Well, podcast 3 is out and I've been busy plugging it on stormcock (new and old), facebook, myspace... I think I need a PR person I'm pretty happy with it this time around. I decided not to use any automatic volume level stuff this time and try to mix things manually, in order to preserve the dynamic range of the music primarily. It took ages to do the mix, and I was a bit annoyed to discover that I had a bit of distortion on my voice here and there due to a slightly-too-high level at recording time. I couldn't face recording it again though so that's what you've got. It'll be perfect next time... honest... The big surprise was how well the Skype connection to Australia worked. There are a couple of cases where you hear an audio "lag" artefact but apart from that it worked very well and I didn't notice much in the way of latency, i.e. there wasn't much of a transmission delay. Not bad at all. I decided to throw in live versions of One Man Rock'n'Roll Band and Me and My Woman, because it just didn't feel right to dump full tracks from the new Stormcock in there. I like to try to find music that people aren't so likely to have in their collections already and I love live recordings. The One Man Rock'n'Roll Band in particular is a killer; I was listening through headphones while recording/mixing and was unable to speak initially when it had finished! Well anyway... feel free to add comments here and I'd be very interested to hear any suggestions for other tracks to play on the podcast or other stuff we might be able to feature. Cheers Paul.
