Ubercaster: The Final Word in Mac OS X Podcast Tools?

Published November 25th, 2006

Ãœbercaster: Podcasting, appealingly easy!

Ubercaster Podcasting SoftwareOriginally downloaded 11/24/06. Well, it never fails… compile a list of podcast tools and review and rate each one, and no sooner are you done than a new one comes out of the blogosphere. In this case, Ubercaster would rank as the most expensive of the tools I reviewed in my November 2006 article, at $80 (you can get it for $70 during the beta period going on now), and it appears quite different from those by emphasizing the actual creative tasks involved in making your audio file, rather than the mechanics of publishing your podcast and creating the RSS feed. In that way, it’s similar to the role GarageBand plays in the podcast world today. Since that functionality is irrelevant to my particular requirements (since my audio files are mp3 “snippets” of tunes from the Classic 45s inventory rather than spoken narratives or narrated music… as was my first podcast), I don’t think I’m going to get personally excited by Ubercaster, but I am curious to see how it would handle the actual podcasting functions I require.

Update 4/21/07. Ubercaster recently came out of beta testing, so I’ve downloaded the version 1.0 product now.

Version as tested: 1.0.1.
