For In The Dark’s courses you will need your own audio recorder, ideally a handheld Zoom Recorder (like this – please note this is different from the online meeting platform Zoom that the course will be held on!) and headphones (ideally these). This kit can usually also be bought second hand. If this is not affordable for you we can teach you using mobile phone and earbuds (which can have surprisingly good quality when used carefully) or using online digital recording platforms for distance interviews.
You will also need a computer with Reaper downloaded (Reaper has an unlimited evaluation period, though you are encouraged to buy a license after 60 days which costs $60). You can edit using a different DAW however we will not necessarily be able to give you technical support if you do.
If you have any questions about these requirements feel free to email nina [at] inthedarkradio [dot] org
