CTL staff can help you get started with podcasting hardware and software, and work with you to develop specific ideas that a podcast can execute effectively.

Podcasting Equipment in the Recording Studio

  • Microphone: Yeti Blue USB Microphone which helps create impeccable, studio-quality recordings with intuitive and easy steps. The four different pattern modes provide flexibility to record a bevy of diverse recordings like podcast, interviews, audio for videos, vocals, etc.
  • Studio Acoustics: Soundproofing acoustic foam is built in the side walls. It reduces echoes and background noise by absorbing the reverberations sound can make by bouncing off the walls.
  • Mac Mini Computer with Audacity software for editing.
