Our podcast studio, is equipped with an user friendly board that does not require an audio engineer. When you start and finish your studio session, a staff member will be available to assist with sound checks, start and stop the recording, and transfer your files. If you are new to our studio, we can also help you with good microphone practices.
For more complex recording applications, an engineer or producer can be helpful for your recording session. Please call us and we can help you determine your needs. Unfortunately, we do not have an audio engineer on staff; however, we are happy to provide information on how to hire an independent audio engineer.
You bet! One of our staff members will always be around to make sure your recording goes smoothly. We assume you will have some basic audio editing skills, as most recordings will need some lighting editing after you record. For example, it is best to adjust gain levels, apply light compression and a hard limiter, and master your recording before distribution.
If you are unfamiliar with audio editing and digital audio software we recommend that you take some time prior to reserving studio time to learn basic editing skills and become familiar. You can save money by doing the post-production work – editing, mixing and mastering – on your personal computer.
That will depend on the kind of project you are recording for. Please be aware that there will be another recording session after yours, so you will need to be out of the studio no later than the time your reservation ends. Time is of the essence – your session time begins at the scheduled start time of your reservation and ends at the scheduled end time. If the studio is not booked prior to your start time, we may have the flexibility to get you in a few minutes early, but not always. Please refrain from using the control board or studio prior to the start of your session without first checking with a staff member.
As a point of reference, if you are conducting a 30-minute interview with a guest, you should book a time frame that includes setup time (sound check, etc.) and some time after to transfer your files. A 30-minute studio session will result in cutting you off early to keep things on schedule.
We offer podcast editing services through our Members Only Club, we do not offer producing, or distribution services. Our podcast studio rental is primarily a DIY solution, so please be aware that other than getting your recording studio started and finished, the staff generally won’t be available to help with other aspects of your show.
