  4. Microcast Studio · 4: Getting Started With Microcasting: Audio Processing Basics (8 mins.)

    On this episode, Manton and Jean talk about post-processing your audio files for podcast use. The simplest step is to make sure it is an MP3, for maximum compatibility with audio players. A next step is to pay attention to audio leveling and loudness normalization, so that your file plays at the optimal volume. We both use Auphonic, an online service, to process all our podcast files. (They offer 2 hours of free processing per month, which is perfect for a microcast!)

    Wavelength, the Micro.blog iOS podcast app can even link to your Auphonic account and send out your Wavelength recording for processing before publishing it.

    Micro.blog makes it easy to create microcasts, and microcasts are a great way to get started if you want to create an audio series of any length. A microcast is just a short podcast, maybe 5-10 minutes. At Micro.blog, we added free microcast hosting through April 2020 to all Micro.blog paid accounts to provide a new outlet for people who want to try new things and to cope with today’s challenges in a positive and creative way.

    Feel free to send questions to jean@microcast.studio!
