Podcasting is extremely fun and exciting, but there is one thing you must do before you start podcasting, Commit. You must internally commit to podcasting, as you must do with anything that is potentially beneficial but takes some time and effort to do.
What You Will Need:
Apart from what we covered in the Home Studio article you will need to able to record with multiple mics, why would you want to record with multiple mics? Well it makes it a lot easier to fix someone’s audio, either on the spot by adjusting their mic level or later on if you have multiple audio tracks recording at once.
Even with multiple USB microphones, however, most standard computer recording software can only recognize one audio input for recording at a time. However, there are ways to sneak around this limitation:
For using multiple USB microphones on Windows, you can aggregate them all into a single recording device using software like Voice Meeter (free) or Virtual Audio Cable (trial version supports up to three devices). The audio from each mic will get picked up just fine, but all level adjustments have to be made through the software.
- OS X
In OS X 10.7 and later you can set up aggregate devices without any additional software.
