Here's what you'll see:

Let's take a look at each one in turn, and see what they do.

Setting: Preferred Bitrate

The bitrate refers to the quality of the audio for your podcast episodes. Basically, the higher the bitrate, the higher quality your audio will be, but, also, the longer it takes to stream and download the episode. If you want to strike a balance, 96kbps is generally a good setting for the average podcast. Click here for a full article on What Bitrate Means.

Setting: Preferred Audio Editor

This allows you to choose to use either the Classic or new Waves editor in Alitu. The Waves editor allows you to use your mouse to zoom into the episodes and zooms out quicker than our classic editor.

Setting: Use Cut Music Feature

This settings allows you to set the length of the intro and outro music for your episode within the music settings. With this setting turned off, you will see see a simple editor, but with it turned on you will see the music length option:


Setting: Preferred Waveform

The waveform setting lets you change how the audio wave appears while editing in the episode builder. You can read more about this in our dedicated article on the editing waveform.

Setting: Default Intro Music

This setting controls the default intro music that will be added automatically to each new podcast episode you create. If you don't set a default intro, you can add intro music to the episode in the episode builder. You can learn more about setting your default intro/outro music here: Hot to set a Default Intro/Outro

Setting: Default Outro Music

This setting controls the default outro music that will be added automatically to each new podcast episode you create. If you don't set a default outro, you can add outro music to the episode in the episode builder.
