Can Alitu Record Also?
Yes, Alitu has a tool that enables you to record right into the App from your computer. This is for solo recordings only – usually you, a USB mic, and your computer – so you’ll want to record your interviews or conversations elsewhere. The main use for this is to record short intros and outros to bookend your main content, or to record short announcements or ads to include in your show. Because the recorder works right in your browser, we wouldn’t recommend recording long clips using t
What Parts of Podcasting Do You Automate?

What is bitrate and should I care?
What's a bitrate...? Bitrate as a concept is actually pretty simple – in podcasting terms, the higher the bitrate, the higher quality your audio will sound. The common unit for audio is kilobits per second, and it just refers to how much data is stored in the audio file. The higher quality you're going for, the more data you need to store. For more information on bitrate, see this article, [What Bitrate Should I Use for a Podcast](https://www.thepodcasthost.com/editing-production/what-bit
Does Alitu Host My Podcast?
Alitu is not a podcast hosting company. We prefer to leave that to those that already do that brilliantly. And, to make things easy for you, we link directly to a number of the top hosting companies so you can publish direct to your host from Alitu, without having to download > login > upload elsewhere! Check out our hosting recommendations here: [Best Podcast Hosting](https://www.thepodcasthost.com/websites-hosti
What audio format should I use?
We are often asked what the 'best' audio format is to upload into Alitu. For best quality, a .wav would be the standard starting point, if possible. Wav files are higher quality, so always upload a .wav if you can. MP3s are compressed files which means their file size is reduced by removing some of the detail. They still sound great, so it's fine to use them if that's what you have available. Please reach out using the 'chat with us' or 'send us an email' boxes at the bottom of thi
How Do You Record a Call with More than 1 Person in Alitu?
Alitu doesn’t have a group calling feature yet, it's still in beta testing at the moment. In the meantime, we have some good partners that do that really well! See Ringr, for example. But… Alitu pairs really well with a call recording or group recording tool, to handle the audio processing that follows that. So, once you’ve recorded your group, you can upload that audio to us, and we’ll make it all sound great, add your theme music and any other clips you like, then
Does Alitu Publish my episodes to Spotify, etc.?
Your podcast host will submit your episodes to the directories for you. Your podcast host will create and manage your RSS feed for you. The RSS feed is what the directories use to keep your show listing up-to-date. Alitu helps prepare your final episode and then you publish the file to your podcast host. Please reach out using the 'chat with us' or 'send us an email' boxes at the bottom of this page if you have any questions about using Alitu. We're happy to help!

What is the Waveform Setting & How Does it Affect Editing?
The waveform setting lets you change how you see the audio wave in the podcast editor. The pro waveform shows a little more detail, while the simple waveform just makes things a little... simpler 😊 Your Pro Waveform looks like this - very much like a traditional audio editor: Your Simple Waveform looks like this - a more simple and modern style: !(https://storage.crisp.chat/use
What Does Alitu Do That Audacity Can't?
Alitu and Audacity are very different editing solutions. Audacity is designed to give you ALL the editing and processing features you might need, but doesn’t give you any automation or assistance in using them. The main benefit of Alitu is that we automate a lot of the editing process – doing the processing for you, no experience required. Alitu also makes the editing part easy with a custom-designed interface for podcasters. It can take hours or days to learn Audacity, and you have t

How Can I Add Branding to My Podcast?
Branding, for most podcasts, means theme music. That can be just a bit of music you play at the start and the end of your show, or it could be a professionally produced segment, tailored to the start and end, with a voiceover, music and effects. Either way, upload your branding music to Alitu and we can add your intro and outro themes automatically, every time. Please reach out using the 'chat with us' or 'send us an email' boxes at the bottom of this page if you have any questions a
Do You Do the Editing For Me?
Alitu is an automated solution. Alitu does NOT automatically do complex editing like removing silences, ums and ahs, or mistakes. But, our software does SOME types of editing for you automatically, and we offer a tool for you to easily do the OTHER types of edits yourself. The editing we do automatically is joining all the files together, and adding your music. So, if you upload 3 recordings (for example, a spoken intro, an interview, and a listener recording) we’ll edit them all t
