Splashpress Media has launched Audival, a blog that serves tips, tutorials, equipment reviews, and articles about podcasting. Authored by Stefan Hedengren (more commonly known as Stiff), Audival aims “help you record and make a professional sounding podcast. [Audival] will supply you with tips and tutorials, as well as sound clips that you can use if you like to.” Audival was created with the thought that while many are interested in podcasting, the process behind actually recording audio, producing/using the music and sound clips, and putting these together, may not be as easy as it seems.
Stiff is a professional musician and engineer, and creates the original music and sound clips that are made available for use via Audival. Stiff is the man behind the Pro Tooler Blog, which is focused on tools and equipment used by the pros in producing music and audio.
The site was designed by Stiff’s brother, Thord Daniel Hedengren, former Blog Herald contributor, and who has also designed several other Splashpress Media blogs and portals including the Eatonweb Blog Directory, Jack of All Blogs, Blog Network Watch, and Blogger Jobs, and also some enhancements to the Blog Herald look, particularly the header image and links.
