Podcasting with GarageBand 3: Getting StartedIn Part 1 of our excerpt's of Lynda.com's Garageband series, trainer Scott Bourne talks about putting a podcast together
The hottest new way to listen to audio--podcasting--meets GarageBand 3, the ingenious Apple software most noted for its music-making capabilities. In Podcasting with GarageBand 3, Scott Bourne takes you step by step through optimizing GarageBand 3 for podcasting, working with track settings for professional-sounding audio, and choosing the best hardware for recording music or vocals.
He also covers techniques for recording voice versus music, how to add background loops to the recording's timeline, the best ways to publish your podcast, and more. Exercise files accompany the training videos, allowing you to follow along and learn at your own pace.
In Getting Started, Scott offers the option to either skip directly to the ?putting it all together section of this tutorial because he creates a podcast from start to finish in one movie, or you can watch all of the movies for step by step directions.
He also goes over where Garageband is located on the computer so you can launch it from where ever it is. When Garageband is opened, it prompts you to create four different project options; choosing podcast prompts you to create a file for your podcast. After you click create, Garageband opens in full screen and allow you to work with the media browser or track editor. Scott says that it's best to get used to the Garageband interface and resize everything to the right sizes that you are comfortable working with.
