Vocaster - The Essential Podcasting Interface

Focusrite has recently announced their latest range of products, the Vocaster, which is billed as the essential recording tool for podcasters. 

With the Vocaster it's easier than ever for podcasters to get started, have polished audio, and get their show to that professional standard.

The technical hassles that we've all experienced with routing audio in & out have been removed, so you can focus on what matters; telling your story, sharing your passion, and building your audience.  It is not just content that makes podcasts successful - the audio quality is equally important, too. The Vocaster really is an indispensable tool for any podcaster looking for that broadcast-quality audio. 

Using the Vocasters podcasters can deliver audio that is clear, consistent, and high-quality to their audience. Keep the listeners focused on the message by automatically setting appropriate audio levels without introducing unwanted noise.

With Auto Gain, Enhance, Easy Start, and everything you need to edit, it's never been easier to create the perfect podcast audio. The Vocaster is small, light, and powered by a computer, so podcasters can start recording straight away wherever they are. 

Vocaster One & Vocaster Two 
Vocaster - The Essential Podcasting Interface

Designed for solo podcasters, Vocaster One provides high-quality sound with confidence & ease.  Create professional recordings by setting your levels, enhancing your sound with a single click, and gaining access to award-winning support.  

With Vocaster Two, you can produce more dynamic shows involving two hosts or guests, as well as audio segments. There are two microphone inputs and two headphones outputs on this interface.  It is also possible to receive guests over the phone via Bluetooth or using a single cable (TRRS to TRRS cable, not included).   

Vocaster Studio Bundles 

As well as the interfaces themselves Focusrite have also released some bundles that include a microphone & cable. These are perfect for those starting from scratch, no need to worry about what microphone might work best with the interface, dive straight in with these bundles. 

Vocaster One Studio

The Vocaster One Studio is the entry-level bundle that includes: 

Vocaster - The Essential Podcasting Interface

  • Vocaster One 
  • Headphones: HP60v Headphones
  • Microphone: DM1 
  • 3m XLR Cable 
  • USB A-C Cable 

This bundle includes a dynamic microphone rather than a condenser which although unusual for studio recordings is preferable for podcasting due to the directional pick-up patterns and their lower sensitivity. This means that you won't pick up as much background noise from others in the room or from things like typing whilst you're trying to record your guest.  

Vocaster Two Studio 

The Vocaster Two Studio bundle is the next tier up, it includes: 

Vocaster - The Essential Podcasting Interface

  • Vocaster Two
  • Headphones: HP60v Headphones
  • Microphone: DM14v
  • 3m XLR Cable 
  • USB A-C Cable 

This one comes with a more professional quality dynamic microphone, the DM14v. This microphone gives you a truer representation of your voice and has a really low noise floor. It also has an integrated shock mount and windshield, as well as a tilt mount for making those adjustments in position.
