Building the pod – episode 120

And you thought it would never happen, right?
At last, BTP is back.
This week, a couple of e-mails to answer.
Jim Weishorn asked about the introduction of quantization errors from too much processing.
And Mike Wills asked about encoding your mp3′s from inside Audition, but using Lame instead of the Fraunhofer codec.
Which led to a discussion of the CoolLame filter, available from Rarewares.
Then, a look at the extended capabilities of the Extract Audio From CD tool in Audition v3 (which now has the ability to retrieve album metadata from an internet database so you can rip and tag your CD’s!).
As you’ll hear though, going forward from here, it’s going to be tough for me to maintain 3 weekly podcasts. Time will tell just what I am able to deliver.

Sine Language – episode 080

This week, some e-mail to answer regarding what sampling frequency should we use as a default and why,
utilities to use for ripping and encoding your mp3′s,
how to mix podcasts that prevent your listeners from falling asleep (an area in which I apparently succeed!),
and recording audio on a laptop.
Also, Bruce’s recent home theatre trials and tribulations.
