Hey podcasters! This one’s for you!
Last year, nearly all of us started using Zoom for the first time. We used it to keep in touch with iPhone-less family members, celebrate birthdays, and communicate with colleagues. It was great because it was easy enough for both grandpa and little Timmy to use.
And for most, Zoom will continue to be great. Well, good enough. Your free, basic account will still let you connect with friends, family, and co-workers for 40 or so minutes like normal. But, what if you need to take it to the next level? What if you need to record it? What if you need high definition video and high quality audio?
Well, then give riverside.fm a try.
The guys at riverside.fm have been quietly working behind the scenes as the whole world turned to technology to keep in touch, and quality is their kung fu grip. Without getting too technical, riverside.fm uses your internet browser (not your internet speed) to record your video and audio locally (for you and your guest). This means that as internet speed ebbs and flows, the video and audio quality remain untouched.
Now for those of you that know I have a commercial recording studio in Los Angeles, you’re probably thinking “Um, why would try to put yourself out of business?” For the same reason I’m not trying to sell horse and buggy accessories – times changes and it’s up to us to adjust.
Using your computer, a half way decent microphone, and some 3.5mm headphones, you can record your high definition audio + video podcast with guests anywhere in the world.
Plus! Livestream to Facebook + YouTube + Twitter!
If you’re a podcaster still using Zoom to record your podcasts, give riverside.fm a try. It can’t hurt, and for the price of two Starbucks coffees, you can record up to 2 beautiful AV hours of content.
Happy podcasting friends!
