Kap's Super Studio Checklist (Gear/Software)
Updated: Feb 24
Hey friend! I'm stoked you downloaded my Super Studio Checklist for all the gear/software I use and recommend for podcasters and content creators. Whether you're a budding content creator or have been at it for a while, this guide will give you all the tools that I’ve personally tested to remove all the friction from getting your message on your audience’s screen. Here are 5 reasons why setting up your own studio will change the game for you:
Maximum Flexibility: You can create content from the comfort of your own home/office without worrying about scheduling or studio availability.
Pro-Level Quality: With your own gear, you're in control of lighting, sound, and video. Whether you’re running a podcast or just hosting a Zoom call, you and your guests are amazed at the improvement in your content's quality.
Super Productive: No more wasted time traveling to and from a recording studio. With your own setup, you can be in and out in no time!
Wallet-Friendly: In the long run, investing in your own gear can save you a ton compared to constantly renting a studio.
Total Creative Control: You're the boss now! Experiment with different setups and techniques until you find what works best.
Now, I've created this checklist with two creators in mind. The New Creator and the Advanced Creator. The New Creator package will just have the video, lighting, audio, and editing essentials to get started. The Advanced Creator package will have ALL the elements I use personally to create a superior video/audio production.
