Happy new year!
A quick mention of our holiday cruise (blog and pictures start here),
an e-mail from Steve Filmer regarding a couple of articles on NPR;
this one on the loudness wars, inluding this great pdf,
and this on one the average level of TV commercials,
a quick mention of James Cameron’s epic, Avatar,
and the final segment (I guess?) on vocal recording, including hung mics and signal structure. I know I’ve covered signal structure in the past, but am having issues finding which episode that was in. If anyone knows off the top of their head, drop me an e-mail, would ya, please? Cheers!

He also went on to provide some interesting real-world feedback on sample rate conversion.
Then, Matt sent me this screen shot of the Pro Tools manual where apparently, even Digidesign doesn’t know the difference between “bit rate” and “bit resolution”.
Then, Luke asked about vocal training.
Next, E. Bernhard Warg sent me an mp3 of a shoot out between a Coles 4104 ribbon lip mic and a standard lav mic, with regard to ambient noise suppression.
And finally, there were some listener comments on audio2u about my disaster last week.

This week, I received an e-mail from Slau regarding an article he wrote for SoundOnSound magazine back in ’95 regarding digital and analogue levels. It’s definitely worth reading, and you can do so here.
I also had a query from Bruce McKinnon at the Dogbox podcast about convolution reverbs, and how they work.
Plus, the second instalment in the “making a promo for your podcast” series.
