One of the more popular questions I see is how to make my podcast sound better. And usually that's because when you record and you listen back afterwards, you can hear an echo, noise and other sounds that can be distracting. Now, the good news is there are really easy ways to make your podcast sound better.Danny:
Normally, echo is caused by hard surfaces, so wooden floors, bare walls, windows, doors, anything like that, where your voice will bounce back off the surface. To counter that, you want to make your recording space softer, and that means putting cushions down, rugs, curtains, anything that softens the surfaces and stops the sound bouncing off the hard surface.Danny:
If you have a little bit of a budget, you can also add to this by getting acoustic panels, which goes up on your walls and stops the hard bounce and absorbs the noise in your room. If all else fails, one of the cheapest options if you're not on camera is just going to a closet or a wardrobe where your clothes are hanging, and that sounds awesome. It may not look great, but if you're not on camera, it sounds great, and that's the most important thing.Danny:
And if all else fails, you've also got your editing software that has a host of plugins like noise removal, echo removal, reverb removal, et cetera. So take your time, look around your recording environment and see where you can improve it. Until the next time, happy podcasting.Danny:
