Now about your screenshot: looks like Hindenburg but who knows. Also, tell me what you did to edit the bottom part of the recording… it looks like a lot of work on the sound / volume. Call me curious
I can’t remember if you used Zoom or Zencaster or … ? to record our two tracks when we talked last fall.
Yes, that’s Hindenburg.
Select the audio clipping and press cmd-shift-L for auto-leveling
Every episode [with a guest] of the Podcaster Community show has been recorded with Zencastr.com — that’s how I get
.wav files from the guests’ sides.
I appreciate the shortcut. When I choose magic levels (I’m not working on a recording at the moment), it doesn’t fine tune like that.
Zoom also records two tracks. My only complaint is that sometimes moments in conversation drop or there may be artifacts I can’t explain.
I have an important (to me) interview set for Tuesday. I want to make sure I get it right!
“Arrogant people are not learning, they are defending what they know.” - thank you. So many deep insights.
And congratulations Craig - 100 episodes!!! As we say in North-West London - RESPECT
Is that in Buzzsprout @Lovelace? Buzzsprout magic mastering is really Auphonic.com under the hood. And Auphonic should be producing results as well as Hindenburg. It’s actually a process called Loudness Normalization.
Let me know if you need any help with this process.
Looks like a pretty fair dialogue, @craig !!!
Such an HONOR to be your centennial episode, @craig !
Thank you Maybe it’s auto level in Hindenburg? I need to check when I open Hindenburg next.
I’m using Auphonic on all the recordings as the last step. Is this redundant?
Still learning (although I no longer use Audacity.)
Never redundant @Lovelace !! The algorithm in Auphonic is very good at getting the levels balanced so I’m surprised if you are not getting the results you are happy with. I don’t have any knowledge of Hindenburg I’m afraid.
Thank you again. I’m not unhappy with the results from Auphonic and I find Hindenburg user-friendly for recording and editing.
It’s Zoom sometimes dropping bits of the recordings that frustrates me. I need to look at other options.
Ah! I understand @Lovelace.
I’m experimenting with Zencaster’s free plan. They give us 128kbs mp3 files on seperate tracks which is much better than Zoom’s audio. Plus it’s a double-ender recorder which means that it’s less affected by poor internet connections. It’s not perfect but worth trying at that price!
