What is ultraschall?

Ultraschall is the podcast tool among the digital audio workstations (DAW) - a DAW by podcasters for podcasters. As a plug-in, Ultraschall extends the DAW REAPER, which is intended for music production, and optimises it as much as possible for high-end podcasting. This includes the design, the user interface, but also a lot of new functions and tools. With each release, more useful tools are added to make podcasting even easier and more professional for you.

Why Ultraschall?

If you have never worked with REAPER or a DAW in general before, you will - as with any software - need some time at the beginning to find your way around and be able to use the software to its full extent. This may be a bit daunting at first, but the effort is worth it. Ultraschall offers many advantages compared with supposedly "simple" audio editing software such as Audacity:

  • Ultraschall is not a DAW and not an all-purpose audio weapon, but is geared precisely towards podcasting. That makes it as easy as possible for you to get started. For example, all the terminology comes from our podcast universe.
  • Ultraschall (like most DAWs) works non-destructively. This means that no information is lost during editing and your original recordings remain untouched. If you cut too much somewhere, it's easy to correct later.
  • Ultr Ultraschall records several tracks at the same time without any problems. Nothing stands in the way of recording large groups with many individual tracks.
  • The direct integration of StudioLink makes remote recordings (i.e. recordings where the other party is connected via the Internet) easier than ever before. The audio quality is indistinguishable from a local recording, provided there is a stable internet connection on both sides.
