That didn’t take very long. After publishing my first episode I got a question almost right away on what I used to record my show.
Here’s the list:
- EVO 4 USB Audio Interface sound card for music production (2 in / 2 out USB audio-interface, 48 Volt phantom power, 2 microphone preamps, etc.)
- Samson Q7 dynamische handmicrofoon
- Audio Technica ATH-M50x DJ-hoofdtelefoon voor studio
- And some other bits and pieces like an XLR cable, simple microphone stand, plop cap and plugs
I took a while picking and selecting what to get. I initially wanted a Audio-Technica ATR2100x-USB but it has been unavailable everywhere for a couple of weeks now. So I just bit the bullet and went for a higher spec setup. I specifically went for a cardioid dynamic microphone and not a condenser. I wanted more of that broadcast sound and at the same time avoid picking up unwanted background noise as much as possible. A condenser, or so I read, picks up way more background noise.
Marco Arment’s microphone blog post was very helpful in getting to know some basics and find a good microphone amp suggestion.
For hosting I use Buzzsprout.
