Podcast headphone monitoring

It’s not distracting at all. It’s often not necessary. The only real reason to use headphones for a conversation or interview is if you want other audio to be heard by the talent but not picked up by ...

One clip becomes louder when merging clips in Adobe Audition

Here's what I think is happening: The clip that shows louder after merging is louder before merging. With only your screen grabs to go on, it looks like the individual files are rendering and image of ...

How to record a multi-host podcast with a dedicated microphone on an iPad

Welcome to Sound Design. Your co-host will need to use headphones/earpods, etc to stop your voice interfering with their voice. You can use a TRRS splitter to combine the microphone and headphone ...

How do I adjust recorded audio so that the quiet parts become louder and the loud parts become quieter?

This is one reason why a) you do a level check before you go & b) why you record to separate tracks. If compression/limiting can't make up the gain enough, or over-compresses one voice without ...

Setting up specs for podcast edit

Upsample them all to 24 or 32-bit 48kHz* WAV at or before import. This will gain no 'new' quality but will enable more manipulation/plugins etc without losing anything further. You then have the ...

Podcast headphone monitoring

I would say that it is only weird at first to hear yourself but you get used to it. The only reason it would be a problem is if there were a long latency between when they speak and when they hear ...

Connecting two dynamic microphones to one preamp

if your mics are getting phantom power via the Behringer interface, then I'm not sure a splitter would work. Or two mics needing phantom power from a single preamp would probably draw too much current ...

(How) can I remove this special echo in a specific recording

Interesting subject material! Firstly, the problem appears more to be a pre-echo problem rather than a post-echo problem. I'm not sure how this has occurred, but the sound of your voice in the ...

Can I add a 3rd XLR mic to a Behringer - Xenyx 802 mixer?

You can, but it is not ideal. The remaining channels on your mixer don't just lack an XLR connector, they also don't supply phantom power and they expect a line-level input. A simple XLR to jack ...

Audio compression and/or EQ for general podcast recording software

You really can't define specific parameters as "default". If you take a look at a compressor you'll notice the poti threshhold. This basically specifies at which point the compressor will actually ...

Zoom Q2HD for podcast-quality recordings?

I think you could get great quality with your zoom device, and it will all come down to the room. So I think the living room is probably out of the question, but you can try it. To get a professional ...

Can I record 2 Audio-Technica ATR3350 lav mics split into a zoom recorder on different tracks?

You should be able to make this work with a couple of 1/8" female to 1/4" male adapters. Plug a lav mic into the adapter, then the adapter into one of the inputs on the bottom of the Zoom. Press and ...

What's the right (low cost) equipment for a two-person in-person interview setup?

One setup that I've found to work pretty well is an all-in-one field recorder, such as a Zoom H6 or a Tascam Digital Portastudio. Such devices can often be found for cheaper than the cost of a full ...

What's the right (low cost) equipment for a two-person in-person interview setup?

Have you actually TRIED recording with a phone in your conference room? If you identify exactly where is the microphone and hold it around 8 inches from the subject's mouth you may be surprised how ...

When should a noise gate be applied?

Definitely use the gates on the editing phase, rather than the recording. I am using gates to avoid crosstalk on a 5-person podcast, all recorded around a table, to 5 separate tracks in Logic Pro. ...
