Section 1: Recording & Editing Your Podcast
Welcome to Podcast Acadamy

Congratulations on enrolling in the FastTRACK To Podcast Mastery Program!

First and foremost, here's the link to download Audacity: http://web.audacityteam.org/

OK! Are you ready to get started? Let's get the simple (yet crucial) stuff out of the way.

This video will walk you thru setting up your mic and getting your audio levels right for recording your podcast.

In order to record in any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), a track has to be created where the audio can reside. This step walks you through creating a track and preparing for recording!

By now, you should have your Audacity software set up, microphone levels tested and track ready to go! Here's where the fun begins! This lesson will show you exactly what you need to do to record your podcast track!

Let's go!!!


This is a crucial step, especially when you're a beginner in recording and editing. This step ensures that you can protect your original track and make any changes to a cloned track!

Let's do this!!!

You'll really find this one useful and a time-saver! You're going to treat your podcast like a song! All songs go through major editing, mixing and mastering. While you may not need to do all that for your podcast, you will find that removing noises, bad sounds and NO sounds is a big part of ensuring you have a clean podcast for your listeners. So, pay attention and LET'S GO!
There are two times where you can adjust your audio... During the recording and after the recording. Chances are, you'll be doing both! How? Let's find out!

This is a crucial lesson as you begin to explore ways of creating a more entertaining podcast. Remember that while podcasts are meant to be educational and informative, being dull is not a pre-requisite for learning. You can learn to have fun and add music and flare to your listeners' experience. Let's begin!

As always, if you have special requests or questions about this lesson, be sure to email me at rami@proaudiopodcast.com

In the previous lesson, we covered how to add music to your podcast for the purpose of having a music intro, which we all know adds a layer of entertainment to your audience experience. This next lesson is short and IMPORTANT! It's about moving your podcast track to allocate time for the music. Let's jump right in!
Isn't it funny how we tend to underestimate the most simple yet crucial steps to some things in life? I can think of at least a dozen instances where I've failed to save a file in time, only to lose literally hours of hard work. This lesson is designed to ensure that doesn't happen with you podcast. You'll also learn how to export files into different formats! Be vigilant about this step often! Let's go!

Sometimes, you'll want to have a longer introduction, possibly introducing guests and a topic. When you do so, you may not want to have just audio in the beginning. Instead this lesson will show you how to begin speaking from the very beginning while keeping your intro music at a level that will not overshadow your voice. Are you ready? Let's get into it!
