Best Tools To Make A Podcast - The first piece...
(Page 2 of 3 )
The first piece of hardware you need is a microphone. Itís important not to go cheap with this. A poor quality microphone will produce an inferior sound and make you sound unprofessional. You can find high quality headsets with microphones for only 20 or 30 bucks at your local Radio Shack or Circuit City.
Next you need software. Audacity is a free software program for recording that is hands down the most popular and the most used for the do-it-yourself podcaster. You will also need an MP3 encoder to convert your audio file into an MP3. The LAME MP3 encoder is popular and iTunes for Mac and PC can convert recordings into MP3 for free. Using these resources will get you going without spending much money.
Now if youíre looking to get the highest quality equipment for podcasting there are more choices. I would suggest using a Sennheiser e845 supercardioid microphone, connected through an M-Audio FireWire Solo Mobile Audio Interface, using Sony Sound Forge for the software.
