This has happened to me a lot. I’ve always found a lot of material that covers the topic of Podcasts in general but nothing that dwells on the technical part of Podcasting (and the one that scares you the most): Audio.Having the mastery of Microphones, USB Microphones, Sound Cards, Software and having the right basics to do Editing, Mix and Sound Design is a fundamental requirement to create a quality Podcast (at least at a technical level).The care of the Audio, Sound usually comes after the part of Ideation, Research, how to develop the Storytelling, how to develop the Content to be heard and finalize all the work done before to bring it to the stage of upload and publication of the podcast.Audio is a powerful language that manages to be very vertical and survives even without the presence of video. Not having a visual component the Sound is perceived and subject to one’s imagination. This means that each listener is free to visualize what they feel through their own experiences or fantasies becoming something personal; for this reason, the Sound Design helps the Podcast to be a much more incisive and performing media.If you’re setting up a Content Strategy or Podcast Marketing plan for your business. you can’t underestimate the quality of Sound. It’s kind of like a Youtuber who doesn’t use a good camera, proper lighting or an unkempt background and is just content with the video being recorded.Specifically, in this manual we will address:The basics of audio theoryHow to create a home studioMicrophones: how they work, which one to choose and in which situationUSB MicrophonesThe sound cardThe computer and the sequenceEditingMixMasterLoudnessand more!
