signed someone trying to make sure they don’t forget how to speak Spanish lol,

Cause like if I have children one day and they only speak English, that’s when you know America’s Design has won

random thought, but if you learned a language other than English when you were a kid, try and keep that knowledge of that language alive

with me blabbing about it, this weeks shades of brown are encoded as such

regular feed: 48kbps AAC CBR, should have chapter metadata

Patreon feed, ~120kbps (logic gives you range) AAC VBR, should have chapter metadata

am absolutely open to feedback on if the bitrates are wrong here, they sound find to me but I'm using a baseline of 64kbps CBR mp3 as my guideline, but the regular feed file is under 30megs for an hour of audio so I think it's the right balance

holy shit excuse me this has been on the Mac app store since it snow leopard or whenever the App Store came out, this apps changelog goes back to 2008

this thing looks literally a decade old but I mean it works, the UI makes sense, and even though its like a decade old its still getting updated frequently, so how much can I complain?

Show thread

(I was able to find an app that's still updated that will do chapters for an m4a (aac) file without re-encoding it, sometimes not using windows is nice)

tbqh I'm kinda interesting in seeing if there's any software that'll easily let you tag an aac file since I can absolutely get way smaller file sizes for better quality with that

Show thread

there's like a 10 meg delta (oddly the VBR encode is using more data (!) than the CBR), but I think in 2022 it's ok to be doing 40mb for an hourish of audio)

Show thread

I think 48kbps is probably the lowest I'd wanna go, but the 64kbps vbr encode sounds pretty damn great, especially compared to a 64kbps CBR encode

Show thread

testing out a 32kbps VBR mp3 encode for the podcast this week

canceled my birthday dinner reservations and instead the game plan to just buy $200 worth of oxtails and go hard

YouTubers, I say this with love

either use a shotgun mic or other microphone meant for video

OR

just include your XLR desk mic in the shot, I promise you it's not distracting

too many video producers using desk mics for videos and just turn the gain to 100% to try and get some kind of pickup from 10 feet away while capturing the whole room

personally? I'm ok keeping vbr encodes even if chapter markers are now inaccurate, but I'm absolutely open to feedback on that

Show thread

update: oh yeah all of the chapters are off by 5 seconds, the rumblings I've heard about VBR encodes not playing with the mp3 chapter metadata seems to be true

blah, the perfectionist in me is annoyed at it, but the producer in me is so happy with the quality for the file size
