Free NPR Audio Training Online

A primer on audio issues with tips on preferably preventing them or trying to fix them after. This is fantastic if you use a microphone to record anything, for audio, video, music, podcasts, whatever. It will make you think first and have (less) problems later.

At the very least, you’ll learn the vocabulary so you can act all knowledgeable about things you are still learning. At the most, you’ll get better at what you do when creating cool things and improve your process.

And it has example audio clips for everything being discussed.


P.S. You’re still learning aren’t you? If you are still alive, it’s really the only way to go. And a bit of knowledge knocks the crap out of that self-doubt that keeps you in your shell.

P.P.S. Free. Go!

Set Audio Tracks In Encore

I wanted to add a second audio track option (maybe a third, I’m not done yet!) to the Blu-Ray and DVD discs I am working on, so I did a little Google-ing and found this clean clear walk-through online below results that were come-ons for paid tutorials (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but if I am in the middle of a project, I don’t have time to watch a bunch of lessons and why would I sign up for a free trial or pay for that and start the clock ticking right away?)

Changing Audio Tracks in Encore

I don’t expect to be in the habit of just reposting other people’s links, but when I do I will give credit where it’s due, and this link will take you to Mike Gentilini, Jr.’s page, which I will be examining more sometime after I burn a bunch of discs.

I do plan to share solutions that were hard for me to find and especially useful in a crunch, in hopes of making them easier for other people (and maybe me) to find them later.


P.S. I bet these would work for subtitles too if you chose subtitles instead of audio assets.

P.P.S. Am I the only one who worries that when you set an audio track to something else it will stick that way and you will watch every movie from now on in Portuguese even though you speak English, and barely remember your college Spanish course – which doesn’t really overlap with Portuguese even though they are both romance languages?

P.P.P.S. Romanian, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese. A chant I still remember from a high school test as all the students were last-minute prepping.
