Podcast Equipment Used

Hello world!

I often get asked questions from people who are wanting to get into podcasting, or people wanting to get into doing voice over from home, on what type of equipment I use. It’s been a long journey, and over the years I have acquired expensive taste and a desire to have the best products to make my job easier. Below you will find a list of equipment I currently use, and equipment I used in the past when I first started out. (Some links may be affiliate links.)

My Thoughts:

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on equipment, you can honestly record a podcast with some super basic equipment. But I will say this much, as a professional audio editor, those people using better equipment take require less editing time on the back end to make their podcast sound awesome. The whole point of a podcast is to be able to HEAR what the hosts/guests are talking about. If your audience isn’t able to hear you, then you may have to adjust the equipment or learn to master audio editing for yourself.

There are plenty of successful podcasts that are just using the Logitech ClearChat Comfort/USB Headset H390  to record their podcast. And honestly, its a super affordable method to do it. If you are able to eliminate a lot of your background noise while recording, your job gets that much easier.

Epic Tip: If you want to find out what your recording space sounds like, turn on your recorder and microphone and sit in complete silence without moving for 60 seconds. And then listen to the recorded file. This will give you an idea of the types of hums, hisses, electronic noises (PC’s are noisy), etc. This noise is called Room Tone. If you are having someone else edit your podcast (Like me ;)) if you record 10 seconds of room tone at the start of your podcast, editing just got that much easier. Because in the end, time is money.
