Good overview, Richard.

I think the advice to listen to a few first is spot on. Too many people get into recording and production before they know where they’re going.

The only advice I’d change is that I’d recommend a good pair of headphones and a decent digital recorder. Using something like the Zoom H1 gives a clean source and has the advantage of having very good mic’s built in. Going with the recorder means no computer noise in the background and gives the cleanest possible source.

This *is* a great way to build a platform and to find out if there’s an audience for your work. The best way to build that audience is to keep pumping out work. Nothing builds fans like fresh content.

Yes headphones are a must. In the end I had a good mic, good headphones and decent sound card in a old but trusty PC in an upstairs (quiet) room. I actually stretched an old stocking over a wire clothes hanger in later episodes to reduce pops and breath sounds.

Belinda I don’t know how to get listed – I imagine like all news sites if you have content of relevance they might cover it
