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.
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.
The Auray SM-RM20 is a suspension-style shockmount designed to be used with broadcast and condenser mics that sport an M20 threaded studs. The shockmount is crafted out of metal to ensure dependability.
A key feature of this shockmount is its ability to prevent structural-borne vibrations from the stand itself, which can result in hours of editing audio if left unattended at the source. Since this shockmount effectively isolates the mic against such vibration, you will not have to worry about this undesirable, yet all-too-common problem in the studio.
The SM-RM20 utilizes heavy-duty elastic bands to suspend and isolate the microphone inside the basket. A threaded socket provides a secure locking connection between the shockmount and microphone. This connection is so secure that you can suspend your mic downwards from a boom arm. To facilitate optimum microphone placement, the angle of the shockmount is both adjustable and lockable.
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.
The black Auray WBF-BDM foam windscreen is tailored to fit most broadcast dynamic microphones with a 2" diameter such as the Rode PodMic and the Shure SM7B. It's a practical and simple solution that minimizes vocal plosive sounds of announcers and singers who work up close to the microphone.
In recording or podcast studios, it will also reduce noise from moving air produced by air conditioning, fans, or ventilation systems, up to 8 dB with only minimal high-frequency loss. The hypoallergenic and washable foam also shields your microphone from dust, debris, and moisture that can damage your microphone's capsule.
