Edit as much or as little as needed with multiple editing options. Integrate with your favorite editing software to create great sounding podcasts your listeners will love.

Headphones are not required, but we highly recommend them to eliminate the chance for echo. External mics are not needed, but recommended as well.
SquadCast records 48 kHz sample rate and 16-bit depth audio files in wav format. Also available in mp3 format. And video records at up to 1080p at 30fps mixed with audio in mp4, and available in webm format.
We recommend a network speed range of approximately 5-10 mbps up and down. A few things to help with a slower network speed are to disable video and/or hard wire connection instead of WiFi.
The number of participants in a recording session has no impact of the recording time purchased. For example, if 3 people record 1 hour together, only 1 hour will be withdrawn from your account.
We are an independently-funded company that focuses on providing all SquadCast customers with studio-quality recordings, signature Premium Recording, and an intuitive interface without downloads, making the content creation process a breeze.
