you places in no time.

First off, let’s cover the obvious: You need a device to record audio, but why not just use your phone? See, phone quality audio may sound good through the phone’s speakers, but once you take a closer listen, you’ll soon realize that the sound quality has left much to be desired. Phone cameras have rapidly advanced in quality over the past 15 years (with directors using them to shoot feature-length films, no less), but the audio quality is still light years away from passable in any other setting except calling your grandma. So, what to do?

Sound recorders to the rescue! The beauty of sound recorders is that they can double as microphones AND recorders for...

equipment Mar 30, 2021

This goes without saying, but in a world where we feel less connected than ever, video and podcasts have been crucial for helping us feel heard and informed.  Whether you’re reconnecting with family, recording your new podcast, or participating in a work video conference, video is THE way to stay locked into others without breaking any social distancing.

Here, I’m going to break down TWO high-quality webcams that showcase why a webcam may be the key to integrating more video to fuel your passion AND personal life. They’re an affordable, compact, and easy-to-use intro into the world of video, and sometimes that first step is the hardest. However, not all webcams are created equal, so it’s crucial to find a beautiful blend of quality and price, and I think you’ll see the value in these next two fighters.

The Best Preamps for Podcasts

equipment Mar 30, 2021

If you’re looking to up your podcasting game, you’ve come to the right article, my friend. So, assuming that you’ve already invested in a high-quality mic and recorder, what’s the next logical step? Enter stage (or channel) left: Audio interfaces. In short, the purpose of an audio interface is to maximize the sound quality of your devices, be able to effectively hear the sound you’re recording, and efficiently implement all your sound into software to make it a breeze to export.

Recording a podcast with only computer mics or a sound recorder is entirely possible, and most start there. However, if you have at least one XLR mic and/or multiple people talking on your podcast, then you owe it to yourself and your listeners to invest in an audio interface that will streamline the recording AND exporting processes. Today, I’m covering TWO models of interfaces from the killer Focusrite Scarlett series: The 2i2 and 18i8 models.

First up, we have the ...

All You Need to Know About Pop Filters, Windscreens, and Shock Mounts

equipment Mar 29, 2021

What’s the secret to amazing quality audio? You got it - pop filters, windscreens, and shock mounts! Now, some might argue those things work quite similarly but believe it when I say they don’t. I will breakdown their unique features, so you’ll understand how they are different from one another.

Pop Filters

Pop filters are netting equipment designed to filter certain types of prominent sounds that you want to do away with. They cannot get rid of all the unwanted sounds you wish to eliminate. What it can do is filter those that are evidently distracting like heavy breathing and the popping sounds created when you hold the mic close.

It is important to have good quality pop filters. Consider these key features when you’re looking to get one:

  1. The mesh or net should be properly attached and connected to the mic stand.  This is important to avoid unnecessary clattering sound when they fall out of place.
  2. Match the size of the pop filter with the size of the...
