Hey, welcome to today’s podcasting tip tip tip tip tip….. Guess what, we’re talking Echo… echo echo….
Hey I’m Chris Huskins and today we are going to talk about echo, in your podcast recordings.
Not many of us can afford to record in a full studio and therefore the rooms we record in aren’t acoustically treated, and will sometimes give a fair bit of echo as you speak.
There have been some awesome ways of suppressing this, especially some posted in the PodTips community this year. And essentially, they are all blanket and pillow forts!
Did you ever build a den or fort when you were younger…. Yep! Believe it or not hanging a mattress, surrounding yourself with pillows or blankets, actually takes that echo away for the most part. And these are all things that you have around your house…. Unless ofcoure you are a vampire and don’t sleep!
So go grab a few fluffy and soft things, pile it around, have some fun. And if you want to go and see some pictures of this then do check out the PodTips community on Facebook.
If you don’t want to be hanging blankets every time and are just looking to remove echo or reverb from your recording space. You can always grab a small box, one that will fit your microphone inside…. Lay it down so the open square is facing you, and fill it with acoustic foam… You can get acoustic foam online easily and it’s very affordable… Then you stick your mic inside and hit record… Bye bye echo!
If you want to see my recording box and maybe get one for yourself nice and cheap do comment and let me know and I can help sort you out!
That’s today’s podcasting tip. Watch out for tomorrow’s as we start to look at some ways to grow your podcast audience.
