VSP #56 | Is Lack of Gear Holding You Back?

Mar 22, 2021

In this week's episode, we kick this off VERY DIFFERENTLY than what you're used to if you're a regular listener here. Instead of bringing my microphone that I know would be miles better, I chose to use the microphone on my phone for today's show.

We all have standards for what is acceptable and what's not when it comes to our video content but what if it comes down to just doing a down and dirty setup vs your very best setup? Would you wait until you're in "your best" or just do it?

Is a lack of gear holding you back from creating the content you envision or is it just a preference holding you back?

The Best Memory Card for the Rodecaster Pro

If you've just purchased the Rodecaster Pro or currently adding to cart all the things you need to buy alongside your Rodecaster Pro, be sure the add the right memory card.

The last thing you want to do is get to a place where you're frustrated because you're ready to record your next podcast or interview and your memory card is showing little to no space available.

Here's a quick video if you prefer a visual example, or you can skip down to the recommended memory card to use.




I recommend only using Sandisk or Samsung MicroSD cards with the Rodecaster Pro

The Rode has listed only specific brands to use with the Rodecaster Pro and they agree to only use Sandisk or Samsung MicroSD memory cards.

Some cards don't have what's needed to properly write to the card and sometimes can result in an error message.

How to Connect the Rodecaster Pro & Shure SM7B into Clubhouse

Clubhouse, the audio-only, social media platform has created some serious waves in the content creation space, and my first thought is always how can I capture content and repurpose that content that I create for my business.

That introduces a concern regarding the Clubhouse rules for when recording is acceptable and when it's not.

BEWARE: Recording others or other speakers and their conversation without their permission is against Clubhouse app rules and their Community Guidelines and can result in being removed from the platform. 

Please see the Community Guidelines for the specific details HERE.



Everything You'll Need to Connect the Rodecaster Pro to Your Microphone to Record Clubhouse

Note: I personally use the Shure SM7B Microphone but any XLR microphone will work but for the purposes of this article, I'll be demonstrating use with the Shure SM7B.
