GOtham Gear Check
Gotham Podcast Studios and Gotham Production Studios, LLC are always looking for ways to improve not only ourselves, but your podcast sound. Our commitment to quality means updating and upgrading when a new piece of technology or feature is released. Below is a list of the equipment both hardware and software used in all of Gotham Podcast Studios locations.
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.
