Patrick Tomasso explains how to record a podcast with an IPad Pro, Garageband and the Rode NT USB Mini Microphone

Great presentation from Patrick Tomasso!

An IPad and the Apple Audio Recording Software Garageband are all that you need to record and produce your podcast.

Rode has a very good microphone the NT USB Mini, that you just have to plug into your IPad.

Also the possibility to choose music loops for the intro and outro is really neat!

I am personally a PC user.

But I can really see and understand how easy and professional this workflow is.

Also the software user interface looks great.

This is why many media creators pay a little bit more for a Apple product, but then get a little bit more back in terms of quality and design.

Podcastschnitt in Audacity mit mehren Spuren

Man kann in Audacity mit mehren Spuren arbeiten

Über Datei – importieren kann man mehrere Audiospuren in ein Projekt importieren

Mit dem Hüllkurve Werkzeug kann man die Lautstärke von einer Audio Datei einstellen, ohne die Datei zu verwenden (z.B. einbleinden oder ausblenden).

Das MP3 Plugin muss man separat installieren.

Für Podcast Anfänger ist Audacity die ideale, kostenlose Einstiegssoftware!

Tipps für Podcasterinnen – nutzt Videokameras, so habt Ihr Audio und Video Content gleichzeitig produziert

Arbeitet mit Videokameras

Es macht in meinen Augen viel Sinn mit Videokameras auch für Podcasts zu arbeiten. So hat man Content für Videoplattformen und Inhalte für seinen Podcast produziert

GoPro MAX Audio out of the Box

Diese Audio Aufnahme kommt von der GoPro MAX unbearbeitet Out of the Box.

Diese Arbeitsweise spart Zeit und bringt sehr gute Ergebnisse!

Manchmal ist es hilfreich mal etwas alternativ und kreativ zu denken im Podcasting.

Was haltet Ihr von dieser Idee?

Video Version von diesem Podcast

Im Podcasting zählt immer mehr der Inhalt und die Ideen die darüber transportiert werden.

Ich war schon immer ein Typ, der gerne Audio Inhalte vor Ort in der Natur aufgenommen hat.

Das macht den Podcast spannend und lebendig.

Die Variante mit der Video Kamera ist noch eine Weiterentwicklung.

Also Podcaster/in sollte man sich nicht nur auf das Büro, den Schreibtisch und ein Audio Interface festlegen.

Ich bin der Meinung, dass Outdoor Podcasts noch ein klein wenig spannender sind.

Das gilt auch für Interviews und Gespräche.

Ich persönlich habe mit GoPro Kameras sehr gute Erfahrung gemacht.

In diesem Fall mit der GoPro MAX.

recordingrevolution compares 60$ to 700$ Microphone

Honestly I do no hear a big difference between the two Microphones

We jump right into the comparison in the video.

Thank´s to recordingrevolution for doing this video!

Look´s like you get a good deal with the Behringer C1.

In Europe it costs only about 30€ for example at Thomann

The easiest way to start recording your podcast – a mobile audio recorder.

The first thing you need, when you think about starting a podcast is a microphone and a recording medium.

Many people record their podcasts to a computer, using a software like Audacity.

Therefore they need a microphone and an audio interface to bring the sound into the computer.

But is this the most convenient way to record your pocast, especially, when you are a beginner?

In my opinion, the easiest way to record your speech is to use a mobile audio recorder.

I use for 10 years now the ZOOM H4n Audio recorder to record my podcasts, as well as quality audio for my youtube videos.

The microphones are integrated into the recording device.

There is no computer, that could freeze or crash.

There is nothing more anoying than a crashing computer with your perfect audio recording, that is lost in podcast nirvana.

You can take your mobile audio recorder with you.

This means you can record whereever you are. In the park, on a train, at the airport in a hotel room, or simply at home.

When your recording is done, you take your SD card and copy the recording to your computer.

There you can do the editing of your podcast. You can cut your mistakes out and maybe mix some intro and outro music to your audio content.

A Zoom H4n is about 200 Euro.

So it would be cheaper to record with a microphone + cable + audio interface.

But personally I believe it is way more convenient to do the recording into a dedicated device and than you can copy the mp3 or wav file to your computer.

Also for interviews on the street or like a reportage podcast a mobile recorder is super handy.

I have mine now for 10 years.

I would recommend a mobile recorder to my younger me.

Also when you get more professional about podcasting, you can plug professional microphones into the device and record on separate tracks.

A mobile audio recorder is your studio in your pocket.

It usually gives phantom power to external microphones, when needed and it can be powered with simple batteries.

Connecting a microphone with an interface to a computer can be difficult. I still have today to search for the right settings to record my podcast.

There are also mobile audio recorders which can record 4 external microphones like the Zoom H6.

The Zoom H6 is about 300 Euro, but you have more options for the future to grow your podcast.

You can record 4 separate persons with it.

You can of course also use the Zoom H1n, which can be found for under 100 Euros.

It has no external connections, but you can record your podcast and work like described above.

If I would be starting a podcast today, I would get a mobile audio recorder.

It gives you the best flexibility and it is crash free.

Also with a mobile recorder you get encouraged to go outside and bring interesting stories home to your podcast.

Podcasting Basics

Podcasting, that is your very own radio show on the internet!

Podcasting is not brandnew anymore. It already has some miles on the motor.

More and more people are realizing the power and fun of podcasting.

The Podcast movement began 2005 when apple supported podcast shows.

Here an interesting article about “podcasting the future of audio”

So it is now about 15 years old.

You do not need a large studio to create a podcast. You can record it anywhere, for example in your kitchen or with a mobile recorder on top of a mountain.
