AKG has released the AKG Podcaster Essentials bundle in the UK, designed to give podcasters, video producers and content creators a professional edge.
During the lockdown period, many professionals – including installers – are turning to podcasting as a way to stay connected to the outside world.
The AKG Lyra is an ultra-HD, multi-mode USB microphone that delivers 24-bit, 192 kHz audio quality, with four versatile capture modes suited to a wide range of recording applications. AKG K371 headphones provide clear, detailed sound with 50mm drivers and a closed-back design for sound isolation. Ableton Live 10 Lite is a streamlined audio production platform that allows users to quickly and easily record and edit professional podcasts.
“Today’s podcasters and content creators need versatile, powerful audio solutions that enable them to create the highest quality productions that stand apart from the crowd,” says Chris Hansen, Director of Recording and Content Creation, Harman Professional Solutions. “The AKG Podcaster Essentials bundle provides everything creators need to transform their computer into a professional-quality podcasting studio.”
The AKG Lyra boasts an acoustically transparent, 4K-compatible, Ultra HD-grade 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution. Lyra features the AKG Adaptive Capsule Array, which provides four optimised capture modes that makes it easy to deliver professional sound for any application.
An internal self-adjusting shock mount minimises contact noise, while a built-in sound diffuser and AKG’s proprietary Internal Element Overload Prevention automatically reduces noise, eliminates pops and improves signal levels. Plug-and-play simplicity enables creators to set up and start recording quickly, regardless of experience level.
AKG K371 professional studio headphones combine performance, accuracy and comfort in a compact, folding design that’s ideal for production in the studio or on location. An over-ear, closed-back design is optimised to provide isolation in noisy environments and prevents sound bleed into the AKG Lyra.
Ableton Live 10 Lite is a fast, flexible, lightweight version of Ableton’s flagship Live 10 audio production software. With intuitive features for editing together takes, sweetening vocal recordings, adding sound effects and even creating custom theme and background music, Live 10 Lite gives podcasters everything they need to quickly and easily produce professional podcasts.
The four-part Berklee Online course provides a broad introduction to audio production, from microphones to multitracking including recording gear and techniques, working with digital audio, critical listening, polishing mixes, and much more.
