What equipment should a podcast studio have?
When hiring a podcast studio, all you need to do is bring the script, everything else the studio should provide. The first and most important piece of equipment is the microphone. Next, double-check that the studio offers good headphones, a mixer and an audio interface. Depending on the budget, you may also want a studio with a preamp or vocal processor to run your vocals, though, for minor effects. Good sound conditioning with audio foam is also essential to ensure that the sound quality is high. Some podcast studios will hire out video equipment if you need to create a visual as well. Check out the studio before you settle on one and ask the management if you need assistance, as some studios will offer bespoke arrangements. Finally, you may need technical assistance. Check with the studio and make sure an audio engineer will be on hand for your session.
