Do you need to spend $$$ on a podcasting mic to sound great? Rode PodMic (£90) delivers unexpectedly well for the price if you don’t mind great gain-hungriness (is that a word?) that is 🙂
Following a nice discussion on twitter regarding what mic is better – condenser or dynamic?
I thought I would do some tests of my own and share with everyone of my new audio setup in my office.
In this video I test 3 x different positions for my Rode NT2000 mic & Rodecaster pro. I switch off the live audio processing on the Rodecaster Pro so that you can clearly hear the difference.
I also turn on my Dyson fan which is next to me to generate some background noise at level 5 out of 10 – which is quite loud so we can hear (or not) if the Rode is able to cut out the noise with the HPFs (High Pass Filters)
Hope you enjoy!
