Further Audio Samples

Dane Trethowan
 

Okay in for a double treat this time <smile>
The first sample is of me standing near the reverse cycle air conditioner as it powers up.
My air conditioning unit is a split system thus the compressor is outside and that’s where I am in this recording.
It was 2 degrees outside when the recording was made earlier this morning thus the compressor unit was blowing out cold air from inside the house whilst the other end of the split system was blowing hot air into the house so here’s the powering up.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2nx7ftbgxx7hf8c/190623_0198.WAV?dl=0
Later on the Air compressor had reached full speed, my air conditioner is an inverter unit as you will hear from sample number 2.
The machine makes quite a loud noise and you will hear Yours Truly attest to such with an exclamation <smile>.

The Audio in and outs course starts with audio basics then effects and Reaper. They are excellent tutors and it’s well worth a listen. Take a look here:

Does anyone know about a good website, YouTube channel etc to learn cool tricks regarding audio edition? I mean, making certain effects and such.

Re: A New Kid on the Block

Hello,

I would recommend working through all of the Audio Ins and Outs because they are so packed with useful information. Reaper is easily downloaded and provides a 60 day trial. I believe it is still possible to use it after the 60 day period. For reaper to work for us. The OSARA plugin needs to be installed and so does the SWS extension need to be installed. CAVI also provide a huge amount of effects via the VST archive. Reaper has just released a new version so make sure you get the latest. Don’t use the older software.

It is fun and exciting to be able to produce professional audio.

Good luck!

I’ve been using the App for ages and over that time the Backpack Studio - Formally Bossjock - has become increasingly more powerful whilst keeping the flexibility and accessibility of the App at the users fingertips.
The latest version of Backpack Studio brings yet another breakthrough in my opinion and that is the ability to Stream your broadcast over the Internet right from the Backpack Studio App so this means we now have a pretty much full suite of broadcasting/DJ tools available from one App.
Broadcast whatever you want with the effects you need, the songs that your audience wants to hear, all the stingers and jingles you create and more broadcast over the Internet, recorded in real time etc.
I enjoy using Backpack Studio on my iPad Pro as it gives me plenty of room with which to work and I can assign as many Cart Decks as I need in a session.
If you don’t have an iPad Pro then you can use Backpack Studio affectively though you will need to do a lot more scrolling to get to those extra Cart Players you may wish to use.
An iTunes library is not required though for some an iTunes Library may be a good start.
You can pretty much import your music from anywhere, Dropbox, Google Drive and so on as well as from your IOS device itself.
I hope the next move considered by the developers of Backpack Studio is the ability to take music directly from Spotify or Tidal for your Broadcast Playlist.

[Mac-Access]: Latest iPad mini Model

Dane Trethowan
 

Begin forwarded message:

From: Dane Trethowan <grtdane@... <mailto:grtdane@...>>
Subject: [Mac-Access]: Latest iPad mini Model
Date: 14 June 2019 at 9:59:31 pm AEST
To: OS X & iOS Accessibility <mac-access@... <mailto:mac-access@...>>
Reply-To: <mac-access@... <mailto:mac-access@...>>

Hi there,
I’ve had my iPad mini 2019 model for just over a week now and I really enjoy using the machine.
I had an iPad mini 4 but was glad to be rid of the unit as performance gradually declined and the machine became slower to use.
Thankfully with the new model speed seems to be the name of the game and I would have to say that the Mini is blindingly fast it seems, open an App and its opened instantly or so it seems.
There are some very good reasons to consider an iPad mini apart from the obvious size.
Apple have decided to leave the physical Home button on the Mini along with the fingerprint reader and that’s just the way I like it.
The headphone socket is also available.
Apple have left the Lightning connector on the Mini too so if you have plenty of IOS accessories then you’re going to be right at home.
Price is reasonable given that the iPad mini is using the latest A12 chip found in Apple’s Premium iPhone models so that accounts for the great performance.
I have an iPad 12 Pro 2nd Generation which is undoubtedly the best iPad machine I’ve ever used however the Pro is just far too big to use when one is sitting in an easy chair wanting to browse mail, read books with the Focus Braille Display or whatever.
The Min has stereo speakers which sound very nice but sound is very directional and can be easily muffled if you don’t have the Mini pointing in the right direction.
Speakers are close together so stereo separation is a bit of a problem. I would have preferred it if Apple had put a speaker either end of the Mini - 1 speaker at the top and one at the bottom - as this arrangement would have allowed for better clarity of sound but Apple have there reasons.
This model of iPad mini was released in March this year so why the hurry for me to buy one? I guess the fear of this model disappearing and being replaced with a model that had face recognition was the main factor for me added the good reviews I’ve seen the iPad mini get.
I believe the new iPad Air which is bigger than the iPad mini shares the same identical specifications as the Mini.

I suggest that Media Center probably wouldn't work with this line of tuners.
I doubt whether Media Center ever had the ability to detect Network attached tuners and even then, detection of Tuners by Media Center was patchy at best.
Windows Media Center is a thing of the past and best forgotten.

Yeah I think there is. Don't quote me on that though. Because I was specifically looking for the homerun prime when I was looking so I may not have been paying attention. lol I was curious as to weather that tuner was 1 still a thing and 2 how it worked now Media Center is gone.
Because it indeed was a thing with Media Center.

believe there’s also a version available now that connects via Wifi.
I’m thinking of getting another Silicondust Tuner and adding that to the network thus giving me more flexibility over what I watch and record from Free-To-Air TV anywhere.

Dain, remind me. it's the HD HomeRun prime you have correct? Just asking because I was looking on google for that 1 to see how much I'd have to save up. But first I need an XPS 8930 special addition.

Hi,
As other list members may know I use the Plex TV service with a Plex Premium pass along with a Silicondust TV tuner to record and time shift/watch Live TV.
I received an eMail from Plex regarding changes to the way that Plex will interact with Programme Guides come the end of June 2019.
In Australia for example the current @Freeview@ programme guide will no longer be available so users of the Plex PVR will have to subscribe to a third party programme guide service such as Ice TV.
Instructions are laid out in the eMail and links are given on where to find further instructions on changing the settings in your Plex PVR to make full use of the Ice TV programme guide etc.
As a special offer Ice TV is offering Plex Premium Pass subscribers a 3 months trial of the Ice TV service.
Plex also mentions that these changes will affect Plex Pass Premium Subscribers in other countries and regions though the eMail I received didn’t specify exactly where these regions were so if you’re a Plex user then keep an eye on your In-Box.
As a footnote I’ve made the necessary changes to my Plex system to make use of the Ice TV programme guide and I wish I’d started using Ice TV for programme information and scheduling long ago rather than use the @Freeview@ programme guide service which I’ve found to be very inaccurate for both programme information and programme start/end times.
Ice TV on the other hand is continually adjusted for those times when programmes overrun or channels may prefer to pad out a programme with commercials to make the programme longer thus keep a good audience for longer, advertise new shows and all the other dirty tricks our TV networks get up to <smile>.
