One of the things BooksGoSocial has to help their members promote their books is a SoundCloud Channel for book excerpts.
That got me thinking because SoundCloud offers recording options, but I always like to get things perfect before going anywhere near online. I know lots of people already know about Audacity, but I thought I'd make a post about it anyway for those who don't.
Audacity is the answer for anyone trying to record sound quickly and easily. There are many wonderful things about it, and here is a list of why I love it.
- Great user interface - very straightforward
- Multiple tracks
- Noise reduction filters
- Lots of other filters
- Easy set-up
- Exports to mp3
- Is FREE unless you wish to donate
- They have a wiki with all the tutorials and help you need.
- They also have a manual with everything
With the noise reduction filter, however, standard headset mics work fine.
