The Jazz em Agosto 2009 interview with the festival head, Rui Neves, was recorded at the Gulbenkian Foundation open air auditorium in Lisbon. The Zoom H2 recorder was used with the supplied hand grip and wind shield. The sound was recorded at 24bit/44.1kHz WAV with the front mics (90º), medium (M) gain.
The sound was put through the auto-magical voice processor Levelator. The episodes were then assembled with Ableton Live with a three point EQ, and the mda D-esse and Loudness plugins in the voice channel. The master channel has the Live built-in Master Tape Boost plugin applied. The intros were recorded with the home rig.
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.
Ornitologia 2009-04-05 was written in Berlin. Unfortunately, for technical and logistical reasons, my fault, it wasn’t broadcasted by Rádio Zero. For the podcast launch, I started from scratch, recording the voice-over in Zero‘s studio with a Sennheiser mike and a pop filter. The mixing and editing was done in GarageBand.
For the background sound, I used some clips recorded by myself before and after Beat Furrer’s piano concert in the Kammermusiksaal auf der Philharmonie. Also the Freesound clips used in the Easter episode.
