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.

These included

  • 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.

Josh Liston now uses an RE20 Microphone into an iRig Pre HD into the Backpack Studio App for iPhone/iPad

I use it as a jingle player, Josh is using it now for recording his comedy show.
