What’s the best interface for recording spoken word?

Every day around the world, millions of people listen to books, podcasts, and radio shows. If you produce Spoken Word, you’ll want to really connect with those listeners — and the best way to do that is to make sure that your words are heard clearly. Choosing an audio interface that enables you to reproduce your voice with the highest quality possible is obviously the key to success, but there’s more to consider...

Minimise distractions

In order to ensure your best Spoken Word performance, you’ll want to remove any distractions and focus on what you are saying and how you are saying it. You’ll also want to make sure that your listeners are not distracted by extraneous noise or latency delays that can really take away from what you’re saying.

Setting up is easy

First, you’ll want to make sure that you don’t have to worry about connecting your equipment — microphone(s), software and maybe hardware, too. The Focusrite range of interfaces is designed to make this job as simple as possible. Every Focusrite audio interface comes with an 'Easy Start' tool, so working out what goes where isn’t going to be a problem, you’ll be up and running in a flash.
