Last night I put the final touches on the Gangplank Studios setup. Well, "final" may be going to far. I plugged everything we had in and got it all working. Lots more things to do (like get the spot server working, piping audio back to that machine... yada yada), but it is functional.
To prove it, I recorded a quick conversation with Jimmy and Sunny. No, I'm not putting it up. Well... maybe not. We'll see how I can make it sound in post.
We do have a needs list, if anyone is interested into contributing. This is designed to be a community studio, open to the public, with podcasting pros available to come teach, help you record... whatever. So your help helps many. Here's what we need (so far):
- Pop filters
Sound deadening materials
Headphone amp (for 4)
We'll take "ghetto" style of the items above, save the last three, in which we're happy to take used. We can also take items "on loan", as long as you understand that some damn fool may spill something. In which case I'll break some knuckles, but if the studio can't afford to buy it on our own, we can't afford to pay you back if something bad happens.
I'm out of town for the weekend, but will be ready to start working on groovy stuff when I get back!
Props to Luz for snapping shots and adding to the merriment!
