Do I need a credit card to try Riverside.fm?
No the free trial includes all the features. For 30 minutes you record with audio and video, live stream it to your media channels and let your listeners call in.
What does locally recorded mean?
Locally recorded means that the recording takes place on the computer instead of over the internet. The advantage of this is that the recordings are in studio quality and after downloading the recording you won't hear the disruptions caused by bad internet connections. By recording locally you get individual audio and individual video tracks.
How is the quality of the recording?
The audio recordings are wav 48 kHz 16 bit format. We record locally and you can use your preferred mic. The video recordings are up to 4K per separate track. You can record 30 minutes for free and see how it sounds and looks for yourself :).
