We can provide a phone interface, to use our microphones through the phone lines. This can sound much better that many telephone handsets, especially cellular connections. We can also record this side of the conversation and post/upload a digital sound file of our end of the conversation for editing, if the interview is not going out live on the air. This option is used quite frequently, and helps our OSU content experts sound great over the air.

Yes! We've got the best place on campus to record voice content. Please contact our Front Desk at 541-737-2121 to schedule time. We can set you up with your own recorder, or provide a recording technician to make sure your recording is the best it can be.

We employ a range of professional microphones, including models from Neumann, Sennheiser, and Audio-Technica, among others, allowing us better options to marry the varying sonic characteristics of different types of voices to the needs of different broadcasters.
