A common and (now) unnecessary barrier to getting started in podcasting – and audio communication in general – is figuring out how to record and edit audio.
There are myriad digital audio workstations (DAWs), most of them complex, expensive and primarily designed for music production.
Choosing one that’s intuitive, fits your budget and works with your device can be a real challenge.
Introducing Whooshkaa Cloud Studio
Our Cloud Studio provides podcasters with an easy-to-use recording and editing solution that requires nothing more than a web browser.
We’re launching it today and including it on all paid plans.
Cloud Recorder allows you to capture audio directly into Whooshkaa.
You will now see a “Record” option in both the Whooshkaa Media Library and when you create Episodes.
The recording wizard leads you through the steps of selecting your microphone, checking your audio level and recording your audio.
Any audio capture device you have connected will work – whether it’s a built-in microphone, USB microphone or audio interface like mixers and preamps.
Cloud Recorder works in all modern browsers on desktop computers, laptops and smartphones.
Here’s a short video demonstration of Cloud Recorder.
You can use Cloud Recorder for full episodes or short clips – like announcements, pick ups and ad reads.
When your audio is recorded, Whooshkaa will automatically optimize the audio and get it ready for delivery to your audience.
Most podcast editing comprises of a few key tasks:
- Adding audio - for example intro / outro music
- Removing audio - removing segments like old ‘baked-in’ ads
- Splicing audio - replacing mistakes or adding in additional audio
- Volume adjustments
Cloud Editor provides you with the tools to achieve all of these in the browser.
Watch this short video demonstration of Cloud Editor’s key functions.
Still to come…
One of our main goals at Whooshkaa is to help podcasters save time and money. That’s why we’ve built features like transcription, video highlights, dynamic insertion and a media library.
The first release of Cloud Studio allows you to record a single track and we plan to add multi-input recording this year.
As always we’d love to hear how we can continue to help you on your podcasting journey. Got some feedback? Drop us a line through the Whooshkaa Support Portal.
