The Podcaster Pro is a USB Audio device that has been over a decade in the making by Adam Curry. All you need to make podcasts is the Podcast Pro, your laptop, and an XLR mic – and your podcast will sound like it was recorded in a professional recording studio!

Every component, from custom chip programming, to board design, to case design, to custom knobs, has been rigorously engineered to Adam Curry’s specifications, giving you his years of experience in radio and television to create the single most ergonomic all-in-one processing device for podcasters and voice over talent.

One thought on “Adam Curry’s Podcaster Pro is on Indiegogo”
love the idea, but its way overpriced – $650+ and that’s without a mic. Add another ~$200+ for mic and stand.
As opposed to:
$100 for a scarlett 2i2
$100-200 for a good XLR shotgun mic, even throw in $50 for a stand
$0 voicemeeter software, create virtual audio bus, pull/push from skype
and you’re there for less than half the price. Add noisegates etc if you really must.
