What to consider when choosing podcast recording software

When it comes to podcast recording the most important thing is professional video and audio quality! With the right podcast software, you can easily sound and look professional. The first feature to look out for is high-quality audio and video resolution. You’ll want software that records at least 44.1 kHz audio and if you’re a video podcaster look for 720p or 1080p HD resolution as a minimum. If you’re recording your podcast online lookout for local recording so you get high-resolution without worrying about internet connection interruptions.

Record your podcast with separate tracks to maximize editing control. Good software should offer this option and the option to merge tracks together. If you have editing tools already part of your podcast recording software you won’t need to worry about spending hours editing. Look for automated tools that include noise reduction, echo-cancellation, and customization. A clip creator could also be useful to create podcast teasers. Other features to consider include live streaming, mobile apps, and the number of guests you can invite.
