Adding music to some podcast is a reasonably easy process utilizing a computer software known as Audacity. The toughest part, for me, is choosing music that meets the atmosphere from the podcast.

As with big budget Hollywood movies, you need to make certain the music your choice comes with the mood from the podcast. For example, you wouldn’t want music having a fast heavy metal and rock beat if you are speaking about something somber.

Individuals a couple of things just don’t match well. Bear in mind that the selection of music, should match the atmosphere from the podcast, or even the moment within the podcast that you are inserting the background music to.

Fundamental essentials steps to include music to some podcast.

The very first factor you need to make certain of, is you possess the legal rights to make use of the background music whatsoever. Garageband for that Mac has a library of royalty free music which you can use as you can see fit. If you are on the PC, or if you wish to apply certain other type of music, perform a look for “royalty free music” and try to find something you like.

Once you have selected your own music, you have to import it the song into Audacity. To achieve that, just launch Audacity, and import your voice file by dragging the file in to the open window. Once you drag inside your voice file, drag your own music file in to the same window. You’ll find that you have 2 separate “tracks” within the window.

After you have imported your own music and voice tracks, choose the music file track, then while using “Time Shift” tool, drag the background music enough where you would like it to play. When the music reaches the right time inside your podcast, you might want to make use of the effects menu to fade the background music in or out, as well as turn lower the gain so the music does not over power the voice.

If you want music track in the “intro” but additionally in the “outro” just import the background music track again, put it in the finish from the voice file and do this again from step three.

I suggest maintaining your music intro to no more than 20 seconds. I would recommend a ten second “pure music” intro, adopted by about ten seconds individuals speaking over your own music track because the music track fades out. Around the “outro” you are able to most likely go longer, most likely thirty seconds approximately, but nonetheless no more than ten seconds price of you speaking within the music track because it fades in.
