Stopping the boats can cure herpes, and power a mid-range family sedan for more than 1000km.

I gather from what you’re saying about that @abc730 interview is that the PM could be replaced with one of those string-pull speaking dolls.

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad @purserj That would have to be the approach, yes, given how tasers work.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad @purserj “Several people,” eh? And how do you propose to do that?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dananimal That’s true, though uplink bandwidth is always the limiting factor there. Video is not high on my priority list.

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad @purserj I am rather amused by the mental image of you doing crowd control in Penrith.

@purserj @jonoabroad Also heavy enough to subdue unruly guests.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Maybe someone who knows those tools better can suggest a simpler way of doing it. All in Audio Hijack? I guess the recordings all sync.

via TweetDeck

For software, I’ll use Audio Hijack to combine Zoom H6, Skype and Soundboard into one device, Soundflower, then that’s the input to Reaper.

via TweetDeck

I haven’t worked out the exact details of those steps yet, so the exact set of functions added in each may well change.

via TweetDeck

That step would also include the ability to pull in other people via Skype. Then the step beyond that is to chuck in a video feed.

via TweetDeck

The next step will be to provide headphones for all, and Soundboard to drop stuff in ambrosiasw.com/utilities/soun… and the ability to livestream.

via TweetDeck

I’ll document that whole podcast rig, hardware and software, once I’ve used the set-up and debugged any problems. I do have expansion plans.

via TweetDeck

@BeroccaUK Hah! Well played. The day is almost over now. Maybe Berocca patches, like nicotine patches, but classier?

@SnarkyPlatypus Not totally sorted yet, but I am happy with progress.

@purserj These are lighter than the ones I used to have but, yes, they’re not light. Still, the whole rig fits into my duffel bag.

@R_Chirgwin I’ll be in the city on Friday, ‘cos my UTS lecture is at 0900. I can pop to Lilyfield after that.

@R_Chirgwin But, I won’t need that now. Me plus three is fine for Saturday.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I’ve already pinched it for this photo. My two mics’ clips are probably in that crate in your front room. I had two old stands.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

I’ve been a bit lazy there with the cable runs. The mic stands have cable clips on them, and one should coil the spare length neatly.

via TweetDeck

Here’s how it’ll look in operation, more or less. I’m missing the clips for my existing mics. pic.twitter.com/NJgmpaV2c7

@OaaSvc Yeah, and I want to update the firmware on the Zoom H6 and configure a recording set-up, but I have so many other things to do. :/

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@OaaSvc Not quite enough in the budget for it, about $200 short, but I reckon I can do that next month.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@OaaSvc I’ll just set it up around the table so I can get a photo of how it’ll all look in use. I’m not sure that I want to play tonight.
