The station has taken the opportunity of a studio revamp to go digital.
Broadcast audio specialists Telos Alliance has launched OmniaTools Podcast Audio Processing Software — an enterprise-class, Windows-based toolset for podcasters searching for listenable audio with a consistently prominent sound.
As more audio is produced remotely and consumed on-demand, the challenge of consistent audio levels is becoming even greater; it is probably the number-one complaint of podcast listeners. Telos says OmniaTools allows podcasters to automatically manage loudness levels and create a unique signature sound on podcasts and other on-demand content, helping them stand out, brand, and keep audiences engaged.
“If you care about your podcast content getting through to the listener, you should care about sound quality. Poor-quality sound is fatiguing and creates the risk of listeners tuning out. Like a dirty windshield, compromised audio quality obscures the sonic landscape. Details get lost, speech can be more difficult to comprehend, and content can suffer as a result,” says Marty Sacks, executive VP of sales, support, and marketing at Telos Alliance. “OmniaTools makes podcast and other on-demand audio more listenable, less fatiguing, and more consistent.”
A feature that will especially appeal to new podcasters is the ability to simply drop audio files into a watch folder; OmniaTools then creates a new, improved version, saving time by processing large numbers of audio files quickly and automatically.
OmniaTools includes APTO loudness processing, file-based Omnia.9 processing, hot folder or API-driven processing, file-type auto-detect, and clearly labeled, proven presets for out-of-the-box functionality.
