Simpler Podcasting Setup

I ran across a reference to this post in the Rogue Amoeba blog that describes how to use Audio Hijack Pro to podcast in a number of scenarios. It sure does seem a lot simpler than what I’m doing. I downloaded the trial version and will check it out.

It seems like I could use this to do an entirely real-time show that automatically saves to the 96 kbps MP3 when it is done. My no-edit shows still require an hour or two of post-production, so the idea of just doing the music bed and everything live and have the show ready to publish 10 seconds after I stop is downright attractive. If I go this route though, it really has to be zero edits whatsoever because editing out bits of my talking with the music bed already there would lead to weird skips that would sound like ass. Maybe that is a feature, not a bug. Hmmm…..

The tricky part is figuring out what app to play the music bed with. I will want to be using Quicktime to play things I am excerpting, and iTunes to play the songs. I’ll need a third app for the music bed, unless I put the theme on my Shuffle and play it in through the iMic. Actually, that’s crazy enough to work and would give me a physical control I could use to turn it up and down. This is getting more and more interesting as I think about it.
