Audacity

The search for a superb microphone

I want to do some recording  to put online (poems, not mine - other people's). Although I've got a reasonably expensive microphone (Logitech USB) and use Audacity for the recording, I'm not really contented with the results.

The following couple of lines ("All the world's a stage") I've recorded:

1.  With my Olympus voice recorder and then converted to MP3.
2.  Is a recording done with Logitech micro and Audacity (and also converted to mp3).

Wouldn't you agree that the Olympus recording (1) is better?

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.

Kicking the stream

Carla and I just had a great game of stream-football, where we practiced how to kick each other out of the stream in order to take over. Quite easy, really. It was also fun just to talk.

It's funny how you can get close to people simply through chat, but as soon as you can hear each other's voice and talk and react, it becomes intensified. After only just a couple times it feels like talking to an old friend.

mp3 conversion with AUDACITY

Friends at the Academy,

 

Would you like to save my PC or me disappearing through an upper window? Problem: Audacity refuses to convert aup files to mp3. Yes. I have got Lame. Have now deinstalled and installed Audacity and Lame four times. Audacity claims to have converted, but no mp3 device, including Audacity itelf, recognises what is generated. What would YOU do?

Audacity Mac Intel

I was just having a terrible problem with exporting from Audacity to create an mp3 on the Intel Mac. The lame download from the site is fine. The problem is that you don't really know what you need in the end so when Audacity asks you to find it, you don't know what you need.

Teachers4TELL - Getting Ready for the Real Show!

 
Well, yesterday was a blast! Once again the intrepid Webcasters-to-Be gang got together just for a little practice, but it simply became a whole show! Yes, with guests, participants, change of streamers on the go, all kinds of topics...In the Webhead/Edtechtalk spirit, very organic. Streaming just started to flow and voices were pretty loud and active. My settings to record with Audacity and to stream in Sandbox A were the same as last time. In the middle of the show, I stopped streaming and Illya picked it up. Successful transition. Laughs! I'm sure Illya felt the responsibility of having Jeff as a guest of our show! One week before I couldn't imagine to be skyping Jeff who wanted to be there with us. We even had listeners, Linda Parisi and Susan Ettenheim got to Sandbox A.
