Hello, guys.

I would like to start my own podcast and have already picked out some equipment. However, I can't decide which microphone will be the most suitable choice. I will be recording in this small room (photo link: https://ibb.co/ftdmZxP) and not exactly a studio... I read somewhere that shelves full of books act as a good sound insulator. But they are only from two sides. Then there is a window niche and a door. Well, I don't know if a condenser or rather a dynamic microphone will be more suitable choice here.

I would like to stay with the RODE brand. My choice was Rode NT1-A or Rode NT1. Which (dynamic or condenser) would you recommend for this room? I plan to record an interview with one or two guests at a time. Everyone would sit at a table and have a microphone right in front of them.

Would it help if I put a portable acoustic panel in the window recess and by the door to make this room acts more like „studio“?

My picked equipment:
MIXER:
RODECaster Pro II
MIC: NT1 Kit Rode
BOOM ARM: PSA1+ Rode
HEADPHONES: Rode NTH-100

Thank you 😊
