What to consider when choosing an online voice recorder

The most important thing to consider when looking for an online voice recorder is quality. With the right audio recorder, you don’t need to compromise resolution because you’re recording online. Find online software with local recording that can record your voice in high resolution without worrying about internet issues getting in the way. The better your recording quality, the less editing but for quick fixes look for software that already comes with some easy editing tools.

You’ll want tools for automatic noise suppression, echo cancellation, and easy audio clip creation. The ability to download separate participant tracks is also helpful in giving you more editing control. Don’t forget to check out recording files’ formats. While MP3 audio is better when it comes to storage space, WAV files are crisper and better for fine-tune editing. Other than that, automatic transcription will save you plenty of labor time and a voice recorder mobile app will give you the freedom to record on-the-go.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I use Riverside to record my podcast?

Wherever you want. Our web app works on either Chrome and Edge and we also have dedicated apps for iOS, android, and tablet – which open up new recording options – plus a macOS app coming very soon.

What audio and video quality does Riverside support?

Riverside records audio in 48KHz as standard. Audio quality may differ depending on your sound equipment and recording environment. As for video, you can record in up to 4K (UHD).

How come I get better quality audio and video for my podcast with Riverside?

We record everything locally, straight on the device you’re on, be it your mobile or laptop, then upload it to the cloud. That means the only thing affecting the quality of your recording is the equipment you use and the quality of your recording is maintained  even under unstable or subpar internet connections.

Most alternatives record you straight to the cloud, making the final quality dependent on the internet connection you were using. These alternatives usually compress files to reduce their size, too which further compromises their quality. We capture and upload your recording tracks at raw, highest quality footage.

Won’t local recording take up space on my computer or phone?

No no. We record you locally but immediately upload new data captured to the cloud as you’re recording. That means it’s only stored temporarily on your device. It also means minimal lag between the time you finish recording and having all your files up in the cloud.

Why is having separate tracks a game-changer for my podcast?

Having separate audio and video tracks for each participant basically means that you have raw footage to edit and use however you want. Recording everything as one track, like Zoom does, equals more compromises, e.g., parts of the audio where people speak over each other. As for video, it would either mean having a split screen all throughout or only having the shot of the person speaking each time.

How will I get my podcast recordings from my guests? Will they need to send them to me?

Your guest recordings are uploaded to your account, just like your local recording. When you're done, you'll find all recordings in your dashboard. No need to wait for anyone to send anything.

Does using the editor cost more?

No. The editor is included in all our plans.

What podcast-specific editing features does Riverside offer?

Lots. To name a few, there’s text-based editing and color-coded timeline by speaker that keep your focus on the conversation and the people having it. There’s also Magic Episode for minimal editing and faster publishing. And then there’s Magic Clips, which picks out the best moments in your episode and turns them into social clips. These are ideal for social media and can really help you grow your audience.

And why does any of this matter?

Because poor audio and video quality is what keeps podcasters like you up at night.

What audio and video quality does Riverside offer?

Riverside records audio in 48KHz as standard. Audio quality may differ depending on your sound equipment and recording environment. As for video, you can record in up to 4K (UHD).

Can Riverside handle sensitive video productions and ensure high-quality even if  internet is unreliable?

We record everything locally, straight on the device you’re on, be it your mobile or laptop, then upload it to the cloud. That means the only thing affecting the quality of your recording is the equipment you use and the quality of your recording is maintained  even under unstable or subpar internet connections.

These alternatives usually compress files to reduce their size, too which further compromises their quality. We capture and upload your recording tracks at raw, highest quality footage.

What’s the advantage in having separate tracks of the recording?


Having separate audio and video tracks for each participant basically means that you have all the raw footage, so you can edit and use it however you want. Recording everything as one track, like Zoom does, equals more compromises, e.g., parts of the audio where people speak over each other. As for video, it would either mean having a split screen all throughout or only having the shot of the person speaking each time.

How many guests can I have in the studio at once?

Your riverside studio can record up to 8 guests as a time. That means 16 different tracks if you account for audio and video separately. However, you can also share an audience link for people to join as unrecorded spectators during the live recording.

Will my guests need to open a Riverside account?

Not at all. To join you in your studio, all guests need to do is click on the link you send them. No sign up or installation required.

How do I access my guest recordings? Will they need to send them to me?

Your guest recordings are uploaded to your account, just like your local recording. When you're done, you'll find all recordings in your dashboard. No need to wait for anyone to send anything.

Does using the editor cost more?

No. The editor is included in all our plans.

Can Riverside’s editor let me brand my marketing videos the way we want them?

Sure. You can obviously upload and add your company logo to your videos. But, you can also add more branded or recognizable footage to any recording. Virtual backgrounds let you pick the look of it all. And, a personal favorite, you can customize your captions with a wide variety of fonts, colors, sizes, and design effects to make them on brand.

What if I want to use a different editor?

Go ahead! To save you time and irritating downloads and uploads, we have direct exporting to Premiere and Final Cut Pro. All you have to do is click a button.

How can Riverside help with repurposing my video content for different platforms?

First of all, because your have separate video and audio tracks of each participant in the recording, you and your editors can really have your way with how you want to use and reuse your footage. But, if you want a quick, no-brainer turnaround there’s also the Magic Clips feature. This will pick out the best moments in the recording and make them into short clips which you can share on social, as quick snippets on your website, and whatnot.

I would like to join along with my team. Would it be easy for us to collaborate?

Very easy. And not only because all your recordings, files, and tracks are in the cloud where everyone has access to them. With our business plans, team members can act as producers for one another, giving them absolute control over the recording without actually being recorded. There’s also a special editor role for team members who just need access to the final recordings. Finally, you can create different production environments for different projects and needs, making everything easy to find.

And why does any of this matter?

Because poor audio and video quality is what keeps people like you (and your customers) up at night

How many guests can I host at my webinar?

You can host and record up to 7 guest speakers in a Riverside webinar.

How many audience members can I invite to my webinar?

Up to 1000 audience members can join to watch a live webinar session. Meanwhile you can multistream your webinar to different social media channels, making your audience size practically limitless.

Audience members can also request a live call-in. If granted, they will be recorded for the duration of the call-in without counting towards your 8 total recorded streams.

Will my guests and viewers need to download an app or open an account?

No. However, our mobile app is great when on the go, and if you have an iPad, we really think you’ll love using the Riverside app on it. Finally, the Mac Studio app offers a great meeting place away from the hustle and bustle of the browser.

What video quality does Riverside livestream in?

Up to 720p depending on your internet connectivity.

What audio and video quality does Riverside record in?

It’s important to note that we record everything locally, straight on the device you’re on, then upload it to the cloud. That means the only thing affecting the quality of your recording is the equipment you use and the quality of your recording is maintained  even under unstable or subpar internet connections.

Most alternatives record you straight to the cloud, making the final quality dependent on the strength of both your and your guests’ internet connection. These alternatives usually compress files to reduce their size too, which further compromises their quality. We capture and upload your recording tracks at raw, highest quality footage.

You can read our guide to learn more on how to record a webinar in high-quality.

What’s the advantage of separate recording tracks?

Having separate audio and video tracks for each participant basically means that you have all the raw footage, so you can edit and use it however you want.

Recording everything on one track like Zoom does means you might hear your guests talking over one another. This leads to a whole lot of complications when editing. As for video, it would either mean having a split screen all throughout or only having the shot of the person speaking each time.

How do I access my guest recordings? Will they need to send them to me?

Your guest recordings are uploaded to your account, just like your local recording. When you're done, you'll find all recordings in your dashboard. No need to wait for anyone to send anything.

Can I brand my webinars the way I want?

Sure. We’ve got a variety of webinar branding features.

You can upload your company logo to your studio and choose a background to match your brand.

Later on in the editor, you can add more branded and recognizable footage, as well as add overlay text and images and style them.

All that and more – you can customize and animate your captions with a wide variety of fonts, colors, sizes, and design effects to make them on brand.

Can I repurpose my webinars for different platforms?

Absolutely! Because you have separate video and audio tracks of each participant recorded in high-quality, you really have your way with how you want to use and reuse your footage.

For a quick, no-brainer turnaround there’s Magic Clips. This feature will pick out the best moments in the recording for you and turn them into short clips which you can share on social, on your website, and whatnot.

Would Riverside be easy for my team to collaborate on?

Very. All your studios, recordings, files, and tracks are in the cloud where everyone has access to them.

With our business plans, team members can act as producers for one another, giving them absolute control over the recording without actually being recorded.

There’s also a special editor role for team members who just need access to the final recordings.

Finally, you can create different production environments for different projects and needs, making everything easy to find.

Your webinar cost depends on a variety of factors:
It’s hard to give an exact estimate. Technically you could even start a webinar for free. But, if you’re investing in equipment, software and going all in on marketing it can cost over $3000 dollars.
