How to Record a Podcast - Best Practices for Recording

Back up your voice recordings

If you don’t have 2 copies of something digital, you don’t have it at all. Record with peace of mind by running the Recorder in the background during remote recordings and interviews. Ask your guests to do the same. 

Enhance your Zoom recordings

Get rid of glitches and lower-quality sound from Zoom calls. Just start recording on the Resonate Recorder during your Zoom call, and ask your guest to do the same, then combine the 2 files in post-production. 

Zoom

Record a voice note to capture creativity

Don’t let inspiration about your podcast go to waste. Open the Recorder and capture a demo of that podcast intro idea, the topic for season 2, or your new strategy for inviting a guest to the show.

Best practices for recording

✅ Use an external mic

Connect a USB microphone or headphones to record. Even a simple pair of Apple Earpods can make a big difference in the quality of your recording. 

✅ Record on Google Chrome

Use the latest version of Google Chrome on computers for best results. This software was built to be optimized for the Chrome environment.  

✅  Find a quiet recording space

Move to a smaller room, preferably one with large soft objects — a bed, couch, or rugs. Turn off your HVAC system. Avoid holding the device if recording on mobile.

✅  Apply proper mic technique

If using an external mic, position your mouth 2-4 inches from the mic. Learn about mic designs to ensure you are talking into the right place. It sounds basic but this is critical. 

✅  Record a test before you start

Record a brief clip of your audio, and listen back to review the quality. Make sure you don’t hear any loud background noise, and that your voice sounds clear.

✅  Take a deep breath 

Take a minute to compose yourself and breathe before hitting record. Slowing down before you press record helps minimize mistakes and create a calm environment for listeners.
