Podcasting has become an increasingly important medium of expression since its inception, due largely to the simplicity of its creation and complete creative freedom offered to its producers. The main difference between a Podcast and Streaming or Webcasting is that Podcasts are immediately made available in an online archive, allowing for offline listening once downloaded to the listeners device (although they are often made available to stream on demand). Despite the name deriving from an amalgamation of iPod and Broadcast, Podcasts are not affiliated with any particular manufacturer, and can be created and enjoyed on virtually any digital device.
The DV247 Podcasting Pro Bundle 02 provides a complete solution for those wishing to undertake a serious podcasting project with a high-quality set-up.
The Akai EIE Pro Audio Interface has a 24-bit resolution with 44.1/48/96kHz sampling rates. The EIE Pro offers excellent audio handling for your recording needs, thanks to four inputs and outputs allowing simultaneous playback and recording. Four independent combo-ports accept XLR male or 1/4” jack inputs, with gain control provided for each input. A headphone output and select switch is also included along with three USB ports for connecting additional devices.
To capture the desired audio, this bundle comes equipped with Avid Pro Tools 12 Retail Audio And MIDI Recording Software. This fully integrated digital audio workstation provides everything you could possibly desire for audio recording of the highest quality, along with exceptional file management.
A professional set of microphones such as the Rode NT1-A Studio Condenser Microphone, Matched Pair is an essential addition to any serious podcasting production, as they feature cutting edge technology with a JFET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer and a cardioid polar pattern. This matched pair has been acoustically matched for equal sensitivity from each microphone.
The Music Store MS 300 Headphones are designed for a comfortable and accurate monitoring experience. These stereo headphones feature a cushioned headband with large padded ear pads.
The rest of the bundle deals with the essentials: the Music Store MS-1 Table Mic Stand, a lightweight, durable and above all, portable desktop microphone stand with detachable legs; a Fame PF PRO Pro Microphone Pop Filter that is highly durable and effective at suppressing pop noise; and a Music Store Standard Microphone Cable 3m to connect your equipment together. Happy casting!
