I have been using GarageBand 6 because it was the last version that supported podcasting. However, eventually it will be abandoned and not supported. I want to move on to the latest version of the software, but don’t want to lose the podcast features of v6.
Is there a program that can add the chapter and album art metadata to an audio file after GarageBand exports it? That might be the simplest solution. Thanks!
Forecast on macOS and Ferrite on iOS are my preferred options for this.
Thanks to both of you. I downloaded and tested it. I looked at the track in QuickTime without artwork and then I edited it with Forecast to add it. When I launched it in QuickTime after adding the artwork in Forecast, it did not show the artwork as it does when it comes out of GarageBand. Could it be the format? I export from GarageBand in m4a, but I can’t seem to do that out of Forecast. Do I need the m4a format for the artwork to show in Quicktime?
Still need help figuring out why the album art isn’t showing up when I play the episode in QuickTime. It does when I insert the art using GarageBand 6, but not when I insert it using Forecast. I tried converting the mp3 to m4a format, but no go.Any thoughts on why? Could I have done it wrong in Forecast? Help!
Thinking I might want to move away from Garageband for my podcast into some sort of all-in-one solution. I am looking for something that can use templates (so I can create one for my podcast to save time) and add the album art as well. Basically another program that does what Garageband 6 does. Thoughts on Logic Pro or Adobe Audition? Something else? I need to transition this before I upgrade to Catalina. Thanks!
I know people who use all those apps, in addition to apps like Hindenberg, which starts at $95
Thanks! Do Logic Pro, Audition and Hindenberg do templates and album art? Those are the key features I am looking for. I could certainly look up the products to find out, but I would like to know from users of those products which one does it best and is the best bang for the buck.
From what I understand, recording, editing, mixing, chattering, tagging and exporting audio files is enough work for audio software so a separate artwork-related workflow is probably better even if you found some integrated option.l - and I don’t personally know of any. (Websites like 99designs and fiverr can get you cheap intl designers bidding on your requests with low-res samples to choose from then pay for final files). On the Mac if you had the talent you could easily make artwork with Pixelmator or even GIMP.
Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I can make the artwork. I just want to be able to add it to the mp3 (or m4a) file (within the audio software) before uploading it to Libsyn.
