Recording and post-production software recommendation

After brainstorming, planning, and recording your podcast, the next step is to beautify and refine audio files. This article recommends recording and post-production software you may consider to suit your needs!

Podcasts usually deal with multitrack recording and basic editing tools for post-production purposes.

Free recording and editing software

For beginners, we recommend using Garageband for those on Mac and Audacity for those on Windows.


This is probably the go-to software for audio editing and creation for those running on iOS or Mac operating systems. If you are a solo podcaster, you can simply plug in your USB microphone to start recording.

If you are a pair of podcasters planning to simultaneously record your podcast on the same computer, search for "Finder" > "Utilities" > "Audio MIDI Setup."

At the bottom left corner of the screen, select "+" and choose to "Create Aggregate Device." Select the input devices you want to use.

2. Audacity
If you're operating on a Windows computer, Audacity is likely one of the easiest and most popular free-to-use recording software out there. It supports both single track and multitrack recording, making it ideal for solo podcasters, a pair podcasters, and even a group of podcasters through an external recording device.


Paid recording and editing software

3. Adobe Audition
Most free software can sufficiently provide essential recording and editing tools. However, if you are searching for a software with more advanced functions such as noise reduction, sound adjustments, and special effects, you may choose to invest in a paid software such as Adobe Audition.
