(Milinda Arambawela) #42

Freedom ok :+1: Music ???

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #43

Any music engineers here ? Or shall we look for a music . ?

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #44

Hope there are no music engineers . So we will try to find a free theme music soon. BTW what about the gear? Can we get some recommendations from any podcasters available ? Some clip on mics and a budget mixer ?
Finally any idea on the place. Should be a bit silent place. I would find a more permenet place in a month or two. Until that we need a place to kick this off.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #45

Tomorrow ill come back with some theme music.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #46

Sorry couldnt check the music as I was overloaded with work today. Mostly tomorow too. But will definitly come back on the weekend.

Any other progress guys ? Logo ? Place ? Gears ?

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #47

Guys shall we work this out.?

(Dilusha) #48

Logo eka mona wageda wenn ona?:hushed:

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #49

Have to include logo and “a podcast by” wording

If the otherpart relates to word “freedom” , thats great.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #50

So guys any idea about a gear ? Mics and mixers. ?

(Lahiru Himesh Madusanka) #51

I used to have a Blue Yeti Snowball and it was one of the greatest microphones for Podcasts. But it was really fragile imho.

Don’t think we’d need mixers if we’re going to record via online conversations. If we were to host the podcast at a location, we’d need a mixer.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #52

Yeti is good… anyway shall we do this. Ots dragging too long.

(Milinda Arambawela) #53

@dhanushka shell we continue this.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #54

Good idea… shall we start by finding some gears. ? Anyone wjocan find couple of mics and a mixer ?

(Milinda Arambawela) #55

Aiya, shell we create a topic list for the podcast.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #56

Sure. Will try to compile tomorrow . Also we really need to find some gear as well.
after the gear, will be able to start the first recording . :slight_smile:

The above is a suggestion. The pilot is an Intro to the podcast. The first Episode is the actual first one. In a normal episode, I thought of having 20 minutes of FOSS news and the rest on a Selected Topic.

Any suggestions?

PS: Can we start this soon. So we can go ahead with the First podcast on New year start. (Pilot on End of December)
