In today’s episode I answer the question, “Is Inherent Interference Noise Is Killing Your Podcasts Audio Quality?” In addition I give a microphone recommendation for those new podcasters looking for a budget microphone that is flexible, and right for podcasting.
If you have a question contact me at my website (howtostartapodcast.org). You can leave a voicemail via Speakpipe, leave a message on Facebook, or email me at email@example.com.
How to prevent interference noise in your podcast.
Use balanced XLR cables. Buy them on Amazon, or a local music store. This is a must.
Keeping your mic cables separate from your XLR cables. Don’t run your cables close together, or touching each other.
Don’t use a loud computer for recording. Loud fans, or electronics will interfere with your recording. I hear this all the time in new podcasts. It can make post-production a nightmare.
Don’t by cheap equipment – cheap microphones with built in cables that pic up noise.
Just say “no!” to cheap mixing boards. For the most part, podcasters don’t even need mixing boards. They’re overrated!
