An iOS Podcasting Rig

Macgasm’s Joshua Schnell has posted his thoughts on using an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad as an iOS podcasting rig.

Count him as converted:

Today my system consisted of Mic > Mixer > iRig > iPod touch. It worked out a lot better than I thought it would. So well in fact that I might continue using the setup moving forward.

The benefits that I’ve found with the iPod touch setup is that it frees up my computer from recording, and gets the audio files directly onto a mobile device. You can then send the files one by one directly over email, or sync your computer to get the files into iTunes.

It’s not the best setup on the planet, but it goes to show that you don’t need much more than an iOS device and a decent microphone to record an audio podcast these days.

An iOS podcasting rig won’t replace the capabilities of a computer-based solution and won’t be a good fit for many podcasting situations.

But that doesn’t mean that an iPod touch or iPhone, combined with a decent mic and a multi-track recording app, can’t be used to create a great-sounding podcast.
