This image shows my current editing process for a podcast in Ardour (will link the final piece in “Made with Ardour” once it’s done). I quite like this workflow, so I thought I might share it with anybody else here, interested in “sound montage”/narrative podcasting.
I’ve been asking for help to get this workflow going in this forum, and the kind help of many here has been great.
I now import my tape (usually circa 2 hrs a piece) directly to sources-list rename them, drop them in as new tracks, use range-mode to find the gems (marker a little ahead and a little after, to predict any later needs when editing) and then I select “bounce to source list with out processing”. I then name the tracks and sort my sources list by naming/renaming the various bounced regions and clicking “name” in the top bar of the list-viewer. This way clips like “interview_1 topic_1” will be near “interview_1_topic_1a” to later drop back in the tracks.
Did I mention how much I just keep loving this DAW more and more??
