Hey there #NaijaPodHuber
What are the steps you take to ensure you have everything you need to record your new episode?
NaijaPodHub has put together a list for you & this applies to you if you have a podcast already or recently decided to start one.
Before you apply these steps, it means your podcast has a name, a logo, your content is well defined, you have a mic or you want to record with your phone etc.
If not, you need to get these ready. We'd help with that as we progress
Decide the topic for the episode.
Make bullet points to help you go from start to finish.
3. Pick a recording date and time.
4. Consider all possibility of noise:
your neighbour’s iBetterPassMyNeighbour generator, the church
vigil next door, the unexpected birthday, your little sister’s tea
party or sleep over, your mum's august meeting, LAGOS!!! 0r Nigeria, consider it
5. Setup your microphone.
Are you using your phone to record? Can it record in airplane mode? Are you using a
USB microphone or a dynamic microphone? Is your microphone set as your
input device? If that isn't done, you will be recording with your laptop's inbuilt
microphone which isn't what you want .
6. Setup your DAW
Adobe audition, Garage band, Audacity, Protools etc. These are all Digital Audio
Workspaces that you can use for complete pre & post-production of your podcast.
7. Setup your laptop for recording.
8. If you need to use the internet, don't forget to subscribe.
9. Do a test recording and listen back.
10. Now hit the record button and you are all set.
After all these steps, if you still have issues, be it technical or otherwise, kindly reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment and we'd get back to you.
