My first project for 2018 was for the fantastic Trolling With Logic podcast, a show that explores pop culture through a skeptic’s lens. My first episode as audio editor is Show 57, “Pseudoscience vs Justice with Kavin Senapathy.” You can listen to it on TWL’s website, located at this link.
- #057 – Pseudoscience vs Justice with Kavin Senapathy
- #058 – Bad Christian Movie Tropes With Marissa Alexa McCool
- #059 – Why People Reject Evidence, According to Matthew Facciani
- #060 – “Consumed” Movie Review
For this show, I was sent several multitrack files, as each guest had their own microphone. After making a new multitrack session in Audition, I processed each track individually, since the variety of levels in each recording necessitated different approaches. Some tracks were brought up 3 db, others were brought down by 3 db.
Most of this was done using the stock Audition plug-ins, but by sheer luck I picked up SPL De-Verb Plus by Sound Alliance on sale the same day the contract started, so I used that to remove reverb revealed by compressing.
After cleanup, I again went into Logic and used crossfades to remove any mistakes. I also added intro music and a brief outro speech by Nathan, which necessitated using Logic’s automation tools to bring down the level of the music so it wouldn’t override his voice.
