Okay, so after much crazyness concerning the Live Podcast from SANSFIRE of Episode 9, its finally posted.
So to give you a quick run down on what took us so long to get this thing posted, all of the mics that we were being used was going into a Soundboard, and the Soundboard audio was going directly out to a DVD recorder. The DVD recorder also had video In from a camera in the back of the room that was being manned during the podcast.
Turns out, the camera was also recording! Isn't that awesome? Well, turns out, there is alot of FAIL in this story.
The camera, has mysteriously vanished. Don't know where it went, but in it somewhere wherever it is, is a recording of the podcast. If someone finds this mythical recording, please, feel free to give me the video/audio off of what is inside it.
Wait, you say, what about the DVD Recorder? Well, we got the DVD, but the DVD has a big fat scratch down the middle of it, and we can't get the video off of it.
But luckily, I had garageband open, and I recorded the podcast using my built in mic on my macbook pro. Now, this is not the best audio in the whole wide world, but at the time, we had no alternative. So THAT's what the audio from the podcast is. Not out of the soundboard, not off of a video camera, but off of my built in mic on the MacBook Pro.
As a result the audio of some of the people, unless they were loud, or speaking into a mic, is not the best. You'll hear some of this in the beginning, but once we got everyone speaking into mics, and being loud, it gets a bit better.
You'll also hear me whispering for beer at some point in the beginning, just disregard that, beer was needed. :)
