derrallg Audio Assignment for Week #2


I think I have the correct path:

1.    Set up Nicecast so it joins the Skype feed with the usb headphone mike feed,
2.    Set up Audio hijack pro to record, installed hijack plugin so I don't have to restart Skype, and recorded call
3. Opened in Audacity (1.25 instead of 1.33 because of crashing problem), export as mp3 with bitrate set to 64.

4. Note had to re-export mp3 in audacity 1.33 in order to have the sampling rate be 44khz, 1.25 seems to export a stereo mix at 44khz and makes it 22khz or incompatible with Flash player. 

Pam Shoemaker Two-Way Call Recording


I did it!  I fooled around most the day yesterday with horrible results.  The person on the other end of the Skype call sounded like she was in the middle of a long metal tube.  Today, I opened Audacity and realized that I missed a setting... I forgot to change the drop-down box to "Wave Out Mix."  Once I switched it, it worked!   I decided to add some music to see if I could do it.  The music does not go with the recording at all, but I think I was successful in completing the assignment! 

Cheryl Lykowski Practice Webcast Stream 8-15-07


I know this is not a great audio, but despite all of my issues of late, Jose and a few others were able to help me through this. I had other issues afterwards so I was not able to add intro or music. The echo or buzzing is audio equipment. I am just excited that it actually streamed and Jose can confirm it! YEH!

Reading Treasures Show - Getting Ready


Webcasting is about letting it flow, letting it take you to unexpected places, voices and encounters. However, the backstage is about planning, preparation. It seems paradoxical, but, in fact, it isn't. To let the voices around you feel at ease, the group of webcasters must have an idea on where they want to head. The final end might be unpredictable, but they need to know what they are doing there to makes everyone comfortable and confident to speak their minds.

Julie's 1st Webcast attempt!


For all of you Grey's Anatomy Fans- this is a discussion I had with another avid fan recaping the season finale and giving our predictions for Season 4 of Grey's Anatomy. It may sound like high school gossip unless you watch the show!! We had a great time talking (her mic and internet connection were not the best, but we got by). We had about 6 in the chat room!

Lisa Parisi's Ultimate Harry Potter Show


This is my first show.  My guests were Alice Mercer, Jennifer Wagner, and, my daughter, Ali Parisi.  Without them, I would have had quite a chat with myself and listeners would have been bored to tears.  So thank you, Guests, for making my show enjoyable.  You are all great conversationalists.

Practice, Practice, Practice


A few days ago, Alice Mercer and I arranged a practice session for ourselves so that we could continue to practice streaming, capturing audio and general trouble shooting. Alice has the first part of the conversation and what follows is the audio from when I kicked the stream and took over. Little did I know that I would lose Alice for a bit and would have to babble by myself. We were joined by Lisa Durff who reported that there was no sound but we were pleasantly surprised that the sound was there all along. I did some editing so that this audio could be about 10 minutes long.

Hicks - Practice Streaming and Recording


Finally, I was able to get my settings correct with Lee's help and get my practice streaming session done. Thanks, Lee!

... I'm dizzy... Trying , with Jose's help, now, to upload a version friendly to all players

Lisa Parisi's First Successful Streaming!


With help from so many people, I finally was able to stream.  Thank you to Susan, Lee, Cathy, and Chrissy (at 2:00 AM for her), who worked with me through Yugma to solve the setting issues.  And thank you to Susan and Sharon for volunteering to be recorded.  Our fifteen minute conversation is edited here for your listening pleasure.  Enjoy!
