Access your settings

You can access App Preferences by hovering over the gear icon or Settings tab in the left navigation of your dashboard.

App Preferences

  1. This allows you to choose to use either the Standard or the newest Audio editor in Alitu. The new editor has all the latest features including the ability to use your mouse to zoom into the episodes and zoom out quicker than our standard editor.

  2. 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.

  3. This setting allows you to choose how Alitu will clean up your audio the next you upload a file or record something on the platform. If you ever have trouble with more things being silenced in your audio than you wanted, visit this setting and remove the check to turn off the background noise+ feature. See our recording FAQ's for more info.
    You can also remove breath sounds, you must have the Background Noise setting ticked to use the breath removal. Make sure both boxes are ticked.

  4. 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.

Default Intro & Outro

This is where you can set your default Intro & Outro, so that every episode you create has the your default music/theme.

Podcast Hosting

In here you can turn on Alitu Hosting or link with an external host.


Transcription Language

Set your default transcription language output. It is best to do this as our transcription service can only auto-detect English, Dutch, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese. If you speak a language other than this then select your default. Further details can be found in our transcription article.

You can also monitor your transcription usage. Editing with text and creating a transcript at the publish page will go towards your transcription usage.
