Hi <<First Name>>,

Tuesday night 10 November at 1830 AEDT (that's TOMORROW!), we make good on our CBAA2020 promise to go further into the world of the remote and home studio. And we bring you up to date on some brilliant chat at the Technorama Q&A FB group.

Technorama Tuesday Webinar

So many stations have responded to COVID lockouts by shifting operations away from the studio and to offsite locations.  Leaving the station is not a perfect solution, but home-based broadcasting - like the home office - can work pretty well.  And it's much better than going off the air.

The CBAA session featured Stephen Stockwell (CMTO and triple j), Stephen Wilkinson (Hope 103.2) and Tim Borgas (SACBA) in an all-too-brief overview of what they and their colleagues have been doing in the past months to enable broadcasting for their (and other) stations.

We only had 45 minutes at CBAA.  We knew there wouldn't be enough time to answer all the questions, and the CBAA platform didn't allow direct interaction.  So this is the promised followup, where you can delve deeper into the subject, ask direct questions to the panel, and get your serious fill of tech.

BTW there were some amazing tips that came out of the short session.  Tim's "call yourself to record an interview" was gold. Stephen (both of them) championed "Cleanfeed".  There's so much to learn, and so much that's easy to do.

Click on the graphic above to register; do it right now, then join Stephen, Stephen and Tim on Tuesday 10 Nov at 1830 EADT for Technorama Tuesday: Remore Studio Deep Dive.

Meanwhile, over on Q&A
What's been making news in discussions this past week?

  • Raspberry Pi rocks FNQ.  Evan Wyatt spent the lockdown working on a fascinating project, all based around the world's cheapest self-contained computer platform.  He describes what and how.
  • What's the best file transfer method for mp3 exchange?  Kate Ollie wonders, and the brains trust came up with interesting answers - including Paul Thompson's warning about Dropbox.
  • how hard should your limiter work?  We discovered the difference between level and loud.  They're not the same.
Check out the discussions.  Join the Facebook group if you're not already a member.  The welcome mat is out; all we ask is that you be curious and courteous.
