@Djelibeybi @RogueAmoeba I can see myself building all my core live routing in Audio Hijack as I pimp out my services for this stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to Djelibeybi

@Djelibeybi Thanks. My experience has been that @RogueAmoeba’s kit is always rock solid.

via TweetDeck in reply to Djelibeybi

@Djelibeybi I do like getting recommendations from people who use tools full-time. That’s something I miss from when I did radio as a job.

via TweetDeck in reply to Djelibeybi

@Djelibeybi Thanks very much, I’ll check it out.

via TweetDeck in reply to Djelibeybi

@damnanq Yeah. it’s one of those times, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to damnanq

@EnsignR Thanks, I suspected that’s what would happen. I’d set the default to be “most recent episode of that show”.

Oh, and I just deleted the recording. So you folks listening just then now share a SEKRIT experience.

via TweetDeck

I’ll now update the blog posts and other stuff to reflect the change of plans.

via TweetDeck

The new recording time will be this Tue 2 Feb at 2100 AEDT on the same URL. stilgherrian.com/edict/live3/

via TweetDeck

OK, as those listening to the live stream will have heard, a key bit of audio software kept crashing, making things impossible.

“The 9pm Edict” is now live! Or at least it should be. stilgherrian.com/edict/live3/

You should now be able to hear some sort of test transmission, yeah?

Once I settle into a standard audio chain, I’ll do a detailed blog post. For now, I’m still refining every time.

via TweetDeck

@brentspargo That is @AmbrosiaSw’s Soundboard. I so wish they’d restore Soundboard Remote for iPad, so I could get it off the screen.

via TweetDeck in reply to brentspargo

That could be simplified further if I didn’t want the option of recording individual channels pre-mix, or adding more stuff.

via TweetDeck

H6 (mic pre-amp) + Soundboard into Audio Hijack, then via Rogue Amoeba’s new Loopback into Spreaker Studio twitter.com/jeamland/statu…

@lomantik I’ll blog them tomorrow. I’m in prep mode now.

via TweetDeck in reply to lomantik

If this were a permanent studio set-up, I’d have things spread out over devices and screens, but my aim is to be portable.

@tweetofsarah Please excuse me for being abrupt right now, but the script I’m writing is recorded live in under four hours. Talk soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetofsarah

@tweetofsarah Excellent. The next few days are hell, but later in the week works. I’ll be in touch Wednesday at the latest to arrange it.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetofsarah

@tweetofsarah I’m more than happy to chat about this, and even be convinced I’m wrong, but not right now because I’m on deadline.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetofsarah

@tweetofsarah I know that’s the preferred term. That’s why I deliberately use the insulting word to mock myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetofsarah

@tweetofsarah I’ll give you benefit of the doubt in not knowing my media and linguistics background and shtick. I choose it deliberately.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetofsarah

Oh dear. I have just written something that creates too disturbing a mental image for daylight hours.

@CaPtAiN_dAnGeR_ @AbstractCode I did not, because I was busy. I’ll go back there in due course.

via TweetDeck in reply to CaPtAiN_dAnGeR_

@voltagex Yeah sorry. Still, if this arsehattery gets into the news cycle, it’s best to take control of the narrative some way.

Oh. I just used Wikipedia to refresh my memory of who Ross Cameron was. There’s ten seconds of my life I won’t get back.

What is a Ross Cameron again? I genuinely can’t remember. (“I just don’t see how Ross Cameron is relevant.” Yes, that’s how it goes.)

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus To confirm, you would have geographical history on your side.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“I just don’t see” is a statement of a personal failing, not an argument about the world, of course. twitter.com/RossCameron4/s…

@ERN_Malleyscrub I tell you what, given the supposed history between Abbott and Hockey in rugby, that could work.
