Sine Language – episode 110

In episode 110, Tim Cumings is happy with his USB mic pre-amp from Centrance,
Geoff Hankerson was concerned about the proximity of the drinks fridge to my studio, as well as being slightly miffed about the dynamic range in DVD audio when watching movies,
Justin wrote to ask about the different types of reverb and how to find the right one (something which I need to speak further on, perhaps next week),
Here’s a few links to check out:

Building the pod – episode 129

Finally! BTP is back for 2009.
In this episode, we continue from where we left off with the last 3 entries in the “Delay and echo” sub-menu of the effects menu.
Also, Michael Rooney has been slaving away over a hot text editor, cranking out utilities for use with Audition.
Check out the Audition FX Management utility, and the SES Backup utility.
And if you find them useful, please make a donation (even if it’s only a couple of  bucks)!

Sine Language – episode 078

I wasn’t planning on doing another podcast this early in the year, but a couple of e-mails came in, and I figured I may as well just get on answer ‘em!
This week, an “end of year” greeting from long-time listener, Gary Lerude. Thanks mate!
John Meadows asked about what effects or processes get over used, and which don’t get the attention they deserve. (NB. The one thing I should have also mentioned which doesn’t receive the attention it should is mic technique!)
And Vassya asked about why 44.1 kHz or 48kHz, dither, and headphones.
