Podcasting with GarageBand 3: Recording a PodcastIn Part 5 of our excerpt's of Lynda.com's GarageBand series, trainer Scott Bourne delves into what we've been waiting for
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.
Now we're finally going to create a podcast project in GarageBand. Scott offers some tips; Make sure that you're in a good room where sound won't bounce around too much and so that your audio will sound good with minimal echo. Before you start recording your podcast practice working with your audio levels so that there's as little audio clipping or distortion. Review your recordings as many times as you feel comfortable so that you are sure that your recordings sound as you want them.
