Some recent listener feedback


Hello Bruce.
Thank you for the pedagogical way of showing how to use the Adobe Audition 3 and making me so interested.
All the best
Kasper

Actually, Adobe and Lynda are the ones that should be thanking you.
I purchased both Audition and a subscription to Lynda based solely on what I'm hearing on your excellent programs.
And I hate the word podcasts.
It lumps you in with all the a**holes that think they are content producers because they have a microphone and an internet connection (and you are obviously a professional dedicated to his craft, and know how to produce content).
They just don't know what they don't know!
Scott Hess

I'm a long time listener to your Building the Pod and Sine Language shows, and would like to thank you for producing such informative and interesting podcasts.
I'm a media production student at the University of Lincoln in the UK and your Audition guides really helped me during the radio production aspect of my course.
Paul Hennell

I've only recently decided to get back into music production after a prolonged absence.
So, when it came to choosing a DAW, it came down to a choice between FL Studio and Audition.
Dollar wise, quite similar although FL Studio does offer more in the way of virtual instruments for this price range.
But I chose Audition for two clear reasons.
1. I really like the look and feel. The layout is just easy on the eye and made sense to me very quickly.
2. I knew I had a great teacher. I discovered Building the Pod through the Adobe web site and soon found Sine Language.
I have to thank you sincerely for your weekly tuition.
It has turned a somewhat severe learning curve into managable bite size pieces.
I simply can't overstate how thankful I am of your weekly podcasts.
Bye for now.
Ross Huntley

Oh thank you god a podcast showing you how to properly make podcasts. Thank you Bruce Williams!

New podcast: Nothing to Fear

Filed under: !Podcasts — Bruce Williams @ 20:29

I’m about to launch a new podcast called “Nothing to Fear“.

It will be along the same lines as “Building the Pod“, except this one will be all about the digital audio workstation known as Reaper.

All things being equal, the first two episodes will go live Sunday 12th May, 2012.

I’m really just posting this here in order to get some inbound links to the site, so the google bots will index it.

Building the pod – episode 149

Wow!
2 episodes in 2 consecutive weeks!
This week, we catch up on a couple of listener e-mails:
Ken had another tip for getting the best out of the Adaptive Noise Reduction plugin,
Steve asked about headphones,
(I’d suggest checking out both GoodCans and Headphone Reviews),
and Jim chimed in with some extra uses for the Channel Mixer (like mid-side decode/encode).
If you’re new to the Mid-Side technique, read up on it at wikipedia.

Then it’s on to exploring some funky doppler effects.
