How to record a solo recording

You can record your podcast intro, ads, or even a full-length monologue episode using the built-in recorder feature in the app. While remote recordings require access to a computer to start them, you can fire up a solo recording in the app on your own, no matter where you are.

  2. Click “Record” in the bottom center

  3. Grant access to your microphone

  4. Click “Start” to begin recording

  5. Record with AirPods or a mobile lav mic like the SmartLav+ (plus this iPhone adapter) for better sound quality.

  6. Click stop recording to end your monologue recording

  7. Give your recording a name, preview it, and click “Save to my library” or delete

  2. Click on your show name in the top left corner

  3. Click “Library” to access all of your recordings
