Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I’m always curious about what others use for their podcast setup. I’ve watched countless videos and listened to a lot of podcasts by podcasters who’ve taken the time to talk about the recording hardware and software they use to record and edit their show. It’s like peeking inside their recording environment and I always benefit from hearing about what others are doing. So I thought I would make one of those episodes too.
My recording setup has changed a lot over the years to the simple and uncomplicated setup I use today. I started with a laptop and builtin microphone and then I went from there to buying various USB and XLR mics, mixers, and pre-amps that I used for a while but ended up selling most of them because I couldn’t find that one magic configuration that seemed to fit me. Then a few years ago, I purchased my Zoom H6 and started building my recording environment around it.
Today, my Zoom H6 is at the center of my podcast recording and Audacity is my software of choice for post production editing. It’s a simple, uncomplicated setup that produces great audio consistently. Here are the links to what I talk about in this episode:
- Zoom H6 Recorder
- Zoom H6 Dual XLR/TRS Mic Adapter
- Shure SM58 Microphone
- Auphonic Desktop Leveler
