How to record a podcast

Equipment Available from the Library

You can borrow the following recording equipment from the Library:

Accessories include:

  • Shure SM58 microphones & 4x 1m-long XLR cables (compatible with the Xenyx Q1204 mixer and the Zoom H5)
  • 4 K&M 25995 table microphone stands
  • 1 Behringer HA400 4-channel headphone amplifier + cables + 3.5mm jack adapters
  • 12 foam pieces to reduce reverberation in Bubbles (no reservation, upon request at the loan desk)

To reserve any of the equipment above, use this form at least 2 days in advance.

  • The items will be prepared for you at the loan desk.
  • Loans can last for 1-7 days and will not be renewed automatically.
  • If you need special service or conditions (urgent request, long loan, workshop, etc.), please contact or come to the information desk during opening hours (Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm).
  • If you do not return the items on time, you may be fined and/or barred from further loans. Contact us early in case of unexpected issues.
  • If an item is damaged or after a significant delay, you will be charged for its replacement.

Sadly, the Library does not have a studio for recording. You may use the Bubbles (using foam pieces mentioned above to reduce reverberation) or take the equipment to another location of your choice. The quieter, the better.
