Digital Camera World Verdict

Sound more like a professional audio broadcaster or podcaster thanks to the combination of the Vocaster Two Studio’s DM14v dynamic voice microphone and a sleek and functional audio mixing desk. Use XLR cable or Bluetooth inputs to add guests and co-hosts to your podcast and share your audio feed to a DSLR, speakers, and a computer via a range of sockets on the back of the Vocaster desk. This is the kit you need if you want to elevate your podcast (or voiceover) audio production values to a more professional level.

When it comes to capturing video for a YouTube channel or corporate production it’s a simple matter to record great-looking High Definition footage thanks to devices such as the iPhone 14 Pro (which is what we used to record this review’s supporting video). However, your production’s sound quality can often be comparatively subpar, especially if you use your computer’s built-in mic.  Focusrite’s Vocaster Studio series is designed to elevate your audio production values so that their quality matches that of your project’s HD video footage.
