Start podcasting the right way

Want to start a podcast? The AKG Podcast Essentials package gets you off on the right foot. The AKG Lyra USB mic has a selectable four-capsule array so you can record in a variety of settings —and capture high-res audio up to 24-bit/192kHz.

The included AKG K371 high-performance headphones feature padded closed-back earcups that help block out ambient sound. The package even includes Ableton audio production software and free access to a Berklee Online recording course to get you started.

AKG Lyra USB mic

The Lyra mic features a cool, retro look that harkens back to the golden age of radio broadcasting. But it's not just a gimmicky look. The detachable base has a slot to thread mic and headphone cables through, keeping your work area uncluttered.

The mic holds four capsules that can work together in various ways. For single-voice recording, the two front-facing capsules are used. For two-person recording, the front pair records one voice, the rear pair the second. You can also record in either a tight or wide stereo field.

The mic has overload protection built in to prevent clipping. You can plug your headphones directly into the mic to monitor recording. There's a built-in headphone volume control.

AKG K371 headphones

The included K317 headphones are designed for studio use. Their padded, foldable headband ensure you can wear the 'phones comfortably for hours on end. The padded, closed-back earcups help seal out external sound so you can focus on the recording. The high-performance 50mm titanium-coated drivers help you hear the details in your recordings clearly.

Tools to get you started

Included is a free copy of Ableton's Live 10 Lite audio production software for Mac® and PC. The software lets you record and edit, add sound effects, and make tone adjustments to your voice. You can also create your own background music with pre-recorded loops.

The bundle also gives you free access to a four-part recording course from Berklee Online. The course takes you through an intro to sound production. You'll learn basic recording techniques, how to work with digital audio, how to improve your mixes in post-production, and more..

    Product Research

    Features

    Overview: The AKG Podcaster Essentials bundle includes an AKG Lyra USB microphone, a pair of AKG K371 closed-back headphones, Ableton Live 10 Lite audio production software, a free introductory recording course at Berklee Online, and all the necessary cables and adapters to produce professional quality podcasts, videos, and music.

    Lyra USB Microphone: The included AKG Lyra microphone is a USB connected, condenser microphone that incorporates AKG's legendary acoustic engineering for a versatile microphone that plugs directly into your computer, tablet, or smartphone. The Lyra mic can record pristine audio in 192kHz/24-bit Ultra-HD resolution, and offers 4 capture patterns, selectable from a built-in dial on the microphone. Patterns include:

    • Front: For speech and vocals.
    • Front&Back: Ideal for interviews with two people face to face.
    • Tight Stereo: Provides stereo pickup from the front. Ideal for instruments or groups.
    • Wide Stereo: This provides stereo pickup from both the front and back and is ideal for recording with ambience.

    The rear-panel of the Lyra microphone includes 2 controls for mic Gain adjustment and Pattern selection. The front of the mic includes a Mute button and a Headphone Volume control. Four LED indicators display what microphone Pattern is selected. The underside of the mic features a USB-C port, for connecting to your computer, and a 3.5mm stereo headphone socket. The Lyra microphone includes an integrated table-top stand that allows the mic to tilt in either direction, and includes tensioning knobs on each side of the stand. The base of the mic stand can be rotated and locked into place, either forward or backwards.

    K371 Headphones: The AKG K371 professional studio headphones combine performance, accuracy, and comfort in a compact, folding design that's ideal for studio and location productions. The K371 headphones are precision-engineered to match AKG's Reference Response acoustics, providing natural, balanced audio with clear detail. They feature high-sensitivity, 50mm drivers that can deliver deep bass and crisp highs with a wide frequency response that ranges from 5Hz-40kHz.

    • Closed-Back Design: The K371's over-ear, closed-back design provides superior isolation in noisy environments and prevents sound bleed into your microphone. They feature plush, slow-retention foam pads with an adjustable headband. Both earcups can swivel up to 90˚ for single-ear monitoring, and their light weight reduces ear fatigue.
    • Connector: The K371s feature a male 3-pin mini-XLR socket for attaching one of the provided headphone cables. Three cables are provided: 7' coiled cable, 118" straight cable, and a 47" straight cable, all with a female 3-pin mini-XLR plug on one end and a male 3.5mm (1/8") plug on the other end. A 3.5mm (1/8") to 6.5mm (1/4") adapter is also provided.

    Ableton Live 10 Lite: The AKG Podcaster Essentials bundle includes a free copy of Ableton's Live 10 Lite audio production software, for both Mac&PC. This streamlined recording software (DAW) gives you everything you need to quickly and easily produce pro-quality podcasts, with robust recording and editing features, the ability to add sound effects, shape the sound of your voice, and create your own background music with pre-recorded loops.

    Berklee Online Recording Course: The AKG bundle includes a free 4-part online recording course from Berklee Online. You'll learn about recording gear and techniques, working with digital audio, critical listening, polishing your mixes, and more.
