Josh L and Josh A talk podcast background noise, bad recording quality, and being a better podcast guest and/or co-host by having superior sound quality. 

Josh L also introduces his new USB interface the Scarlett 2i4 powering his CL-1 Cloudlifter and Heil PR40 Microphone - the results were pretty handy, and Josh A said Josh L sounded great coming through Skype. The Scarlett 2i4 was incredibly easy to set up (on a iMac in this case), has smooth controls, clean gain, and great build quality.

  • Josh L: Heil PR40 > CL-1 Cloudlifter > Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 > Audacity/Skype > Audition for post-prod.

Josh L busts out the Heil PR40 for the first and possibly last time on #SATT (as he was thinking of selling the microphone) but the results were much better than expected. And now that Josh L is 400+ podcast episodes into Podcasting journey, his "improved Podcasting voice" (slightly people slightly) makes the Heil PR40 a different microphone. 

 

How do you think Josh L sounded on the Heil PR40? 

Podcasting gear used in this episode:

  • Josh L: Heil PR40 > CL-1 Cloudlifter > Zoom H5 > Audacity/Skype > Audition for post-prod.
  • Josh A: ATR2100 > Audacity/Skype > Audition for post-prod.

Josh L tells Josh A about how he traded in his AT2005 microphones for a pair of Shure SM58's for handheld podcast interviews. Below are just some of the reasons the SM58's truned out to be the better microphones for podcast interviews - where the microphones were handheld and/or passed around.

 

The SM58 was simply better for handheld applications. 

  • The SM58 has far less handling-noise than the AT2005 (Josh A says the ATR2100 is also pretty noisey when handled).
  • The SM58 is a tougher build, and is much more likely to take a drop, bump, spill or tug.
  • The SM58 has a much nicer XLR connector and is more resistent to Plosive P's. 

 

Podcasting gear used in this episode:

  • Josh L: MXL USB.009 > Audacity/Skype > Audition for post-prod.
  • Josh A: ATR2100 > Audacity/Skype > Audition for post-prod.
