Do you want to start a podcast, but have no idea what equipment to buy?
Here are 3 tips on how to start on the right foot with a low budget:
1. Get a condenser mic
There are lots of mics out there, and there is a huge difference between a condenser and a dynamic mic, but if you’re just starting out, a condenser mic is an efficient solution in terms of both sound quality and easy use with computers. These are two of the most recommended models for beginners by pro podcasters, but there are still thousands of possibilities to evaluate:
2. Put on your headphones
You don’t need to produce the best sound quality during the initial stage, so when picking out your first headphones, keep in mind that you can always keep costs at a minimum. Podcasting at this point can stay cheap, and the Audio-Technica ATH-M20x will work for now.
3. Grab a pop filter
This small and economical piece of gear can really make a difference in your sound. A pop filter is a screen that blocks or filters the popping sounds made when you say letters like ‘p’ into a mic. Nady MPF-6 is pretty popular, and it seems to deliver on its promise.
And that’s it!
