This 45 minute session, will be covering the most of important piece of equipment in a podcast set up… the microphone! In this Podcast Makers Session, we will show you the various microphone techniques to get the best quality podcast recording from yourselves and your guests. The way a microphone is used, the best place to position a microphone, and microphone levels are all subjects we will cover in this session.
The main question in regards to acquiring equipment to make a podcast is cost. We will advise on microphones on each end of the price scale, and how to get the best out of these microphones, regardless of price, including microphones built into your smartphone.
