We’re between the UK and the US this summer. And with weather in London that’s been almost like Los Angeles, it’s time for a newsletter. Whether you’re broadcaster, podcaster or producer, here’s a roundup of some of the things we’ve been doing recently.
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.
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.
Pondering about joining Cleanfeed? Perhaps you’re thinking.. ‘hrm, I wonder how I should set things up?’. Well, let me put to rest some myths and help give you a better understanding of how Cleanfeed works and how you can get started.
Cleanfeed makes it super easy to send and receive high quality audio over the Internet, so the possibilities of what you can do are endless!
I recently did an interview with Live Sound International magazine and it’s sister publication online. Journalist Nicholas Radina and I chatted for over an hour on a Friday night a few weeks back and in full studio quality — using Cleanfeed of course!
For Cleanfeed to remain relevant, competitive and useful, we regularly attend outside events.
The event I cover below is one undertaken for a community station, Radio Wey (http://www.radiowey.org).
The Walton on Thames Festival of Light is a well attended Christmas event which celebrates Christmas; includes a festive Christmas market, the turning on of lights and most importantly, the light parade itself.
So you’ve used Cleanfeed, fallen in love with it (don’t lie, I know you have), and you may have potentially asked yourself, “What’s the deal – shouldn’t Cleanfeed make any dedicated hardware?”
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!)
