Thanks, I've enjoyed the community we've built up in Discord. It's nice to have an alternative to Twitter and Facebook where we can interact.StargatePioneer wrote: ↑Sat Mar 03, 2018 6:29 amDiscord has been incredibly useful to several podcast communities. I'm so glad that yours has embraced using it. The transmissions Discord is one of the best curated and involved Discords I've had the pleasure of participating in (even though most of the time I'm just a lurker). I enjoy that you can use Discord to connect and record while maintaining a chat room. In fact Transmissions was the community that brought me into Discord just to see what it was all about and I've enjoyed the live broadcasts I've listened to.
It's hosted on the bot's site. They hold the audio for 48 hours after recording then delete it. It's pretty nice. It records the audio in FLAC and a few other formats.StargatePioneer wrote: ↑Sat Mar 03, 2018 6:29 amI'm still leary of Zencastr and it sounds like my concerns have some grounding by your experiences. I didn't know about the bot though! That's an awesome tip! Does the bot record in the cloud somewhere or on someone's PC? Regardless I'm glad you have a couple of hosts recording. This technique has saved me in the past several times!
I've had it for about two years now. No major problems so far, though I added a Simply Sound SS-1 recently to get cleaner gain on my mic.
I haven't used Voicemeeter, but Audio Hijack is an app to record either all system audio, or just a specific app. It is very versatle and lets you route audio in multiple ways and to multiple outputs.
My main PC is a desktop system, that's used for Zencastr, show notes, and everything else I interact with during the recording. I use an older laptop for XSplit and streaming, leveraging a tether to my work phone because it's true unlimited plan has faster upload than my cable modem. The third PC is my 2011 Macbook Pro that I use for Audio Hijack, just for backups.
I think that's answers to all of your questions. One thing I just remembered though, our video streaming is now through Joicaster. It's a service that lets us send one stream to them and they send it out to multiple outputs. For us it's Twitch and YouTube. That's a bandwith saver.
