Hanselminutes Podcast 44 - Basics of Professional Audio
Greetings again, from Arusha, Tanzania! My forty-forth Podcast is up. This will likely be the last one until the new year, where we will emerge from the Holiday Season energized with new listener-supplied topics (both listeners have offered topics! ;) ) and a re-commitment to avoid wasting your time, dear listener.
This final show of the year is a little different, as we turn the microphone around a bit and focus on something that Carl knows piles about, so this is a "Carlminutes" to round out our 44th show at the end of 2006. Carl educates me on professional audio and talks about some of the equipment that goes on behind the scenes to make a (we think) good-sounding show like Hanselminutes possible. I hope you enjoy it.
CALL TO ACTION: We're going to hit 50 shows soon, and let's hope for another 50 after that. What I need from you are topics. I've got about 15 topics queued up, mostly programming topics, which is good. We'll start the year with these topics, as well as any that you send me NOW! So, dear listener, what do you want to talk about?
We're listed in the iTunes Podcast Directory, so I encourage you to subscribe with a single click (two in Firefox) with the button below. For those of you on slower connections there are lo-fi and torrent-based versions as well.
Links from the show are also always on the show site, although this show had no links to speak of. Do also remember the archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Our sponsors are CodeSmith Tools, /nsoftware and the .NET Dev Journal.
There's a $100 off CodeSmith coupon for Hanselminutes listeners - it's coupon code HM100. Spread the word, now's the time to buy. This coupon is good for the CodeSmith Professional With 1 Year Premier Support option.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
- The basic MP3 feed is here, and the iPod friendly one is here. There's a number of other ways you can get it (streaming, straight download, etc) that are all up on the site just below the fold. I use iTunes, myself, to listen to most podcasts, but I also use FeedDemon and it's built in support.
- Note that for now, because of bandwidth constraints, the feeds always have just the current show. If you want to get an old show (and because many Podcasting Clients aren't smart enough to not download the file more than once) you can always find them at http://www.hanselminutes.com.
- I have, and will, also include the enclosures to this feed you're reading, so if you're already subscribed to ComputerZen and you're not interested in cluttering your life with another feed, you have the choice to get the 'cast as well.
- If there's a topic you'd like to hear, perhaps one that is better spoken than presented on a blog, or a great tool you can't live without, contact me and I'll get it in the queue!
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
