Best Podcast Equipment Setup for Beginners (Video 3 of 3)


Hey Guys Anthony Tran here from Marketing
Access Pass. I’ve teamed up with Buzzsprout to bring this
to you. Now this is the last video of a 3 part series,
where I share with you some podcast equipment options to help you start podcasting today. Now this package is a step up from the other
two but you definitely want to check out part 1 and part 2 to see what other suggestions
I have for you. Alright, let’s get started. First, let’s talk about the podcast headset. This is the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x which
is a professional level headphone from the popular “M-series.” What makes this headphone so great is it’s
modern engineering and high quality material that gives you an enhanced audio sound. The podcast headphone looks visually stunning
and it’s got a really sleek design with a black matte finish. This is designed specifically for studio tracking
and mixing so it’s perfect for podcast recording and editing. These headphones are sturdy but it’s also
flexible and has plenty of cushion for support. Audio-Technica designed these headphones for
comfort which allows you to wear it for hours without any problems. What makes this different from the ATH-M20x
headphone that I reviewed in video 1… is it’s abilty to fold up and easily store away. It comes with a nice carrying pouch which
makes it a great heaphone set to travel with. Now, let’s talk about your podcast microphone. The microphone I have here is the Rode Podcaster
microphone. This is designed specifically to give you
that nice broadcast sound from digital recording. This dynamic microphone naturally filters
out background noise and isolates the speakers voice during recording. Which is why this is perfect for podcasting
and home studio recording. The Rode Podcaster also features an internal
pop-filter which eliminates the need for you to purchase an external one. This thing is built tough, but you shouldn’t
be concerned about wear and tear because it comes with a 10 year extended warranty when
you register it with Rode mic. It’s a high-end USB microphone which means
you can plug it into your computer and record easily without a mixer. It also has a headphone jack so you can listen
to your audio levels directly from the microphone. There is also a headphone volume knob conveniently
placed on the mic. This microphone is also compatible with Windows
or Mac and recording software programs like Audacity, GarageBand, Skype and more. So to give you an idea in difference in sound
here is my voice recording my built in computer microphone. So hear is an example of me speaking into
the Rode Podcaster microphone and you can definitely tell a differenece when it’s compared
to speaking into my built in microphone on my computer. It definitely eliminates the hollow echo sound
and gives you a nice deep rich sound. The Rode Podcaster microphone is designed
for the PSA1 studio boom arm which I reviewed in video 2. So definitelyl check out that video to learn
more about its capabilites. Now the Rode Podcaster microphone combines
well with the PS1 shock mount which attaches to the PSA1 studio boom arm. This allows for perfect suspension and provides
isolation from external vibration which can translate to low frequency noise. The Rode Podcaster microphone mounts perfectly
with the PS1 shockmount and allows you to adjust to your desired height and angle. Alright lets review what you get in this package. You’ll get the Audio Technica ATH-M30x headset,
the PSA-1 Boom Arm, the PSM-1Shock Mount, and the Rode Podcaster Microphone. As you can see you can have professional studio
podcast for a very reasonable price and it was so easy setup. You can basically plug and play. So hope you enjoyed this podcast equipment
series. Good luck with your podcast. Don’t forget to check out Buzzsprout.com for
more information.

  1. So from your 03 videos, which USB mic would you recommend? for the value for money? and if we have co hosts, do we need to buy 2 headphones?

  2. Anthony, please help with me with this floor- hiss…and with good equipment: I have the Zoom H5 + Shure m58s and standard XLR cable patches for mic A and mic B. And just that setup has such a loud floor-hiss….why???? I thought the background would be very quiet, but it sounds like someone's frying chicken in the room next to me!! HELP. What settings will minimize this hiss?
