Music – Enhance your podcast

Hello and welcome to the computers with ease podcast, have you ever noticed when listening to a podcast that there’s music at the beginning and end of the podcast as well as possibly music in between the different segments of the podcast itself.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to do this for your own podcast ? if so it’s relatively easy to do there are a few things that you need to be able to do this on your own. The first is royalty-free music, royalty-free music is simply music that you have purchased or obtained for free that you have the right to use without having to pay anyone for using the music.

There are several places that you can get this music from, one is www.pond5.com another one is triple W.audio blocks.com www.audioblocks.com  and another one is www.opuzz.com each of these sites has a wide variety of music to choose from to suit the style of the podcast.

Once you have the music you need, you will need a piece of software called a mixer or mixing software is a program that allows you to take several pieces of audio placed on individual tracks and then the software will simply combined all the tracks together into one audio file.

The software that I use is called mix pad it works very well and allows you to create either a wav file or an MP3 file, which you can then upload as a podcast once it’s complete. One of the things that I’ve done is to create a mix pad file with my introduction music on track one and my exit music for my podcast is on track three, and each time I do a podcast I open that particular mix pad file and simply load the podcast itself onto track number two.

Then adjust the placement of the ending music within mix pad and finally I create the finished MP3 file which I upload as my podcast. The process is very simple and easy once you’ve done it a few times, I hope you found this helpful.
