Lots of thanks to everyone for suggestions for the Adobe CC alternatives list.
Here it is, let me know if there's anything you want added/corrected:
(Natron looks good too but it seems to be no longer maintained, and its official website's certificate has expired.)
@switchingsocial maybe also alternatives to android/apple? (Controversial, I know)
@Joe @switchingsocial Yeah, in that case probably Ardour. I still use Pro Tools personally (more music stuff than podcasts), but there are a couple other open source ones listed here I hadn't heard of:
I *have* mixed a track in Ardour, but it's not Ardour that's the problem - it's JACK.
Maybe Ardour on macOS is better because honestly, Apple got things *right* with CoreAudio; Pulseaudio and JACK are atrocious by comparison.
But for FLOSS on Linux, I'm not sure.
@Joe @switchingsocial Checking https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_audio_player_software#Protocol_abilities things seem to point to Amarok:
Apparently better podcast support is on their roadmap, for the next version:
Funkwhale instances accept one or multiple users. If you join an existing instance, like https://open.audio, you'd have to request some storage space to upload your work.
If you set up your own instance, you can of course do what you want, but regardless of your choice, if you share your work publicly, it will be eventually federated to other instance, and embeddable via an Iframe on third-party websites
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
