German interface manufacturer RME – which will be exhibiting on booth 5150 at InfoComm 2019 – has announced an all-in-one audio bundle for professional podcasters looking to take their setups to the next level.
Available now, with other configurations rolling out soon, the new Babyface Pro/Audio-Technica Podcast Bundle is designed to offer podcasters broadcast-quality sound and flexibility by combining RME’s Babyface Pro audio interface and TotalMix FX mixing software with Audio-Technica’s BP40 condenser microphone.
RME’s Babyface Pro is a “reference-quality” interface with multiple ins/outs allowing for any combination of podcast setups. It has 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 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 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.
Optimised for broadcast applications, the A-T BP40 offers a rich, natural sound and the humbucking voice coil prevents unwanted interference. An On-Stage Clamp Desktop Boom Mic Stand and professional 10-foot microphone cable is also included.
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.
