Making-of Ornitologia 0, the pilot

2009/02/18 at 02:42 Leave a comment

The pilot podcast for Ornitologia was completely home-made. It was mixed down and edited in Apple’s GarageBand 3. The sound was recorded in an old school Sony MZ-R35 portable MiniDisc with an Audio Technica PRO 24 stereo condenser microphone and, for the voice-over, a pop-filter.

The sound was transfered digitally from MiniDisc using a Sony MDS-JE520 connected to a MacBook using a TOSLINK cable. It was recorded in AudioHijack Pro using the audio effects: Monomizer and an Apple’s AU Parametric EQ with 5dB gain at 3.545 KHz and a 3.56 quality factor (for voice presence). Then, in GarageBand, a slight compression was used, as well as Male Noisy Speech Enhancer. I don’t feel very happy with the results, as the voice-over seems very distant and noisy. I also talk too much for a 28 min show.

The background bird sounds are all from Freesound project: two Nightingale recordings by suonho and and a clip from the Electric Birds set by Freed.

It was sent to Rádio Zero as an extended, 128 kbps AAC file with album and concert art. As the player doesn’t support m4a files, here it is the 128 kbps mp3 version:
