Creating a Podcast: Inside look into our Recording Studio
Here’s a quick look at the PAGATIM studio, our equipment, our editing software, and our amazing producers behind it all!
The PAGATIM studio is the heart and center of our Coop! Seeing the many musicians, podcasters, audiobook authors, and small businesses record amazing content encourages us that our intimate studio setting is working to our benefit. The size and set up of our studio allows clients to get comfortable and share their brave, authentic stories without hesitation.
Our studio is fully equipped to produce, record, and edit high quality audio. Our studio team includes audio producers- Todd and Alex– with years of experience in commercial radio and voice over, producing for National Public Radio, and music production. Whether you’re a musician wanting to record an album, in need of recording a radio ad, or want to be an internet radio or podcast star, we have the equipment to help you!
OUR EQUIPMENT INCLUDES:
- Pro Tools LE and Hindenburg Journalist Pro software
- Mackie Onyx 1620i Firewire recording mixer
- (4) Shure SM7B radio microphones
- Beyerdynamic M58 Field Microphone
- (4) AKG Percephon 120 MRS
- Behringer MDX 4600 audio processor
- Furman HDS-6 headphone distribution system with individual remote mixers
- Dell Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHZ
THE AUDIO RECORDING EQUIPMENT
Our studio features an isolated main tracking room, a control room and an editing station. Our main recording room has an interview table equipped with 4 broadcast quality microphones on boom stands and individual headphone mixers. Musicians will enjoy our intimate and flexible tracking room equipped with 4 condenser microphones, mic stands, and of course, our well-trained and audio-loving producers.
In the control room, talkback and sight capabilities allow producers and hosts or musicians to communicate between the control room and tracking room. This allows for great collaboration, coaching, and overall recording confidence. We have a 16-channel Firewire recording mixer, and use Pro Tools and Hindenburg pro audio software to record and edit digitally.
We have made our studio feel just like a home recording studio, between the comfortable sofas, common area and communal kitchen space. The difference from a home recording studio is that we have a team of expert producers to coach you, and we have a professional audio recording studio layout with some of the best recording and editing equipment.
Imagine setting a goal to lose ten pounds before September. How much easier would it be if you had an in-house gym and a live-in personal trainer? This is what our PAGATIM studio and producers can offer you, an easier, more efficient way to create your best, most engaging audio content. Just as a personal trainer will make you look your best, our production team will make you sound your best!
PORTLAND STUDIO LOCATION, GLOBAL RECORDING CAPABILITIES
Having an out-of-town guest join your podcast is always an effective addition, and we have the tools to make this happen smoothly. No one likes to listen to a skype call that is scratchy and continually going in and out of service! For anyone not located in Portland, we have a dedicated Skype computer and phone line system within our control room, which makes interviewing someone, or having a co-host located anywhere in the world easy while still sounding fantastic.
Take for example, Another Mother Runner, in which Sarah comes into the studio as she is located in Portland but her co-host, Dimity, calls in from Colorado. Check out the AMR podcast and listen to how clear Dimity can be heard through the call!
If you are unfamiliar with the world of audio recording, internet radio, or podcasting, but looking for a new way to reach your target audience more efficiently, we can show you why a podcast is the way to go!
