Changes That Have Occurred In Podcast Technology

Written by on August 12, 2018

There was a time when you had to pay a lot of money to start a podcast. You would have to invest in a few pieces of equipment that would give you the voice of a “radio host”, alongside other things that you would have to spend a great deal of money on. That includes bandwidth, editing tools, and much more. Today, there have been a lot of changes to the podcasting world, and you may find that you could very well see that it’s easier than ever to start, edit, and publish anything, and thrive as a result. It’s easier than ever to start, get engagement, and even create sales through the establishment of trust, education, and more. Audio connects more than other marketing formats of course, but there have been some changes in the literal technology in podcasting that you should know about.

Ease of Recording

The first major change that you may discover is simple, the ease of recording is a lot easier than ever to manage. For instance, you’re going to find that you don’t need a high end condenser microphone to get started. But if you did want to purchase a condenser microphone, you could, and it would be under $100, alongside a pop filter that is less than $10. With those two components, you have the audio power to create a podcast, and sound like you’re in a studio.

The ease of recording comes into play with the software that is available as well. You are not stuck with having to pay a lot of money for good software. You can use free options, as well as low cost solutions to help you get started. You may also find that you could buy certain computer systems, such as the offerings from Apple, and get full blown audio recording studios in “one”.

Cost of Hosting and Publishing

The next thing that you are going to find in terms of technological changes is the cost of hosting, and publishing. Ok, the cost itself isn’t a technological issue, but rather, you will find that the technology is so ubiquitous that it has driven down the price point. The price point of hosting can go from free, to $.99 a month, to the higher end with private servers and more. Publishing your podcast and getting it in the ears of many people, with relative ease as well.

Audio File Changes and Tech

The ages of MP3 files being heavy in size is long gone. You can compress files with relative ease. Audio file changes and tech is interesting in that you can create MP3 and other audio files that are smaller than ever, and easier to stream, download, and listen to on the go. In fact, many people don’t even download podcasts, they listen to them streaming on the web through a plethora of applications. That means more access, and easier management of audio than ever before. All of that without having to downloading anything, or dealing with space constraints, and more. In fact, there’s a whole industry based around podcasting tech, and file sizes alone.
