So, how do we think it went?
Well, none of us are sound engineers, so the learning curve was initially steep. Editing the podcast was also a relatively new experience and could’ve been done more efficiently, but I’m pretty happy with what we achieved on the first try.
There was also an issue validating with iTunes, (now resolved and understood,) and a few sound issues – pops and crackles from the mics, people sitting too far away etc – We’ve learned from those issues and improved our next episodes.
For episode two Andy, a sound engineer friend of ours, set up the mics. We bought scissor arms, shock mounts and pop filters to improve the recording quality. We also recorded into Logic rather than Garageband, giving us better options for things like compressors and noise gates, as well as editing and post production. Andy shared some of his tricks, tips and best practices with myself and Liam so we can deliver the best quality Star Wars podcast possible!
Despite initial challenges, the feedback is positive, the podcast has been downloaded over fifty times and we have three 5-Star reviews on iTunes – that’s all in less than a week since launch!
