ok. so jenn and i want to do our own little show and we’ve begun to master some simple audacity and skype tasks to do this and make our recording quality at least passable. i’m doing more reading, both online and at the library nearby (yay george!), but i am still feeling a bit like some of the recording/mixing equipment is a bit over my head computer wise.
now, it is integral to the success of our project that jennifer not be saddled with every computer savvy requirement of putting out a podcast. and i have a real interest in shaping and contributing to the sound and format of any show we put out.
so my question is this: what type of equipment are people using? what type of programs? i know our old friend dan! is at this very moment practically matrixed into his apartment and massive mac based system that verily pulses with its own life force. so maybe, uh dan!, not so much!! but anybody else, with a more homespun approach? i’ve got a sony vaio laptop (no derogatory mac user comments, please! 🙂 ), and some spare change. but though i’m sort of a techie in that i do like gadgets and am very plugged in”, i’m no code monkey.
suggestions? thoughts? bueller?
