Hi there! My name is Aaron. I made this show to help people like you make a great podcast. If you're interested in learning about podcast production, storytelling, recording gear, growing an audience, getting better at communicating and speaking, overcoming the hurdles, connecting with your listeners, expanding your personal and professional network, and other things like that, this is the show for you. Since 2012, I've been lucky enough to work with many great podcasts, including shows from Dribbble, seanwes, 5by5, SVS Learn, Shoptalk, CodePen, and more. This show contains nearly everything I've learned about podcasting in the past 10 years, and I'm still making updates and new episodes as I learn more. Thanks for listening, and happy podcasting!
The topic this week came from a question I got from a listener. He asked, “Why don't you use hardware to do things like EQ and compression before recording audio to your computer?” There's nothing wrong with doing processing on your audio before recording it to your computer, I just prefer to do that processing in my software (Logic Pro X) instead.
Another question I see a lot is, “What's the difference between a mixer and a interface?” So this week I'm going to explain the difference between a hardware mixer and an audio interface, and talk about why I believe mixers are becoming less necessary even if you want to stream live shows with guests.
