George Massenburg at Integrate ’09

Filed under: Building the Pod,Integrate '09,Sine Language,trade show — Bruce Williams @ 21:05

As you may recall, in August I attended the inaugural Integrate pro audio, video and lighting trade show here in Sydney.
At that show, George Massenburg was the keynote speaker, and thankfully, the guys at Integrate have just released George’s keynote discussion as a 2 part video on YouTube.

But fear not. You needn’t go searching for them, because you can see them both right here.

This (or ‘these’ if you prefer) is (are) definitely worth watching!

Sine Language – episode 116

This week, a short episode featuring a heap of positive feedback on the Integrate ’09 vendors episode.
Then, Bomar asked if he should buy an audio interface with some DSP that he can track through, or should he just record clean and use plugins later,
and David McKeitch brought us up to speed on his indie-film tracking project.

Oh, and a reminder that there’ll be no podcasts at all next week, as Cath, Max and I are away on holiday.

Sine Language – episode 114

In ep 114, how NOT to attend a trade show,
my man in Hollywood gets back to us on track laying for motion picture,
and JR asked about the best way to record some character interviews outside of the ideal studio environment.

A couple of links for you:

the Wiki article on decibels,

the Wiki article on downmixing (which also includes info on LtRt).

No SL or BTP again

Filed under: Building the Pod,Integrate '09,Sine Language,trade show — Bruce Williams @ 0:24

Sorry guys… this weekend has seen the PMA Imaging Technology Show being held at Darling Harbour here in Sydney, so all of my time has been consumed by that (lots of ‘special’ episodes of Shutters Inc.)
However, the good news is that today (Monday) is the first of a 3 day trade show for the pro audio industry (along with video and lighting).
And my plan is to once again take along the hand held recorder and grab some interviews on the trade show floor, so hopefully, I’ll have a ‘special episode’ or 2 of Sine Language to release this week, too!
Stay tuned.
