When it comes to the quality of your podcast audio, obviously you want it sounding as good as you can. Now, ideally, this would come from good mic technique and a good recording space. These would be the ideal combinations, and I talk about that in episode 13. But if you don't have the ideal space, there are some options that can help.Danny:
If your editing tool supports VST plugins, for example, you can use something like Isotope RX, which offers mouth de-click, repair assistant de-hum, de-noise, and a host of other audio repair tools. For a free option, Auphonic.com offers leveller, noise reduction, auto EQ, and loudness settings. New to the space is Adobe Podcast that lets you upload an audio file and repairs it for you. Now, this really only works with bad audio files. If the original was good, it will actually make it sound worse. But if the audio file that you have has lots of echo, wind, noise, et cetera, it does a really good job of making it sound like the audio was recorded in a recording studio. It's a bit like Descript Studio Sound, but a free option.Danny:
These are just some of the tools available if you need to make your audio sound better, and I'll leave links to each in the show notes. Until next time, happy podcasting.Danny:
