Making-of Ornitologia March 29th
This episode was written and recorded in Berlin. All audio was captured with the Zoom H2 recorder in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit. For the conference, the device was placed on the floor of the Berlin Philharmonia lobby, in the narrow microphone arrangement (90º), with one mike pointing roughly to a speaker. There is a lot of noise from the audience, but some comments are great. The conference audio was put trough The Levelator, the automagical voice compressor, normalizer and limiter, that levels all speakers in an audio file. The final editing and mixing was done in GarageBand.
The voice-overs were a disaster, with too much noise and extreme plosives. So I ditched them and rerecorded in Rádio Zero‘s studio with a pop filter for the podcast launch. They are still noisy and you can hear the studio’s gate punching in and out.
