8 Months Later Do I Still Like the Rodecaster Pro?
In a previous episode, three podcasters shared their opinion on the Rodecaster pro. We all liked it but wanted some more PRO options. Today I give you an update.
Because of My Podcast - I Got a Sponsor
Brandon/StudeeoB of the Beats to Inspire has received his first sponsor from a music-related software company.
- The ability to record separate tracks (both the computer and the SD card)
- The ability to access the micro SD card without having to pull out the card
- The ability to add more jingles to the jingle player
- The ability to see how much time is left when playing a jingle (great for people talking up exit music)
I've had mine since January, and with the ability to do all the above (and more) if you want a device that will handle just about anything - this is it.
Where the Rodecaster Pro Shines
If you are having issues where your guest can't get to a computer and they want to connect via the phone (as in, well, the phone) this is the easiest way to do it).
While I would never do this, but to show off its versatility, I could have my co-host on skype via my computer. Then call the guest on the phone and everyone could hear each other. If I had a panel discussion I could connect to another person on Zoom on my tablet and again, everyone could hear themselves.
The only thing that I wish it did differently is it records a little lower than I normally would. HOWEVER, it records clean, and increasing the volume doesn't add any hiss.
Holy Cow You're an Influencer
I am very nervous today mentioning the Rodercaster Pro. Why? Because the last time I did someone with a Zoom H6 and a headphone amplifier bought one. While that setup does just about everything (minus the jingles and all the "Everyone hears everyone" features (the technical term is mix-minus). I say this because if you are doing any kind of reviews be careful and you might want to include to point out who this is a good fit (and when not to buy it)
Backpack Studio Reviews
StudeeoB shares his insights into Backpack Studio App for the iPhone that works as a jingle player, but also a full recording tool to do your podcast and upload it to your media host.
I use it as a jingle player, Josh is using it now for recording his comedy show.
