Does Alitu do the editing for me?

Alitu does NOT do complex editing, like removing silences, ums and ahs, or mistakes.

But, Alitu doesSOME types of editing for you automatically, and offers a tool for you to easily do the OTHER types of edits yourself.

The editing Alitu does automatically is joining all the files together, and adding your music. So, if you upload 3 recordings (say, a spoken intro, an interview, and a listener recording) Alitu edits them all together for you, automatically, and puts your theme music on the start and end.

The editing you’ll do yourself with Alitu’s editing tool, is removing editing mistakes, coughs, silences, etc. Our custom podcast editor tool makes it super-easy to do this, right inside Alitu. Using that, you can highlight parts you want to remove, in any recording, and we’ll remove them for you.

Does Alitu do recording too?

Yes, Alitu has a tool to allow you to record right into the App from your computer.

This is for solo recordings only – usually you, a USB mic, and your computer – so you’ll want to record your interviews or conversions elsewhere. Find the best recording tools here.

The main use for this is to record short intros and outros, to bookend your main content, or to record short annoucements or adverts to include in your show.

Because the recorder works right in your browser, I wouldn’t recommend recording long clips in this way. You know browsers, they have a tendency to crash, especially when they work with big audio files! If you’re going longer than 5 to 10 minutes, better to record into your phone, or onto your PC, then upload that file to us.

What can Alitu do that Audacity can't?

Audacity is designed to give you ALL the editing and processing features you might need, but doesn’t give you any automation or assistance in using them.

The main benefit of Alitu is that we automate a whole lot of the process – doing the processing for you, no experience required.

Alitu also makes the editing part easy with a custom designed interface for podcasters.

It can take hours or days to learn Audacity, and you have to learn WHAT processes you need and HOW to apply them. But, Alitu takes that hassle away from you and does it for you.

How does Alitu help with publishing?

Alitu can also publish your episode right to your podcast hosting service, to save you logging in and uploading it.

Right now we link with Libsyn, Blubrry, Buzzsprout, Spreaker & Podean, so you can publish to all of them automatically. We’re adding new services all the time, too, so just let us know who you want us to include next!

And, if you don’t have a podcast host yet, make sure to check out a full rundown of the best podcast hosting options here.

What parts of podcasting does Alitu automate?

Here’s what Alitu's podcasting tools can take care of automatically for you:

  • Converting your files (we take audio recordings from any source!)
  • Levelling (getting the volume right)
  • Noise reduction – removing regular background noise
  • Hum reduction – removing power related hums
  • Adding theme music at the start and end of your show
  • Fading/transitioning from music to voice and vice-versa
  • Joining together multiple recordings into one episode
  • Exporting your episode to mp3 with the right settings
  • Loudness – ensuring a standard export volume
  • Adding id3 tags to your episode
  • Publishing direct to certain podcast hosts

Does Alitu include podcast hosting?

No, we’re not a podcast hosting company – we prefer to leave that to those that already do that brilliantly. And, to make things easy for you, we link directly to a number of the top hosting companies so you can publish direct to your host from Alitu, without having to download > login > upload elsewhere!

How does Alitu add branding?

Branding, for most podcasts, means a theme tune. That can be just a bit of music you play at the start and the end of your show, or it could be a professionally produced segment, tailored to the start and end, with a voiceover, music and effects. Either way, upload your branding to Alitu and we can add your intro and outro themes automatically, every time.

We also have a “Theme Music Creator” tool which helps you put together your own custom intro and outro. It’ll combine a voice clip and some music for you, creating a pro sounding theme, just for your show.

What does Alitu do to clean up my audio?

Good question! Alitu partners with Auphonic to offer the best automated audio processing on the market, right now. Here’s what we do to make sure your audio sounds as good as it can be:

  • File conversions: we can take just about any audio format possible, and turn it into podcast-compatible files
  • Volume levelling: evening out the volume throughout your whole show, between multiple speakers, for easy listening
  • Noise reduction: automatically removing lots of regular background noise, like fans, air con, hiss, etc.
  • Hum reduction: removing the hum commonly caused by power lines or other electrical interference

Let Alitu do the heavy lifting for you.

Spend less time editing and more time creating your podcast.
