Setting up a podcast is one of the best and most effective ways to present information to your audience. Don’t be afraid of starting your own digital radio show, digest, or serialized audiobook – creating them is not difficult, even if you do it at home.
For producing good podcasts, you’ll need to get proper sound capturing equipment – most importantly, a microphone and headphones. Plus, any podcast creator needs reliable software for making and editing audio tracks. Try Movavi Screen Capture Studio: it’s functional, fast, and very simple to use. It will help you to become a podcast producer in no time: just capture your voice, add some music, and edit the result so it’s just how you want it. Screen Capture Studio, as its name implies, is much more than just a podcast generator; it’s also a powerful tool for capturing and editing streaming video and screen activity, saving Skype calls, ripping webinars, and a whole lot else besides.
To learn how to start a podcast with Screen Capture Studio, just download it to your PC and follow this short guide to podcast creation.
Step 1: Install the Program
Launch the setup file you’ve just downloaded and follow the instructions on your screen. Once the installation process is complete, the program will open automatically.
When the program launches, you’ll see a start window with different options. To capture your voice track, click Record audio.
Step 2: Capture Your Voice
Before you start, set the audio preferences: choose your microphone in the Audio capture device list and set the name and folder for your new audio file in the Saving captured files area. When you’re ready, click Start Capture.
To finish and save the audio, click Stop Capture. To open the folder where the file has been saved, click View saved files.
Step 3: Edit the Podcast
Go back to the start window (if you’ve already closed it, you’ll need to launch the program again) and click Edit video to open the built-in editor for video and audio files. In the new window, click Add Media Files, select the previously saved audio file, and click Open. Now you can adjust your track however you wish: delete unwanted elements, set the audio volume and speed, even add background music behind your voice.
To edit the audio track, select it on the timeline. If you want to cut unwanted elements, place the red marker at the beginning of the segment you want to cut out and click the Scissors button. Then move the red marker to the end point of the unwanted segment and click the Scissors again. Now you can delete the separated piece by selecting it and clicking the Wastebin button. The remaining parts will be joined automatically.
If you want to link up another track or add background music to your digital audio show, open the Import tab, click the Add Media Files button, and select the desired audio file. It will be joined automatically to your voice recording. If you want to use the additional audio as the background music, select it on the timeline and drag it down to a separate audio track, as shown in the illustration.
To change the volume or speed of your audio track, select it on the timeline, open the Tools tab and drag the Volume and Speed sliders to the desired positions.
Step 4: Save the Result
If you’re satisfied with the result, save your audio track by clicking the Export button. In the new dialogue window, open the Save Only Audio tab and choose the format, folder where you want to save the file, and the filename. Finally, click Start. Congratulations! You’ve just produced a podcast, and now you can do whatever you want with it: share it with friends, upload it to your blog, or add it to a popular website and wait for it to become popular!
With Movavi Screen Capture Studio, podcast production is really easy. Just try it and you’ll soon be a skilled podcast maker!
