Uphoria

On Wednesday, we recorded our first episode with the new podcast setup.

I get excited about things like this. This recording was truly a momentous occasion, not only because we had a brilliant guest, but because for the first time ever we recorded a proper episode with a guest with 3 dedicated mic inputs. Before this, we used to share a mic between us (Himal and I), while the guest had another.

The audio interface we used previously (Scarlette 2i2 – 1st Gen, which I had borrowed from a friend) records audio at 96 kHz natively, while the new Behringer U-PHORIA UMC404HD records at 192 kHz. This should give more clarity to the sound, and I should have more room to play around with level adjustments and such while editing.

Gear

I bought some near gear for the podcast.

New foldable mic stands:

New 4x input Audio Interface:

This was only $125 on Amazon for Black Friday. A full $100 off. I couldn’t resist.

Now we can easily record guest episodes without having to share mics.

Facelift

We changed the look and feel of the podcast website a little bit. Have a look: thebadtake.com

Along with it, the podcast logo and thumbnails are changing, too. We will use these typefaces and design style whenever promotional material are created in the future.

Typefaces:

New logo:

New episode thumbnail for Anchor and all other podcast platforms we’re on:

New episode thumbnail for YouTube:

And that’s that.
