BSP Episode 277b: Winter’s Bone – Mixed Audio/Mono

In this episode, we tried something new.  As you might know, we are attempting to learn to play musical instruments.  This week we decided to plug our guitars into the mixer and fiddling around with them while we chatted.

There are 3 different versions of this episode.

  • Version A: Split Audio/Stereo – If you listen to this version, you’ll hear our voices in your left ear and the guitars in the right.
  • Version B: Mixed Audio/Mono (This Version) – If you listen to this version, you’ll hear both our voices and the music in either ear (or both).
  • Version C: Voice Only/Mono – If you listen to this version, you’ll hear just our voices.  This one is shorter because I cut out the pauses where we are playing our instruments.  You might also hear some background string plucking that our vocal mics picked up.

Let us know what you think of our little experiment, good or bad.

It worked!

And since you asked for feedback… I only got about 15 mins into this version until I stopped it and downloaded the unmusical version. The music practice wasn’t terrible to listen to or anything, but it was really distracting (more than once in those 15 mins, I couldn’t hear the discussion). The metronome, on the other hand, was incredibly annoying.

To be fair, I’m not a huge music fan (movies and table top for me please).


Thanks for the feedback!

Awww no love for Fatbeats? I’m with you though, it wasn’t too bad while we were in the moment, but it was incredibly distracting when listening back through the episode.

If we do anything like this again, I might try to find a better, more subtle, metronome, or maybe just do something locally instead of pumping it through the mixer. Also, releasing the voice only track seems to be the one that is drawing the most interest.

Thanks again!

Finally got to listen, I enjoyed it. Your musical skills seem to be coming along nicely, though the metronome was a bit overenthusiastic.

I also enjoyed that you only talked about the topic for 1/6ish for the total recording. It was like I was listening to the Podgecast.

BSP is the cast I look forward to most each week, keep it fellas!
