Happy Holidays, everyone!
Between moving and holidays, Bryan has not released anything via podcast in about a month. Despite this, a ton of story and audio work has been done behind the scenes, including an upgrade to the mic setup Abbie talks about in Episode 15. The final chapter of Bryan’s novel was trashed and fully re-written, and he is deep in the edits now. A few facts about the story:
Expect to hear more about the kind of work being done to prepare for a large scale production like this. The next Fullcast Podcast will be primarily about the making of Bryan’s latest Dunesteef story, including specific voice effects with audio examples. It is a wonderful (long!) story and should be well worth the wait.
2011 will be a busy and productive year. We look forward to sharing it with our awesome and supportive audience!

Bryan and Abbie talk with James Durham, author/producer of FETIDUS, about his podcasting journey, producing music for a fullcast story, and the merits of a number of production options for both music and podcast mixing.
Bryan also mentioned HG World.
Zombies! In a departure from our usual format, Bryan goes step by step through the building of a detailed zombie-filled background using free sound effects. The work was done with Adobe Audition 3, though many of the principles can be universally applied. The scene will appears in the Dunesteef story found here: Chemo: The Condemned
The Freesound Project for free sound effects.
Building the Pod is a great podcast about working with Adobe Audition.
