I’m not sure how many other podcasters are out there, but if you are one, and you use a Mac, you might want to check out WireTap Anywhere. We use it on our Lock and Load podcast here on P*N and it’s a huge asset to have for us, it really makes our jobs easlier when it comes to mixing in several different audio devices and software into one. Here is what they have to say about it,
Create virtual input devices with an arbitrary number of channels of audio. Discretely map audio channels from software applications and hardware devices in any combination you choose. Adjust audio levels on a per-channel basis both pre- and post-mix. Preview your audio mix before you ever hit the record button.
If you are new to podcasting, you should really look into this, and don’t let the $129 price scare you away, considering the hardware alternatives to handle the mixing the way WireTap Anywhere does, it’s actually a whole lot cheaper and it’s a whole lot easier as well.
