Ringr: Record Podcast Interview With Your Remote Guest Using Your Smartphone

The impact of an audio podcast is well-known to those who are into podcasting.

I myself have seen how much of an impact podcasting can have on my own life from the podcasts that I listen to regularly.

Podcasts are a great way to build a brand, build a following, and make money online. The best thing about podcasts is that you can start one up and launch it for free. To make it more impactful, you can also have guests who can ultimately add more value to your content.

If you’re making podcasts that are giving out a lot of valuable information, it may be a good idea to either work with a co-host or add in a couple of interviews. with some remote-based guests

In the month of July 2017, ShoutMeLoud decided to start a new podcast series that required me to have another host.

The first challenge I faced was which tool I should use for recording. When you are recording a solo podcast, it’s easy to get started. You can use any good podcasting mic and fire up the free Audacity app on your system. You can even use a mobile app to record your audio.

However, when you want to have a co-host or do a remote interview, you need to consider a lot of other factors.

  • How are you going to record their audio and your audio at the same time?
  • How can you make the sound better than a telephone call?
  • How can you easily transfer the audio file into an editor for editing?

I spent a lot of time testing and trying various tools.

The more popular ones I tried were:

I also tried Ringr.

Ringr was my favorite because I loved the overall simplicity and professional quality of the app. It automates the entire process, and at the end, you get audio quality that sounds like the whole thing was done in a studio.

Ringr Review: Record podcast interviews remotely like you are in studio

When I first tried Ringr, I was impressed by the simplicity of the onboarding and the overall ease of use.

Ringr lets you invite a guest (or multiple guests) to a call. Invited users can join the call on their desktop or by downloading a mobile app.

When you schedule a call, you and your guests will both get a calendar invite. This is what the invite screen looks like:

As soon as they connect to the call, you can start talking to each other. Once you are ready to start, simply press the record button and start recording your podcast.

One cool thing about this app is that there is a “mute” button so that you can avoid disturbances on your end when the other person is speaking.

Once you are done recording, click Stop, and the app will sync up both sides and upload everything onto the cloud. When the audio is ready to be downloaded, you will get an email with a link. You can download the audio in .mp3 format (more file formats available in the Premium version).

A few important tips to make the most out of Ringr:

  • Put your phone in do not disturb mode.
  • Ensure your phone has sufficient battery.
  • Use the mobile app for recording instead of the browser add on.
  • Once you are finished recording, keep the app open so that it syncs and uploads the recording. Ask your guests to do the same.

Here is a video that explains how guests will connect to your call:

After using this application multiple times, I can confidently say that I love the way it makes it easy to record audio with someone. Not only that, but by the end of the recording session, you get a high-quality piece of audio.

In the Premium version, you can also configure different audio formats.

  2. Hello sir Harsh,

    Here is another informative post that is too good to be free.

    Use of Podcasts is a great way to reach a very large audience.

    Personally I tend to retain what I listened to than what I read.

    I’ve just fallen in love with this Ringr app.

    With it I will be able to interview a whole lot of bloggers who stay far away from me instead of doing the written interview.

    I am also pleased that this App can produce a very good audio quality that can only be worked on in the studio.

    What interests me more is the trial period without giving out Credit card details.

    I would surely give this a try.

    Thanks once again and do have a nice day.

  5. Hi Harsh,

    This looks like a way cool app dude.

    I am a fan of going solo but may open things up for future Blogging From Paradise podcasts. My wife is always a possible guest of course but my rich network of blogging buddies are pretty awesome guests or potential co-hosts, too.

    I dig that you can record pro-quality, studio-worthy podcasts too. Mine are rough and ready – some say bush league – type offerings recorded thru my Chromebook, but if I can use this to make it like I did the mic and studio bit, all the better.

    Tweeting to 52,000 folks.
