Infendo Radio: The technical difficulty edition

Infendo

This week lots of things went wrong. Took me longer than expected to edit the podcast, I still haven’t figured out how best to upload the podcast to you fine folks, I went out to the local brewery one too many times. All this adds up to delays, and delays are bad. I intendo (see what I did there?) to make it up to you. Chris and I have vowed to record another podcast this week, and I hope to have it up this weekend. Double podcast weekend!

This week I changed up the audio for the podcast. Eugene’s voice track is on the left, and Chris has his voice track on the right. We need your input on whether or not this is a good thing. Please let us know in the comments if you like the voice tracks split in stereo, or if you would prefer a mono track. Thanks for listening, and please send us your questions and comments to tips@infendo.com.

Eugene lives in New Mexico and has been a life long gamer since getting his hands on an NES. Always partial to Nintendo, Eugene has made it a point to keep informed on all things Mario.

  1. Huh, maybe it’s just my connection here… I can’t get access to it on iTunes, or on site.. πŸ™

  2. Link fixed. I didn’t call it the technical difficulty podcast for nothing!

  3. Nice podcast again guys… having my non-question mentioned was unexpected! I’ll definitely have to leave a review now! No worries about the lack of another shameless plug… I don’t update that blog enough anyway – two posts in four years! I’ll put some more time into it πŸ™‚
    Regarding the audio, stereo worked well… though I’m not too fussed.

    Keep up the good work… look forward to the next show!

    PS: this is not a question πŸ˜‰

  4. Best one yet! The stereo took a moment to get used to, but ended up working great. You may have just talked me into trying the 3DS Tales game, if I ever stop playing KIU.

  5. You guys crack me up! The audio was fine πŸ™‚

  6. Looking forward for a double podcast weekend!! Can’t wait to start downloading!

  7. Splitting the voices up is a great idea.

  8. good podcast! If you like Tales of the Abyss, check out Graces f on the PS3. It just came out a few weeks ago and it looks really good even though its a Wii port/localization. I’m 10 hours in and I’m loving it!

  9. I just wanted to throw my two cents in that I didn’t care for the left-right split. It made the volume feel quite diminished. Something less drastic, like maybe diminishing the volume for the opposite ear by 75% or so, rather than full muting it. I don’t know if that’s easy enough to do to be worth the effort or not.

    And sorry to continue the negativity, but there was a pretty consistent mouth noise from Eugene, maybe gum-chewing. As well as some noise from Eugene that comes from fiddling with the mic. I’m not mad about it, but I’d just like you to be aware that these things are picked up in the recording, and if it continues then I’ll honestly find myself annoyed with the whole situation.

  10. Quality wasn’t good guys, didn’t like the voice splitting but you still make a good show just improve the audio.

  11. Splitting is not nice. It’s already very uneven audio.

  12. Splitting took some getting used to, especially when using headphones. Though I do like that you tried something new. No wrong doing in that.
    I’d suggest the same WesFX said though: not muting the opposite ear completely. I feel like I’m going deaf from left to right, especially when wearing some headphones using noise cancellation.

    And I liked how you edited the ‘Infendo Radio is on now’ part. It looks a lot more like a digital in-game voice, which is a plus, to me.

    Sometimes there’s a drop in volume or a not too consistent quality during the talks, but that could just be the microphone. I imagine it’s not that easy to keep the quality high the whole time – one’d need professional equipment for that! Keep it up guys.
