Despite some outdated feel to it, podcasts are thriving as a personal and marketing promotion channel. In order to fully utilize the power of podcasts, you should consider using high quality equipment. As expected, such equipment can be costly, so the choice will be a compromise between the price and the quality. When it comes to the equipment, microphone, headphone, mixer and recorder are basic things you will definitely need. Good, studio-like space will also have a great influence on the quality of your podcast recording.
- In order to start a podcast you will need a microphone, headphones, software and a shock mount.
- The Blue Yeti is a very popular microphone for beginners because it is somewhat inexpensive and it has different sound settings that can be used.
- Some great cheap headphones include the Audio Technica ATH-M20x as they are designed for studio tracking and mixing.
