Gotham Podcast Studios and Gotham Production Studios, LLC are always looking for ways to improve not only ourselves, but your podcast sound.

Rode Procaster 

The RØDE Procaster is a professional broadcast quality dynamic microphone, specifically designed to offer no-compromise performance for voice applications in the broadcast environment.

Featuring a tight polar pattern and tailored-for-voice frequency response, the Procaster is perfect for every application where a great sounding, robust microphone with superior ambient noise rejection is demanded.

The Procaster features an internal pop filter, designed to minimise plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.

Its high output dynamic capsule and balanced low impedance output make it an ideal broadcast and voice over microphone.

 

The RODE PSA1 Studio Boom Arm/Shock Mount

The RODE PSA1 studio boom arm is perfect for radio, broadcast, or home use. Designed to fit unobtrusively into your studio, this easy-to-use and continuously adjustable boom arm gives you full 360-degree access to your microphone, with a stable horizontal and vertical reach of nearly three feet! The PSA1 can easily accommodate microphones weighing up to 2.4 lbs., making it an ideal desk stand for most broadcast-style microphones. Hook-and-loop wraps keep your cables out of the way, and a set of attachments provide multiple mounting options for your RODE PSA1 stand.
