Just a small thing, you might want to look at a platform other than Skype for doing the podcast over, ep 2 you lost the connection which is pretty common and the levels across everyone are not the same, ep one one of you guys was almost completely inaudible. If you're going to keep it up then invest in all getting the same mic and setting your levels first, it makes a massive difference, I've worked on a lot of podcasts in my industry and they quality of sound is the biggest differentiator in keeping and growing an audience a lot of the time, if you can afford one then get a Blue Snowball as an entry level mic thats easy to use or if you fancy a more pimp setup then a Q2U is a good option but you need a stand and things for that.
Personally really like the content so far, rants are always fun, drinking, swearing and generally being normal people is always a good thing in my book!
Interesting to hear you guys talk about what you like and don't like to play against and how much you want people to stick in the theme. The reason I was drawn to 30k is narrative and the fact things look 'right' the only problem I have is the notion of wysiwyg in gaming, its a new concept to me but it 'seems' from the podacst that this is the norm in 30k?
Cheers FerrusFingers, We really appreciate the feedback, and apart from the sound issues, glad you like the show.
Many many many many moons ago I did a bit of sound engineering work, nothing special, but even doing that back then makes me want to get a really good sound quality for the show. Sadly, right now, we're going to have to stick with our current set up. The fist episode we definitely had an issue with my mic level, it was too late to fix it at the time, but it's been better since. It's been a real pain not being able to play with individual mic levels, but we are stuck with Skype for now, as work and family commitments mean we struggle to all get together for the full evening, and our shows are often recorded in segments. We have talked about getting a proper set up in the future though, but wanted to take it one step at a time before we splash loads of cash on kit.
Hope that the sound is good enough for you to keep listening, we're all enjoying making it.
