Behind the scenes of Apple’s WWDC Podcast studio setup [Gallery]


At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this week, the company set up a podcast studio for the second year that press and developers can use for onsite recording. This year, the studio was decked out in a 3D version of Apple’s WWDC graphics made from what looked like styrofoam-like material.

I had a studio tour today with our resident podcaster and 9to5Mac Happy Hour and Daily host, Zac Hall, and sat down to record today’s episode of our Daily podcast.

Head below for a look at the WWDC Podcast Studio…

The studio itself had four Shure SM7B Microphones setup with Beats Pro headphones So podcasters can just sit back and record without having to use their own equipment.

For those not at WWDC, Apple is also set up to have offsite FaceTime guests and hosts join those in the podcast studio. The purple lighting you see was provided by two Philips Hue Go lights in addition to Apple Podcasts custom signage.

Apple’s on-site tech recorded the show via an iMac and provided us with a USB drive of our recording on the way out.

The podcast studio is available in hour-long slots that developers and press can book at WWDC for recording.

You can now listen to the episode of our Daily podcast that we recorded at the studio.
