Layla has been my trusty companion for 10 years of audio projects, but recently she developed an unpleasant and annoying habit that took us both on an interesting adventure.
Getting a two-way remote studio link can be a hard work, with the inevitable tangle of ‘mix minus’ setups. Thankfully, help is often at hand in the form of a USB mixer; as well as being simple it keeps your setup getting most done with least equipment.
Recently we introduced Cleanfeed’s recording to the wider world as beta, and we’ve been making some updates based on your feedback (the written type, not the audio-artefact type!)
It’s a simple request: to record an interview with a co-host or guest in another location.
Today I’m excited to share something we’ve wanted to do for a while now; pre-configured recording directly in Cleanfeed itself.
You get the quality of Cleanfeed and no need for extra recording hardware. Just join your guests to a Cleanfeed session and press ‘record’. It’s available today in beta.
Today we’re widening the net to allow any Cleanfeed user access to some of the features that are happening as part of our Research and Development (R&D) process.
When we started the blog we wanted to get straight to the really important issues (cough) going on at Cleanfeed headquarters and address the community’s most frequently asked questions. This is one…
I just came out of a radio interview with Andy Davis from Tenkai Solutions. Andy is both an experienced developer and an expert on recruitment methods for technical jobs.
One of the things he’s a great advocate of is “pair programming“, and he was explaining how he’s been using Cleanfeed instead of Skype, to send and receive the audio when working with other coders remotely.
Ever since launch, it’s been one of the features our users have talked about the most; the simplicity of opening a full-band audio link just by sending an email.
And email is great, but sometimes it’s not the most reliable. Now you can make a Cleanfeed connection by other means, too.
As part of handling some of our growth, we’ve spent the weekend moving some of our critical services to a new ISP. Actually we started this process several weeks ago, one-by-one forwarding parts of the Cleanfeed service via their new home. Quite a major upheaval, but you didn’t notice anything, right? Good.
As a bonus we’ve started the process of opening up a globally-diverse set of relay servers, so all users can begin to get some of the benefits that our ‘enterprise’ customers have been enjoying for a while now.
So, it turns out we’re better at building streaming audio systems than we are at social media!
This blog is an attempt to change that, as well as a place to let our hair down a little.
We hope to share useful and interesting information relating to Cleanfeed. Or it could just be an elaborate April Fools joke, only time will tell…
