There’s lots of training online for audio post production. However, most of the information is focused on mastering audio for music. As podcaster’s our main post production concerns involve techniques related to mastering for voice only. Joe Gilder is an audio engineer who masters music for a living however he’s also a podcaster. So I brought Joe inside The Podcasters’ Studio to talk about post processing as it applies to podcasting.
On this episode (part 1 of 2) Joe and I focus mostly on the things you need to do before you even open your audio editor of choice. Some of things we talk about are:
- The subjective versus objective techniques for working with audio
- Getting it right at the source – start with the best audio possible
- How a cheap mixer might affect your sound
- Obtaining a baseline sound you’d like to achieve by listening to your peers
- Software (audio editors) and their importance
In part 2, Joe and I will dive deeper into the audio editor and talk a lot more about the actual effects that you’ll want to consider when post producing your audio.
