Podcasting Grows Thanks to Affordable Home Recording

Audio MixerToday is a very exciting day for home recording and podcasting. Marc Maron, the misanthropic comedy guru who turned the comedy podcast into a phenomenon, is welcoming his biggest scoop ever. President Barack Obama will be on his podcast WTF, recorded in his garage.

This kind of news shows just how far the art of podcasting has come over the last few years. It is a testament to the openness of the Internet, the popularity of this formerly niche format, and the advances in home recording technology that has facilitated podcaster’s across the globe.

We have played our part by offering mixers, microphones, and other gear at prices that are easily accessible. The results has been a media explosion that has now landed at the highest halls of political power. For anyone who has been paying attention podcasting has been a slowly growing snowball achieving new milestones with each passing month and every passing year. There was Serial, the incredibly popular true crime exploration, hitting a million downloads. There has been the success of Chris Hardwick, jumping from his Nerdist podcast to a position akin to being the hipster Ryan Seacrest with a number of television projects.

In a way it was only a matter of time until Marc Maron was trying to get the occupant of the White House to open up at the Cat Ranch.

Fitmotion: Know Your Health

Activity TrackerA recent study suggested that, whether they heed the warnings or not, consumers generally like to know the ingredients and calories in what they are eating. Awareness is important when it comes to health and knowing what we put in our bodies allows us the chance to make wiser choices.

The recent phenomena of step tracking technology available on wearable wristbands and “watches” has been received in comparably positive ways. Most people think they have a sense of how much they walk but when those details are ironed out into numbers it can be surprising. In many cases people think they walk more than they actually do. When they find out the truth small changes seem smart, such as taking the stairs.

If you would like to become more aware of your health getting a Fitmotion Smart Activity Tracker is an excellent first step. Learn your patterns and start to adjust to a more healthy and active lifestyle starting from day one!

Digital Drums Are Here To Stay

Digital Drum PadThe drum pad has had a strange life in popular music. From its early days as an integral part of the sound of German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk to its short lived heyday as a central instrument in a variety of synth-pop bands in the 1980’s through it’s more than 30 year run as an option for everyone from Nine Inch Nails to St. Vincent, electronic drums have developed something of a storied history.

Electronic drums were initially created to accurately approximate the sound of live drums in a more affordable, more easily amplified, and more easily transported guise. While the accuracy of those sounds was questionable many musicians found incredible uses for the new devices and their particular capabilities. These days the machines can more accurately create the sounds of real drums or they can offer an endless range of sonic possibilities far beyond the range of sound found on original drum machines.

Pyle Audio has taken the electronic drums even further into a range of easy affordability. No longer prohibitively expensive bedroom recording artists and rich pop stars alike can now wield these nifty devices in service of their next songs!

Own Your Own Mic for Reliable Performances

Mobile Audio EquipmentMany performers pride themselves on being able to put on a solid show no matter what the environment. Whether dealing with hostile audiences, bad weather, or some other indignity many performers say rougher shows truly test their talent and commitment. That said, a lack of professionalism on the part of those in charge of sound equipment can be the hardest defeat to take. If a microphone does not work a bad show falls on neither on the performer or the audience.

This is the kind of thing that has lead innumerable performers to invest in their own microphones and even, in some cases, PA systems and sound mixers. By having their own equipment singers, rappers, storytellers, comedians, and other performers can ensure that in any venue they are heard. It can be the difference between converting a crowd into fans and leaving a room full of people nonplused about your very presence there.

Pyle Audio makes owning your own audio equipment easy to do and even goes out of its way to make the equipment mobile. Shop around today!
