Solo Podcast Audio Only
Recording Package

The good news is that there are incredibly easy setups for recording your podcast in your home or office that are extremely budget friendly and easy to use. 


These two mics have both XLR and USB connections, as well as built-in headphone jacks. Meaning you can just plug this mic into your computer and you are ready to go, or if you decide to expand your operation in the future, you can use the XLR connection to attach it to a digital mixer/recorder. 

Audio-Technica ATR-2100x

The ATR-2100x from Audio Technica is a perfect starter mic for any podcaster.  It is portable, handheld, durable, and extremely affordable.  It also features both a USB-C and XLR connection, along with a built-in headphone jack.  Simply connect the mic to your computer, plug in any headphones to the mic, and you’re ready to record your own voice or connect with remote guests on virtually any platform. 


Samson Q9u

Like the Audio Technica ATR-2100x, the Samson Q9u features both a USB-C and XLR connections, meaning it can work right away with your computer, or be part of an expanded studio setup if you add a mixer or digital interface/recorder. 

However, the Samson Q9u will give you a more robust and deep sound, similar to broadcast quality mics you will see in popular podcasts, but at a fraction of the cost.  Not as portable, but definitely will improve your audio quality immensely. 


Select a Mic Stand

Then you’ll need a mic stand. All of these mic stands are perfectly suited for the two mics we are recommending, the question to ask yourself is whether you need something that is portable and light weight so you can travel with it easily and remove it from your desk, or if you prefer a heady duty mic arm that will become a permanent fixture on your desk but make it easy for you to be comfortable while recording.
