Is the RØDECaster an automixer? Three 48 kHz Alliance awards


14: Allan Tépper gives out three awards from the 48 kHz Alliance, with audible acceptance comments in some cases:

  • Chris Curran of Podcast Engineering School, whose show is distributed at 48 kHz as of several episodes.
  • RØDECaster Pro, which works exclusively with our standard 48 kHz sampling rate, and with 24-bit resolution too. See several RØDEcaster Pro articles in ProVideo Coalition, and here is the B&H link.
  • Hindenburg Journalist Pro, Allan Tépper’s favorite multitrack editing software for audio storytellers on conventional computers like Mac and Windows. Get a free trial and discount here.

Then Curtis Judd of Learn Light and Sound joins Allan Tépper to give each one’s opinions about how the RØDECaster Pro performs as an automatic mixer, even though it is not marketed as one. They also talk about the RØDECaster Pro in general, and the very few details they’d like changed.

Adobe Project Rush, LumaFusion & more with Cielo de la Paz


On BeyondPodcasting episode 4, Allan Tépper converses with Cielo de la Paz (in English) about Adobe’s new Project Rush cross-platform app, how it compares with LumaFusion and other software and hardware for mobile audio and video production. Cielo de la Paz is an award winning multimediographer and the creator of The Storyographist.

  • Project Rush cross platform (first article here) vs LumaFusion (several articles here) being potentially more advanced. Motion graphics, camera app in Project Rush, Raw/Log mode in LumaFusion with raw/log mode. FiLMiC Pro’s (several articles here) raw/log mode and integration with DJ Osmo gimbal. Multiple framerates.
