Ubercaster Podcasting App Gets Major Update

Dec 24th, 2008 | By | Category: Podcasting Software

Pleasant Software has released a major update for Ubercaster, its all-in-one podcasting solution for the Mac. The new version sports native Skype support, Amazon S3 (TM) uploads and other requests from its current user base.

Here’s what’s new in Version 1.6:

  • German localization: Ubercaster is finally localized in German; including the build-in Help system.
  • Native Skype support: - It’s now incredibly easy to record Skype conversations. Due to the fact that Ubercaster uses the official Skype API you can call your buddies directly within Ubercaster. No additional drivers or special configurations are needed.
  • “Level Meter” panels: - Always have an eye on each input panel’s level or the overall level of your podcasts.
  • Export audio clips directly from the Cut layer: It’s now possible to save any audio clip from the Cut layer to disk with just one click; including all assigned filters and volume envelopes.
  • Amazon S3 (TM) upload: Ubercaster v1.6 supports uploads to Amazon S3 (TM) servers.
  • ID3 Lyrics tag: In addition to the ID3 comment tag you may now add text to a file’s ID3 lyrics tag.
  • Keep ID3 tags in sync: Ubercaster v1.6 provides an additional variable token called “Derive Content”. This token copies another release slot’s content of the same text field. This way, you can release your podcast in multiple versions in an even simpler way.
  • Ubercaster’s handling of external file references has been greatly improved: If audio files, used in a project, are renamed and removed in the Finder, Ubercaster is now aware of this changes and corrects the references automatically.

All in all, Ubercaster v1.6 brings more than 45 new features and improvements.

If you’re a Ubercaster user, let us know what you think of the update in the comments!

System requirements:

  • Macintosh with a G4, G5 or Intel CPU
  • Mac OS X v10.4.4 or later

Ubercaster 1.6 costs $79.95 (USD), registered users can download as a free update. A free trial version is available on Ubercaster’s homepage.

  1. Okay, I got it.

    Now lets see what the new year brings because this happens to be able to do something that GarageBand has needed since day dot, INSERT and SHIFT forward.

    The rest of it seems pretty compatible (I still have to check out how well it works with Skype but that feature seems sweet too.)

    Listen for MSBPodcast.com to be releasing some podcasts done with UberCast in the new year.
