Tips: don’t use wma format, use mp3. Streaming wma, even at really low bitrate will usually play intermittently, and it does not give you the option to skip forward / backward. Wanna hear it again? Gotta stream it again.
Speak a little louder and move the mic away from the computer / monitor. You’re getting a lot of weird background hum / hiss.
Use Audacity’s remove noise feature to get a cleaner-sounding recording.
Turn up the gain. If you are using software that shows you your levels when you record, you should be aiming to be consistantly around 0db.
Lastly, work on your pacing. Make sure you have your notes ready to go and rehearse a couple of times before recording. Even better, once you’ve recorded your ‘cast, edit it! Editing audio is heaps easier than editing video, so cutting out bits that you don’t like, removing silent gaps or hiding background noise (such as cars or family) are dead easy. You can even do it in Audacity, although it isn’t too good at it. Grab the trial version of Adobe Audition for a really powerful audio editor.November 19, 2006 at 9:02 am #239417
Aren’t you leaving forever?November 20, 2006 at 1:14 pm #239697
Yep, This is going to become a fad. Since “Bringing Bricks To Life” Was made, now everyone is downloading Skype and making there own podcasts. Just let c1’s and LOTL’s podcast stay the only one for a while.
Oh yeah, And did you ask my brother for the permission to steal his sig?

I would like to mention that MY podcast, the WGOASCast, was around BEFORE the brickfilms podcast. They just happend to get their episode out before me.
I made a topic for my cast, but no one said anything in it, so I deleted it.
I would also like to ask this simple question. . . why dose a FORUM need a podcast? That’s like having a Podcast about what happend in your house for the last week. Mabey I’m just stupid and I don’t get it, but it seems a little pointless to me.
~WGOAS, who thinks that the last paragraph he typed should have probably gone in the Brickfilms podcast thread. . .November 20, 2006 at 5:20 pm #239735
What happened to Video Podcasts all of a sudden?

Siggable, indeed. The podcast kept cutting in and out. I just listened to the very first part of it, and was surprised to hear what Droidimation’s voice sounded like.November 20, 2006 at 11:12 pm #239823
You’ll hear a lot more when… ah, forget this.
