‘The Professional’s Guide to Audio Podcast Production’ by Jim Metzendorf began as an enormously successful project on Kickstarter in 2012, and is now available for purchase by the general public.
About ‘The Guide’
The core product is a DRM-free PDF that covers everything you need to know (and more) about producing a podcast with professional results. ‘The Professional’s Guide to Audio Podcast Production’ contains equipment recommendations, recording and editing tips/tricks, workflow strategies, and more.
Audio Processing Presets
In addition to the DRM-free PDF, processing presets are available to help make your shows sound better right away with customizable EQ and dynamics plug-in settings. The presets are designed for use with Logic, Pro Tools, and are easily adaptable to any DAW that offers EQ, Compressor, Limiter, and Noise Gate signal processing.
Installation instructions are provided along with a tutorial video that shows how to use the plug-ins within Logic.
The guide is platform agnostic—it doesn’t matter what Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software you use. The information it contains is applicable to Mac, PC and Linux computers.
