Hindenburg is a DAW that I fell in love with over 2 years ago for it's ease and auto sound improvements. It's also a DAW that's less known, which is unfortunate. But this is about to change because they've recently revealed that they're adding a video function that's like no other. Personally, I think this new tool is going to help MANY podcasters get YouTube videos ready with less stress and more quality video sound. Let me explain.
I thought I liked to experiment with different DAWs but Puneeth puts me to shame! He tried more than 6 DAWs before landing on his current one. In this interview he also shares the business knowledge he wished he knew when he started, how he usually gets clients, pricing trickiness and his professional goals for 2023.
ow many passes do you do for a podcast that’s audio AND video? A possibly more interesting question is how do you listen differently during these two very different kinds of edits? And that’s where I’m pitching the editing feature today.
Is it audio or video?
Audio and video are two different types of edits. It’s true that I have some clients that want the video edited and then just repurpose the audio from that. It’s not my favorite method but for some budgets, it makes sense. In an ideal world, audio and video should be different edits.
It may seem obvious but …
audio=editing for the ear
video=editing for the eyes
You can have far more verbal stumbles in a video without viewers noticing or caring but in audio, it would be a deal breaker. I’m going to describe how I listen differently to video and audio.
The break-out text is lyrics from "Out Here On My Own” by the late Irene Cara
Sometimes I wonder where I've been,
Who I am,
Do I fit in.
Make believein' is hard alone,
Out here on my own.
I’m having a doctor-heal-thyself moment with my own new solopreneur podcast, Solopreneur Podcasting Tips. It goes a little something like this.
Conversation sound hugs
This Happiness Lab episode, The Handbook for Sonic Happiness – A Twenty Thousand Hertz/Happiness Lab Mash-up, brings up a good point about how careful we are about other sensory elements but often neglect sound. In interview podcasts, I feel like we look for sounds (music specifically) that go into a space where music is supposed to go. But what if there were more intentionality with sound in even “just talk episodes?” Not over sound-scaping episodes. I hate it when there are too many distracting sounds when just a voice is appropriate.
But why isn’t there more sound between talking segments in interview and similar episodes?
I’d like to invite you to the podcast editing service pricing seesaw I’ve been riding for the past couple of months. Sometimes I think I’m/we’re not charging enough for my/our services and sometimes I think I’m/we’re charging too much. Up, down, up, down. The prices go in my head. Let me explain.
DAW curious and podcast passionate I am. And so I write about creating and shaping podcast audio.
