Before you can set up your podcast, you'll need to record audio and create an episode. Tap the big red record button to get to all of Anchor's creation tools, and record your audio.
To start recording after you tap the red ‘Record’ button, you can hold your phone up to your ear like you’re jumping on a phone call and the recording will start immediately! When you’re done recording audio, just move the phone away from your ear.
If you don’t wish to use ‘telephone mode’ to record, you can tap and hold the red ‘Record’ button manually and even slide your finger up to keep recording. Tap the record button again at that point to stop the recording.
From here you can preview your recording, add a background track, as well as save the recording to an episode.
To save the recording:
- Tap ‘Save’
- Choose with episode to add the recording to, by tapping the ‘gear’ icon
- Title the segment (make sure the title is clear so you know what it is when accessing it later)
- Then tap ‘Add recording to episode’
If you wish to revisit the recording at a later time, you can tap ‘Undo’. You then have some options:
- Delete the recording entirely
- Save the recording as a draft if you wish to access it later
Remember you can always access and rearrange your segments from saved episodes as well as drafts from your ‘Profile’ tab.
