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 Professional Bundle provides a complete solution for those wishing to undertake a serious podcasting project with a high-quality set-up.
For efficient podcasting, reliable and study equipment is a must and the Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-42 USB Audio Interface fits this description perfectly. As a 24-bit/96kHz USB recording system, the Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-42 has excellent audio handling. Included are two XLR/TRS combo inputs with phantom power, and three self-lighting and velocity-sensitive PON trigger pads. This interface gives you a complete desktop online broadcast studio with a number of unique real-time effects.
A versatile microphone such as the Shure SM7B Dynamic Vocal Microphone is an essential addition to any professional podcasting production. A flat wide-range frequency response offers an exceptionally clean and natural reproduction of music and speech. This microphone has a rugged construction with an effective pop filter.
The AKG K271 MKII Stereo Studio Headphones are designed for a comfortable and accurate monitoring experience. These stereo headphones feature a self-adjusting headband with Varimotion speakers, high noise attenuation and a dynamic around-ear closed-back design.
The rest of the bundle deals with the essentials: the Samson MD5 Microphone Stand, a slim, durable and above all, portable table-top microphone stand; and a Music Store Platinum Microphone Cable 3m to connect your equipment together. Happy casting!
