What's the best quality podcast recording solution under these circumstances?
March 20, 2011 11:20 PM Subscribe
Starting a podcast (spoken word) and suddenly have the opportunity to interview the exact people I really shouldn't be "practicing" on. I'm a radiophile, want decent sound, but have no time to learn the technical side of sound recording before my interviews in a few days. Can I spend a little up front to make decent sound or do I just need to spend more?

- Recording 1 interviewee and myself in a room. My voice can be faint.
- Would love to spend under $50 and had imagined going up to $200 when I actually know what I'm doing.
- Have a Macbook and an iPod
- Hope to do over-skype interviews in the future
(1) Sounds like iTalk is unreliable (previous threads) unless someone tells me otherwise I'll skip working something out with my iPod
(2) Will a $35 USB Logitec USB mic work? Or how expensive a USB mic would I have to get? (no mic jack in Macbooks)
(3) How does the cheapest mac-compatible digital sound recorder compare to just using an iPhone? (need a new phone anyway but was planning on waiting for the next version)
(4) What haven't I thought of?
