How are you all spending your time with growing demand for self-isolation and remote working? Perhaps many of you are looking for equipment that can stream video and audio from home for work or private use. For people like you, I’ve decided to select three manufacturers who produce products that are useful for podcasts to discuss!
※Including the products being introduced this time, various useful items are available on the following podcast (streaming) page. Check this out, too!
ZOOM has many popular products for podcasts, streaming, including mixer recorders and effectors that are useful for music production. Of these, the following two products are particularly convenient for podcast production.
LiveTrack L-8 is a digital mixer with an audio interface function. In addition to having 6 sound pads that can play jingles and sound effects, it can be used for about 2 and a half hours with 4 AA alkaline batteries even in places where there are no power outlets.
PodTrak P4 is a recorder that can record the voices of up to four people on multiple tracks. There are four headphone outputs, each of which has an independent volume control, so each user can adjust and monitor the sound. In addition, it is also equipped with four sound pads, so you can easily perform sound inserts such as background music, jingles, sound effects, and even recorded interviews.
BOYA develops high-quality microphones for PCs, digital cameras, video recorders, as well as microphones for smartphones, and has a large number of products suitable for streaming and podcasts. Here are two products that I’d like to introduce.
USB microphones are convenient when you want to record easily without having to use an audio interface or recorder. The BY-PM700SP is compatible with Windows and Mac, as well as iOS and Android. In addition to flexibility in supporting various devices, the nice thing about it is that you can just put it on the table using a desktop stand. In addition to podcast recording, this product is perfect for remote meetings from home.
Although it is not for direct streaming, it can record audio by connecting it to the microphone input of a single-lens reflex camera mini plug or the input of a smartphone compatible with TRRS. The point is that it can be used easily without a power supply.
Classic Pro is a house brand of professional audio equipment produced by Sound House. We have all kinds of audio equipment with overwhelming cost performance. The lineup also includes recording equipment cables and microphone stands. The CDA10B is especially useful for podcast recording and recording music and so on as well.
The CDA10B is a desktop arm stand that can be attached directly to your desk. Two types of attachments are included: a clamp that attaches to a table or desk as shown in the image above, and a pedestal type that is screwed directly to the desk. A recording microphone can be installed while effectively utilizing limited space.
So, what do you think? On the Sound House "Podcast (Streaming)" category page, we introduce other products, including the products introduced this time, as well as feature articles that are useful for if you’re streaming or podcasting for the first time. Please take a look!
