      Here’s how to set up a World Class Home Studio for your Digital Coaching: 🏠

      Do you want to attain maximum productivity through the work you do?
      yes? Then have a clear demarcation of your personal space πŸ›Œ and work space! 🏒

      This is what a basic starter pack consists of for setting up a home studio in order to record Podcasts, Videos and conduct Webinars. πŸ’»
      Remember, don’t get overexcited and invest in the best of the best, you don’t have to waste your money, be frugal, don’t buy unless you really need it πŸ’Έ. Start off small and upgrade as you go.

      1) Audio Gear and Sound Quality 🎧:
      Coaches tend to focus on their Video Quality >>>> Sound Quality

      Types of Microphones: 🎀
      (i) Dynamic M – Plug & Play. No separate power source required, used for portable, moble and live performances.
      (ii) Condenser Microphones – Powered using USB. More sensitive to pick up sound as compared to Dynamic.

      Microphones have different pick-up features. Omnidirectional, Stereo, Bidirectional and Cardioid.
      You must ideally pick up a microphone with Cardioid where it only picks up sound from the front of the mic where you will be ideally speaking.

      Soundcard – Helps to capture the sound and send it straight to your system
      Types of Soundcards: (Based on inputs)
      (i) You just need 2 inputs (voice & recording something else) for home studio setup.
      All of them are USB powered. So, plug in to the PC and then connect your microphone to your Soundcard using an XLR-XLR Cable.

      Microphone Stand: πŸ”¬
      Scissor-Arm Stand. Rests on the table and the stand comes in from the side. Tripod stand not needed.
      FREEDOM TRAINER KIT offered at ilh.shop, all in one ( Microphone, stand, USB connect)

      2) Video Setup of Utmost Quality: πŸŽ₯
      Start off with Logitech C922 (10-15k) for good quality videos. Then you can move on to Canon DSLR (25-30k) and then finally a Sony A7M3 Mirrorless. Top notch quality (Rs 1.5 Lakh) πŸ“Έ
      Digitech Camera Tripod to set the Camera on it.

      Camera to Laptop can be connected using a HDMI Video Capture stick. Connect your Camera to this stick and then plug the stick into your PC.
      To ensure there’s good lighting – Digitech ZBF488 15-inch Ring Light. πŸ’‘

      3) Lighting Setup: ⚑
      Focus the lighting on your face. Minimal Light behind you. Let as much natural light hit your face.
      You can also go for some Background lights (later). Nanlite – brand which gives bg lights. Creates some depth.

      4) Studio Monitors (Not Mandatory):
      KRK Rocket 5 – Speaker Monitor – To help in editing and stuff.
      Headphones: 🎧
      Start off: Apple Headsets.
      Good Quality – Audio Technica 80HMX50
      Great Quality – BEAR Dynamic 1990 Pro

      5) Workstation: πŸ’»
      MacBook or PC. Make sure RAM is adequate. Mac is relatively the better Choice

      6) Softwares:
      IOS – MacBook
      (i) Garage Band to record
      (ii) Screen Flow to record videos
      (iii) E-Cam Live to record and live videos

      Windows
      (i) Camtasia
      (ii) Adobe Audition
      (iii) Audacity recording Audio

      7) App Setup:
      Video Editing – Spark Camera. Record small snipper videos for 1 min duration.
      In Shot- longer videos, add stickers. (IOS & Android)

      8) Room Setup: 😎
      No Echo in the room. You can Clap and make out the Echo.
      To remove Echo, add curtains and a sofa/couch/carpet to absorb the sound.
      One step ahead put 2 cushions/pillows next to you when recording audio.
      All this reduces Reverb and Echo.
      – Keep Speakers away from the walls

      Cheers to setting up your own home studio!

      Amazing and eye-opener podcast on setting up our home studio.
      You have shared all the basics and showed us the path on how to combine all the nuts and bolts to make the best home studio.

      Before listening to this podcast I was under the impression that setting up the studio is a very difficult task and only experts or professionals can do it. However, after listening to this my belief changed and I am very confident that I can also set up the best studio for my own.

      I learned the art of setting up the studio for the coaches mainly useful for doing webinars, record podcasts, and videos. This is enough for any trainer or coach to succeed in this industry.
      Below are the major setups required for setting up the home studio,

      1. Audio Set up:
      a. Microphones: Two types: Dynamic and condenser microphones. Cardioid microphones are best to use for the best quality of sounds. However, I will choose the Lewitt microphone advised by Sidz.
      b. Soundcard: The purpose of a sound card is to capture the sound and connect it with the system. There are multiple inputs possible in sound cards but for home studio maximum 2 inputs are good to go with. Again will fo with Audient soundcard advised by sidz. XLR cable is also required for the connections from microphone to system to sound card.
      c.A good Microphone Stand is also important for a good setup.

      2. Video Set up:
      a.For Webcam, Logitech C922/C930 to start is with
      b. Once you grow or going to the next level switch to Canon DLSR cameras or mirrorless cameras as advised by Siddharth.
      c.Good Camera Stand also plays an improtannt role.
      d. 15 inch Rign light is important to hit some good light on the face.
      e. HDMI Cable is important to connect the Camera to Laptop.

      3. Lightning Set up :
      a.Try to sit in the place where natural lights hit your face. Close to windows or something.
      b.Good lighting for the front face and background lights are also good for the best setup. As advised by Siddharth many multicolor lights are also available. Specially RGB Lights.

      4. Studio monitors:
      a.This is not that much necessary at the beginning level.
      b.Some sound speakers to listen their own and other related voices. KRK Rokit 5 or Dynaudio LYD 5 is best for this purpose.
      c.Good Headphones are the key. Apple headphones are good to go with.
      d.For next-level, Audio Technica ATH MX-50 Headphones are best suitable the requirements.

      5. Workstation Set up:
      a.MacBook Pro or any other Windows system with good RAM, processor, and graphic card is ok to go with.

      6. Softwares set up:
      a. GarageBand for the podcats records
      b.Screen flow for video editing
      c.Ecam live to use for record live videos and go live to multiple social media platforms
      d.Campatia is good for windows for video editing.
      e.Audacity is also good for record audios.

      7. Apps Set up:
      a.Spark Camera for IOS
      b.Inshot & Quik for IOS and anrioid
      c.iMovie for IOS
      d.above are the best tools for mobile video editing

      8. Room Set up:
      a. Ensure no Eco in the room. Check the same by various methods like the clapping method.
      b. Add curtains/Sofa/ carpet where you sit if more eco in the room.
      c. Keep some absorption material aside while recording the video or audio. This will improve the quality.

      Concluding the podcast, the best overview is given by Sidz in aspects of setting up the home studio.
      For starting level don’t spend too much, as sidz says become the minimalist. Hence go for the Freedom Trainer Kit from ILH Shop.

      As soon as your business grows, invest in high-end systems and tools.

      More Power to you all.

    • BSA AYYAPPA

      My key πŸ—οΈ takeaways are
      1. Let’s start with sound, there are 2 types of microphones πŸŽ™οΈ like Condenser and other one Dynamic, where as Dynamic πŸŽ™οΈ are used for Live performance on stages which has effect on audience to interact with them.
      Where as Condenser πŸŽ™οΈthey are powered source and have an USB connection and more sensitive than Dynamic πŸŽ™οΈ while picking up the Sound.

      What if I give speeches that require me to move around a room while speaking? What kind of mic would you recommend then? Shotgun?

      My Take away,
      1. Setting up home studio without is bit difficult but this amazing podcast has given me clear ideas for my set up.
      2. All tools at one place has given ready reference for even pricing. It is just click away hyperlink.
      3. Audio are the heart of podcast or video. Unless there is clarity in voice, no value of contents or any good video. Sound card sound good to me when I understand the value of this particular tool. Dual microphones are lovey and I never knew it will give incredible effects.
      4. sometimes we forget the role of cables but they are just like dendrites. I realised the importance when I replaced by cable of wifi and there was magical effect of connectivity.
      5. I have yet to purchase trainers kit from my lovely store of our community after a couple of other expenses.

      6. C922 hyper link gave the idea when I saw the price on amazon. I have desire, my ILH shop will contain similar kind of cams.
      7. Tripods are lovely when I am able to move my camera as per the disired direction. HTMI video capture? Oh it is new for me but this kind of tools I really want in near future.
      8. Ring lights will definitely play vital part when I record video. The background light during our inner circle is fantastic. My Godness, light matching with the cloths you wear. Lovely.
      9. Studio monitors are some of the models I will love being an artist of All India Radio. I never realised the importance of such monitors. Mixing of sound and effects are something I love.
      10. I love the way when you spell it while uttering tool names. It is just required to understand specifically.
      11. I will shift my gears with Macbook within next few months. I love macbook, and I will have shortly.
      12. Apps are really interesting gems.
      13. I clapped and checked vibration, You never miss any kind of small tips while talking or giving. Kind of sound obsorber I felt in AIR studio but it reminded me for very good sound quality I will have in my own studio in next few months.
      14. Frequently switching of Airconditioners and fans during recording is painful but I will have to do for undesirable sound.
      15. Lovely summary of tools for connecting dots. Low budget is always instructed by you. But I love the way you give nuggets through podcast for our future digital coaching journey.
      Hats of to you!
