Update Coming.

Hello guys, 

My apologies for a lack of an update last week.  I was bed ridden with Flu :(

Just a quick note you say I havn't forgotten about this.  I've just finished recording this weeks Podcast and will get on with editting and mixing it.  It will most likely be up tomorrow since I have been called into work tonight. 

In the meantime, I am going to leave you with this sample.  See if you can guess what the source of this sample was and how I went about recording it.  Leave us a comment with your thoughts.

Podcasting Part Deux

Hi all. 

Well I've been working hard on getting an Podcast ready for broadcasting.  All is up and running now so if you log onto iTunes and search for 'Audious Sound Design' you'll be able to subscribe to it from there. 

I have learnt quite abit from getting this up and running.  Firstly, my Microphone technique really sucks.  It needs alot of work.  Alot of work! I was forever moving towards and away from the microphone making it a pain for me to maintain a nice balance.  Although I think I got there in the end. 

Plans for the future with it.  I want to compose a piece of music to introduce the podcast and maybe incorporate a few more sound effects into each episode.  

Anyway, give it a listen and let us know how what you think.

Podcasting

Just a small update to let you know what I've been up to. 

A friend of mine suggested the other day an idea for a Podcast we could work on together.   I have not ever done a Podcast before, but has crossed my mind quite alot over the past few weeks to set one up.  So I got down last night and started trying to figure out how to do things and how to get a feed running through iTunes. 

Well I had success with the help of a couple of online guides: This one and this one.

If you want to listen to my feed just add this url into iTunes: www.audious.co.uk/podcast/MyPodcast.rss

To find my Podcast in iTunes do the following steps:
* Load iTunes
* Click on the menu called Advanced and then click on Subscribe to Podcast...
* A little box will appear asking for the Podcasts Url.  Copy and paste the url above into the box and click Okay.

Don't expect to hear anything special from this feed.  This was just a little tester that I carried out.  I didn't even edit the dialog. 

Hopefully for next weeks update I'll have a fully functioning episode for you.
