As podcasting becomes more common, DIY tendencies grow stronger, and the desire to leave one’s mark on this earth through self-publishing grows, it is no surprise that products such as the Alesis USB Mic Podcasting Kit have emerged onto the market.
The coolest things about this particular product are its ease of use and its affordability. The Alesis USB Podcasting Kit plugs right into your Mac or PC without the usual need for preamps, plug-ins and audio interface expertise. You’ll still need to install software, but this solution is far more user-friendly than more elaborate setups.
Wired Magazine gave this product ‘best-features-to-price-ratio’ recognition because the kit offers pretty good quality sound, is extremely easy to use and costs just $100. Anybody that has dealt with preamps, interfaces, plug-ins, and more knows that $100 is chump change in comparison.
Now becoming the next podcasting celebrity is not that outlandish--or at least, not cost-prohibitive or extremely complicated. You’ve gotta love a level podcasting field!
