I fable my podcast at Additional Banana Productions’ studio in Brooklyn. I’m lucky to call Caitlyn Moldenhauer, creator of Additional Banana, my producer. She makes clear that every one the items sounds big. Here is Caitlyn’s studio.

It’s a elegant association that captures the essence of what Additional Banana is all about: A podcast group with girls-led manufacturing. Books with female authors scattered about, an RBG candle, work from women foolish e book artists and designers and a signed Prince poster. The studio is designed to be shimmering and delighted, in opposition to different recording studios which can be inclined to be unlit and dungeonesque. 

When it entails what roughly gear, we make the most of Rode Microphones and a Rodecaster Professional. We fable primarily in Audition with an SD backup, attributable to you repeatedly need a backup! Our setup permits for a simple chase and play for as much as three microphones and is de facto simple to grasp. The studio additionally teaches women to engineer and edit podcasts, so it’s essential that we come by a setup that isn’t a barrier to studying as we introduce people to podcasting. 

We now come by firm that are available to the studio, however a great deal of them are in various states. In these circumstances, we make the most of Google Hangouts or a cell phone amount to concentrate on with firm. We fable the Skype feeds normally, though after we’ll we take dangle of if firm calling in remotely fable themselves with a studio, or shut to it, microphone setup. For I’m Listening, the corporate who title in on Skype normally fabricate the episode really feel admire an correct radio comment. It’s an homage to the format of Frasier Crane’s radio comment “The Dr. Frasier Crane Insist.”  So the sound of a Skype recording matches for that podcast, however not for all of them. We repeatedly take dangle of in-the-room sound as an completely different of over digital.

Most significantly, we come by a studio pet: Caitlyn’s French bulldog, Ella. She welcomes all of our firm on the door, and it fully units the mood pre-recording. I normally don’t reveal my firm there’s a canines (until I do know they’re allergic), so it’s repeatedly a stress-free shock to laptop display screen their response. Nothing admire having a nice canines to secure a lull in dialog! It will moreover trustworthy aloof be a rules that all recording studios comprise some roughly cuddly pet.

I recently recorded an odd episode of “I’m Listening” in my home, I’ll’t comment too grand, however let’s relate it involved consuming tossed salads and scrambled eggs. The studio gear that we make the most of out of studio is the an identical Rode Mics and sound board (the Rode Procaster), which is de facto moveable and works in non-studio areas for basically essentially the most portion. We repeatedly make the most of dynamic microphones attributable to they befriend in areas that it is likely you will per probability perchance be’t repeatedly alter for background noise, echo, and many others. Caitlyn runs the sound board all through these recordings to be clear the whole audio sounds big.
