Hardware I use:
- The Audio Technica AT2020USB microphone.
- Dave uses the Samson C01U.
- I use a the Nady MPF-6 pop filter to block air getting to the microphone.
- I use the Samson SP01 shock mount to reduce vibration in the microphone.
- And I have the On Stage DS720 mic stand to hold the shock mount on my desk.
- When I’m out and about or need to record multiple people at once, I use the Zoom H1 handheld.
- While recording this video, I had my Olympus ME-15 lapel mic plugged into the H1, which was acting as a USB mic.
- If I’m in a pinch, I use the microphone on my Logitech 9000 USB WebCam
Software I use:
- The key piece of software for recording multiple people on a podcast is Mumble, an open source communication program on Sourceforge.
- We rent server space on a service called MumbleBoxes to host our server. The software running on the server is called Murmur, also open source.
- For editing, we use Audacity to mix all of the audio.
- Before mixing, we use a program called the Levelator in order to compress and clean up the audio.
- Online, we use LibSyn to host our files and act as a content delivery network.
- We also use WordPress as a blogging platform.
