Recording podcasts at a specific location or live with another person often have a different setup than recording virtually. You’ll need to choose a location that has good acoustic qualities, but also plenty of noise reduction. If there is a video recording, you’ll also need a proper lighting rig to get quality video. Finally, it is imperative to keep everything as simple as possible to avoid any technical issues and excessive time troubleshooting any equipment. If you follow these steps, you will be ready for any potential obstacles you may face.
- Some positives on recording on location include simplicity, noise isolation, portability and quality control.
- In order to record a great interview, you will need a lapel microphone, a digital recorder, a headphone splitter and sometimes an extension cable.
- The more money that you invest into your setup, the higher quality of audio that you will be producing.
