New London, CT (PRWEB) August 12, 2006
The folks at Pwop Productions (http://www.pwop.com), a Connecticut-based podcast production company are recommending a list of gear for recording podcasts that's definitely easy on the wallet. It includes an iRiver 1GB Flash recorder/player, a mic pre-amp, a large-diaphragm condenser microphone, desktop boom stand, cable, and Sennheiser headphones for less than $500.
From their website: "We've spent a lot of time looking for high-quality gear that is also compact and affordable. Note that you don't need a computer in order to record your voice. We've found that unless you dedicate a computer to recording and don't mess with the settings in-between recordings, using a standalone system produces more consistent results. You don't want to finish a recording only to find out you had the 'Mute Input' checkbox checked. We hear stories like this all the time. Only the preamp requires AC power. The recording device uses a single AA battery which lasts a long time."
A video on the website shows how to connect and use the various pieces of the podcasting kit.
Pwop Productions produces the very popular .NET Rocks!
(http://www.dotnetrocks.com) and Mondays (http://mondays.pwop.com) podcasts as well as Blue Pizza (http://bluepizza.ems.com) for Eastern Mountain Sports, and is generally known in the business for having professional-sounding podcasts.
"An earlier version of this podcasting kit was used by Microsoft's Pat Phillips to record MainFunction Audio To Go (https://www.mainfunction.com/patp/blog/archive/category/1035.aspx), a Microsoft Academic Alliance podcast which we produced over the last couple years in a run of about 30 shows," said Carl Franklin, Pwop CEO and Executive Producer. "The items have only improved and come down in price since then. This podcasting kit is the way to go for good quality, reliability, and affordability."
