What to consider when choosing a podcast maker

Making a podcast is simple when you choose the right software. Your priority in a podcast-making app should be high-quality video and audio recording resolution. Choose software that at least records HD video, but even better if you go for software with local recording. By recording everything directly on your device, you’ll get top-quality resolution without having to stress over internet issues interfering. If you’re recording remotely, you should also check if your software has a mobile podcast creator app for easy podcast production on the go. 

Once you’ve got your recording features covered, focus on easy editing tools. Look for tools that help you polish your podcast audio, customize your layout and even add some branding. A clip maker for quick content repurposing is also a great tool to have for pushing and promoting your podcast. To save time go for automatic editing features, especially if you’re a podcast beginner. Make sure you can download separate tracks for more editing control. Extras that are useful include transcription and engaging live streaming features.
