    Not that I plan to do a podcast… but this software is ALMOST really really cool. It’s layout and functionality are 100xs better than CastEasy (which needs to ditch the transitions in favor of speed).. and it looks quite useful.

    My only beef with these various podcast softwares is their lack of audio recording/editing. Without that it’s largely an xml making utility/ organizational tool. The built in podcast enhancing features ARE quite nice. If it incorporated some minimal record functionality and multitracking it would be considered a complete podcasting solution…. until then it’s just a really nicely polished helper app.

    Good pick macZot, i was hoping this one would show up. =P This is in my mind the best podcasting suite out there.

    n0mmo – I would rather have a really good app that does one thing well than a mediocre app that that does a bunch of things half-assed. Garageband comes pre-loaded on every new Mac, so “minimal record functionality and multitracking” is already available to most users, as is video editing/compression in the form of iMovie. Or should Podcast Maker have that too?

    Podcast Maker is awesome. I am actually quoted on the first page. Cool! But yet. This program is amazing – short for recording/editing audio. If visit the website’s blog you will see they are going to go into beta testing some sort of Audio software. This is only a good sign. Encourage you all to get it if you are podcasting and/or tell someone that you know who is podcasting.

    Apparently comments are deleted from time to time. I wrote a longish responce to ‘geekdreams’ this morning… nothing inflamatory, giving the software it’s due props while pointing out why I felt it’d be even better for a company to market a full fledged podcast production studio… and now it’s gone.

    Basically what I said boils down to this:
    A full fledged podcast creation tool would be quite welcome and that I don’t understand why geekdreams feels the need to attack a request for a more full feature set to a software package.

  6. n0mmo Says:

    hmm… now my comment has returned… weird.

  7. geekdreams Says:

    Sorry, I wasn’t really attacking your request, I just don’t see the point of adding features that are better handled by a dedicated app.

    Personally, I wouldn’t use the audio-recording functionality if it did exist, because I’m using PM for a video-only podcast. As such, I wouldn’t want to pay more for these features, even though it took Andy more time to develop them. He would either have to keep the price the same and eat the cost of development, or raise the price and lose potential sales – never an easy call to make.

    Anyway, I think the OS X philosophy encourages developers to “do one thing well” rather than “be all things to all people.” Things like drag-and-drop support for all apps, the Services menu, and the Core* APIs make it relatively easy for disparate apps to work together in harmony.

    This is a really excellent program. Thanks for introducing it to me. I’m about to roll out a professional podcast, and have been searching for the perfect app. I think I’ve found it.

    How do I buy this through MacZot, I see no buy button.
