Current Mood: happy happy

I did the sound thing at the block party here at the quad and it went really well. It's a whole new thing as it comes to audio; if you do it well, you're always tweeking things and changing them so that you don't get annoying feedback. People said that I did a good job, so I guess I was a success. I didn't get to go to Institute, because I thought I was going to have to help another band, and then it sprinkled a little, so it didn't happen :(. So I came back about 8 and didn't do much after that. I'm hoping that it won't be pouring too much tomorrow if I have to get to Bell. I may have to get there on the bus, because I'm not planning on walking there in the rain, especially since I don't have a raincoat (I lost it sometime last year). That's all now. Still pretty happy :).

doing that kind of audio can be a challenge. Been there done the high school dances about 20 years ago and in an acoustically live venue like that gym it was not easy but you could tell when I did those dances and when some other twit did them.

Couldn't agree with you more on the fact that all games are off for dances and live bands. Radio is dynamic, but I can do that. Dances, I'm getting used to, but live bands, mostly because sometimes they can't master the art of singing into a microphone at a constant volume, require some skill at twiddling knobs and sliding sliders. Causes much more stress than radio in my opinion.

Wonder if some type of AGC would work to keep those levels normalized or might that be more trouble than it would be worth in the long term?

I'd agree with you on the AGC, but I don't have a hardware compressor, so I'd probably have to run it through a sound card and back into the board. Could be done but might be more work than it's worth. If I did this a lot, I'd get a rack and put s few things in it so that I could do this kind of thing.

You'd have to keep the speech out of the audio stream and that would require an external synth More trouble than it's worth at this point.
