Gonna start a podcast….My How To! – Pt. 1

Ok so yesterdays post was the equipment I was going to need and a bit about what it is I am going to do. So I am just gonna continue that.

I have quite a few domain names. Me and Dark were going to start a podcast a while back and call it random gamers. I bought that domain and a few days later Dark lost access to a decent computer. After thinking about it a bit I realized that it would not have been the best option anyway. New domain means no traffic. Themodshop has a good bit of traffic so why not do it on here? 😀

So thats where I stand as of now. I am looking for people interested in co-hosting the podcast as well as possible interviews with other bloggers out there. If you are interested shoot me an email tracker [at] themodshop [dot] net
Ok lets get back to what I was saying. I don’t have the microphone I ordered but other than that I have most of everything I need. Right now I am going to describe some of the software and the desktop that I am going to use for it.

  • The Computer

Ok the computer I am going to use for this is my main pc. Now when I built this pc I only put 2gb of ram in it. So I ordered another 2gb because it was cheap [$25~] now if you are just doing audio you can get by with a lot less. But I plan on doing some videos so the extra power will come in handy.


  • AMD Phenom 9850 4×2.5Ghz
  • 4gb ram
  • 1x 300gb IDE drive [storage]
  • 1x320gb SATA drive [Main]
  • Nvidia 8600GT [1gb gddr3]
  • Windows Vista Ultimate x86

So as you can see…I have a decent computer. Not the best but decent.


Now this is going to be 2 sections because there are free applications and paid applications


  • Audacity for audio
  • Windows Movie Maker for video

Now Windows movie maker does suck major ass. However it is easyish to use and comes with any windows os out there.

Audacity is a decent program that can record cut split add remove all that good stuff with audio. Its probbly what I will use for audio editing.


  • Audio: ? ? ?
  • Video: Adobe Primer

Ok so I have no idea of any decent paid audio editing programs because well I use audacity and love it 😛

As far as the video. I am going to try and use Adobe Primer because I have it and it was suggest as one of the best out there.

That wraps up this part of the how to and I will be back with another part where I will give info on the inputs.
