I often mention that you should podcast. Use it as another form of creating and getting your voice heard however, I thought today’s post would not cover why you should do it but what is behind the scenes. What I use to produce podcasts.
So, what’s under the hood of The DAILYB Podcast?
Zoom H6 Six-Track Portable Recorder. This is probably the best purchase I have made that made the most impact on any of the podcasts I am apart of. The features offered, easy-to-use functionality, and portability make it a great choice especially if you are mobile and need to take your recording to the next level.
Shure SM58 Mic. Not the mic of choice for most podcasters but a staple in the music business. I was given the opportunity to get my hands on 4, new SM58’s to use on my podcasts and what an upgrade from my USB mics I had been using. Use the gear you have, right?
Gator Frameworks Mic Stand. This is a very recent purchase and made sitting at my office desk and recording audio a very enjoyable experience. Designed for a kick drum, the stability of this stand is remarkable and beats any of the desk-type stands that clamp to your desk and the price is right!
Adobe Audition. Create, mix, and design sound effects with this Adobe suite software. Alright, that sounded like a plug but making the switch from Garageband to Audition, gave me even more control over how my podcast sounds. A pricey option but if you are already paying for the full Adobe suite use what you have to mix great audio.
Anchor. This platform, by far, has to beat the competition in how easy it is to get your podcast published. You can even record, mix, and publish right from the phone app so the need for gear becomes irrelevant and gets you started right away. The app even allows for you to have guests call in which is super cool!
My podcasting has definitely evolved over the last year and The DAILYB Podcast takes me less than 30 minutes to record and publish an episode so you don’t need to feel overwhelmed that trying this means of creating will take up even more of your time. Remember, even with the Anchor phone app you could podcast from your phone on your way to work in the morning.
Be great. Create.
