Musical Mayhem

Audio recording. It's an interesting world to delve into should you have the desire but like anything technical, it can be intimidating if you don't know where to start. This series will mostly be me rambling on about tips and tricks that I've learned over the years that will help you with getting started so you can produce your own material. The focus will be heavily geared towards music because that's how I got into this shitstorm in the first place however most of what I discuss can be used for any type of audio recording adventure.

Episode Details

Episode Number: 33
Episode Title: A Lesson in Sample Rates
Released: Sun, 16 Feb 2014 22:00:07
Length: 00:13:11

In today's episode I learned a lesson about different sample rates in Audacity. If you have two clips that were recorded at different sample rates, Audacity will only be able to play back both recordings according to the lowest sample rate. Which is why today's episode sounds so low fi compared to what I normally sound like when recordings haha. This episode was recorded using the Android recording app I have been busy working on and where I didn't specify a sample rate it defaulted to 8000 Hz. Needless to say I know what I'm adding to the program next, a much higher sample rate. If you're still reading and wanted to know what I talked about it's my new iRig and the new Ubuntu Studio setup I have in my living room.
