Thank you so much for joining us for an episode of Entangled Things!
Here's a note from our sound engineer, Ahren, regarding recording setup and recommendations.
If you have any questions, or would like to run through anything with Ahren, please don't hesitate to reach out and he can be available to meet and test your setup prior to recording.
We use Zencastr, a web-based recording platform to record episodes. You will receive a link to the recording session in your meeting invite. Here are some pointers that will help you get prepared ahead of time and make the recording process as smooth as possible.
Mac OS 10.14 or higher
10GB+ of free hard drive space
8GB+ of RAM
Up-to-date version of Brave, Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge
At least 5Mbps, preferably 10Mbps+
Headphones - Headphones are necessary when recording with Zencastr to ensure that each voice is isolated in the final recording
Microphone - A separate microphone is preferred but earbud/mic combos work as well. In order to prevent audio leakage to the mic, please keep your earphone volume turned down to a low but comfortable setting
Simply open the link provided to you in the meeting invite on a laptop or desktop computer that meets the above requirements
Open Zencastr in a regular window or tab, not in incognito mode or private mode
Granting microphone access
You will be prompted to allow access to your microphone. Click to allow microphone access and then your host will be able to start recording.
