I chat with Brad Hargis, cohost of The Cinema Guys podcast, about how he records and produces episodes with his two cohosts, Justin and the Cinemaiden.

We discussed:

  • Ferrite for on-location recording
  • Microphones: ATR 2100 (Brad), Knox Gear KN-UM01 USB/XLR Mic (Cinemaiden), PylePro PDMIC58 (Justin)
  • Mixer: Mackie ProFX8v2
  • Recorders: Main EVISTR L53, backup EVISTR L150
  • Edit with Audacity on a 15 inch MacBook Pro
  • Auphonic
  • iTunes to convert to a M4A file
  • Recording: Mics connected via XLR to Mixer I record My mic (ATR 2100) on L channel and co-hosts(Knox and Pyle) on R channel. Record to WAV file on the L53 main recorder.
  • After recording, copy audio files to computer and open in Audacity to 1. Use noise reduction, 2. Compress to level audio down, 3. Amplify to set audio to -1 dB, and 4. Use Nyquist Noise Gate on each channel.
  • Edit all the audio adding music in post.
  • Auphonic to set the final level to -15 LUFS.
  • To finalize the file I import the .WAV into iTunes to convert to 96k Stereo M4A file adding artwork and metadata to the file.
  • Upload file to Blubrry and post to my Wordpress website that is hosted on godaddy using PowerPress.

Thanks for being such a great guest, Brad!
