  • Better Audio Compass Tests

    Michael W. Dean and Neema Vedadi do 45 minutes of across-the-Internet tests with the beta of Audio Compass. This time we realized we have to disconnect and reconnect to get the program to take the changes. (Do’h!). We liked the sound of these tests so much we’re making it an actual Feens episode again, because we are a teaching hospital. And it will give you an idea of what we go through to make this the best-sounding cast in the world.

    The audio was recorded on a Zoom h2, direct in, normalized after, and some long gaps were cut out, but other than that, it’s exactly as we made it, and it shows you the wonder of how the new and improved Feens will sound.

    If you want to skip all the testing and go right to where we finally find the best settings, that starts 38 and 40 seconds minutes in. The settings we finally settled on that worked great for our cable Internet connections, with Neema in Austin and me recording in Casper, Wyoming, are this:

    Mono
    Buffer: 150 ms
    Codec: Opus
    Sample Rate: 24,000
    Bit rate: 32 bit
    Quality: Super Wide Band (12 kHz)

    Below is a screenshot of our optimum settings:
