And now, this week's episode.

Speaker:

At some stage in your podcasting journey,

Speaker:

you're gonna be asking yourself,

Speaker:

Is it time to upgrade my equipment?

Speaker:

Now this could be microphones, it could be the mixers that you use, it could be the hardware

Speaker:

or the software you're recording or editing into, but there will come a time when you'll

Speaker:

think do I need to upgrade? And I hate saying this, but it depends.

Speaker:

You might already have a great sound, even with the setup you're using at the moment.

Speaker:

I've said it before and I'll always say this, you don't need super expensive equipment to

Speaker:

get a great sound for your podcast.

Speaker:

The more important thing is making sure your recording environment is really good, so nice

Speaker:

soft surroundings, cushions, chairs, whatever you can put in there that takes away the echo

Speaker:

from hard walls, bare floors etc. If you do want to upgrade your equipment, start small and get

Speaker:

feedback from other podcasters and listeners to see what part of the podcast they enjoy.

Speaker:

Then if you want to upgrade your equipment you'll know which one to focus on. Maybe you do want to

Speaker:

upgrade to an XLR mic and use an audio interface for example, or maybe you want to upgrade your

Speaker:

interface and improve that side of things. But really you don't need to worry about upgrading

Speaker:

your equipment right away if your podcast sounds good and you're happy with the end result.

Speaker:

Until the next time, happy podcasting.

Speaker:
