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.

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.

    Great podcast today!

    I like the Automatic Phase Correction tool. I assumed Analysis Size was an FFT because of the choices like 128, 256, etc. If that’s the case, picking 1024 should give us 512 frequency bands and 512 corresponding phase comparisons over each Time Resolution chunk…I think.

    On the Auto Align Channels vs. Auto Center Panning check boxes, I thought the first one told it to make the correction by adjusting the samples left/right in time and the second accomplished the same task by adjusting the individual samples up/down in amplitude.

    Try putting a fade in from silence on the delayed channel from today’s example. Use 1.0, Ultra Slow, Both and 4096 for the Automatic Phase Correction settings. Then, run it with only Auto Align Channels selected. Undo the change, and try it with only Auto Center Panning. Finally, undo and try checking both boxes to see them in action.

    Lastly, if the Unique trick doesn’t work for Virgil, he should be able to script the song splits once in Edit View and use the Marker List to quickly save the songs from each track.

    Thanks again for the episode. Yes, we’re still listening!
