Sine Language – episode 100

Yes folks.
Believe it or not, we’re finally here!
The building of this video has been an absolute labour of love…. I’d estimate that it’s taken me about 20 hours of work to complete!
Maybe, that’s partly my inexperience at producing video podcasts, but hopefully, when you watch it, you’ll see where those hours went.
In an effort to ease the load on my hosting company’s servers, I will be setting up a torrent feed later tonight.
Check back here later for a link to the torrent file.
There’s also a copy of the file at YouSendIt, plus the copy here at

To download manually from audio2u:
sl100.mp4 280MB

From YouSendIt here:
sl100.mp4 280MB

If you want to download a copy of the final mix of the song (featuring a couple of extra tweaks I did later), grab that here:
Fear of Holding On – 320 kbit joint stereo (13MB)

Towards the end of the podcast (or is that vidcast?), I mentioned that I would make the individual instrument tracks available to anyone who wanted to have a crack at mixing the song for themselves.
Drop me an e-mail and I’ll send you the link to download the files.
Just be warned… that’s an even bigger download than the mp4!!
The tracks are 32bit mono and total about 1.1GB!
The download will be in .rar format, so you’ll need an archive utility like WinRAR (or similar) which is capable of unzipping a .rar file.

Hi all,
Just wanted to let you know that I have 2 additional e-Seminars booked for the end of the year.
That means there are 3 opportunities to learn about Audition and Soundbooth VISUALLY between now and Christmas! Woohoo!
So, here are the details:

Clean Up Audio with Adobe Audition 3
12 noon – 1pm AEST (UTC +10)

All e-Seminars take place at the same URL, which is right here.

However, if you go there in advance, you’ll probably see some other e-Seminar title and some other presenter’s name.
Don’t worry… show up on the dates listed above, and you’ll find me.
Hope to see some of you there.
If you have other friends who use Audition or Soundbooth and you think this might be of interest, please advise them to swing by and check out this post.

Sine Language – episode 071

Filed under: !Podcasts,Analogue,Gain structure,Mastering,Sine Language,Soundbooth — Bruce Williams @ 21:45

This week, a quick mention of the fact that I’ll be doing a couple of e-seminars (just short 1 hour jobs) for Adobe Asia-Pacific over the next couple of months.
Specifically, October 19 and December 7.
For those who are interested, they will be about “Cleaning up audio with Soundbooth CS3.
Remember also that if you are interested in Soundbooth CS3, I have recorded a video training title for which you can check out here.
And if you’re interested in purchasing the CD-ROM, I’ll have copies available soon!

Also, I revisit the old “mastering to -1dBFS” argument again.

Plus, I do my best to answer a query from Bill Burns (at the Security Hype podcast) about calibrating input and otput leves between an analogue mixer and your PC’s (or Mac’s) soundcard and DAW software.

Building the pod – episode 069

In episode 69, what else? Soundbooth.
And since recording this, I have confirmed that no, there are no multitrack capabilities in Soundbooth.
The Adobe Labs RSS feed.
And a discussion on the multiband compressor in AA2.0.
