What is your experience with podcasting Studio setups?

Please share all the gory details with the world.



You can send me your setup details at: podcasting@mac.com or leave a comment on this site.

I will then post the details on this blog.



I do not want to become a helpdesk but I wouldn't mind collecting and aggregating studio setup details for a while. As soon as it makes sense to move this to another place - when more people are actively working on it for example - I'll gladly move it over.



Platforms: preferably Mac Os X. I can post details about Linux, Windows or other setups but I can't verify/test them and will not do anything else with the information.

Update: Jonathan Marks has offered to help on the Windows side. Thanks :)



What should be captured:

1. How to set up a stable environment!

Anything that makes a setup more or less stable should be shared so not everybody has to go through the same trouble.



2. How to reduce latency.



3. What settings produce the best sound.



Questions:

- What were you doing when the recording crashed?

- Which applications were running/ playing audio when the recording crashed?

- Which applications are you using? (Include URL if it's a new one.)

- What are the exact settings of your applications?

- What have you tried that didn't work?
