Equalization & Compression was really helpful since I wasn’t using it before for Natalie’s biweekly podcasts. Will definitely start including these tips.

I’m pleased to hear it Naomi. Thanks for stopping by….

Is compression really necessary if I use Levelator? Thanks!


Dan September 26, 2011 at 7:48 am

Levelator is a really harsh form of compression but does the job well.
If you already use it you don’t need an additional compressor….

Hi Dan,

Love your information – it’s super helpful. Could you direct me toward the free editing software Audacity? I’ve tried many links but they all seem to charge a fee.

Thanks for your time,

Enjoying your podcasts and blog very much – a recent discovery. Thanks for your generosity, aussie accent and, for a podcast, coming straight to the point! (wish other podcasters would do that…)
