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 ...
Finding the best microphone boom arm and mic stand for your recording setup can make a huge difference. Do you have a preferred type of mic stand? There are several popular choices on the market. The two primary types are the desk stand and the floor stand. Still, some brands and styles are great for just about everything that involves recording.
We know that everyone is working with a different budget, but we guarantee that any purchase you make will be a good investment for your podcasting or recording venture.
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 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:
So, you’re finally jumping on the podcasting bandwagon and are looking for the best gears to help you produce awesome episodes! Welcome to the club! I’ve taken a peek at the list of equipment every podcaster has on their Must-Haves to help you iron out your list. It didn’t come as a surprise when podcasting headphones came out as one of the top essentials. Headphones make every conversation with your guests run smoothly. And if you’re using top-quality headphones, that will make editing a lot easier and more convenient.
Below are the features all starting podcasters need to look for when choosing a headphone.
Podcasting has evolved from being a hobby to a serious tool for establishing your credibility in the online space. Whether you're just starting, or you've been podcasting for a while, investing in good quality podcast equipment is a must. One of the primary requisites for shooting your video podcasts is to have good lighting. A professional-looking video helps entice new watchers and listeners.
Whether you're shooting a solo podcast or filming an interview, or creating an online course, these are three of the best podcast lighting kits to consider:
I think the biggest problem with people wanting to start a podcast is that they don't know where to begin. A lot of times when you're starting a business or something new in your life, there are all these things that seem so overwhelming and scary at first glance because you don't...
1. No one really leverages Authority Hijacking as much as they should.
You should be putting your picture next to your guest pic if you take the time to interview them b/c when /, if they share your name and episode, will be on it.
And you want to be strategic and research what keywords you want to rank you and see who is ranking for them now ...maybe that person is the person you interview.
2. Your mess is your message.
If you've failed in business or have gone through something then it needs to be talked about. It makes you stand out, it makes you realize it and it cannot be copied. I believe God gave you the path for a reason, so there an opportunity in the destruction or mess.
3. Repetition is the mother of skill.
If you think everyone in your audience has heard a message by you saying it once or twice you're wrong...... If you have a message that is already tested meaning its already getting you clients and you haven't used it on the...
"How do I find great guests that can help me fill your pipeline, grow my audience and produce content that gives me more exposure?"
We get this from a some clients coming in to the Profit Ready Launch Program
First it's pretty easy to find guests these days since everybody and their mother wants exposure.
But here's the problem
Guests aren't interested building a relationship that's is mutually beneficial (partnerships, JV's, etc.)
Guests are their on their own agenda not yours
Truth is as the host of the podcast this is your damn fault...not theirs.
This is a hard pill to swallow for most of you.
To build this right we've designed a way to go about this so you DONT waste time interviewing people who help you won't further your mission.
Whether you're a beginner or you've been podcasting for a while, you know that good sound quality impacts your listenership. After all, not many people would put up listening to a podcast that has distracting background noises.
Some podcasters rely on noise reduction plugins. However, those plugins sometimes
distort the audio quality of some parts of your podcast. It is better to prevent and
eliminate disturbances before recording. A simple solution may be to buy a good
microphone and find a quiet room in your house to record from. The next best option is to soundproof your room or home recording studio.
To enhance the quality of your audio, you need to perform home studio or
soundproofing, which has two main objectives:
If you’re ready to invest in some...
