Sine Language – episode 098

This week, a ton of e-mail to answer from the last month or so,
including some reminiscing about the transition from analogue to digital within the radio industry through the late ’80’s and early ’90’s,
Ron Eastwood tried recording quasi-binaural on a boom box,
Jim Addie sent in a link to an interesting article on the merits, or lack thereof, of recording at higher sample rates and longer wordlengths (when I recorded this episode, I commented that I hadn’t read the entire article. I now have, and have the feeling that at some point in the past, I’ve been pointed to it, and have actually read it. Still, it was good to read it again!),
Greg Andreson (who is all “Bruced” out) wrote to tell me about his Zooms (the H2 and the H4!) and how much he likes them, and to comment on the wildly different standards of audio production that exist within the podcaster community,
and Pascal asked about sidechain compression.
One free VST plugin that I know of which does sidechain compression is Sidekick.
And finally, a bit of a chat about what is in store for episode 100.

Sine Language – episode 069

Filed under: !Podcasts,Creative,H4,Sine Language,Speaker,SPL,Zen V+,Zoom — Bruce Williams @ 21:30

In ep 69, Jan Polland gives us a rundown on the Zoom H4 (download Jan’s original mp3 here),

plus he asks about keeping monitoring levels in check.
Which led on to an impromptu war story (which I now fear may be a repreat). JBL 4430 studio monitor spec sheet. (Sorry, I got the dimensions a little bit wrong.)
Also, a follow up to last week’s “processing order” discussion,
plus my new mp3 player… the Creative Zen V+ (4GB).
