    Hindenburg

    Hindenburg

    Hindenburg is a digital audio workstation (DAW) that was specifically designed for broadcast radio and podcasters. It’s also a tool made for audio storytellers. This may sound like a lot at once, so we are just going to focus on podcasting. Lucky for us, this service worked fairly well and proved itself to be software that was made so that you can focus more on telling the story and less on painstakingly fixing the audio. That and we were happy to discover that Hindenburg plays well with others.Ease of Use: 5Support: 4Response time: 4 hours 24 minutesHost Experience: 5Guest Experience: 1Who do we recommend this for?: Solo, Small Team, Mid-size Team, Big EnterpriseWhat makes it special?:It is software so you can use it without the internetExtremely intuitiveGreat online tutorials to help you learn the softwareThe Field Recorder app captured pretty good audioYou can save your work in a form that is compatible with Pro ToolsScreen sharing: noVideo recording: noPain points:If you remotely record, you only get one trackRecording remotely did not work at allThe magic leveler didn’t actually make the podcast sound betterDid we get what they promised?: Yes.

    Airtape

    Airtape

    Airtape's premise is "studio quality remote interview and podcast recording", allowing you to record your podcast or interview in studio quality directly from your web browser. "No installation needed. Get separate tracks, without voice interference, drift or quality loss." Overall, Airtape was a headache to use. Lots of improvement is needed. Would not recommend at this time.Ease of Use (1-5): 1Support (1-5): 2Response time: 19 hours, 10 minutesHost Experience (1-5): 1Guest Experience (1-5): 1Who do we recommend this for?: at this time, no oneWhat makes it special?: N/AScreen sharing: noVideo recording: noPain points:Couldn't get our mics to work at allUnresponsive and confusing interfaceBrowser support issuesNo master trackDoes not deliver "studio quality"Did we get what they promised?: Not at all.tooltip is brought to you by tooltip.com. tooltip finds and recommends the right services at the right scale for everyone, from bootstrappers to high-growth startups.

    Squadcast

    Squadcast

    Squadcast's premise is a "remote recording studio that your audience will love", allowing users to create high-quality audio and video content with their in-browser software for premium recordings auto-saved with cloud storage. Squadcast is in our list of "highly recommended" podcasting tools.Ease of Use (1-5): 5Support (1-5): 5Response time: 5 minutesHost Experience (1-5): 5Guest Experience (1-5): 4Who do we recommend this for?: Indie podcaster, small businesses, growing businesses, full enterprisesWhat makes it special?:You can create future sessions to schedule your recordingsRecorded sessions exist on a cloud, so it's great for organizing your files and not storing everything on your local computerScreen sharing: yesVideo recording: yesPain points:Very minor, some trouble adjusting microphones on the app. If your guest needs to change their mic, they get booted out of the green room or the SquadCast recording. You have to fix it and then you can rejoin, but they don't warn you that they're going to kick you out.Can't have more than 9 or 10 people on a call.Did we get what they promised?: Yes, plus a little bit extra.Tooltip is brought to you by Tooltip.com.

    Anchor FM

    Anchor FM

    Anchor's premise is that you can create, distribute, monetize your podcasts all for free. And, built into it, you can upload sound and you can 'Record with Friends'. They're editing tools that can help you easily edit and publish a podcast even if you're an amateur. However, using Anchor for recording as you’ll see, was a headache. This service has a long way to go when it comes to doing everything, but it definitely is a cool and FREE way for indie podcasters and small businesses to test their podcasting waters.Ease of Use (1-5): 2Support (1-5): 3Response time (1-5): 1 day 26 minutesHost Experience (1-5): 2Guest Experience (1-5): 2Who do we recommend this for?: Solo, Small TeamWhat makes it special?:Free hostingSound LibraryYou can add popular music without paying royaltiesVoicemailsSubscription and Patreon-like support optionSponsorship from advertisers capabilityScreen sharing: noVideo recording: noPain points:The interfaces on the cellphones and computers do not matchSignific mic issues when Recording with FriendsYou cannot download the sound library from AnchorThe distribution is comparable to every other serviceDid we get what they promised?: Sort of. You can definitely host and distribute your podcast as well as make money, this is not the best nor the easy way to edit and record a podcast.tooltip is brought to you by tooltip.com. tooltip finds and recommends the right services at the right scale for everyone, from bootstrappers to high-growth startups.

    Zencastr

    Zencastr

    Zencastr's premise is "High Fidelity Podcasting", that it provides "Studio Quality Sound" by recording a lossless 16-bit 48k WAV audio track per guest, regardless of internet connection (local recording), with no time limits. "Simply send a link and receive a separate track per guest." They do deliver on the quality. Had some minor issues with browser support, but overall Zencastr is high on our list of recommended podcast tools.Ease of Use (1-5): 5Support (1-5): 4Response time: 12 hours, 32 minutesHost Experience (1-5): 4Guest Experience (1-5): 3Who do we recommend this for?: Indie podcast, small teamsWhat makes it special?:Onboard music and sound FX to play during the live recordingCloud backupReal-time monitoring if the audio/video qualityScreen sharing: noVideo recording: yesPain points:Can't use Firefox browser, stuck with Chrome, Brave, or EdgeNot the quickest supportDid we get what they promised?: Yes.tooltip is brought to you by tooltip.com. tooltip finds and recommends the right services at the right scale for everyone, from bootstrappers to high-growth startups.
