Please Advise, Hardware & Software for Podcast

3 replies

We need some info/suggestions.

We are starting a podcast. We want to be able to set 5 guys in a room, each with their own microphone, and record a conversation. We would also like to include a video camera. We think we'll probably publish on Youtube. Live Streaming would be a nice touch if it works with the logistics, otherwise, we'll be happy if we record/edit/then publish.

We are using a Macintosh computer. Happy to buy any hardware software we need. We just need to know a simple, good, way to put this all together.

Can you please recommend which pieces of hardware & software we will need to accomplish this, and a basic workflow?

    Hi Vince,

    The equipment highly depends on the budget. First of all, be sure that room for podcast is well isolated from noises, the a bit of acoustic treatment can help. For low budget I would recommend Behringer audio interface + Behringer dynamic mic - MX8500 is very good choice. Dynamic, because it tends to pick less noises and works better on non-treated environment. Last reason is because dynamic mics sounds more like mics from the radio.
    Camera, any new gen ASP-C sensor mirrorless will be more than sufficient, but more importantly, pick some LED lights, quality will be improved a lot.

    For podcast, Audacity will be more than enough to edit the voice.

    for Cameras, imo both the Panasonic V770 (~$600) and Sony FDRAX53/B (~$1000) are also good/useful for podcast filming ...
