A resource for the podcast equipment we use for MIW.
Microphones & Stuff
Rode Podmic – These are the microphones we use. It’s a very good mic for the money.
Shure SM7B – This is the ‘Best’ microphone you can buy. It is used by most profesionals for podcasting, but it comes at a steap price.
Pop Screen – This helps reduce popping noises that we naturally have as we speak. Technically, the Podmic has an internal one; however, we’ve found it helps to have a traditional foam one.
Desk Boom Stand – This is our primary stand and is attached to the desk top in our studio. This is a very budget friendly model.
Mic Stand – We use this stand for our guest mic. It’s easy to set up on a table
Portable Mic Stand – Easy to travel with!
Headphones & their wires
Sony MDR-7506: My favorite studio headphones – classic and very comfortable.
Audio-Technica ATH -M30X: This is our 2nd choice for headphones.
Headphone splitter/amplifier – This takes the single output from the 2i2 and splits it 4 ways. It allows up to 4 people to listen with studio headsets.
Patch Cable: This connects the Scarlett 2i2 (below) to headphone splitter.
The connectors and recorders
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 – This is your data acquisition box that will allow you to interface with your computer via USB.
XLR Cables – These are needed to connect the microphones to inline amplifier and to DAC. If you have a Cloudlifiter, you will need 2 per microphone. We use a small.
Foam panels – We used these when converting a small part of our basement into a recording studio. They were really easy to put up and look awesome!
