What Goes In To Editing A Podcast?
Editing a podcast episode can take two to three times the length of the actual episode. One an episode is recorded, Daniel turns into an audio engineer. His job is to ensure the conversations sound fluent without dead spaces, removing edits (the um’s and pauses), mixing and mastering sound levels and removing background noise. That’s not all though…Daniel then packages the episode, exports it to format it, adds ID3 tags and finally uploads it. Editing is an art form and while you can do it yourself, having an audio engineer like Daniel on your team creates a pretty perfect product.
Podcast Recording Tips
Daniel is sharing some tips with you about the two biggest things you should pay attention to when recording a podcast. The first is your microphone. The quality of the mic will help with the quality of the sound, frequency response and good pickups. Daniel recommends you keep the mic close to your, about 2 inches, and to adjust the volume or gain to prevent distortion. In addition to the mic, the room you are recording in will play a big part in the way the sound quality will turn out. Regardless of the mic you use, your quality will be downgraded without sound reflections. One of our biggest kept secrets and greatest recording hack is to just record in your closet!
Daniel’s Favorite Podcasting Equipment And Platforms
Daniel is sharing his favorite podcasting equipment and it starts with the Blue Yeti microphone which we both use. It’s a simple plug and play utilizing a USB connection and bonus points…it looks pretty in a variety of colors! For recording, Daniel recommends GarageBand if you have a Mac or Audacity if you have a PC. If you plan on interviewing guests, we love Zencastr which is what we used for this episode, but if you want to incorporate video, then Zoom is a good option.
