a fun and sometimes disastrous walkthrough of rhythm rage

I go through a fun game called rhythm rage which can be found at oriol Gomez’ gaming site. this is a fun bop-it like game where you get points for doing very well. I have a special guest that joines me for some of these. Enjoy. I really love this game.

looking at overcast for ios; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

<p>In this episode I go over the iOs app <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/overcast-podcast-player/id888422857?mt=8">overcast.</a> I discuss the good and bad and just plain ugly regarding the app. For example, focus is lost a lot when using voiceover, at least on my iPhone 6 running iOs 9.2.1. Also, at least in the version I'm using, which is the latest at the time of this recording, the download option is missing per episode. I also don't like the fact I have to apply my actions to 1 episode at a time. I have to delete twenty-four hundred episodes from my download queue and swiping down to delete is not fun that many times. If you have any questions please contact the developer from their <a href="https://overcast.fm/">website.</a> You can also log in to that website using your overcast info and view and listen to your podcasts from anywhere. They also have a twitter account, however I have not received any answers from them via <a href="http://twitter.com/OvercastFM">twitter @OvercastFM</a> or their email form which can be found on their <a href="https://overcast.fm/contact">contact page.</a> Feel free to share this podcast. Any comments and suggestions are more then welcome.</p>

Looking at the new audio boo ios update

In this episode I take a look at the new
audio boo iOS app update that came out on april 24, 2014.

I go over trimming and how it can be improved. I follow that up by leavingĀ¬ a comment on a boo and discussing a work around that you need to do as you cannot hear characters echoed back at you or even edit unless you do said work around. I end by discussion with channels and what they are.

Feedback is welcome. Enjoy.

How to broadcast, or podcast using osx with out too much hassle

This will be a sticky, that is, always at the top, post. This ensures that who ever wants to read this will not have to find the post barrier amongst all the other posts on the podcast blog.

to broadcast from the mac with out too much haste if you don’t want metadata showing, or to do a live remote where you don’t need meta data showing you will need

  • sound flower from http://code.google.com/p/soundflower
  • >vlc or the player of your choice. (I’ve used iTunes as well, but you need another external sound card just in case).
  • Line in (free) from this site
  • Garage band ($14.95) from the mac app store
  • Nice cast $59 from this site
  • and if you are going to do a podcast using this set up you will need the recording software of your choice. I use amadeus

Steps

  1. Install sound flower. I don’t recall if you need to restart your system or not but follow the prompts.
  2. Install line in I’m not going to go through the steps as the user should be familiar with installing apps to a mac.
  3. Install nice cast.
  4. Launch line in
    • A. Choose input as sound flower 2ch and output as your internal sound card or an external if you have another one.. I use an mimic usb sound card.
    • B. Check the pass through check box and you will be able to hear your sound. This is useful if for some reason like if you use iTunes you want to set the output in mac itself to sound flower 2ch. You will then need to switch voice over to another sound card (lion and higher). As a side note you can get to the sound prefs by hitting option plus f12 or if you have fn. keys toggled on fn. option f12.
  5. Download garage band from the app store.
    • A. Start garage band and choose voice for the template
    • B. go to its prefs and go to output.
    • C. Set the output to sound flower2ch and the input to the mic of your choice.
    • d. delete all tracks in the project and create a new basic track, or use the existing one
    • E. from the track you want to use go to the track info area and interact.
    • F. choose stereo 1/2 from the pop up button.
    • if you want the mic on choose on with out feedback. This control will must and unmute your mic. when you are done speaking choose off, or none. Refer to the prior step when you want to broadcast
    • G. Save the file you just created. I called mine mic for broadcasting.band. You will need to set your output and input every time in the prefs or check to see that they have been retained before every broadcast/podcast.
  6. launch your player of choice (not applicable to iTunes) and set its output to sound flower 2ch
  7. start nice cast
    • A. set its source as sound flower 2ch. I’m assuming you already created the preset for the server you are to broadcast to.
    • B. with all of this launched hit cmd b to start broadcasting and check to archive if you want from nice cast and test the server to see if you are connected or have someone tune in and listen to see if you are.
    • C. I usually start with the mic off, that is with the monitoring off. in garage band, play a track or 2 from my player and then turn the mic on by changing the setting in that pop up button to on with no feed back.

and that’s it. It seems like a lot to do, but if you are fast fingered you can put on a successful show.

Attached is the file I use. Enjoy.
