    Brian/Dave -

    I'm assuming this will be a weekly podcast?

  4. Dave Collins says:

    Yes the plan is to interview a new guest each week. The itunes link is now live so make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode!

    The recording quality needs to be improved, it's too tinny.
    The sound quality of Brian's speech is poor, meaning tinny and echos, and not easy to hear, compared to the interviewer.

    Maybe you can record at a slightly higher bit rate?

  6. Brian Burke says:

    That's my cheap mic, not bit rate. But you're right, and it's something we'll try to improve.

    Good stuff! Can't wait for the next weeks piece!

    Bit rate won't solve the issue of high frequency reverb and comb filtering. Bit rate will only affect signal to noise ratio: the amount of hiss.

    The best ways to control the high freq reverb and comb filtering will be to use a directional microphone (some version of cardioid pattern) and some sound dampening materials at first reflection points. You need to tame the high frequencies that bounce off all the rigid structures around your room. Something as sole as hanging blankets around you will help.
