TPS Ep. 039 – Audio Editors, Virtual Cart Machines, and Using Analytics to Track Success

Adobe Audition is now out for the Mac. Find out what I like about it, what I think you could use as an alternative and the effects I use when using Audition to process my audio.

Also discussed on this episode are virtual cart machines (soundbyte, pod producer, etc).

The more content you produce and publish in your niche, the more you establish yourself as an expert in your field. The best way to achieve this status is by making sure anyone and everyone interested in your content can consume it. By giving it away for free you are not only inviting everyone to view it, you are drawing people to your expertise and opening up the possibility for anyone to hire you or pay for other products you sell surrounding your content.
