What students are saying:

The ability to come back to the material after finishing the program has been awesome. Whenever I need a refresher I can login and rewatch a video, or chat with an instructor.

The live one-on-one sessions were indispensable. Every question was answered, in detail and while being shown. I wasn't ever told how to do something, I was shown and explained.
David G.
I would have quit podcasting if I hadn't found this program. It used to take me days to finish editing my podcast episodes, now it only takes a couple of hours, and the results are great.

Once you know what you're doing, you'll never again struggle to make your podcast audio sound good.

Tired of spending hours tweaking settings, adjusting levels, and doing everything you can to get rid of that "weird sound" in your podcast audio, just to end up with a finished product you didn't like or couldn't decide whether was better or worse than when you started? Maybe you're spending so much time trying to get it right that you're putting off other things in your life and causing tension in your home or at your office. Maybe it's getting to be so frustrating that you're thinking about quitting podcasting all together... 

I get it, because I've been there too.

My name is Tanner Campbell and I've been a private podcaster since 2010, a professional Podcast Editor & Engineer since 2015, and am the owner of New England's first commercial podcast recording studio The Portland Pod.  I've created multiple successful podcasts, built a broadcast network from the ground up, taught over 400 students in my Creating a Podcast: Concept to Launch course, have assisted dozens of businesses in planning and launching new branded podcasts, and have helped numerous authors to create their audio books. But way before all that, I was a 27-year-old guy who didn't know anything about podcasting or editing audio. More on that in a minute.

Are you constantly asking, "What am I doing wrong? How does everyone else's audio sound so good while mine always sounds like crap?"

If so, I did too. I get it. Maybe you've spent hundreds of hours watching YouTube tutorials, reading how-to blogs, taking advice from other podcasters and podcast editors in dozens of Facebook groups, and investing way too much of your limited free time into trying to get better... but you're still struggling.

Eventually you may even ask yourself, "Am I just not smart enough to figure this out?"

I don't blame you if you've been there, I've been there too. When I first got started, there were times I felt so stupid and incompetent I wanted to crawl under a rock. But I wasn't stupid, and neither are you, I just didn't have anyone to teach me, or to spend time explaining things to me in a way I could understand. I had to do that on my own, by trial and error. It sucked, and it took forever.

No one wants to struggle this hard to learn... and that's why I started this program.

The #1 reason most people struggle to create high quality audio is that they're so concerned with (and stressed about) the end result, that they invest almost no time into developing an understanding of process.

My success as a podcast editor came only after I learned that good audio is the result of a process, that this process has steps, and that each step has to be learned and mastered. Only after I mastered the steps, could I follow the process. Only after I could follow the process, could I produce the results I wanted.

And this is how it will be for you, too.

Creating high quality audio isn't magic. It's the result of a technical process that you can absolutely learn and apply to create great sounding podcast audio all on your own. No magician's hat (or cape) required.

I know what you're thinking, "Easy for you to say, you've been doing this for 10-years."

Look, like I said before, I sucked in the beginning. I bet it was two years before I figured out how to set my gain knobs properly! I started in 2010, right? I didn't understand compression until 2015. 2015! It took me five years to figure out a fundamental mixing and mastering element like compression!

It took me half a decade to be able to call myself "good" - before I could enter the audio industry as a freelance podcast editor. By the time I could sell my services to clients like Remax, Dell, Otelco, or MEMIC, I had invested 8-years of my life to podcast editing. So, if I am sure of anything, it is this:

If I had someone to teach me back then, to properly educate me on audio engineering, I could have cut those 8-years down to 1-year, I have no doubt. Because the truth is, once someone sits you down, shows you the process, and explains it so you can truly grasp and understand it, the rest of it is just repetition and practice

This program is designed to get you to the repetition and practice phase in 30-days instead of 8-years.  That's why I've created it, and that's why I'm here.

FAQs

Who is this class for

Beginner to novice level podcasters and podcast editors who are looking to become better at editing and engineering audio.

Who is this class not for?

If you're not serious about learning the steps behind the process, this class is not for you. I am not providing 60-second "quick tip" lessons in this course, if that's what you're looking for, it's not here.

Do I need any special software or tools to take this course?

You'll need a computer and you'll need a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). The rest of it will be provided as part of the program. This includes Ozone 9 Advanced and RX 7 Standard.

Do I get to keep the Izotope Products?

Are you sitting down? Good. Yes, you get to keep them. Yes, as in "forever." No, I'm not kidding. I'm not going to train you on these things just to send you out into the world without them. What kind of guy do you take me for?

Do I need a good computer to take this course?

Not necessarily. Most DAWs suggest a minimum of 16GB of RAM, but 8GB will work. If your computer experiences a lot of strain working in something like Pro Tools, Studio One, or Logic Pro, you can always fall back to Audacity (whose system requirements are significantly lower than other DAWs)

Can I use Audacity?

You sure can. The learning experience will be slightly different for you since Audacity cannot process VSTs in real-time, but you'll still learn the same things as everyone else. Audacity just slows your workflow down a bit.

Can I still access the program after I graduate?

All students have lifetime access to the program's material, and updates will be made as needed. This is a living program, and when students ask for changes or add-ons, I respond by providing them (if I feel they bring value to the program).
