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.

Building the pod – episode 119

Filed under: !Podcasts,Building the Pod,Effects,Facebook,NAB,Plugins,Sidekick,trade show,VST — Bruce Williams @ 10:02

This week,
Jim Perry asked about monitor resolution,
and Valente Espinosa asked about sidechain compression (even if he didn’t realise that that was what he was asking about!).
And it just so happens that there’s a free VST plugin which does sidechain compression!
It’s called Sidekick.
Also, Bruce is heading back to the States to visit NAB (can’t wait for that!),
he’s finally succumbed to Facebook,
and he needs your help with some “stuff”.
