Voicemeeter Banana is an audio streaming program that was designed for those who want to start their own podcast or stream an online show. This software has a long list of useful features that will help you get your program off the ground in no time at all. In addition to the basic recording feature, you can also add sound effects, splice clips, and alter your voice. You might need to spend a few hours familiarizing yourself with this software, but that hard work is going to pay off in the end.

Even though most computers come with default audio tools, those programs are usually very limited. You might be able to change some of the audio settings with a default app, but those who want to stream their own shows are going to need more options. Voicemeeter Banana gives you access to a virtual soundboard and mixing station, and you will be able to tweak every aspect of your audio. In addition to being a good option for podcasters, this software will also be useful if you enjoy streaming your video games through an app like Twitch.

When you first install this piece of software, you must set up all of your inputs and outputs. In most cases, your primary input is going to be your computer’s microphone. If you are streaming a video game, then your secondary input will most likely be the game itself. The output can be any piece of hardware that you have attached to your computer. That includes wired gaming headsets, computer speakers, recording devices, and Bluetooth earbuds.

You will need to master all of the program’s key features if you would like to produce high-end podcasts or digital shows. Those tools will allow you to remove background noise, alter the speed of the audio, change the pitch of your voice, and remove vocal faults such as stuttering. If you plan on streaming live audio, then you might want to spend some time testing the software out so that the settings can be perfected. You will also need to adjust the settings whenever you install a new piece of audio hardware.

Voicemeeter Banana is a powerful audio tool that is perfect for recording sound clips and streaming live programs. While this software does have a steep learning curve, it is easy to use once you have mastered the basic controls. After a few hours of tinkering, you should be able to release your first high-end podcast or digital streaming show.
