    Steps to using a cell phone microphone for podcasting recording

     

    SYNCO P2L is a iPhone podcast microphone with dual-channel. It's packed with a wireless charging case. And it can record from a long distance.

    Connect the mic to the phone and set it up

    • The above-mentioned SYNCO U1L has a plug-and-play design, it is directly connected to the phone through the lighting plug, and then by adjusting the right angle since it is 90° rotatable, the radio will be aimed at the speaker.
    • If it is Moman CP2, you need to plug in the receiver and wait for the two TXs to automatically pairing. When the light shows green, you can start podcasting.
    • The USB microphone is also the type without additional settings, the difference is that you may need to use the bracket, tripod, or monopod to fix it or hold it in your hand.

    Have a real-time monitor by headphone

    The headphone output on the SYNCO G1 Pro, P-series, and other products, is one of the best features. Take G1 Pro wireless microphone system for camcorder as an example, it not only has a Type-C port for charging or output, a 3.5mm TRS output for the lav mic (Which is packed with the box) but also has a 3.5mm monitoring port for you to check the recording effects in real-time.

    The 3.5mm jack port on the phone microphone for podcast enables you to check the sound quality of your audio before and while recording and to listen to it again when you're done. If you're considering recording, we strongly advise having a set of headphones on hand at all times.

    Use the original app or download the pro podcast app to record

    It is a free option to specifically download a professional podcast app for records or not. Generally speaking, the ordinary recording function that comes with the phone can already meet your needs. But if you are looking for a more convenient, comprehensive, and professional recording app, which has voice change and post-editing functions, you may need to download a straightforward new audio recorder.

    Moman CP2 is a compact external lapel microphone for Android phone and iPhone. It features noise-canceling for voice capturing with clarity. It can be used in Youtube video filming, interviewing, podcasting, etc.

    Three tips for recording a podcast on your phone microphone

    When you have all the necessary equipment, it's time to consider recording. Here are some pointers for getting better audio.

    1. Get your mic and shooting device steady

    You need to keep your phone stable during the recording process and avoid any bumps, jolts, or vibrations. That’s because even a small collision can produce noise, which may be picked up by your mic and heard in your podcast. Of course, this can be prevented if it is a digital wireless lavalier microphone system. If it's the shotgun kind, we still recommend that you don't touch your phone, or use a handheld stabilizer to steady podcast mic for mobile.

    You can use SYNCO P2T wireless clip microphone to vlog your daily life with friends, or use it for a stable and clear video chat.

    2. Test your mic with words of linking and plosion

    Perform a few tests to make sure your audio is clear and undistorted before you begin recording. You might consider saying a passage from your podcast script to see if the recording is clear. Or you can say some linking and plosion words to adjust the volume level or the distance between your mouth and the mic. If conditions allow, you can also try to walk into a relatively noisy environment to test the noise cancellation performance of the external phone microphone for podcast.

    3. Make sure you speak from an appropriate distance

    Think carefully about where the mic should be placed on your lips while recording on a phone. Your audio may sound distorted if you're too near to it. If you're too far away, it will sound like you speak from a long distance and lose clarity. Make sure your podcast phone microphone is 20 to 30 centimeters away from your lips and aimed directly at it for a rich, professional sound.
