Where Do You Podcast? January 24, 2007Posted by Jeff in Jeff Frey, Podcast Audio Equipment, Podcasting, Rice University.
This week… I’ve decided to quickly answer the 5 “W”s of me and how I podcast (who, what, where, when, and why).
There are four places available to me to podcast. One, at the Rice University Digital Media Center. There is a closet there that is set up with a professional microphone and a mac with garage band and audacity. Two, Rice IT has a video podcasting room that I haven’t ever personally used, but clients have. IT will help you with the editing and the posting of your podcast. The third place isn’t really a place. You can podcast anywhere if you have the right equipment. I have a Roland Edirol R-09 portable digital recorder and have access to a lot of other portable recorders that friends have.
Fourth, and where I do most of my work, is my home. I have a mac with garage band and audacity on it and a pc with audacity and pro tools from my recording studio days (cakewalk is on there as well). What I really use is my Roland VS2480. It’s a digital recording board with effects and editing. I have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse attached to it and all my jingles/sound/effects/eqs/etc. are stored in there. I power it on, bring up my podcast settings and start recording. I also use two Shure KSM44s condenser microphones for recording. Sometimes I audio hijack skype voicemails and sometimes I run them right into my board as another channel and use headphones. I use the levelator if levels are different. I use libsyn as my host.
I think that covers the Where… and maybe even the How…? Thanks for the questions.
