Plan. Record. Share.

Welcome to the Hitt Maker Podcast Studio at the John C. Hitt Library! Thanks to a generous donation from the Hitt Family to UCF Libraries, a new space was created for UCF Faculty, Staff, and Students to be able record podcasts. The studio was designed to provide a professional experience with easy-to-use equipment.

Quick Info on the Hitt Maker Studio:

  • The Hitt Maker podcast studio allows users to easily capture both audio and video recordings of a podcast
  • Rodecaster Pro II Audio Production mixer provides easy adjustments of microphone levels, effects, monitor headphone levels, and smart pads for fun sound effects!
  • ATEM Mini Pro ISO Video Mixer allows easy live switching of cameras + an HDMI source (example: laptop, iPad, or our iMac secondary monitor).
    • Recordings are saved onto an external SSD drive for quick transfer
  • Both Audio and Video Mixers record Full Mix files plus individual channel files for easy post-edit capabilities
  • 1 to 4 people can be included in recordings
  • The space can also be utilized to record voice-overs for video projects
  • (2) comfy soft seating chairs are in the rear of the room to provide additional seating for those observing the recording
  • Multi-track audio recording into the iMac computer is an option for users with a variety of software options such as GarageBand, Audacity, Logic Pro, and Adobe Audition.
  • The equipment is designed to be controlled by a producer or individual not in the podcast, so bring a friend to help with the recording.
  • New iMac computers, with the same software as the studio, will be installed Spring 2024 semester near the LibTech desk as stations to perform post-editing.
