Hubhopper
Hubhopper is the best tool to create podcasts and publish them from literally anywhere in the world. Also, they have a free listener platform where users can listen to the podcasts, anyone. It's really a good place to hang out, especially for our employees where we encourage them to hear podcasts of famous persons/motivators. We use Hubhopper to create podcasts from our channel and share them with our employees.

Highly recommended for voice over recording and editing. Great for splicing together several different recorded files to create a final track. Our voice over talent typically sends us their unedited recordings with multiple recordings of the script. Then we can listen to the different versions to select the best fit for our client. We just select the sections we like and copy them into a new file, then continue to add the sections until we have the final voice over. It is easy to tighten up or stretch out the recording to better fit our timeline.
We have not used WavePad for recording live music so not sure how well it is suited for that. If you need multi-track editing you will need another product. MixPad makes a nice companion.

  • Voice recording is our most used function. It is simple and straight forward. We have trained non-technical voice over talent to use it.
  • The cleanup tools have saved us from having to go out and rerecord some bad original recordings.
  • Being able to cut out sections of recordings and insert a different audio piece is a great time saver.

Cons
Hubhopper
  • User analytics is really hard to interpret as the data representation is complex
  • The app crashes at some point of time making the audio recorded will be lost forever
  • Sometimes its hard to publish the podcasts as the app is still having some bugs

  • WavePad only works with a single audio track. NCH does offer MixPad for multi-track editing. We also use MixPad occasionally to mix background music with voice.

Easily handles basic audio recording and editing. Advanced editing features are there but if you don't already understand audio editing you will need to watch some of the provided videos to learn how to use the tools.

It's simple and easy to use plus our employees love the app, except with some issues in the app everything is okay, and it's super easy to create and publish the podcast. Really easy to edit the audios in the platform and has the podcast listener portal used for free. Also, the player plugin is really simple and works well.

We ran across WavePad years ago and used it for some simple music file edits. Cutting out some parts to make it fit better into the time slot. Audacity was recommended by a friend and we installed it and give it a brief try. We didn't find anything bad about it but came back to WavePad.

  • We are able to work with local voice-over talent and amateurs and that allows us to keep our cost low to our clients.
  • WavePad is so inexpensive that is pays for itself on the first project. The Master's edition is less than $100 and the standard edition is less than $50.
