What to consider when choosing a podcast soundboard

The right podcast soundboard software can make a huge difference to your podcast show! Choose a soundboard that’s simple to use and gives you a variety of media effects to choose from. For an easy setup, look for an all-in-one podcast soundboard and mixer that automatically syncs separate tracks. For the most seamless experience, we suggest an online soundboard that easily integrates with recording software.
Make sure your software allows you to add your own media files.

This is great for personalizing your show as you’ll be able to add any effects you want and even record your own. Podcast soundboards can be used live while recording, and if you’re planning on streaming your podcast it’s worth looking into live streaming features. An extra that’s worth it, is behind-the-scenes producer controls. If you’ve got a producer, they can control your soundboard while you focus on your podcast.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a podcast soundboard?

A podcast soundboard is a media library you can add sound effects to your podcast recordings. For example, you can add intros, outros, background music, and more. This comes integrated with a podcast mixer in many cases, but these are not the same thing. A podcast mixer is a piece of equipment to merge and control multiple tracks. Read more about podcast mixers if that is what you’re searching for. 

Although, if you want to avoid the need for this equipment, you’re better off using a podcast soundboard online or other soundboard software. Riverside is an easy-to-use soundboard for any PC. This all-in-one platform lets you edit live as your record, allowing you to add podcast sound effects from a soundboard even as you live stream.

How do you use a soundboard on a podcast?

In simple terms, your first step would be to add all the media you need to access for your podcast sound effects in your soundboard. If you’re creating your own soundboard, you will have to download or save the various media files you need on your computer. If you’re using an online soundboard, you simply have to upload all your media, and they should be ready to use. On Riverside’s Media Board, you can either use pre-recorded effects or upload various audio and video files.

Where can I get sound effects for my podcast?

A lot of soundboards come with podcast sound effects already preloaded. For example, Riverside’s Media Board has a selection of pre-loaded podcast sounds that anyone can use. You can also find free or paid sound and podcast music on various websites dedicated to this. Read over our free music for podcasts guide for some ideas. Some people even record their own sounds, and this could be an option if you’re looking for something specific you can’t find.

What is the best soundboard app or soundboard software?

It depends on what you need. For example, you might need a soundboard for streaming or an online soundboard that helps free your PC storage.

There are many soundboards that could be ideal for you, some even free. It’s generally best to go for soundboard software that is integrated into your recording platform. This makes it much easier for you to connect everything. Riverside is one of the best soundboards for any PC. As Riverside is browser-based, both Mac and Windows users can access this software.
