Some recent listener feedback

Shutters Inc

Firstly let me start with reference to something that Bruce had mentioned, I think in episode 137.
You were quite concerned with the audio quality that you were able to present to listeners from the portable recorder used at Echuca, the audio on that episode was fine.
I have recently dabbled with other podcasts, and have since canceled all of the downloads except Shutters Inc.
Bruce the quality of the audio delivered by you leaves all others far behind, keep up the good work.
Thanks for the great pod casts not only in the information passed on but also the technical quality.

Bruce, I can only say, in my opinion, that the services you are providing are greatly appreciated.

Building the pod

I've only recently decided to get back into music production after a prolonged absence.
So, when it came to choosing a DAW, it came down to a choice between FL Studio and Audition.
Dollar wise, quite similar although FL Studio does offer more in the way of virtual instruments for this price range.
But I chose Audition for two clear reasons.
1. I really like the look and feel. The layout is just easy on the eye and made sense to me very quickly.
2. I knew I had a great teacher. I discovered Building the Pod through the Adobe web site and soon found Sine Language.
I have to thank you sincerely for your weekly tuition.
It has turned a somewhat severe learning curve into managable bite size pieces.
I simply can't overstate how thankful I am of your weekly podcasts.
Bye for now.

Sine Language – episode 093

Filed under: !Podcasts,DC offset,Sine Language — Bruce Williams @ 7:00

This week, another e-mail from Jim Addie about early (mid 80’s) digital recording systems.
Plus, a discussion on DC offset… what it is, why you don’t want it, and how to fix it if you’ve got it. Sounds like a disease, doesn’t it?

Building the pod – episode 123

Filed under: !Podcasts,Building the Pod,Imaging,Skype — Bruce Williams @ 17:45

After my post on Thursday evening, I received an e-mail from Hugo Sharp asking for more discussion on recording Skype calls into Audition.
Also, I’ve produced new podast imaging with a new voice (Mike Drayson). Love that guy’s voice!
And again, I’m asking for some input. Where does btp go from here?

Help me out here, guys

It’s Thursday night, and believe it or not, I actually have a night where I could record a podcast.
But you know what?
I got nothin’.
I don’t know what to cover in Building the pod.
I don’t even have any e-mails to answer.
Either everyone has deserted me, or I have covered this topic so damn thoroughly that there are no questions that remain unanswered!
So, if there is ANYTHING in Audition that you would like me to cover (or even re-visit, if I’ve done it before), drop me an e-mail, or leave a comment right here.

Don’t mind me…

…just testing out the latest version of WordPress.


I’m interested to see if that audio file ends up being “published” in the feed, like an episode of a podcast.
Pro Tools manual

ok, that ought to be enough mucking around for now.



Well, no, apparently you can now attach media files to a post without them appearing in the feed!
Where was THAT feature when I released btp100?
Thanks to Felix for the heads up.
