My initial post about Levelator was more to raise awareness about this application. As I said before, this is a brilliant concept for podcasters and audiophiles everywhere. It’s a drag and drop program that compresses, levelizes, and limits your audio, all on its own. What more can you ask for than that?
Within minutes of making that first post, Doug Kaye dropped by my blog and offered some thoughts on what I can do to make my use of it better. Ignoring the pretty cool fact that he is one of the orginal podcasters, I thought it was great that one of the main guys behind this application was quick to offer solutions on Levelator.
I have an episode of RadioZoom that I will released later today, if not tomorrow, in which I have my first venture into utilizing this program. I am very impressed with what it did to a single AIFF of nearly 38 minutes of audio that I recorded with my mic and minidisc. It was a mobile interview, and this application just cut my editing time by over fifty percent.
The quality is just as impressive. It gives you solid sound that can take hours of tweaking, depending on how precise you want your audio to be. I can get pretty picky some times, but this is an answer to that for sure.
