PaleGroove Studios today announced the opening of a “bricks and mortar” podcast production studio, the first of its kind in the United States.
The experience is said to be quick and easy. PaleGroove Studios provides on-site technology, equipment, space, and know-how to develop a regular podcast show. The studio’s staff also provide assistance on show content, format, and musical accompaniment. A studio engineer will record, edit, and master the show. Finally, the engineer will encode the show to mp3 format and uploaded it to server space, which is also provided by PaleGroove Studios.
With portable production equipment also available, PaleGroove Studios also offers “house calls” and turn any office or room into a temporary podcast studio.
“PaleGroove Studios’ business plan is to help technology novices utilize this exciting new technology, and build a roster of podcast shows that help populate the podcast world,” said Kristopher Smith, president and founder of PaleGroove Studios. “The more podcast shows available to consumers, the better. We are already working with lawyers, rock bands, industry associations, and others to develop custom podcast shows for their own target audiences.”
Initial podcast consultations are free with podcast production package prices starting at $75 per show. Each show requires approximately five business days of start-to-finish production.
PaleGroove Studios is located in Naperville, a suburb 60km west of Chicago, and is open by appointment only. With portable production equipment on hand, PaleGroove Studios currently services a three-hour radius.
We say: a very, very cool idea.
