Our presets have proven to be time saving and quality improving tool for many podcast producers and independent podcasters. Those presets have been created based on our own podcast production experience over the last decade so that you can create fantastic sounding episodes time and time again without putting hours of post production time.

Those presets aim to provide you with professional tools and techniques that you can apply to your post production process. They are for anyone using Adobe Audition CC 2019 (or higher) in their process (we believe this is the best choice for those taking audio recording and podcast production seriously).

You can find here detailed specs for the Pro-Podcast Presets v2.0. We work continuously with the preset users to improve them. We ask for feedback and take it on board with further releases. All minor updates (2.x) will be provided free of charge to those purchasing the presets.

Utilising Adobe Audition Powers
  • New: Designed from the ground up using only native Adobe Audition effects.
  • New: Colour scheme to fit Adobe Audition CC 2019 and beyond.
  • New: Parametric Equalizer greatly improved for dialogue tracks. Tested on hundreds of different podcasts to determine optimal EQ settings.
  • New: High Pass filter added to Parametric Equalizer to reduce bass rumble noises. This removes the need for Scientific Filter and optimises the effects rack for dialogue.
  • New: DeEsser optimised to catch more sibilance and leave everything else intact.
  • New: 2 different modes. [SHIFT] + [1] for simple podcast production. [SHIFT] + [2] for noise fixing mode revealing 3 new tracks. Taking full advantage of effects such as DeNoise and DeReverb to fix issues such as room echo, fan noise and room noise.
Detailed and Intelligent Optimisation of Your Workflow
  • New: Dynamics Processing removed and replaced with the new Dynamics effect (introduced in Adobe Audition CC 2018). Allowing for use of all the great effects: AutoGate (silence out gaps in speech), Compressor (even out the level of speech), Expander (fade down audio during gaps), Limiter (stop audio peaking).
  • New: Added DeNoise (optional) to host and guest dialogue tracks.
  • New: Added DeNoise (enabled) at low settings to remove Skype Call hiss without reducing call quality.
  • New: Parametric Equalizer and Hard Limiter added to Podcast Voices bus which will help all speech hit the same level and similar sounds.
  • New: Added Dynamics effect to a Final Mix bus which will even out any music added to a podcast.
  • New: Vocal Enhancer added to Podcast Music Track meaning dialogue can cut through music with ease no need to worry too much about audio levels.
  • New: Double Hard Limiter and light mastering added to the Master track meaning there’s no need to add any further effects after mixing down.
Included Tracks
  • Podcast Host
    The main host of the podcast should record their audio onto this track.
  • Podcast Co-Host
    If you’re hosting with a co-host it’s always great to use a second track for their audio. This is where you record your podcast co-host.
  • Podcast Guest
    If you introduce special guests to your podcast and they’re in the same room as you this is the track to use.
  • Skype Call
    This track is for Skype calls. You’ll often hear hiss or background noise on Skype calls. The latest Adobe Audition CC DeNoise effect is used subtly on this track to reduce and eliminate unwanted noise on your calls.
  • Intro & Outro
    This is the track to place your podcast intros, outros and even jingles. It’s a clean track allowing your audio branding to shine through the way it was intended to.
  • Podcast Music
    If you use music tracks or talkover music beds this track is specially designed to lower the volume, limit the peaks and add certain EQ reductions so that your voice (and that of your co-hosts and guests) can sit on top of the music with ease.
  • Podcast SFX
    A track to place SFX for your podcasts. Anything from a whoosh to a bang or canned laughter to applause. It’ll fit on this track!

Advanced tracks: 

  • Fix: Fan Noise
    Do you have a loud fan in the recording? Computer CPU working too hard or someone decided to mow the lawn while you were recording? Give this track a go for some heavy machine-learning noise reduction!
  • Fix: Room Noise
    Light room noise like an open window, distant road sounds and more can be reduced or eliminated using this track.
  • Fix: Room Echo
    Recording in a room with plenty of reverb and don’t want a cathedral style sound. Most home offices and bedrooms are not designed to be acoustically perfect. This track will fix most light room echo issues with ease.
Improvements to v1.X Features
  • Fixed: Removed Adaptive Noise Reduction effect entirely (old and clunky way of removing background noise) and replaced with the new, machine learning, noise reduction effects, available in Adobe Audition CC 2019 and beyond.
  • Fixed: Breaths and background noise were getting amplified for some users. This has been fixed by reducing the intensity of the Speech Volume Leveler and placing it first in the dialogue effects rack.
  • Fixed: Colour coding improved. Purple for dialogue. Blue for Skype. Red and pink for jingles, music and SFX. Yellow for mixing buses.
