Podcast blues

Two hours of unsuccessful fiddling about (which is a highly technical term) have yielded absolutely no fruit.

There’s a problem with the config.

I have eliminated The World’s Fastest Laptop, the software, the audio/usb converter and the four cables between the audio/usb converter and The World’s Fastest Laptop.

Which leaves, as possibilities, the mixer deck, the microphone or the microphone-to-mixer deck cable. I really hope it isn’t the mixer deck!

My money is on the microphone-to-mixer deck cable (he said optimistically).

So a trip to Maplin’s is on the cards, I’ll take the microphone and cable and – hopefully – find out which one is giving out the horrendous earth-buzz which records over and swamps all audio signals.

Once I’ve got the problem sorted I’ll get Episode 31 recorded; there are a lot of things to go through, so I’m quite anxious!

Anyway, the bottom line: normal podcast service will be resumed as soon as possible. And by ‘as soon as possible’ I mean that if I can fix the problem today then Episode 31 will be released no later than tomorrow morning.

Thanks. And sorry.

    Sorry Mash.

    Bearing in mind that 99.9% of the listeners get it through iTunes or some other podcatcher, the podcast website has been hit to buggery today. Presumably by listeners looking for the missing episode. I really feel quite shitty about not being able to get it out there on time.
