Choose an Aspect Ratio (Landscape, Square, or Portrait)

Depending on where you want to share your audiogram (YouTube, Twitter, etc), choose from either:

  • Landscape: 16:9, ideal for YouTube and websites.
  • Square: 1:1, best suited for Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
  • Portrait: 4:3, useful for Instagram stories and Snapchat.

Trim Your Audio

Adjust the start and end points of the audio clip to trim the length of your podcast.
