Anchor makes it super easy to record from your phone — it happens to have a great microphone built in, and it’s always there when inspiration strikes.

That said, if you want to take your recording to the next level, here are some tips from our in-house production team that can help whether or not you have a fancy microphone!

Recording Tips from Anchor’s Production Team

  • If you want to reduce background noise and echoes, try recording in a quiet room with soft things like carpets, pillows, blankets, or couches. Fun fact: lots of podcasters record in their closets!
  • When you’re recording on mobile, hold it up to your ear like you would speak on the phone. That’ll put the mic close to your mouth and take advantage of your phone’s built-in noise canceling features.

  • If you want a standalone mic, there are lots of inexpensive USB microphones available. You can plug them into your computer and record straight into anchor.fm (or upload pre-recorded audio that you record with another app). Many of these mics will even work with your phone, so you can also use Anchor to record from an external mic right into the app.

  • Rather than trying to make your first episodes perfect, just go for it and listen for things you want to improve next time!
