Home Recording Tips For Starters (The Quick-And-Dirty Way):
Look for a quiet room, preferably echo-free and outside noise-free.
Place your mic or phone on a tripod, wear a headphone, and start recording.
Try to avoid any noises like table bumps and maintain the distance of your mic to your mouth at least 2 to 4 inches away.
If you commit a mistake during the recording, just let the recording run and continue with the correct script.
After the recording, list down all the edits with timestamps. We do the editing basically by going through the whole raw audio file by removing unnecessary parts or mistakes. But providing us with your edit notes will be of great help.
Now you are ready to upload your podcast files to us for editing.
File Upload Checklist:
1. Host audio track
2. Guest audio track
3. Intro/outro, music, ads
4. Edits in text file (optional)
5. ID3 tag info / cover art
The Editing Process:
The editing process begins by going through the whole raw audio file to edit and remove mistakes and unwanted parts.
The reduction of the outside noise, mouth noises, hums, and echoes are processed with the right amount, maintaining the natural quality of the voice.
For starters, provide us your unedited royalty-free music, and we will edit it into a 20-seconder or less intro and outro stingers mixed with your voice.
Guest audio track with ''Zencastr Drift'' (out of sync audio) issues, will be reviewed first. We might require you to send us a copy of the transcription for our guide.
You will receive the final podcast file in MP3 format with the following specifications:
128kbps, 16bit, 44.1kHz stereo. -16 (+/-1) LUFS, True peak: -1.0
Let us know if you have any preferred audio format specifications. There will be no extra charge for any audio-format request.
