To this point, I'd not yet written about my own podcasting setup. Now is the time!
I'm part of a Christian Podcast called the Salty Dogs Podcast. We have 3 hosts and an additional seat at the table for any guests that we bring on, in person.
Our setup also allows us to Zoom in a guest if we need to, although we prefer in person more than anything. While recording, we go live to Facebook.
Here's a basic list of gear that we use:
The idea is this: we run 4 XLR Dynamic microphones into the Zoom L12 USB Mixer. The mixer allows us to send four headphone mixes, one to each person at the table. We run the main mix out from the soundboard into the DBX 266xs Compressor, which then runs into our livestream camera feed. We set up the Canon 5D Mark IV for video, and that runs HDMI out into the Epiphan WebCaster X2 Livestream device, where we go live to our podcast's Facebook page.
We're able to record all of our audio onto individual tracks onto an SD card w/ the Zoom L12 Livetrack Mixer. The great thing about livestreaming our recording is that Facebook will keep the video on our podcast page, and if for some reason we need it, the audio will always be on Facebook, even if we delete the files from our SD card or our computer later on.
The Canon 5D Mark IV has a recording time limit of 29 minutes, so we do not record the video onto the camera, unfortunately. The remedy for this would be to record onto an Atomos Ninja V external monitor / recorder, but that's around a $1,000 solution for high quality video. We'll pass for now.
Below is a sample of our podcast audio, along with an embed of our Facebook Live video recording. The studio is set for four people but we only had two hosts for this particular recording. As always, feel free to email with any questions regarding podcast gear for beginners! It's my pleasure to help.
