There are three things that every podcaster is looking for when it comes to equipment in their studio. For one, they want quality. Nothing screams amateur like poorly recorded audio, especially when it is the fault of the equipment. The second thing they are looking for is affordability without sacrificing that quality. So if we can use the tools we already have, then dollars remain in our bank accounts and podcasters, and their wives, remain happy. And lastly, many podcasters are looking for some portability. Yes, we like our studios, but we also like the ability to take our studios out and about for a bit.
Bossjock Studio answers this need. John Wilkerson from the Wired Homeschool Podcast literally dropped by my studio the other week to chat about how this app has transformed his podcasting. He already owned an iPad and an Audio-Technica ATR2100. He purchased a Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit and walah he had his studio. Now granted if you don’t have an iPhone or iPad, this studio setup will get pricey. And you do need a USB microphone. But barring those hurdles, it is possible, as John demonstrated in the Wired Homeschool Podcast to put out quality content with simplicity.
Podcast ready with no need for post production, Bossjock allows a podcaster to record a podcast while triggering intros/outros, bumpers and background music all on-the-fly. It allows you to encodes to all your favorite formats – mp3, m4a, wav, aiff and then export the files to FTP, Dropbox, Soundcloud, iTunes, Wifi, iTunes Share, AudioCopy and Email. It even works with the iRig PRE that Troy Heinritz talked about the other week. It is seriously worth the $9.99 price tag.
If you already using Bossjock Studio, I would love to know how you are using it. Drop me a voicemail using the Speakpipe widget to the right.
