Hello David,

Your recordings will sound better if you give a little thought to damping audio refections. It is amazing what a few cushions and a blanket draped over a door can do. Your fan is probably being recorded because there are plenty of hard surfaces to bounce the audio around. Introduce plenty of soft furnishings to stop the sound from being reflected. Also change the angle of hard surfaces if you can. Because if you have 2 parallel surfaces sound just bounces backwards and forwards and is amplified. By having a door half open, will reflect the sound in a different direction. There are many DIY acoustic hood youtube videos. From a simple cardboard box to things a lot more elaborate. Sound also bounces from floor to ceiling. Stand on a soft rug or something to stop the bounce. A cardboard box tippled up on its sided with your bed pillow inside and against the back of the box will have a dramatic change to the recording.

It is a lot easier to stop it being recorded in the first place than to remove it..

Regards,

Gena

Hello,

Thanks. I can do a segment of just the background fan audio. It's a
standard box fan on the high setting if that helps.

I can do a segment, how long, and when I have just that segment what next?

Thanks.
Dave.

Hey David.

Sorry, EQ is just short for "equalisation", which I should have used. It
just means applying an equalizer to the tracks to bring out the desired
frequencies. You may not need it, depending on how yours sounds after you
record.
What kind of background noise is it? It's easy to remove hums and steady
machine-like sounds. You should record a section of nothing but the noise,
then apply a noise reduction thing to reduce that particular noise/set of
frequencies. I record on my desktop and the fans are fairly noisy -- the
noise reduction filter drops that out pretty nicely.

For podcasting, consider another microphone -- a unidirectional one that
will just pick up your voice/what's directly in front of it. That said I
don't use one of those currently, but one of those snowball mics -- it does
pick up sound from all around it, but it's quiet around here as it's just me
in this place, so it works ok. Still, a more studio-oriented mic would be
ideal.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. What I did with my first go was to make the podcast
then use goldwave's maximize volume option to get the volume to zero db
without clipping.

I have been reading, and listening to tutorials and presentations since my
first podcast and have learned about vst plugins, that's where I wondered
about a compressor. I've also got some background noise that my phone
microphone picks up. It's from another room about ten feet maybe 15 feet
away I'm actually surprised the mic got it, if possible i'd like to filter
that out.

Can you explain EQ?

Thanks.
Dave.

Anyway, you say you're already using plugins and doing
post-processing. Is that not working out for you? What are you doing to
the audio exactly?
Noramlising audio volume?
For your speaking voice, a bit of compression might be nice, but I
think eq is maybe the most important thing to apply -- in my opinion
you want to bring out the higher frequencies of the human voice a bit,
to make things like sibilances clear and well-defined but not so sharp
that they're distorting (this shouldn't happen so much with a good
microphone, anyway).

Hello,

I'm dipping in to podcasting. I've made and submitted one, but think I
could do better. The podcast is a demo which is recorded on my s10+
using amazing
mp3 recorder, and demoing features of the phone so it's also talking.

One thing I've noticed is sometimes the audio isn't right, it's either
to loud or not loud enough, I've maximized volume. I am using
goldwave6 with some added-vst-plugins for post-processing. The files
are recorded as wav files then saved as 44.1Khz 64Kbps mp3 files.

I thought about giving a compressor a go to make my voice crisper and
the phone volume more even as well, but don't want to smash things to
soundly.

I'd appreciate any tips.

Thanks.
Dave.

One thing I've noticed is sometimes the audio isn't right, it's either to
loud or not loud enough, I've maximized volume. I am using
goldwave6 with some added-vst-plugins for post-processing. The files are
recorded as wav files then saved as 44.1Khz 64Kbps mp3 files.

I thought about giving a compressor a go to make my voice crisper and the
phone volume more even as well, but don't want to smash things to soundly.

I'd appreciate any tips.

Thanks.
Dave.











Re: podcasting, any tips?

JM Casey
 

Crazy volume differences are one of my pet peeves listening to podcasts. I like to listen to them while doing stuff around the home, with my desktop PC broadcasting to my bluetooth headphones. It works great until someone inserts an audio clip from somewhere, or there's a guest on, whose volume is so different from that of the main host -- either loud enough to burst my eardrums or so quiet I have to crank it and then quickly turn down again when the clip is over.
Anyway, you say you're already using plugins and doing post-processing. Is that not working out for you? What are you doing to the audio exactly? Noramlising audio volume?
For your speaking voice, a bit of compression might be nice, but I think eq is maybe the most important thing to apply -- in my opinion you want to bring out the higher frequencies of the human voice a bit, to make things like sibilances clear and well-defined but not so sharp that they're distorting (this shouldn't happen so much with a good microphone, anyway).

Hello,

I'm dipping in to podcasting. I've made and submitted one, but think I could do better. The podcast is a demo which is recorded on my s10+ using amazing mp3 recorder, and demoing features of the phone so it's also talking.

problems solved, explanation inside

Hi List,
Thanks to all who have written and made suggestions. The answer had nothing to do with what I was writing. It seems that the keys for left and right bracket were not labeled as to their function. So my sighted techie frien went into the options menue, and to the keyboard menue and labeled the bracket keys to say start and finish markers. Now the program seemes normally. I can’t tell you what a relief this is-but I’m sure you understand.
Thanks again.
Vinny

Hi Vinny!


Try I for starting marker, and O for the ending one.

Greetings,

I am in the UK, my time at writing is 06:46.

I will try and answer you in what may turn out to be a long email.

I assume you are using GW V6.54, I have this the latest, not yet installed
and am also using Windows 7.

Now to have my breakfast!

Hi Colin,
I tried doing what you said, but can't get the
cursor positions to change, no matter what I do.
Let me ask a couple of questions. 1, . What does control G do? 2,
What and were is the play tab? and 3, I don't understand the zoom in and
out selections in the view menue. Depending were you are, and how much time
you have, maybe we can get together on zoom or by phone if you are in Canada
or the U.S.
It's funny, I have been using gw since at least 2009, and have been very
successful with it until now.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll keep trying different things.

Greetings,

OK, this is how I would do it but at present still using V5.70.

1. Start playing file.

2. Do Ctrl with g and enter the new cursor position, press enter, you are
now at the position entered so pause file and press left bracket placing
start marker at cursor position, if you want to start at the beginning, your
start marker is already at 0.00, when you start playing the file, so do the
cursor thing for the finish marker which is right bracket.

3. Make sure you have in the play tab the 0.00 edit field set to in my case
0.15, which means whenever I move the cursor or marker, I hear 15 hundredths
of any sound, so now you have your cursor at the end of the sound, adjust
the marker bacvk/forward to ensure you encompas the whole required deletion,
play the end to ensure.

4. Press delete key, job done.

If you need delete partway through a file, use the above to set start and
end markers, adjusting markers using a very small zoom setting I have mine
set to one second, also have play2 set to play selection and play3 set to
play view, in my case mostly one second,
