Title:Learn Ferrite Recording Studio for Mobile Audio Recording
Instructor: Neal Augenstein, founder, iphonereporting.com and digital reporter, WTOP
With the newly released Ferrite iPhone app, users have the only tool they need to record, edit, and transmit professional-quality audio reports, features, and podcasts.
Ferrite Recording Studio is the first multi-track audio editing app designed for journalists in five years — an eternity in today’s quickly-changing digital news environment. Award-winning reporter and mobile journalism trainer Neal Augenstein — a beta tester before the app’s release — will offer step-by-step instruction and best practices for this new field reporting tool for the iPhone.
This training will show how to record interviews and reporter tracks and how to select, finely edit, and rearrange soundbites. You’ll also learn how to bring listeners to the scene with natural and ambient sound, and how to share content with a newsroom or the world.
The app is free to download for iPhones. Neal will review the paid upgrades and what they do.
What you’ll learn from this training:
- How to ensure clear audio recording with the touch of a button
- Built-in microphone or handheld? Choosing the right one for the job
- Why ambient sound is the most important aspect of an audio report
- Accessories and hacks to improve the quality of your Ferrite reports
Who should take this training?
- Journalists for any medium who want to use cutting-edge audio recording technologies and strategies to increase the audiences on their legacy platforms
- Public relations and public information professionals looking to provide quality audio content that will catch the attention of news organizations and the public
- Students, including digital natives, who want to perfect their professional newsgathering skills and impress potential employers
- Anyone — like Neal — who has been using the long-ignored Voddio multitrack editing app, but has been searching (and waiting) for a robust, stable alternative
