Do you have more noise in your podcast audio than you'd like? Do you know what is causing that noise? Is it your mic? How about your studio or maybe it's your preamp...if you use one. I'm talking with Julian Krause all about the latter but of course we dive into many related topics surrounding preamps and noise, including:

How to test a preamp for noise or find out what its noise floor measurement is.

How the noise you're hearing might be coming from your mic (if it's a condenser) before it comes from your preamp.

Dynamic vs condensor microphones.

Several audio recorders to include the Mixpre, Zoom H5, H4n and H4n Pro, Zoom f8 and more.

Microphone impedance and some of the standard mics you may have used or are currently using.

And how the device Julian made works for testing a preamp and how to make one of your own.

Comparing preamps to other preamps in terms of noise floor specs.

And how not to test a preamp.

Measuring noise levels (of a preamp) in software.

Using low cut filters during recording vs post production.

Gain staging—how to get the most out the device you’re using cause the noise floor exists regardless of your recording level. Can you simply lower your level to lower the noise? Not really. You’ll end up needing to boost levels in post production and the noise will then be audible because it was always there; you just couldn't hear it in your headphones while recording at lower levels.

In this sample, I've plugged the ATR2100 into my Mackie ProFX mixer via XLR connection which is then piped through an MDX compressor and out to a DAR.

In YouTube even the file name matters. Google will be able to better index your video if you name the file of your video something related to the video content itself.

When creating a podcast, before you even publish it live to the internet, itunes or anywhere else, make sure to create a short 15 to 30 second promo for your show.

 

Creating a short promo will allow your podcast to get into the itunes store early, before your actual show's launch date which will allow you to go live with your very first podcast without any barriers to being discovered on itunes. 

 

Because you submitted your show early, the approval process will be completed before you publish your first episode. When your first episode is published, your itunes podcast page will have already been approved and your show will be immediately searchable in itunes as well as any other podcast directories you have submitted your show to (e.g. Zune, Miro). 

 

In case you didn't know, getting your show listed in itunes requires an approval process. Sometimes the process can take as little as half an hour but in most cases it can be days or even weeks before someone listens or watches your show and makes sure it meets requirements (valid feed, appropriate show art, etc) set out by Apple and the itunes store. So get your show submitted early, before you publish your very first episode and when you are ready to go live, your show will be ready to be found on itunes.
