We’ve written before about the Podcaster Pro, a self-contained audio production device being created by Small Batch Audio with the help of pioneering podcaster Adam Curry. When we last covered the Podcaster Pro, the device was still being ramped up for launch. Since then, the Podcaster Pro has been officially launched via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
As a quick recap, the Podcaster Pro is a USB-based audio interface designed to make recording high-quality audio as easy as possible. Here are some of the device’s features:
- 2 XLR mic inputs with 48v phantom power
- 1 stereo Skype/VoIP USB input
- 1 stereo computer/soundboard USB input
- 1 stereo mix-minus for Skype/VoIP via USB
- 1 stereo main via USB
- 1 stereo main analog out
- 2 headphone outputs with independent volume controls
- 4 independent noise gates
- 5 compressors/limiters
- 2 A-class preamps
- 5 independent EQs
- 2 cough switches
Backers of the crowdfunding campaign can reserve a Podcaster Pro starting at the early-bird price of $497. Special Podcaster Pro bundles that include accessories like microphones and headphones are also available.
Special signature models of the Podcaster Pro that are etched with signatures from podcasting luminaries can be reserved thru the campaign. Signature models for Adam Curry, Todd Cochrane, Dan Benjamin, Brian Brushwood, and more are available.
The Podcaster Pro campaign has reached 16% of its $500,000 goal. The campaign has a month left before it expires.
