Recommended Professional Audio Equipment for Entrepreneurs

Here’s the audio gear setup I use to create high-quality professional audio (listen to an example here):

Heil PR40 Podcasting Microphone *

Yamaha MG12XU 12-Input Stereo Mixer **

Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom Arm

Heil Sound PRSM-B Shockmount

Heil Sound Windscreen for PR40 Microphone

GLS Audio 6ft Y-Cable Splitter Cord – 1/8″ TRS Stereo to 1/4″ TS Mono

Mogami Gold Studio 15 Microphone Cable Quad Conductor

*If I were starting from square one again, knowing what I know now, I would have swapped out the Heil microphone for the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone.

**The Yamaha mixer is super complex and just way too much for me personally, I never really learned how to use it, so I sold it and now use the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools – it’s the little red box you’ve undoubtedly seen before and I love it, so simple, so easy.
