Best Practices

  1. Audio file: You can upload nearly any file type to Buzzsprout, but you’ll have the best results with a WAV file or a high-quality MP3 file. Buzzsprout can automatically make your audio sound better by turning on Magic Mastering. This is an extra fee but it sounds great and cuts out a ton of editing for you!
  2. Editing: Spending a bit of time to get the best-sounding recording will drastically improve the final audio file. Check out our advice on recording, including our recommended podcast equipment and software.
  3. Proofread: You can always edit the episode details, but some people will download your new episode within minutes of you clicking publish, so you’ll want to check for any spelling errors before publishing.
