Podcast setup

Mark, what do you recommend for a podcast setup?  Basically which brand of mixing board and mike?  I want to be able to do the multitrack recoding of skype calls.

Re: Podcast setup

I use and recommend the Alesis Multimix 8 USB 2.0 mixer.  It's relatively inexpensive, and does full multi-track recording.  One thing to be aware of, though, is that the Windows Vista/7 drivers as well as the Linux drivers (last I looked, anyway) DON'T support multitrack recording.  So, you have to have an XP machine (or perhaps VM) to do your recording on.  I spent  a couple of weeks going back and forth with an engineer at Alesis about this, and they basically don't seem to see it as a problem.  For mics, I use the the Audio-Technica M4000S.  They can be bought for as little as $20 each and sound great.
