Having been a quiet Alphatester of the upcoming Übercaster podcasting solution on the Mac I want to point you to the new screencasts that have been posted on the Übercaster website. And in two days the public beta will arrive and I can only recommend checking it out.
The programmers have been very responsive and hard at work at the same time in the recent weeks and I think they can be proud of their new tool. It is a very elegant approach to the problems of a private podcaster and I think they will be rather successful with it.
Here’s why I think Übercaster is cool: it works along the lines of the typical workflow: prepare, record, cut and release. This is a very intelligent approach. Also, it it integrates really well into Mac OS X and makes use of the latest and greatest features of both the UI and the Core Audio subsystem. It also makes recording of Skype, Gizmo Project and iChat conversations really easy. There is also an “insert mode” for recording which makes “adding stuff later” a breeze.
