Record and edit on Riverside: Overview

« to Riverside basics: Overview

Create a recording with remote participants in a few easy steps on Riverside. After, use Riverside's Editor to customize and export the recording or download everyone's High Quality tracks and use your preferred software.

First, Record Your Content

Gather your participants in the Riverside Studio to record a podcast episode.

Each time you start and stop the recording, Riverside creates a new recording (which Riverside calls a 'track') –– with all the participants' track files synchronized. If you plan to use one continuous track as the episode, let the Studio record the whole time without clicking Stop. You can cut parts out of the recording or combine tracks with our web Editor. If you plan to edit offline, you can start and stop recording multiple times during the session.
