Making-of Ornitologia May 17th
This show was written and recorded in Florence with a mobile rig: a Zoom H2 recorder, a little mic tripod and a pop filter.
The sound was registered to Live Lite 7 with the Zoom H2 directly connected to the mac trough an USB cable. A de-esser, a compressor and some equalization was applied in Live. The sound clip was further edited with Fission, to remove breathing, long pauses, etc.. Unfortunately, you can hear some clicks from the sloppy editing. The production and mixing was done in Apple GarageBand.
Finally, I use my first bird field recording in this show! The program features some florentine birds. The sound was captured with the Zoom H2 in 24 bit/44.1 kHz to the SD Card. There was a nearby air conditioner annoying around 400 Hz, so I filtered the birds in Live a little bit.
