Share your experience!

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: 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.


- 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?
