M-Audio is the most punk rock music company out there. They're so gung-ho and hip, they know what's going to be big, and that's podcasting. So M-Audio has created Podcast Factory, a solution for the amateur podcaster who wants to start podcasting but doesn't know much of what to do or what to buy. Podcast Factory contains a condenser microphone, software for recording, and a 24-bit USB audio interface. If you'll be doing a lot of interviews, upgrade to Podcast Factory Deluxe, a two-microphone solution with more software and a virtual audio interface for routing Skype and VoIP calls into the bundled software. Both will be available around February at prices of $149.99 and $249.99, respectively.
