Podcasting with ScreenFlow on Mac

Howdy Folks,


I have been using screenflow to capture desktop stuff, but was continuing to use the old GarageBand 6.0.5 software because of the audio ducking feature (which was removed from the new GarageBand). Now that ScreenFlow 8 can do ducking, I am migrating over to using it as my podcasting software.


I wanted to see if anyone had come up with an optimal setup for podcasting with Screenflow. I want to get the best quality possible and figured others might have already covered this ground.

  • It certainly would be interesting to hear what users have to say.

  • CraigS Yeah, I was poking around yesterday and the ability to customize presets seemed pretty sparse... or maybe I am just not seeing the right tool to get it don.

  • In chapter 2 of my ScreenFlow Essential Training course published on LinkedIn Learning and Lynda.com there is a movie on Multi-Mic recording. In there I show you how to use the build in Audio Midi app to create a custom multichannel mic input so you can record a podcast show with multiple people all having their own USB mic plugged into a single mac. ScreenFlow can keep each mic separated into its own channel as I show in the movie. Other than that, make sure your mic is properly calibrated so you have the right input levels. In a later chapter I show how to use the Ducking feature. Hope that helps.

  • Chris Mattia Good tip especially since aspects of Apple's Audio Midi Setup is not well understood.
