After watching this quick video you’re going to know what makes a good recording space, how to overcome some of the challenges of recording at home or the office, and feel more confident creating your own recording space.
The BIG SECRET you need to know about recording: The quality of your recording space is more important than the quality of your microphone.
Think of creating your podcast like baking a cake, and your recording space is the oven.
I could bake a cake using the tastiest ingredients available (great content) and mix them up with the fanciest mixer money can buy (your microphone and other gear), but if I bake that cake in a lousy oven (recording space) that doesn’t cook evenly…I’m going to end up with a nasty cake that nobody wants to eat, or a show that will have nobody listening.
Tips for Creating a Better Podcast Recording Space
- Fill your space with sound absorbing materials like carpet or rugs, pillows, and blankets
- Avoid recording with windows directly in front of or behind you
- Walk-in closets make great vocal recording booths
- Do a test recording and listen through earbuds for any distracting background noise
Whether you’re recording podcasts, meditations and visualizations, or a company update, the devil is in the details. Starting with a good recording space will make you sound more professional, build your credibility with your audience, and save you headaches, time, and money in post production.
