It is a very useful video for beginners and those who want to improve themselves. Thanks for sharing with us this nice video. Greetings… 🙂 Reply Football Greatest says: September 17, 2019 at 8:20 am SUBSCRIBE to me and I'll do the same (comment done then I know that I can SUBSCRIBE to you) Reply Emmanuella Alliali says: September 17, 2019 at 8:23 am I was just wondering about that ! Thank you !! Reply 1,000 subscribers with out video says: September 17, 2019 at 8:23 am Cool tips bro thanks Reply Emmanuella Alliali says: September 17, 2019 at 8:24 am Is there a video on how to make money from podcast if you are a small youtuber and how can you be successful in that area? Reply How to Medicate says: September 17, 2019 at 8:25 am I am already at 700 subs because of you! Thanks 👍 Reply Mundo Despierto says: September 17, 2019 at 8:27 am Nice but out of budget for most..there’s far cheaper stuff out there that can match the quality presented. Reply Sleeping Elephant says: September 17, 2019 at 8:32 am Thanks. for showing the setup. Like the portability of it. Didn't know you needed a cloudlifter with the Zoom H6. Reply Ivaylo Keremidarski says: September 17, 2019 at 8:37 am What do you think of the Rode PodMic? Reply Technik Meister says: September 17, 2019 at 8:48 am Great tips but you can do it far cheaper. With the camera and all that gear, you are up for $5k+. There are audio processing programs you can run on a laptop while you are taking live video that save you heaps. They are far more powerful than stand alone processors. They filter and enhance the sound from even a cheap lapel mike. A camera like the Panasonic G7 can give you 90% of the quality of the Sony for $500 and you also do not need to go to 4K. 1080-30 is perfectly fine and requires 25% of the storage and processing power. Don't forget that most podcast viewers watch them on their PC, laptop of on the smart phone. 4K is totally unnecessary. If you want to, start spending more when you have 500k subscribers. Alwaya make sure your investmentsin gear are funded by your Youtube revenue. You are not running a TV studio here. Reply Tomas George says: September 17, 2019 at 8:51 am Great video! I personally prefer the RE20 mic for podcasts and voiceovers, however, the SM7b is still awesome and to does look a little cooler than the RE20, but I do think the RE20 picks up some of the deeper sounds a bit better and gives more of that classic radio tone. I think lots of people now go for the SM7b because it’s a little cheaper, looks slicker for video, and also Joe Rogan and a few other popular podcasters use it. Anyways, it’s still a great mic, and your video was very informative! Reply Shinil Payamal says: September 17, 2019 at 8:57 am Awesome setup. Thanks for sharing. Reply Tomas George says: September 17, 2019 at 9:00 am Cool tip about filming in 4K and then cropping down to 1080 with 3 angles! Reply Travis Dunn says: September 17, 2019 at 9:04 am The mics are top notch but like many say a bit over priced. I would have swapped the mic amps and zoom recorder and bought a rode podcaster board. It does 4 mic channel recording, individual level, ability to pull in audio from phone or PC for guest not on site. It also has up to 4 headphone Jack's for lag free listening. Reply The Boring Channel says: September 17, 2019 at 9:06 am Hey think media thank you for these amazing tips and strategies to grow fast a channel .Finally I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and take action to reach success.I've even created a channel to track my progress and share my story .I've uploaded my first video ,and I am working on my secon .Please go and check it out qnd subscribe ,because I need your support .Thank you Reply AccidentalBroadcast says: September 17, 2019 at 9:23 am You should probably tell your fans what a cloud lifter is and does 🙂 Reply Front End Nexus says: September 17, 2019 at 9:44 am Frankly I'm amazed at the number of comments so far saying this is too expensive and that you can get similar results a lot cheaper. And they are not wrong. But sometimes you pay for convenience, for reliability, for aesthetic appeal. This is obviously a premium-level setup. Is this the best setup possible for this price? Most likely not. Is there a "perfect" setup? Unlikely. Can you get a "close enough" result cheaper? Definitely. Pick and choose what works for you and what you can afford. An entry-level smartphone is everything the vast majority of people need, yet $1000+ flagship phones still sell quite well. Your smartphone with an external mic and a pair of lights might be all you need to record a video podcast. All this being said, how do you deal with video length for longer sessions? "Normal" cameras, to my knowledge, have a time limit for recording videos, to avoid being classified as "video recording equipment" which gets taxed more. Reply Piotr Wojnowski says: September 17, 2019 at 9:50 am And what about Tascam recorders? Reply DuffLaw Digital says: September 17, 2019 at 9:52 am Sean, Love your channel, I watch all the time! New YouTuber, our channel is just launching this week! But I"m having video editing issues, maybe you can help????? I have just purchased the MSI gaming laptop, plenty of power, top line graphic card, 32 RAM, etc. I was having some rendering and performance issues prior, thought this new laptop would resolve those issues. Surprisingly, I'm still having problems. Not sure if it is rendering or what, but video appears to load, in editing software, both vid & audio, but the audio runs and the vid is frozen.??? Any ideas? I'm using Windows, and trying both Movavi & DaVinci – both having similar issues, so I presume that means its a computer, or hardware, not a software issue? Any thoughts or suggestions?VIEW •VIEW • Reply CaracolaBella says: September 17, 2019 at 9:58 am Thank you, this is good stuff. Not there yet but maybe one day! Reply Greg D says: September 17, 2019 at 10:04 am Nothing about what the cloud filter thing does??? Just say we need one with the Shure. Reply Fary De Leon says: September 17, 2019 at 10:23 am This is not good for bigginers, Ufff very expensive equipment.Can you do a low budget podcast equipment video? Reply Atheeq says: September 17, 2019 at 10:37 am Great video! loved it Reply gen compartit says: September 17, 2019 at 10:44 am buy a tripod , the camera is moving all the time Reply The Moe and O Photo Show Podcast says: September 17, 2019 at 11:03 am Nice! We have a WAY cheaper option for our video podcast if anyone is starting out. Samson 2QU mics into a Zoom H5. Line out cable into the camera for audio backup. Sony a6400 for recording ourselves. Works and sounds great 👍 Reply Mia Diva Rodriguez says: September 17, 2019 at 11:18 am Omar, did a great job on this vid. The info was amazing. But I do think this set up isn't practical costwise for more of a begginer. Also what is the purpose of the Cloudlifter? And is it really necessary when using it with a different mic than that in the vid? Reply Casluin Reyes says: September 17, 2019 at 11:26 am I start one already but I need to upgrade thanks for the video it help me alot… Reply How to Get An 800 Credit Score. says: September 17, 2019 at 11:34 am Great video Reply Passive Income Tom says: September 17, 2019 at 11:45 am This was really good information and tips!👍 Reply Eren forced me to write this says: September 17, 2019 at 11:51 am Are you gonna do another video on editing audio? cause you didnt even mention how you edit your audios, softwares you use/ settings etc. Left out the main part dude Reply FatheringAutism says: September 17, 2019 at 1:12 pm You guys should review the RODE Podmic. For 1/4 the price it picks up way less plosions and pops and sounds just as good as the SMB7. Reply Mel W says: September 17, 2019 at 1:54 pm I have not started but this video is what I needed to get started. Reply Mark Hooks says: September 17, 2019 at 1:58 pm Http://anchor.fm/GulfwarillnessGood info, I appreciate all the knowledge Think Media offers. I recently started podcasting and am now researching Video cameras on a budget to start a youtube channel. I would love to see what your recomendations are for this. Do you have a video addressing some affordable cameras that will do the job? Looking forward to hearing your opinion. Reply Arran Heaton says: September 17, 2019 at 2:05 pm the shure sm7b a dynamic mic and not a condenser and you definitely don't need a cloud lifter… A different preamp, maybe. Reply Elizabeth's Life & Style says: September 17, 2019 at 2:08 pm This is amazing it made me feel like I did the right thing for my start up kit😅 Reply Juleen Powell says: September 17, 2019 at 2:11 pm Wish you had offer other cheaper alternative mics…hmmm. That's not affortable for most people. Reply The Irreverent Show says: September 17, 2019 at 2:15 pm Again another “how to start a podcast” by breaking the bank video. All of this stuff is great yes. But, totally unnecessary to start a good sounding podcast. Much cheaper and just as effective options to begin with. You can have all this high end equipment and have a garbage podcast. This guy quoting $1000 to 2000 for a one to two mic show is ridiculous. Even buying a rodcaster pro right now with four podmics from rose gets you at $1000 and you’ll be up in running quicker than this. Reply TheAndySan says: September 17, 2019 at 2:35 pm #QOTD: I haven't started a podcast yet, but I'm trying to figure out what I want to talk about. I definitely want guests on so it's not just me talking for an hour. But my biggest fear with starting a podcast is being engaging for an hour or more straight. It's the same reason I don't do streaming consistently. I prefer the comparatively short videos so that my audience doesn't have to worry about a long watch time commitment upfront. Reply F2V2 Productions says: September 17, 2019 at 2:59 pm The heck is a cloudlifter? What does it do? Why do I need one? Why wouldn't I need one? Really should have done better with that….

Sean… You loom different. Good video though. Reply Slav Guns says: September 17, 2019 at 3:35 pm Video needs to be better scripted out. Avoid generalities like "you will never have to buy ever." Reply Slav Guns says: September 17, 2019 at 3:39 pm And absolutely no need to spend that much to get started with good equipment. Reply Zach Church says: September 17, 2019 at 4:45 pm Thanks for the video. I really enjoyed it for the most part but the iPhone clicking every time a lower 3rd pops up was driving me nuts. Personally, I think you are drawing too much attention to the title. Anyway, thanks for the content. Reply Charlie Liddle says: September 17, 2019 at 4:56 pm I really enjoyed this video! But I couldn’t find the link to the video where he shows you how to edit podcasts. Reply J.R. Fisher Training says: September 17, 2019 at 4:56 pm Thanks for this. The problem that i have is that when I use two different camera angles, the colors are always different and don't match. Any suggestions? Reply Steve Minton says: September 17, 2019 at 5:06 pm Where is the video about editing audio and video? Reply VaughnTwins says: September 17, 2019 at 5:49 pm Yyeeaaaahhh!!!! Thank you for sharing this!!!!! 😊😊😊 Reply simianinc says: September 17, 2019 at 6:46 pm No pop filter? Reply The RCNetwork says: September 17, 2019 at 7:24 pm Great info. I’ve become a podcast fan since gaining an hour commute for work. Reply Dream Builder Lab says: September 17, 2019 at 7:25 pm If your mic in your opinnion is 10 of 10, a Blue Yeti would be 8/10 or 9/10? Or are they completely different? And what setup would I use for record a podcast alone using my Blue Yeti? And what is the best for online courses? A Blue Yeti or a lavalier mic? Thanks in advance. Reply Mark Alan Hemphill says: September 17, 2019 at 7:26 pm Do you guys have any videos out there to just get started? We are just not to the point where we’d want to drop $1000 to get started with something we don’t know if it will be successful. I know you get what you pay for, but still. Reply Robbie Bowman says: September 17, 2019 at 8:07 pm I just started a podcast called “Chasing Robbie Trails” (name still up in the air). I am known for chasing rabbit trails and they often times lead to amazing discoveries. I’m working with a cheap mic right now as budget is almost in the negative. I started it because I usually make excuses instead of just doing it. I can’t wait to upgrade my equipment. Literally everything I use needs upgraded. The sound quality of my podcast isn’t that great. Reply Brad Poirier says: September 17, 2019 at 8:21 pm Yo. I hate to be negative. But 3:17 – its a CORD not CHORD. A chord is a music reference… I hate to be that guy but… 😂😂 Reply 6B Vlogs says: September 17, 2019 at 10:39 pm I use ElectroVoice Re20 Studio Mic 🎙..it is the Radio Station Microphone..paired with Cloudlifter CL1 and Yamaha MGX10 Mixer..it’s a killer setup..loved it ❤️ Reply Up In The Booth says: September 17, 2019 at 11:12 pm Great video! Will be upgrading my audio equipment soon to this Shure set up! My podcast is about working as a Projectionist and film in general 👍🏻🎞️ Reply Nik Goodner says: September 17, 2019 at 11:46 pm Are there any special settings you use for the Zoom H6? I can’t seem to get mine to record with the Shure SM7b? Reply Kapowcast says: September 18, 2019 at 12:25 am Our youtube actually steamed from our podcast, we started the podcast on the topic of comics and such, then branched to YouTube not too long ago with action figure reviews, unboxing, and toy hunts. Reply Marc2brazyy says: September 18, 2019 at 12:43 am Who wanna grow together Reply Thorndike Productions says: September 18, 2019 at 1:55 am Only just started a podcast with the first episode being uploaded yesterday. It covers films, film gear and the filmmaking process. Also, thanks for the recommendations on gear for proper podcasting. I'm kinda stuck using a lapel mic at the moment. Reply laevavictoria says: September 18, 2019 at 4:05 am This is super helpful!!! Thanks so much Reply Anurag Sharma says: September 18, 2019 at 4:14 am Why not the Rodecaster pro? I think that would have been a better investment Reply Qwik Thai says: September 18, 2019 at 5:21 am I have the H6 but the preamps dont feed enough gain without raising the noise floor. Buying cloudlifters, or anything similar, especially with multiple mics, is a good albeit expensive solution. It also adds more stuff to keep track of. My suggestion is to go with something like the zoom F4 ,the newer F6 or the mixpre sound devices such as the mixpre3, which have more than enough clean gain and you can do away with more bits and pieces to lose and keep your setup neat and tidy. Reply Kevin Lamarr says: September 18, 2019 at 5:45 am I’m starting a podcast on trucks and tools. I’m going to do another one on racial politics. I’m going to use my iPhone 10xr to get started. I have the leverlor mike Reply Mark Murphy says: September 18, 2019 at 7:50 am Rode NT1A + Cheap mic arm + Zoom R16 and I do professional VO for TV and radio. Total cost about £300 used. Reply Adrian Kerr says: September 18, 2019 at 9:47 am I think 2 x Shure SM58 connected to the Zoom H6 is a better option and way way cheaper. Reply Andy George Leadership says: September 18, 2019 at 11:34 am Great video. I love using the SM7B. Great sound. I have been running them into the RODECaster Pro for podcasting and audio recording. Reply Azim Kaamran says: September 18, 2019 at 12:44 pm Great value. I don't think I have come across any channel who does an in-depth technical review which would help the people making decisions. (Other than those who buy and do product reviews just for the sake of it). Thank you! Reply Preston House says: September 18, 2019 at 12:48 pm Looking forward to the other videos. would love to see your editing workflow. Reply Theology Thursday says: September 18, 2019 at 4:58 pm My podcast is all about theology. It’s currently audio only. Been considering going to video too. Reply Rick Watson says: September 18, 2019 at 7:21 pm It was said earlier…but that tip to shoot in 4K then output to 1080 and cropping for "virtual" 3 angles literally set off the "light bulb"!!! Reply Mohamed Swilam says: September 18, 2019 at 9:28 pm I have a question, i have my own channel now, however i want to create new different type of content, so my question is: should i create new channel or just create a playlist on my current channel ?

Reply Bobby Corser says: September 19, 2019 at 6:30 am Mic cord not chord. Not strumming them Reply Josh Hardin says: September 19, 2019 at 4:02 pm monitoring headphones: I strongly recommend using decent studio monitor headphones for monitoring your input and mixing. A proper monitor headphone will allow you to hear every little nuance of audio in a very flat manner, it's not suppose to "sound good" to you with extra bass or whatever, it's supposed to sound super flat so you can hear every detail so when you monitor and mix, you get extra clean audio and you can let others' pleasure-listening headphones hide some of the minor crimes leftover from the occasional mastering issue… Proper studio monitoring headphones really don't have to be expensive and my general recommendation is the excellent MDR-V6 studio eadphones from sony. you'll see these in almost every behind the scenes video you'll see on professional movie shoots and only cost about $70. https://amzn.to/2O64buW – while headphones you already own are better than going without audio monitoring or worse, not taking the time to do post production on your audio at all, proper studio phones will almost certainly guarantee higher quality output because it makes it easier to get everything right. 80% of good video is having good audio. Reply IAWCA Podcast says: September 19, 2019 at 9:56 pm How do I get to the videos about editing videos that you mention in this video? Can seem to find the link or the video anywhere? Of course, I could be blind and just missing it too. Thanks Reply Kris Eriksen says: September 20, 2019 at 1:53 pm why are there no pop filters on those mics? When you included the audio in you filming the pops were so annoying. Also what post-production software do you use? You need to get some low and high pass filters onto those recording. Equipment is fair enough, but the production doesn't end there. Reply Country Family Homestead says: September 20, 2019 at 4:56 pm Probably should add a tripod for the camera. 🤭 Reply Only Nice Things says: September 22, 2019 at 3:10 am That clicking noise when any sort of on screen text comes on was a little distracting. At first I thought it was some sort of technical glitch on my end Reply Jonathan Chang says: September 23, 2019 at 12:05 am Omar, you famous! Reply eGPlearning says: September 23, 2019 at 5:23 pm What does the cloudlifter do? This wasn't covered in the video….? Reply The Trail Hunter says: September 24, 2019 at 11:01 am That sound switch blew my mind! Was that edited at all? It really cleared out the room noise. Thanks very much for this video. Reply Daniel Elliott says: October 1, 2019 at 12:29 am If you're doing a video podcast should you record the audio on the H6 at 48 Khz (video standard) or 44.1 Khz (Audio-only standard)? Since the two sample rates differ, should you resample the audio from the one sample rate to the different one so both the video and audio-only distribution have the standard sample rates?

Reply Robert Germyn says: November 8, 2019 at 2:08 pm For studio interviews etc,I would think starting with basic HD quality would suffice. Audio would be key quality higher end podcast. . People doing niche podcasts would be more focused on content an quality? Spending big bucks starting out is not a real prerequisite.
