Everyone has a podcast workflow that works for them. The following is a short guide as to how you can get started creating podcasts with Alitu. While this workflow is a suggestion, Alitu is flexible enough to fit you and your process.
Step 1: Creating an Episode
To create an episode you need to add a new episode, this is the basic starting point of how you assemble an episode (uploading audio or recording in Alitu) and edit. You can create a new episode by clicking the plus sign in the left nav bar or in the upper right corner of the screen as shown below.
When creating a new episode you will be asked to enter details of the episode such as episode name, host name, and season/episode number. Once you've entered this information, press "Save Details".
Step 2: Adding or Uploading Audio
You can then upload or record your audio.
Step 3: Building your Episode
In the "Episode Builder" you can:
Add an intro and outro
Add further audio files or directly record more audio
Insert transitions between audio and music files
Edit your audio
Edit or update your episode details.
The episode builder allows you to drag and drop each block to create the perfect order for your episode. This is useful if you have uploaded and recorded multiple files in one episode.
Step 4: Editing your Audio
You will edit your audio in the episode builder. Each "card" in your episode will have an edit button. Pressing this will take you to our audio editor. Alitu allows you to edit your audio via "waveform" editing or via transcription "text-based" editing.
Step 5: Publishing
When you have finished building your episode you can move on to publishing your episode. To do this hit the "Build my Episode" button at the bottom of the episode builder.
You are then able to access the "publish" button. In this section, you can:
Download your episode in an mp3 file
Preview your episode
Generate a transcript for your episode
Edit/update your episode details manually
Edit/update your episode using our AI-powered title and description generator
Schedule your episode to publish to your third-party host or Alitu hosting
