The key to podcasting success is putting quality content out for your listeners as often as possible. And when we say ‘quality’, we mean interesting topics covered by a captivating host with excellent sound quality equipment. The first two you can sort out, but how do you produce amazing audio without spending a fortune on equipment? Ponder no more, fellow podcaster, as we have the answer: Vocaster!
Vocaster is the latest innovation from Focusrite, the legendary British manufacturer of audio products. The brand’s Scarlett range is the best-selling interface range in the world – used by all kinds of creators, including podcasters. But unlike the Scarlett products, Vocaster is a dedicated podcasting/voice-led audio interface that provides a simple and easy-to-use solution for new and intermediate podcasters to achieve next-level audio quality.
Introducing the Ultimate Podcasting Kit
With Vocaster, you have everything you need to start recording studio-quality sound – in seconds! The range features two standalone interfaces, Vocaster One and Vocaster Two, and two studio packs that include everything needed to record high-quality podcasts in one box, such as a mic, headphones and cables, plus a software bundle from podcast industry leaders Acast, Hindenburg, and Squadcast worth $600.
Flying solo? The Vocaster One is the independent podcaster’s dream setup in a single, sleek unit. It provides a no-fuss interface that enables you to record high-quality sound confidently and efficiently. Set levels and enhance your sound with just one click; creating high-quality audio with the Vocaster One is effortless.
Prefer company? The Vocaster Two is ideal for more dynamic shows that feature two hosts, guests, and/or audio segments. This advanced interface features two mic inputs and two headphones outputs for recording and listening back. You can also bring in guests over the phone with the convenience of Bluetooth or a single cable.
All Vocaster products feature convenience features such as auto-gain (sets your levels with the click of a button), enhance button (toggle between three podcaster-approved voice presets), and loop-back (easily stream pre-recorded segments such as intros, outros, interviews, jingle, etc.). Long story short: you don’t have to be an audio genius to use Vocaster products, yet, the results will sound professional.
But wait, there is more!
You can rest assured that by buying a Vocaster product, you choose podcasting equipment with less impact on the environment. Components used in these beginner-friendly units have been carefully selected, and more than half the plastics used in Vocaster products are from recycled sources. Not to mention, the packaging is biodegradable and recyclable.
Want more benefits? The purchase also includes access to the Vocaster Hub companion app, which is like opening the door to your very own broadcast studio. It is the central hub for setting up, recording, and mixing your show, allowing you to control your interface settings, set your levels, enhance your sound, and route audio from your phone and computer.
