Show Notes Chapter Markers

Welcome to Season 2 of The Audacity Channel podcast. This season of the show is dedicated to making our initial audio as good as it can be. Making sure we've done all we can do to make our initial recordings the best they can be can save hours of editing and post-production mastering and cleanup. In this initial episode of Season 2, we return to the topic of room treatments. Good recorded audio for our podcasts and audiobooks starts with a well-treated room or recording space and room treatments don't have to be expensive to work well. In fact, you may already have everything you need to treat a room for spoken word recordings.

Here's a look at the topics we're covering in each episode of Season 2 of The Audacity Channel podcast:

  • Episode 1: Recording Room Preparation
  • Episode 2: Microphone Types
  • Episode 3: Microphone Placement
  • Episode 4: Microphone Technique
  • Episode 5: My Recording Hardware Chain
  • Episode 6: Audio Quality: Hitting the Mark for Excellent Audio
