The most easy way to bounce a part of a track (or an arrangement) is to use the punch range. Set the punch in at the start and the punch out at the end (“where the track is supposed to end”) and press Alt+B in the Master track. Now select Export as sound file from the File menu.
Always delete the old bounce clip in the Master track before bounce again with Alt+B.
Alternatively, you can bounce the whole arrangement (pressing B) and then select only the part you want to export.
– Right click on the Bounce slot in the Master track and deselect Hide track lane.
– Double click on the bounce clip to open the audio editor.
– Select the part to export and choose Export selection as sound file.
Yes, they are stored in the ram. Take a look at the Windows Task Manager during the recording session. The amount of ram used by Podium increases very quickly.
Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S combo saves all changes in the project, even the audio edits like the bounced and recorded tracks. You can find these files in the project folder.
You could try Voicemeeter:
I never used it, so I don’t know how (and if) it works.
Happy New Year to all forum members and Podium users!
If I’m not wrong, Podium by default routes the audio input to the audio output to allow the user to listen what he’s recording. To disable the audio monitoring click on the “x” near the audio input slot (something like “Audio Input 1+2”).
I remember this plugin. I tried it a few years ago.
Open the plugin window (UI) and select MIDI (STOP – RUN – SYNC – MIDI).
Now the drum machine can be used as a MIDI instrument. Create a MIDI clip/sequence in the Podium sequencer and play it. That’s all. You don’t need to record nothing. If you want, you can bounce the track to create an audio clip.
As pointed by AOS74 and kingtubby the best way to use a vst is to play it like a real instrument. So, you have to create a midi track, create a midi sequence/clip and play it. You can also bounce the sequence to create an audio file.
Anyway, to record the audio output in Podium you have to configure your audio device.
If you use only the pc audio card, try the following steps. If you use an external audio device you should see the user manual to configure it.
– right click on the speaker icon on your Windows taskbar and select Recording devices;
– right click on the list and check Show disconnected devices and Show disabled devices;
– if Stereo Mix is present right click on it and select Enable;
– set it as Predefined device;
– double click on it and go to the Levels tab: set the level (important: this is the input level for Podium recording);
– add a new track in the sequencer and in the input slot select Audio In 1+2;
– click the “x” on the right to disable the input monitoring to avoid the loop of audio signal;
– arm the track for recording (“R” button in the track header) and press the record button;
– finally, press play to start the recording.
Now, if you play the vst drum machine, you should see the waveform progress in the sequencer.
If you want to record from the microphone, you have to set it as predefined device again.
I made some tests and here’s the result:
The first track is the original track with a effect applied.
The second track contains the bounced audio of the first track (Move Bounced Audio to New Track).
In the third track I have imported the audio file previously saved from the first track (Export Bounced Audio to Sound File).
As you can see, the levels of the three tracks are the same (peak and RMS).
I export my tracks to sound files
Do you export each track or only the master track?
The Export to Sound File… option from the File menu, exports the master track.
In the picture above, the level of master track is lower than the others. If you export it, the level of audio file will decrease.
There are several ways to assign a plugin (effect) to a track, try these:
– from the Inspector panel, in the Device section, simply double click on a plugin in the list or drag & drop a plugin to the track.
– from the sequencer, click on the “+” sign in the track effects rack, you should see your plugins list displayed.
Hi, after many tests (and crashes…) finally I’ve got Podium working on Linux.
Here’s the instructions for a 32 bit Xubuntu Linux. It’s the result of my personal experience, so for other cases some steps might be different.
I experienced many crashes at the Podium startup and at the audio/MIDI setup. As Zynewave suggests, deleting the Podium.ini file allows to restart the application and try again. Also, in WINE, I recommend to set the Windows XP compatibility.
Remark: do not click on the Driver setup… button in the audio setup tab otherwise Podium will crash!
The video does not cover the installation process.
1) Install WINE:
2) Add the KX Studio repositories:
– open the terminal and type: sudo apt-get update
3) Install the jackd and cadence packages:
– with the teminal: sudo apt-get install jackd cadence
– with the Ubuntu Software Center: in the search box type jackd and install it (repeat this step for cadence).
4) Install WineASIO:
– with the teminal: sudo apt-get install wineasio
– with the Ubuntu Software Center: in the search box type wineasio and install it.
– after the installation, open the terminal and type: regsvr32 wineasio
5) Add your user to the audio group:
– go to: settings -> users settings -> manage groups; (or something like that…)
– select the audio group in the list and click Properties;
– check the box of your user in the Group members list.
6) Log out and log in again.
7) Install Podium: simply, double click on the installer like on Windows.
JACK audio server configuration
1) Start Cadence: Ubuntu “start” menu -> multimedia -> cadence
2) click on Configure:
– select your audio card/interface;
– select a driver (ALSA is the most commom), sample rate, buffer size and so on.
3) back to the System tab:
– check the box Auto start JACK at login;
– verify that your user is in the audio group;
– verify that JACK is currently running;
– JACK Bridges: useful for non-jack applications such as browser and media player. If there is only JACK and ALSA installed on your system, skip this step.
– Bridges Type: ALSA -> PulseAudio -> JACK
– in the PulseAudio slot, if present, check the box Auto start at login.
4) Tweaks tab:
– select WineASIO in the list: choose your settings (n° of input/output, buffersize);
– check the box Auto start server and close the dialog.
5) log out and log in again.
Now, JACK should be running and PulseAudio should be running and bridged to JACK.
Finally, I suggest to disable the KX Studio repositories to avoid conflicts with the standard Ubuntu repositories.
Try to move all events/song by one or two bars and then bounce.
To add a audio/MIDI file to Podium, drag & drop the file from Windows Explorer to Podium sequencer.
I assume that “Add voice over” means… record your voice in a new track. 😉
Quick setup for recording.
– Setup -> Audio/MIDI -> Audio -> select the audio driver, the audio interface and the sample rate;
– Setup -> Preferences -> Engine -> select the sound file format and the bit resolution;
– Project -> New Project -> Create project;
– Add a new track (double click in the empty area under the last track);
– Drop down the “Input” box to select the recording source: Audio Inputs -> Audio In 1+2 (stereo input);
– Click on the “X” button near the Input box to disable audio input monitoring (the X will become yellow);
– Arm the track for recording (R button in the track header, it will become red);
– Press the Record button in the transport panel;
– When you are ready, press the space bar to start/stop the recording.
To export the arrangement: File -> Export to Sound File.
Podium will render the audio in all not muted tracks and will prompt you to save it.
If you mean tempo changes like an automation curve… No, you can’t.
Now you can easily save the bounced audio. In this way you keep the parts separated for future mix process.
This is my alternative to create a unique cropped copy of segments. I know, it’s a bit convoluted. Check the time needed to save the file on disk. It should be less than before.
If you don’t need to edit the original mix in the future, you may share it among all the songs. In this way you don’t have to create unique copies.
