How to set up a home studio for recording online courses

I wanted to share with you all the home recording studio currently used to produce our courses and videos. It's taken a long time to get to a point where the studio is comfortable and working as intended but I'm quite happy with the results.

It has been a goal to make the studio as "live to tape" as possible with minimal or no post processing the finish the recording. Initially I had been trying to pull this off with BionxTV however it simply demanded too much resources from my laptop.

The current solution consists of the following:



  • Heil PR-40 Dynamic Microphone
  • Behringer Xenyx Mixer
  • Apple retina MacBook Pro 13"
  • 2 Softboxes
  • 2 Umbrella Soft Lights
  • 1 Cheap Green Screen
