Podcasts are an increasingly popular way to promote one’s endeavors or just to entertain; however, many people lack the equipment and technical expertise to start their own production. Our Audio Senior Project group – Matt Alexander, Brant Boettger, Lucas Daniels, Eric Poplawski, and Alex Westphal – are working to set up an on-campus podcast studio in room T113 of the UTLC building. This project is intended to provide LTU students, faculty, and staff with an outlet for recording high quality podcasts, and a knowledgeable staff to assist them. Guests will also have the option of live streaming and video capabilities. We intend for the project to be completed by early May, coinciding with the end of the semester.
There isn't much in the room right now but with your help, we can transform this room into a fully functioning Podcast Studio. We recently acquired some tables for the room to help make it look like more than an empty room, but there's still so much needed to make it what we want. We hope to have a total of four microphones so that shows of all sizes can record here. We're also hoping to have video equipment so that the podcasts can be streamed live on Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, or any other platforms.
We currently have a goal of $4000. With that amount we will be able to get all the equipment we need make this studio the best it can be. That includes professional microphones, an audio interface and mixing board, video equipment for streaming or just recording, microphone accessories such as pop filters, boom stands, shock mounts, and all of the proper cabling.
We have the room, the plans, and the know-how to get this studio up and running, all we need now is your support. Please consider donating to our project. Any amount will help, but we do have a few donation levels to select from if you aren't certain of what amount you would like to donate. Thank you for your support!
