I'm editing @librelounge We have an on the ground recorded show that has sub-optimal audio.

I'm wondering about releasing it with a warning about how bad the audio is, because the content is still good.

Would love opinions! Feedback?

@emacsen Is it stuff like background noise? If so I've had some luck with Audacity noise reduction in the past.

If recording quality yeah there's only so much you can squeeze out of that. :)

@downey It's nothing that can be automatically removed. It's stuff like a child yelling in the background, someone breathing near the mic while someone else is talking, or someone rubbing their pants.


Ah, human stuff 😆

I guess go for the up-front warning, unless it's fairly easy to schedule an online/phone re-recording?

@emacsen @downey content++

but now I want closed-captioning

As a listener I would rather get the content with the warning than not get the episode. At least for a content heavy show like Libre Lounge. For more casual shows maybe not.

@emacsen I think a warning is all that is needed. audio quality is nice to have, but fun, intelligent, and interesting content is what really creates a quality show. :)

@liw @emacsen Shows come out on Friday! We know you can make it until then!

@emacsen @librelounge that's fine as long as one can hear/understand.
