Maybe one of your listeners has an old one they’d donate.
It would cut down on all those ear-piercing distortion-inducing outbursts from that shouting dwarf fellow 😀January 15, 2005 at 7:14 pm #562486
On the plus side, the mp3pro plugin makes a WORLD of difference! I was pleasantly surprised by it.January 15, 2005 at 7:37 pm #562487Dragonkin

Aww… but Balazaar Attacks are part of the fun.January 15, 2005 at 7:52 pm #562488
Me LOUD? never!
I’m just big-lunged for my height is all!
Surely you wouldn’t want to compress a poor dwarf any further would you? 😀
P.S. Do you have any more information on compressors/limiters? (I can think of a Halfling who I could use it on…)January 16, 2005 at 4:54 am #562489
Don’t really know all that much about it, truth be told. But for a quick test try running the whole show through Audacity’s compressor filter set around 3:1, either before, or after denoising (try both). Fiddle with the threshhold and see if it helps.January 16, 2005 at 5:03 am #562490
Googling around, I found this, which you can use in Audacity via the VST enabler:January 16, 2005 at 3:23 pm #562491
Useful explanations of typical audio gadgets:January 23, 2005 at 2:48 am #562492
Oh yeah, another quick thing that might improve the audio would be to tack up some old quilts around the walls, and maybe toss a couple on the floor if it’s not carpeted.May 19, 2005 at 3:01 pm #562493Anonymous

I admit it, I am a Balazar fan. The outbursts are the primary reason I listen. That and the GM’s fine asides about things such as “poor old Buglak” and whatnot.

Compression would be nice, yes.. Everytime someone shrieks, old ladies look terrified in my direction on the train 😀 .May 21, 2005 at 3:51 pm #562495Anonymous

By the way, Paul, what do you use for the voice of Kodo? And where can I buy one?December 29, 2005 at 2:54 pm #562496
Remiss of me to miss this, sorry!
The Voice Changer I picked up in Shetland several years ago, from a Toy Shop in the big city of Lerwick. They are generally available (in the UK) around Halloween in the Childrens ‘dress-up’ areas. About Â£8 or so.
Some of our new equipment has a Limiter, but we’re saving pennies to buy a half-decent mic that will plug into it.
After we’ve got the last of the new equipment Yog-Radio at least will be moving up to 48KBPS/44Khz without the need for MP3pro formatting. The Masks game will use the new equipment, but likely not at the higher bit rate unless the BitTorrent idea takes off.
Egg Nog, mmmmmm! 🙂

I know nobody wants to, but I’ll say this yet again. WMA is a good audio format – and can be played back even by Ipods (through conversion).
a 32kbps WMA audio quality is roughly equivalent to a 64kbps MP3. It would save download time, and Ipod is the only player which requires a quick conversion (automatically done through itunes anyway) to playback. All the other players generally play it natively. Why is WMA better than MP3Pro? Because Mp3pro cannot be converted without a proprietary converter, without losing the Pro quality. WMA is always good.December 29, 2005 at 3:44 pm #562498Rillietann

Fantastic! A Shure SM58 would be ideal for some of the recordings we’re planing, thank you!
