Podpress Configuration Options / Tutorial

By | January 15, 2008

Well, it almost seems like I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks. I will admit that I’ve been lazy for awhile, but it has been far from vacation! I’m swamped with work. In addition to work for my clients, I’ve recently released some of my own training products, one of which is Audition 3.0. A lot of people ask me how I do all these audio tricks and create my podcasts, and if you want to see me in action, check out my Fast Track to Adobe Audition 3.0 available at my eBay store. It takes you through Audition basics, as well as some more advanced stuff. But enough about me, what is this week’s podcast on? Read on.

Basic Audio Principals 101

By | December 6, 2007

This week’s episode was recorded last month on location in Aylmer, ONT CANADA. The audio quality of the interview is not superb because of a problem with my screencapture software, sorry. We go over audio basics and start talking about sound in general, frequencies, volume, decibels, all that technical talk. This is the beginning of a 1 hour session that introduces basic audio principals and we’ll apply that knowledge to recording podcasts. Later on, the training will include a kick-start to Audition 3.0, as well as some tips on using Audition.

How To Build a Sound Studio

By | November 29, 2007

Well here we go. I just got back from a trip to Canada where I helped setup the studio of one Bob Mutch, with the SEO Company. It was quite an eventful ordeal, especially crossing the border into Canada. I had to explain everything about podcasting just because they asked me what I was going to be doing in Canada. Well, after a little trip to Immigration, they finally let me go and I was on my way to Aylmer, ONT Canada.

I took plenty of pictures and did some recording. This week’s episode shows the early stages and the whole episode was recorded on the Zoom H2. It’s not studio quality, but hey, there were saws and hammers going off all over the place so what would be the point in a studio recording?

I also gave Bob some training in general audio, as well as a quick start on Audition. I was there for 4 days, and would liked to have done more Audition training, but there were some construction hangups and the studio didn’t get finished until pretty late Saturday.

By | November 3, 2007

Absolutely fantastic! That’s what I’ve got to say about Adobe’s latest version of Audition, Audition 3.0.

Recording a Phone Conversation

By | October 25, 2007

Hey everybody, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a regular show and I actually miss it! We’ve been for several weeks now, going through setting up a new domain and getting it ready for podcasting, and by the way, if you try to go to the site that I used in the demo, it no longer looks anything like what the demos have because I’m going to be doing something a little different with that site and after I got the training done, I went back in and redid the site with Joomla, it’s a little more robust than WordPress, but it’s a lot trickier to get setup, anyhow, the site is different now. This week I’m gonna get to a question that was posted kinda in the middle of that series about phone recording, and I didn’t have much time to deal with it at that point but it’s a great topic, so stay tuned and I’ll be right back.

Installing Podpress

By | October 11, 2007

Well, I’m back this week and I’ve got the second half of last week’s podcast. We’ll finish the process of getting our site to play audio files by installing Podpress, a great Wordpress plugin found at MightySeek.com My old encoder, Media Coder, has taken a turn for the worse with the last release so in the mean time, I bought Quick Time Pro and have thus released this week’s podcast at a better resolution. I’ll re-encode last week’s podcast soon and upload that as well.
