Hey!! Those are our engineers! Craig, Liz and Rob! Working to make public radio sound more even across all the shows.
This is a great read (with examples) about mixing, measuring loudness, and the problems of standardization.“All these individual shows are fairly consistent on a daily basis, it’s just they’re not consistent with each other,” said Byers, a whip-smart APM engineer who spoke to me from St. Paul. - See more at: http://www.current.org/2014/07/why-youre-doing-audio-levels-wrong-and-why-it-really-does-matter/#sthash.9IL2XrT0.dpuf
Loudness standards for everyone!
Some of my wonderful colleagues are quoted (and photographed) here.
This is what I deal with now. All I’m sayin though is, thank GOD for floating breaks on witsradio.
The proposed redesign of the NPR brodcast clocks, with morning newscasts and longer underwriting credits.
Have you seen our new clocks? They’re awesome!
