Perfect for Podcasts

With Sound Studio 3 you can record professional sounding Podcasts and other audio dialog. Check out the article on Suggested Recording Hardware to find out more about how to mic properly and other useful audio information.

Positioned perfectly between more expensive programs with steep learning curves, and far less robust apps, Sound Studio 3 is for anyone who needs to record or edit audio. Some other possible applications include:

* Lectures
* Voice-notes
* Sermons
* Performances
* and more!

We at Freeverse have always found Sound Studio to be the perfect app for recording voiceovers, tweaking audio , or creating sound effects (monkey noises included of course). We've used it for years to create all the dialog and sound effects in our games, which is why we're so thrilled to be publishing this amazing new edition.
