Hello, and welcome to today’s podcasting tip. Today I am going to talk through the question; how do I record and edit my podcast?
I get a lot of questions on the best ways to record and edit your podcast, and what software to use, and which is best. And realistically, it is not as important to start off with as you think. Yes, if you are doing a big audio drama production where there would be lots of voices, sound effects, music, changes in stereo between left and write, noises added — then you might need something more elaborate than a podcast that just wants one voice, or an interview.
So my top tip for getting started is use what you have or what you can get that won’t cost an absolute bomb, unless obviously you are loaded of course.
A Mac comes with Garage band, preinstalled. And whilst it is a music making platform it’s very competent in making podcasts, and you can just do a few tweaks and you are there and it’s ready to go.
If you don’t want to use Garage band or you don’t have a Mac, Audacity is free for both Mac and PC, it can handle most basic podcasts and even some of the bigger podcasts, they still use Audacity even several years along — so go and check that out. It’s completely free to download.
I also love Hindenburg, especially for storytelling or journalistic style pieces, it’s very affordable, it’s got a monthly price tag but it is worth it.
Then my personal favourite, the one I use every single day is Adobe audition, I use it for everything. So if you are going to be using it that frequently then the monthly price is justifiable, I think it’s around twenty to twenty-five pounds or dollars a month, however that works out when you convert it.
At the end of the day it has got to work for you, and your budget, and your podcast. So have a play with what’s available to you, see what works. And see what works for you and your podcast.
That’s it for our quick Podcasting tip, thanks for catching up. Don’t forget you can get this as a podcast, alexa skill or by video by following me Chris Huskins on Facebook or Instagram TV.
