The Podcaster Studio is a B&H Kit providing a professional microphone solution for the podcaster. The kit includes an "end-address" microphone, along with a shockmount and spring-loaded, studio boom arm.

The microphone does not require a preamp and additionally can be plugged straight into a computer via a USB connection. A built-in headphone input and amplifier with volume control further simplifies the process of recording material destined for future podcasting.

Rode Podcaster USB Broadcast Microphone

Record high-quality vocals for podcasts and voice-over work right to computers with the RODE Podcaster, a USB microphone designed to sound great in home studio and mobiles setup. If all you have is a room and a computer, you can use this microphone to record your voice with professional resolution and clarity.

Podcasters will appreciate the cardioid polar pattern—which naturally reduces room noise by rejecting any audio to the back and rear of the mic's capsule—as well as the built-in pop filter to minimize p-pops and plosives. The mic comes with a USB cable and a standmount, so you can set it up right out of the box.

Great Sound for Your Pordcasts

Perfect for recording podcasts or voice-overs on your computer, the mic offers a clear and present sound.

Works with Your Setup

The mic will operate with both Mac and Windows computers. No preamp, interface, converters, or mixer are necessary for recording your voice.

Directional Polar Pattern for Home Use

The mic has a cardioid polar pattern to tamp down any extraneous room noise. This directional polar pattern is a great choice if you're working out of an untreated room. The dynamic capsule can also be said to aid in minimizing room noise as it's less sensitive to noise compared to a condenser microphone.

Built-In 3.5mm Headphone Jack

The mic offers a headphone jack for monitoring. Just plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack, and you'll be able to listen to your pro-quality audio in all its glory. Also, a convenient volume dial helps you raise or lower the headphone volume—you won't have to change the volume on your computer or your recording software to hear audio at your desired level.

Professional Audio Capture

This USB mic boasts a 96 kHz/24-bit converter, so you'll be able to record audio with the same specifications of a professional recording studio.

Simple to Set Up

Just plug the mic into your computer's USB port with the attached cable, select it as a device in your recording software, and you're ready to get to work. The mic runs off your device's power, so no need to plug it into a wall.

Thoughtful Appointments

An included USB cable means you can get up and running right away. An integrated pop filter helps mitigate vocal pops and plosives for a cleaner sound. A ring mount for a mic stand is also included.

Auray BAI-2U Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs and Integrated USB Cable

The Auray BAI-2U is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated USB cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2U broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2U allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2U also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

On-Stage Front Address Pop Filter for EV RE20 and RE320

Designed for the EV RE20 and RE320, the On-Stage Front Address Pop Filter helps mitigate plosives and breath noise during vocal recording and broadcast applications such as voiceover work, radio interviews, and podcasts. The pop filter features a 3" nylon filter that not only reduces P sounds and B sounds but also helps prevent corrosive moisture from damaging your microphone's delicate diaphragm.

The rubber-coated 1.9" clamp holds the filter in place and prevents scratches to the microphone's finish. The depth and angle of the 4.75" shaft and nylon pop screen are adjustable, allowing for a quick and easy setup. The pop filter is also compatible with the Rode Podcaster and Procaster microphones

Will this help the audio when I record a YouTube ...

Will this help the audio when I record a YouTube interview I was in? Currently, the audio sounds terribly tinny.
Asked by: Carol
Hello Carol, there are a lot of factors to consider while recording interviews to and from the internet. However, I would say that in general this microphone is an incredible upgrade when used as the source audio for Skype, Youtube, or any streaming services.

question

How do you record 2 people at the same time? I tried it using my podcaster but the sound quality was poor because we could not both get close enough. So if I need 2 microphones, how would I integrate them?
Asked by: Bonnie B.
I suggest you record the 2 tracks seperately (Use a slapstick for sync) then use Audacity to edit and merge the two into one track. We use Techsmith Camtasia for our video and audio editing. Works great. A great resource is Daniel Park at (dappertext LLC, 2643 Mulligan Dr., Jackson, MI 49203, United States ). Good luck with your project !

question

Is the Rode Podcaster Mac compatible (without any additional hardware or software)?
Asked by: Chris R.
Yes it is. I plugged it into my early 2008 Mac Pro. I forget if I had to go into Preferences and select the mic as my input or if it did it for me. I do recommend you use a good set of headphones/earbuds to make sure you hear how you sound on the mic. Just to make sure everything is good. BTW I recommend BSW's Pop Filter: BSW REPOP - Pop Filter for RE20 Microphone. It's super small, and stylish while very functional. IDK if B&H carries them. If they do snag it up. If not, go to bswusa site and run a search for the RE20 Pop Filter
