Visually Enhanced notes

February 17, 2011

Hey Class,

Eric here.  I took some notes last time we met on things everyone said about each others’ audiocasts.  Here is a list of GOOD and BAD qualities we noted, and some suggestions for improvement.  Remember/consider these when doing your visually enchanced/improving the audio part.

BADs:
interviews hard to hear (fuzzy)
p-“pops” and s-“hiss” spikes (audio edit)
peaking/maxing out freqs is bad
vocal volume shoot-ups (try to keep volume consistent)
segue into interviews? – questions
need smoother reading
music too loud
avoid boring tone of voice
must maintain voice

GOODs:
music in background (appropriate)
interview better in chunks?
clear vox
be clear about the bottom line, actions to be taken
tightness
nice sound effects
charisma
ambition?

Also, here is a link to my group’s visually enhanced audiocast from last Spring.  I hope you find some inspiration or something.  At least maybe a “well, that was ____, let’s do that”, or “let’s definitely NOT do that”. Enjoy and good luck with your projects. Have fun!

-E
