"Professional tool expertise" may eliminate the need for a wide variety of voices.

It's been almost eight years since Radiotopia's executive producer Julie Shapiro noticed that 70 percent of the most popular podcasts were hosted by men. It's been six years since journalist and audio editor Charley Locke argued that podcast's biggest problem was not finding out. But a variety And it's close to three years since Third Coast's infamous podcast producer Phoebe Wang has called for the audio company to lack diversity, partly leading to the POC directory in Audio.Despite the serious efforts of many well-meaning individuals But podcasts seem to have - and still have - diversity issues. And while there are many factors that help maintain the status quo of the industry, But there is one reason we can confidently point out that is Pro Tools.Pro Tools, created by Avid, are awesome digital audio (DAW) workstation software. 

Using Pro Tools makes it possible to do almost anything in audio format, although "almost anything" is hardly necessary for all. Rather, it is a podcast with the most realistic sound design. Pro Tools offers layers by layer of features that, for most podcasts, are unnecessary. It's scary in its complexity, has a terrible user interface (content), comes with unbelievable customer support, and is very expensive, even when compared to similar programs like Adobe Audition. Whatever How ProTools came to be the production standard in podcasts is a question for themselves, and while a few stores work in the aforementioned Audition, Logic or Reaper, everyone who works on podcasts has. In some respects there is a scary realization that Pro Tools are inevitable and they have to learn it.

Of course, learning involves investing both time and money. (The tuition fee for สล็อตออนไลน์ Berklee Online's Pro Tools certificate is almost $ 6,000) People who have had the opportunity to learn Pro Tools in the past are often qualified for a free, unpaid or professional internship. The economy of paying for tutoring or actual programs to learn software. However, if you want to read entry-level job announcements and / or associates, you'll find that most people need at least some Pro Tools expertise if not "wizards" (the cunning guys are The New York Times, which led Miraculously took the obscure thing "fluency")I asked Shannon Lin, podcast producer at the Los Angeles Times, to expand her tweet.I am aware that Pro Tools is the industry standard, and I think it makes sense to expect a senior manufacturer to have Pro Tools experience," Lin said. They have experience with other audio editing software such as Audition.
In my experience, paint manufacturers in the past were not given the same opportunity. (Eg working in a large store with access to additional resources such as Pro Tools), and their resume reflects that, ”continues Lin.“ Investing in POC reporters / producers by providing the environment. 

Where they are trained is important to a diverse newsroom, everyone is 'green' until they are given the opportunity to prove themselves.I think our industry needs to get better for a long time.It's a classic pre-laying chicken problem - how to acquire skills that should be learned on the job in order to be considered for the job in the first place - and one more predictable outcome. It has to be better for a long time, whether it's public radio, podcasts, or anywhere in between, ”says Julia Furlan, Vox's Go For Broke host and assistant professor at The New School.First of all, Pro Tools is software that wasn't built for [podcasters] in the first place. It has all kinds of bells and whistles that podcast makers don't need. It is an already adaptive technology where [we] use the focus primarily for professional musicians. Second, I think Pro Tools can be used as a goal keeper technique, telling people that unless you know this particular software, which costs a lot of money and is very complicated, then you can't be. It is part of our industry 

Not ideal, but illegal or not?

In short, it's complicated. Keeping such a gate, whether intentionally or not, can be illegal if used to discriminate against a potential candidate.To learn more, I spoke to Aaron Konopasky, senior attorney at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency responsible for federal law enforcement that makes discrimination against job applicants or employees a. It is illegal due to race, color, religion, gender (including pregnancy, transgender status and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 years and over), disability, or genetic information.If someone wants Pro Tools or anything else because they don't disproportionately join any group, that would be discriminatory.
