I prefer encoding my podcasts in CBR, stereo/mono, in high quality. VBR can lead to lower quality, and larger file sizes. However, in the end, it doesn’t matter a whole lot. Saturation comes from the analog days, and I still love it. I use saturation in all of my podcasts. It adds punch, and power to vocals. Digital recordings can often sound dead, and lifeless. Use saturation to bing them to life. In this episode I give specific plugin recommendations for saturation. I also suggest that you host your own files, even if that means hosting them on a file server different than the server used to host the website for your podcast.
