There's no way to edit the file which means:
- You can't cut out your gaffs. This means that you'll have to record your show over and over until you get it just right. How many times do you want to record the same thing? Even more importantly, how many times can you repeat the same thing before it sounds totally scripted?
- You can't add clips: Engaging podcasts have intros, outros, bumpers between segments and possibly even interviews. Kiss all of that goodbye when using a web studio. You get your voice and whatever you can play into the microphone along with it.
- You can't affect the file size or quality: At what bit rate and sample rate should your show be encoded at? That largely depends on the content of the episode in question. More music - higher quality; more talk - lower quality. You won't get those options using an online web studio meaning that your talk show will be over encoded or your music podcast underencoded.
Any web studios out there that address these points?
