Saturday Night Takeaway’s Live Finale

When Ant and Dec’s 2023 series of Saturday Night Takeaway reached its conclusion in April, the entire crew – along with 200 prize winners – decamped to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, for the live finale.

Stay Cost Effective and Agile

Advertising jingles are earworms – we all know that. Think Go Compare, or Just One Cornetto, or the universal clarion call of I’m Lovin’ It from McDonald’s. Cleanfeed has become such a staple that TM Studios says it is one of the ‘most important tools in the studio’ for creativity, speed, collaboration and not being tethered to talent in one location.

Starlink for live outside broadcasts

The combination of Cleanfeed and Space X’s Starlink satellite internet constellation is redefining live radio by making it easy and cost effective to broadcast high quality, low latency audio from the remotest of locations. This technological marriage was recently put through its paces by kmfm, a radio station network owned by KM Media Group, which operates throughout Kent.

Parabolic: ADR and Loop Groups

Audio post-production for most feature films and television shows requires time spent on Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR), even when the cast has moved on to other projects in other locations. However, Lew Goldstein, owner of New York City’s Parabolic, is not concerned because he has access to Emmy Award-winning Cleanfeed – the perfect tool to record high quality audio, in real time, from anyone and from anywhere in the world.

A podcast approach that’s straightforward and agile

I haven’t appeared as guest on a podcast in a while, so it was interesting to appear on Chris Smith’s Podtastic Audio recently. Within a few hours, Chris went from recording session to a published podcast that sounds great — a nice reminder that a technical workflow for a podcast needn’t be over-complex to get professional results.

What’s the best way to do a remote interview for a podcast?

This question comes up a lot in forums. and we love it that podcasters are realising the creative potential of having guests from anywhere in the world. Though there’s some useful information to answer the question, there’s also some mis-information, and even downright complicated solutions.

Here at Cleanfeed we’ve got access to a range of broadcast and recording engineers, so let’s use some experience to discuss these options, and perhaps even set the record straight in some cases!

Opening up Cleanfeed Pro for more individuals

Today we’re announcing a small change to our definition of ‘individual’ (previously ‘personal’) use. It means more podcasters and individuals can benefit from Cleanfeed Pro at over 35% off the full price. And our standard Cleanfeed is still available for all, for free, too.

Refining the recording process

In any field, unncessary workflow changes can be frustrating. And, unlike your audio editing software, Cleanfeed isn’t a tool you sit inside of all day every day; instead returning to it just when you need it. So we take extra care in development and design to make sure the workflow is familiar when you do log in; it’s a professional tool, so you need to hit the ground running.

Beta testing with the Apple iPhone

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re now beta testing limited support for Cleanfeed (guests only) on Apple portable iOS devices. This means it’s possible to record or do a live interview with a guest on an iPhone or iPad. The ‘too long, didn’t read’ version of this is… try it! But many people have expressed an interest in the details, so here’s a little more.

Remote pair programming with Cleanfeed

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.

Moving house at the speed of light

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.

Welcome to our blog

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…
