Download mp3 General troubleshooting, a discussion of show possibiilities, and lots of audio adjustments.
This week's assignment: (same as last week) post a short clip of a skype recording. Also post requests for streaming assistance to webcast experimental shows.
I've been using ID3-TagIT to add meta data to my MP3 files.
Good luck class of 2.0.1!
Here is a video for Audacity .. how to edit volume on pre-recorded audio. I did not record sound but I have a text message at the end of the video. Just trying different methods of using video!
I created a larger picture video here ! (takes longer to load)
Recording a telephony conversation
January 21, 2007
Once you've recorded and posted your introduction, your next challenge is recording a telephony conversation. There are a variety of way to do this.
If you want to record the conversation without streaming it to via the shoutcast server, you can use a number of skype 'extras', 3rd party recording programs, or telephony programs that support recording. More info here.
If you want to record the conversation and stream it via the Shoutcast server, things get a bit more challenging. Methods vary based on operating system, sound card, and an assortment of other variables, but generally requires either a desktop USB mic or a USB headset that has two separate inputs (one for the mic and one for the earphoens). It is doable with a 'regular' headset, but thusfar sound quality has been poorer and echo issues have been unavoidable. It is also doable using some kind of external mixer, but we have not yet experimented much with that method. Windows users will most likely need to use Virtual Audio Cables , while Mac uses will need to use Audio Hijack Pro
This weeks task: post a short (about 1 minute) recording of both ends of a telephony conversation using whatever method you can.
You can try to contact other interns or friends for the recording or if no one is available, you can call 'Skype lady' at 'echo123'
