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.
It's a good idea to go over your podcast with different pairs of headphones so that you have a good idea what your podcast sounds like especially in the consumer spectrum.
By listening to your podcast with different pairs of headphones you can adjust the EQ so that it sounds the best as it possibly can. Using good microphones is also a good idea because that way you can record better clearer audio than possible with standard mic in microphones or built in microphones on computers.
