Balancing Things Out . . . ?

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2007-11-14 16:43

. . . An attempt to restore a kind of balance.


Every time I thought about my abortive attempt to record the Skype group conversation with Carla Arena, Erika Cruvinel, a­nd a number of students from Carla's online class "Listening Plus," I felt bad— mostly because I didn't want the students to feel that what they had heard was typical of
international communication via Skype—
and I felt worse because several of them said that they were excited to be able to talk with "a real American."

Hoping to turn a colossal lemon into some lemonade, I transcribed what I said in the original Skype recording and re-re­corded it.

If you click ­HERE, you'll be taken to a webpage with a written introduction, then a link to the actual re-recording.

2007-11-11: Skype Recording and Streaming--D. Oliver

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-11-11 17:59


Oy, vey ist mir . . . . 

This past week, Carla Arena,
Erika Cruvinel, and I had
a Skype conversation with
Carla's online students in
Brasília, Brazil. Carla set up
the streaming, and my job
was to record the session.
We did­ a test about 20 minutes
before the session began, and
everything seemed to be
working OK. I was able to
record everything, but when
I checked it later, the results were . . . not stellar.­

Sound Card Manager

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2007-11-05 14:41

RoMac Sound Card Management allows you set up each of your programs that use a sound with its own individual levels for a sound card, and then launch the program. When you quit the selected program, the RoMac Sound Card Management utility will return all the sound card levels back to normal. It works also for Windows Vista (freeware).

QuickMix: Save your sound card settings!

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2007-11-05 13:58
Are you fed up with carefully setting the audio mixer on your Windows computer only to have the settings changed by another application or when you reboot? 

Do you need to store and recall different sets of mixer settings quickly and easily?

Then QuickMix is for you (freeware).

 Not for Windows Vista...

I guess I'm graduate number 4.  This was a disaster, taking a half hour to get the audio working, only to find out (thanks, Jeff) that I forgot to start simplecast.  Sigh.  But it's done.  I graduated and am ready to move on, continuing to wreak havoc where ever I go.  Hee Hee.  Gotta love webcasting!

This is a recording of another phone conversation—but this time
it's with fellow W.A. intern Pam Shoemaker, not the Skype Lady.
I again used Nicecast and Audio Hijack Pro (both Mac apps),
plus the Mac version of Audacity, and did a lot more editing in
this one.

2007-11-03 Phone Conversation

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-11-04 02:08

This is the first of two Week 2 projects involving recording and editing
a 2-way phone conversation. I used Nicecast, Audio Hijack Pro, and
Audacity. I'm not totally satisfied with the results, but I'm pleased
that I figured out the settings for Nicecast.

Assignment 3

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-11-03 18:05

No editing done in Audacity. All the fun was doing the streaming this week. I should have tried to hijack the real audio feed as well, but I didn't think about it until later. I'm still having difficulties making sure I have the id tags correct. I opened the mp3 in Audacity and opened changed info in the  metadata editor and exported the mp3, but still when I open the file in itunes I see the Nicecast title/tag.

That was intense, so I did it again (actually 4 or 5 times )

Note: Make sure to follow Lee Barber's screencast
for ­proper Nicecast settings for headphones and ignore mine. Watch mine if you want to see the overall process.

I have summarized some resources about sound card requirements on my course notes 2.3 metalist:

After assessing my existing hardware and looking at some blog entries, I noticed that this issue has not

received much attention, even though the sound card is the central workhorse in webcasting.
