The Audacity Bootcamp is a podcast for podcasters and a resource for creating great audio for our podcasts and videos. You'll find helpful topics relevant and useful to podcast and video editors who use Audacity as their audio editing platform. My name is Mike Adams and I’m currently a podcast and video host, editor, and producer. My audio recording and production experience began in the mid-1990s and my podcasting career launched in March of 2015.

Welcome to episode 18 of the Audacity Bootcamp podcast. Are you thinking about starting a podcast? What kind of hardware and software will you need and how much is it going to cost? Do I need to sink hundreds of dollars into microphones and other hardware? Do I need to spend thousands of dollars on a studio quality room? How about software training…

Welcome to episode 16 of First Person Audio, the podcast formerly known as Audacity Bootcamp. Here's some techy stuff: I recorded this episode using my Rode NT1 condenser mic recording into my Zoom H6.

All of the existing content will remain as well as the current subscriptions to my YouTube channel. If I do th…
 
Welcome to episode 13 of the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I'm back from a month long road trip and while I was gone, I started hearing and reading concerns over Audacity becoming spyware under its new ownership. Also today, April 26, 2021, a new version of Audacity (3.0.3) was released. Coincidence? Let's talk. Here are the links I mention in this ep…

Welcome to episode 10 of The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I've reached double digits. Yay! One of the bad raps Audacity gets is that editing in Audacity is destructive. That simply means that once you edit and/or put an effect on your Audacity project and then save and close the project, the edits you just did, along with the effects you just put on …
 
Welcome to episode 9 of the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. What's Apple doing with our podcasts? I've had some weird experiences with Apple on my podcasts these last few days. I updated my iPhone to iOS 14.5 (I probably should have waited) and weird things started happening. The latest episode of another show I do never showed up in my Apple Podcast ap…

Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I'm always curious about what others use for their podcast setup. I've watched countless videos and listened to a lot of podcasts by podcasters who've taken the time to talk about the recording hardware and software they use to record and edit their show. It's like peeking inside their recording environment…
 
Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. I teach podcast courses on Audacity and a question that comes up frequently has to do with the difference beween loudness (LUFS) and volume. It can be a challenge to wrap our brains around, but there is a difference. The bottom line is that loudness is digitally embedded in the waveform as part of our editi…
 
Welcome to this 5th episode of the recently launched Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. Today, let's talk about the new macro features in Audacity 3.0.0. I've started using macros to run repetitive commands within Audacity and it's a real time saver. Unlike Office programs like Word or Excel, where you can record mouse clicks to create a macro, you have to…
 
Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. Let's talk about 2 new features in Audacity 3.0.0. The first one I talk about is project backups. This is a powerful tool that's new in version 3.0.0. At any point while working on a project we can now save a backup copy of it. The backup copy is a snapshot of the entire project at that moment in time. This…
 
Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. The noise gate in Audacity version 3.0.0 doesn't work. It's broken. It looks like it works, but it doesn't. There's a promised fix pending in the upcoming version 3.0.1 but until then, there is no noise gate in 3.0.0. If there's an upside, it's that the Attack Time has been separated out from the Decay Time…
 
Did you know it's a good idea to press Z on your keyboard while editing your podcast? Pressing Z invokes the Zero Crossing Tool and it's something that should be done every time you have a section of audio highlighted, but before you edit that section. For example, if you're going to amplify, delete, attenuate, or insert silence in section of audio…
