Video: Editing Podcasts with Ferrite and Apple Pencil - Six Colors

Jason Snell writing for Six Colors:

Since people are often curious about just how using the Apple Pencil to edit a podcast works, I thought I’d make a video to show you how I do it. (I had to suspend a camera above my desk to get some shots of what my hands are doing with the Apple Pencil.)

Along the way, I also mention a bunch of different Ferrite features and settings, and also discuss my general editing process (which is more or less the same, even if I’m using Logic Pro on a Mac).

If you’re a podcast editor, I hope this video gives you some ideas and inspiration.

John Voorhees from MacStories:

What struck me most about Snell’s video is how natural direct manipulation of multiple audio tracks looks. I’ve always done all of my podcast editing on a Mac with Logic Pro X, but after watching Snell edit an episode with multiple guests, I look forward to trying this myself.

I’m a weird one when it comes to podcast editing because I use Hindenburg on my Mac. That said, I’ve edited the last few podcasts of A Slab of Glass with Ferrite on my 10.2” iPad and absolutely loved it.

Watching Snell do his magic makes me want to keep using Ferrite and make it my main podcast editing software for everything.

I’m going to dig deeper into the settings and see what other things I can change to improve my editing workflow.
