MaAH: T-Minus 1 – Seeker

T-Minus 1 is a short story set in the Land of Caern, detailing events that marked the beginning of the “War for Caern” (some twenty-five years before the events of Murder at Avedon Hill).

I hope the sound quality of this episode is considerably better than previous episodes. I’m trying to decide whether I want to encode at a 96 or 128 bitrate. This file is at 96 kbps. Any feedback on the sound quality of this episode would be greatly appreciated!

    Mate the audio good at 96 bitrate but i think you should go 128 bitrate. Cool story thou, keep up the good work………….

    The sound quality is good. Although I would not go lower than 96 kbs but since the spoken word is the main focus here you should be fine. Now if music was your focus then I would recommend the 128 kbs. (That is what my show is at.)

  3. Thanks guys!

    I created a 128 kbps version and can really tell the difference between the two, and the file size only went from 31 MB to 39 MB… I think I’ll go with 128 from now on.

    I still get some voice distortion… I think I’m still too close to the mic. But if I’m not that close to the mic my levels are low… still fuzzy if I have the mixer settings (completely) correct.

    Ok, so two years later, and I’ve finally come to MaAH. I was compelled to leave a comment due to a funny coincidence this morning. I was listening to T-minus 1: The Seeker on my iPhone when my son woke up. I paused the story by clicking the headphone play/pause button so I could take my son’s breakfast order. When I clicked the button again a few minutes later, I was momentarily confused by music coming through the earbuds. I was further confused when I looked at the screen and saw the title of “The Seeker”. Then I had to laugh. Somehow, when I paused playback, then hit play, the iPod app had reverted back to my music library, which I have on random. Coincidentally (or not?), the song playing was The Seeker, by The Who.

  5. That rocks, Emil! :-)
