I’ve had a couple of comments of some forums about the poor audio quality of a couple of the recent interviews, so I thought a word of explanation may be in order.
Where possible, I try to record interviews with people via Skype – Skype, as that gives a very clear line (usually) – the View from the Veranda shows are a case in point.
However, not everyone I talk to has access to Skype, and therefore I record interviews from Skype – telephone, which has a mixed quality (for example, the most recent interview in show 51). I try to clear the results up as best I can, but I’m currently using fairly basic audio software, so the post recording processing is not what it could be.
If you think a particular show is suffering from poor audio, let me know, and I’ll see what I can do to clean it up further.
However, if anyone can recommend an audio package that could help with post-production audio clean-up, I would be grateful (For PC/Windows please – I know Macs are better for audio, but I’m somewhat constrained in my hardware choice at the moment)
