ePodcast Creator is a suite of products for recording audio clips and editing and publishing podcasts. Created by long-time PC audio experts Industrial Audio Software, ePodcast Creator gives you precise control over your voice-clip recordings.
The main ePodcast Creator program divides itself into music and voice categories, where you compose your show with clips from each. To record voice clips, you can either click the record button on the main screen or launch the full-featured ePC Editor from the tools menu. The editor has many effects you can apply to your voice as well as some cleaning technology to remove hiss, pops, and ticks.
Once you are ready to publish your podcast, select "Launch ePX" from the Tools menu, and a publishing wizard will pop up. From the wizard you can select the podcast you want to publish, preview it, and then upload it via FTP to your web host.
The ePC Editor is one of the more complete audio editors on the market. You'd have to move way up to the professional ProTools to get more functionality. These effects are included with the ePC Editor: Amplify, Bass, Boost, Chorus, Echo, Equalize, Fade-In, Flange, Fade-Out, Noise, GateLow, PassMix, "Pops and Clicks," Removal, Normalize, Reverse, and Sound Warmer. Most of the effects have a menu of adjustments; if you have a desired level of effect you want to reach, you can usually achieve it.
ePodcast Creator also includes a powerful feature called Record Cleaner (under the Tools menu) that will process a whole sound file for cleanup of hums, hisses, and pops and clicks.
