Top 2 Things You Need to Know for Better Sound for Your Podcast

1. ENVIRONMENT! Record where it sounds the best…not necessarily where it’s the most comfortable.
2. HIGH-QUALITY SOUND! Make sure you’re recording in 24-bits rather than 16-bits.

What Recording Software Do You Recommend?

It honestly doesn’t matter the platform that you record on. It’s more of a preference. But Audacity or Adobe Audition is a great place to start.

Plugins: EQ & a Compressor…That is the core of audio engineering

Sound Proofing vs. Sound Treating

Sound Proofing is keeping sounds going in and out of the room

Sound Treating is keeping the sounds acoustically pleasing

Comparing your audio to a great sound you enjoy.
