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.

New stomping grounds

Filed under: Admin — Bruce Williams @ 20:47

If you receive my podcasts via iToons or some other podcatcher, and never visit my site, then this won’t affect you.
But if you do regularly come to audio2u.com, I’d like to make you aware of a major structural change that has just been implemented by myself and Phil Massyn (thanks, mate!). Truth be told, Phil has done about 90% of it… maybe even more!

But here’s what it means to you.

If you want to see the show notes for Building the Pod, you will now need to go here.
If you want to see the show notes for Sine Language, you will now need to go here.
If you want to see the show notes for Shutters Inc, you will now need to go here.

At the moment, all 3 sites look very similar.
That will change.
I will be developing a new look for each site over the coming weeks.
The major benefit to you, dear listener, is this.
In the past, people would ask me, “How can I just see the podcast entries for BTP?” and unfortunately because of the way the site was structured, you couldn’t.
You could see all entries for Building the Pod, and exclude Sine Language and Shutters Inc, but you couldn’t separate the standard blog posts from the podcasts.
Or, you could get just the podcasts without the blog posts, but you then got all 3 podcasts!
Wasn’t particularly helpful for those who wanted just the podcast entries of one podcast only.
This new arrangement addresses that.
It also allows me to customise the sites, which will hopefully result in a better all-round user experience for you, the listener.
Any/all feedback is welcome. Just add your voice to the comments below.
Cheers.

Shutters Inc – episode 145

This week, Bruce is excited about having potentially sold his first large format canvas print,
which led to a bit of a discussion about marketing ideas for limited edition fine art works,
tales of woe over how our listeners killed the server after the Joe McNally epiosde was released,
Joe’s video confession,
Bruce’s lens dilemma,
and getting together for a photowalk with your local fellow photographers.

Building the pod – episode 139

This week, a very quick look at the Automatic Click Remover,
followed by a slightly more lengthy look at the Automatic Phase Correction tool,
plus a couple of listener e-mails answered regarding splittting a multi-song multitrack project into individual song projects, and how to capture the sound of scrubbing the CTI across a waveform.

No podcasts this week

And what a rip-snorter of a start to the year!
One week in, and already, I’m letting you down.
Sorry gang.
Shelton and I had plans to record, but something came up at his end.
And I did plan on recording a BTP, but hit a bit of a brick wall.
Grrr.

Sorry for the inconvenience, folks.

Sine Language – episode 122

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! :)
