Dynamic mic with both XLR + USB functionality. Record with any standard interface, mixer, or recording device, or plug directly into your computer, iPad, or iPhone.
The classic world-renowned live vocal mic. Normally meant for the stage, the SM58 provides quality sound that is focused on your voice, not the room.
The #1 broadcast mic. In most cases the 7B will require a preamp for optimum sound.
Mic/headset combo, for extreme ease of use, especially for guests and for on-the-road recording.
For recording around a conference table or desk where you will be in close proximity to the table. Note: the base is heavy, which makes these more difficult to travel with.
For longer, extended reach. These can be clamped onto the side of the desk, or drilled and secured directly into the desk. (A cheaper option can be found here).
For comfortable seating, including couches and chairs, these stands will give you the reach you need.
These are more flimsy than the normal tabletop stands, but fold up nicely for easier travel.
For many reasons, we recommend a hardware recording solution vs. a software solution. This removes your computer from causing any potential issues with your recording (slow HD, behind on updates, audio latency, etc.). Because of this, the Zoom H6 is hands-down the best recording option for podcasters.
If a software recording solution is truly where your heart leads you, such as Pro Tools or Adobe Audition, then we recommend the series of Scarlett audio interfaces from Focusrite.
NOTE: We have not yet had the opportunity to properly test the Rodecaster Pro.
‘Cans’ are imperative to podcast recordings, so that you and any guests or co-hosts can hear everything that’s being recorded.
If you have a single co-host or guest (read: 2 people total) you can use this headphone splitter.
For any more than 2 people recording in the same room, a headphone amp will be necessary to route your monitoring signal to 3-4 people simultaneously. (You also need this cable).
The Zoom H6 records on SD cards, and it’s always a good idea to have a few extra lying around.
