RME will launch an all-in-one audio bundle for professional podcasting at an affordable price. Available now, with other configurations rolling out soon, the new Babyface Pro/Audio-Technica Podcast Bundle offers podcasters broadcast-quality sound and ultimate flexibility by combining RME’s intuitive Babyface Pro audio interface and TotalMix FX mixing software with Audio-Technica’s BP40 Condenser Microphone.
The RME’s Babyface Pro is a “reference-quality” interface with multiple ins/outs allowing for any combination of podcast setups. With two high-precision mic preamps, two headphone outputs for simple host/guest monitoring and the ability to configure a “mix-minus” setup as separate audio sources, the Babyface Pro is the ultimate audio interface for podcasters. The Babyface Pro also allows for independent adjustment of sound settings for every source, individual headphone mixes for up to six guests and is compatible with any recording software as well as Mac, Windows and iOS.
As with all RME interfaces, the Babyface Pro comes complete with the free TotalMix FX Remote iPad app which as previously mentioned allows users to configure the “mix-minus” setup as separate audio sources. This allows podcasters to control what guests and listeners hear with no additional cables, mixer or hardware. Users can also mix multiple software applications simultaneously for adding music beds, sound effects and other audio clips to a podcast.
The final piece of the bundle is a Podcast Engineering School Educational Course (a $595 value). This online course provides an overview of the podcast production workflow using a Babyface Pro. The course covers setting up a Babyface Pro, production scenarios and tips, recording online guests and post-production tips.
With a total value of $2,867, the Babyface Pro/Audio-Technica Podcast Bundle is available now for only $1,299.
