How to Record a Podcast in the Connection Room

Welcome to the Coral Chairs Room!

Here’s how to start recording audio:
  1. Locate the Rodecaster Pro 2 Mixer on the small table in between the chairs.
  2. On the back of the mixer, hold down the on button to turn on the machine. When everything lights up and the screen has loaded you can continue.
  3. You’ll see a USB cord attached the to back of the mixer which plugs into your computer (this is a USB-C plug- a USB plug can be found on the window sill and switched out for this one based on your computer.)
  4. Plug it into your computer.
  5. 2 mics are plugged into the mixer and ready to go for you.
  6. In your recording software (we recommend Descript. Zoom works great for virtual interviews. Or you can record with the video player native to your computer.) Find the drop down to choose your microphone and choose Rodecaster Pro 2 (and default if it asks/shows multiple options.)
  7. When recording, we recommend keeping the mic within a fist distance of your mouth and speaking into the top of it.
To Capture Video:
  1. We have 3 video options available: the Sony ZV-1 blogging camera, Razer webcam or you can use your iPhone as your webcam (this is what I often do.)
  2. For the Sony ZV-1:

    turn the camera on and place it in movie mode. Toggle through the menu to Camera Settings 2 and choose USB Streaming. Then plug the camera into your computer using the USB cord provided (a USB to USB-C converter is available in your room if needed.) In your recording platform choose the Sony camera from the drop down (may be named something else on your computer) and you’re all set to record. **Note: the battery does run out quickly on this but when plugged into your computer it will give it a charge.

  3. For the Razer webcam: 

    Simply plug the camera into your computer, place on top of your computer or on a stand and choose Razer Kiyo (might appear under a different name on your computer) in your recording platform from the drop down in video options.

  4. Using your iPhone as a webcam: If you have an Apple Computer and an iPhone follow these instructions to use it as your webcam.
