I've always had curiosity about podcasts, but never tried to create one of my own until today. And I must say it's been a great experience!
This is probably thanks to Wildvoice Podcast Studio, a great application that helps you take your first steps into the podcast universe.
Once you read the accompanying guide and familiarize yourself with the program you'll be able to handle every stage in the process, from recording your voice to publishing your podcast.
What's more, if you don't have any web space where to store it, you can create an account in the Wildvoice site and publish your podcast right there for free.
Of course, podcasts are not only about talking. The program enables you to easily add music, with support for the most popular formats. You can insert short music clips or else use it as background soundtrack by adjusting the volume level.
Wildvoice Podcast Studio includes also a great variety of sound effects to add to your recording, achieving a higher degree of realism or producing a hilarious mixture of sounds.
The only problem I found here was that some sound effects are much louder than others, which affects the quality of the recording.
The podcast can be created as a series of short audio clips and that makes the job even easier to manage.
Once you're happy with the result – which you can check at any time with the Preview function – you can save it as an MP3.
Although it may look complicated at the beginning, Wildvoice Podcast Studio is an excellent tool to get you started with podcasts.
