- Podcasting Links
- Hivelogic Podcasting Equipment Guide: This is an excellent guide by Dan Benjamin
- Rails Envy Podcast (Shameless self promotion) .
- Podcasting Tools – Provides a ton of information setting up a podcast.
- Microphone Links
- Kustom KM4 – Cheap but will get the job done (Don’t buy this).
- Samson C01U – Complete podcasting pack. This is USB so there is the latency effect involved with hearing yourself. Great for starting out.
- M-Audio Nova – This is the (arguably) the best mic you can get for under $200.
- Shure SM7B Dynamic Microphone – Fantastic mic with great audio. Top of the line. As Dan Benjamin says, it’s a great “pro-sumer” mic.
- Equipment Links
- M-Audio MobilePre USB Mobile Preamp – If you decide to go with a mic with an XLR connection, you’ll need this.
- Digidesign MBox 2 Mini – Awesome usb preamp that comes with pro tools. More of a “pro-sumer” item. This will only work with one mic at a time, though, so you’ll need a mixer of some sort if you want more.
- Enhancing Your Podcast
- Sound Snap for sound effects.
- PodSafe Music Network for Music you can (legally) play on your podcast.
