WELCOME TO OUR STUDIO

So if you're a real geek 🤓 you'll want to know all about the equipment we use.  We have a growing group of Production Partners, who use slightly different hardware, but here's a quick tour of Studio 1

AUDIO  PODCAST PRODUCTION

Each piece of audio we work with is unique, so we don't have a set routine or workflow that we follow, but generally spoken word audio will be EQ'd, to make it cut through and give the speaker more presence, then the audio will be edited in the style to suit the client.  Some like to aim for a particular length show, and some like us to edit for flow of conversation.  This involves editing out gaps, some 'ums and ers' (that don't add to the conversation), and other 'thinking words' stutters, corrections and repetition that slows down the flow of the conversation.

The audio is then mixed with the pre-produced show intro and outro segments and theme music which we produced earlier.  Finally, audio is uploaded to the Carrotcrucher Podcast Network and scheduled for release.  Whether your show is produced by Pete, or one of our trusted Production Partners, rest assured it will be to the same high standard, as we all work by the same Client Centred values.

All of our show production charges are based on the length of source material supplied by the client.  This is because we review and work on every syllable of every word.  You can shadow one of our audio edits by watching this video ⏬⏬⏬

VIDEO PODCAST PRODUCTION

Each video podcast we work with is unique, so we don't have a set routine or workflow that we follow, but generally footage will be colour graded to make the visuals look as good as possible.  With multi-camera recordings, the recordings will need to be tweaked bearing the other camera image in mind.  Some clients prefer a highly stylised image, whilst most prefer a natural look.  

Once we're happy that the image is as good as the source material allows, we look at the audio. Spoken word audio will be EQ'd, to make it cut through and give the speaker more presence, then we're ready to start editing the content.  Some clients like a Zoom style gallery view with interview shows, but most prefer the speaker to be shown full screen when they are talking, with the camera capturing the other participant for occasional reactions and to mask over edits we make.  This avoids those YouTube style jump edits, which are done to speed the process up.

Some clients like to aim for a particular length of show, and some like us to edit for flow of conversation.  This involves editing out gaps, some 'ums, and ers' (that don't add to the conversation), and other 'thinking words' stutters, corrections and repetition that slows down the flow of the conversation.  

The video then has additional messaging, logos, branding, etc added.  It's mixed with pre-produced show intro and outro segments and theme music which we produced earlier. 

Finally, the video is uploaded to the client's video host, while the audio is taken from the final video, and mixed into Podcast specific intro and outros then uploaded to the Carrotcrucher Podcast Network and scheduled for release. 

Whether your show is produced by Pete, or one of our trusted Production Partners, rest assured it will be to the same high standard, as we all work by the same  Client Centred values.

TUTORIAL VIDEOS

If you'd rather not outsource your podcast and wanted to do it yourself (I'm not sure why we're telling you this!), you can download Audacity.  It's similar to Adobe Audition; not as good, but it's FREE.  Here's the download link: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/

Here are 3 very simple beginner tutorials to get you going (there's plenty more on YouTube)
