    Quoted from ZMeny:

    The Pinball Show Episode 73: Getting Connected Insider

    I know you spend a ton of time on your podcasts, so take this or leave it, but two things will make your recordings more listenable immediately.

    1. Either EQ so the "P" pops are lighter or just clip them out. Clipping them is preferable because it won't affect your voice tone for the rest of the recording when you aren't popping. Scanning the waveform, it's pretty obvious to see when the mic's been popped with a hard P, so easy to find and remove. In the below example, the highlighted part where the waveform gets dark and irregular is a "popped" P. I made a comparison wav to demonstrate how much nicer it is without the pop, but then I realized I can't upload wavs to pinside. Ah, well. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

    2. If you did just a smidge of compression on the show mp3 so it wasn't crunching the red on the peaks. You can compress it so lightly it comes within 0.1dB of the max. Right now it rings the bell a lot.

    So it turns out talking into a mic is easy but producing a quality sounding podcast is really hard. I'm now on my third mic and spent many hours trying to find the best settings and tools to use to make sure every episode sounds clear and loud enough without clipping. I do about 1/100th of the editing Zach does and I still feel like it is a ton of work. With all that said your post was very useful and something I will look at for my own podcasts.

    Quoted from joelbob:

    Yeah, people don't realize how something so simple can be so hard until they've done it. I've done decades of work in a recording studio and popped Ps by actors are my bugaboo. A good popper stopper on the mic helps, but talking slightly parallel to the mic rather than directly into the mic helps A LOT. That way the excess air from a hard "P" doesn't go into the mic/stopper (which really isn't a stopper but more of a diffuser) but past it.

    Thanks for the feedback buddy. I’m not hearing a popped P at 42 second mark but likely I have levels a hair too high. Tough to reduce them because then people on some playback devices say it doesn’t get loud enough unless they are using headphones. I use a Shure SM7B which are not known for popping P’s/S’s and to my knowledge it’s recommended not to use a pop filter for it because it’s not needed. Will continue to fine tune audio though and find settings that are buttery smooth.

    The example at 41 seconds was the "P" in the word "Pinball" when talking about the Halloween release.

    But you're DEFINITELY popping Ps all over the place all podcast long. 100%. Trust me. It's blatant on the audio (dunno why you can't hear it, maybe inadequate speaker range?), but the waveform doesn't lie. ANY mic will pop when faced with a wall of excess air. That's why talking slightly parallel to the mic will alleviate most of it (especially if you're not using a popper stopper). We used $3000 mics in the studio and had popper stopper on them, but STILL had to talk slightly off center on them to not pop them occasionally.

    An article I grabbed about this summed up the podcaster issue:
    "P-Pops seem to be increasingly common on the radio and in podcasts, possibly because producers and engineers are trusting too much in their microphones’ (inadequate) built-in pop-filtering. Or perhaps they’re monitoring on small speakers, which might not fully reproduce the low frequency bump that is the signature of a P-Pop. Checking your mix on speakers with a wide frequency response, or on headphones, can be crucial in catching problems you might otherwise miss.

    Some large-diaphragm dynamic mics, such as classic radio-host mics like the Electrovoice RE-20 or Shure SM7B have mesh or foam wind screens built in, that serve to mitigate plosives. BUT it’s still quite easy to P-Pop those mics, you’ll hear it almost every day on the radio."

    Are you not using any audio compression on the mp3? That explains a lot. I mean, you don't want a Death Magnetic situation (http://recordinghacks.com/2008/12/20/metallica-wins-the-loudness-wars/) where they famously went totally crazy with the compression and made a death beam of sound with all volume and no dynamics, but you can definitely make the audio loud enough without riding past the peak indicator all the time. The flat areas at the top of these waveform examples below are clipped - maxed out audio where the actual peak was cut off because it went past the top. You can avoid that by recording lower volume, normalizing/compressing, then raising the volume to fill the waveform space. But because you've compressed, there won't be extreme peaks that get cut off, clipping the waveform.

    I'll email you some examples.

    Clipping audio waveforms in the podcast all over the place:
    clipped audio (resized).jpg

    Now with .1dB gap, so it will not max out and peak the meter, this stops the reds, but doesn't improve the audio. Normalizing/compression will make better audio so the tips of the waveforms are not blocked off like square ends:

    Triple Drain Pinball Podcast has become one of the better podcasts for sure. I like that pinball is the topic and that it stays on topic. The tournament talk and strategy is interesting even though I'm not interested in playing in tournament. The segments about wizard mode tips and strategies has been helpful to me learning about some of my games and things to attempt.

    Here's an endorsement. I don't listen at 1.5x speed like most other pinball podcasts (get to the point!) and I only used the 30 sec skip a few times....just to skip the opening and skipping the Tom songs segment.

    Silverball Chronicles Episode 17: Steve Ritchie Part III: The Return...to Stern

    Silverball Chronicles with Ron & David

    Visit Our Silverball Swag Store
    https://silverballswag.com/collections/silverball-chronicles

    Episode Summary
    When we last left Steve Ritchie, pinball was dead. It was done. Williams, gone. Bally, gone. Gottlieb/Premier, gone. The last manufacturer standing was Sega which ended up being sold to one Gary Stern and became today’s Stern Pinball Inc. Steve Ritchie was ready to make a return to pinball after a hiatus, but the pinball landscape was different than when he left. He soon showed everyone he still has the touch.

    Join us this month for a super-packed episode as Ron and David talk about Terminator 3, that strange Elvis mech, the epic Spiderman game, everyone getting let go in 2008, the perfect version of Terminator 2, aka AC/DC, a section about Star Trek that goes on far too long, what the hell happened to Star Wars, the underrated Black Knight toy, the barren Led Zeppelin, and the recent Jersey Jack coup!

    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Mini-Interview w/Homepin's Mike

    He really needs to hire a PR person for Homepin, let them handle all of it, and stop doing interviews.

    WHY would the company launching a new pin talk about the 27" hi-res screen on it and then in the same sentence say he's not a fan of it?
    WHY would he talk about negatives about the machine and not doing product pictures and gameplay pre-launch, aside from art.
    WHY would he go out of his way to hide who did the design and code for the machine (except that he was involved in both)?
    It's the weirdest launch of a machine ever. Even weirder than Thunderbirds.

    RIP Spinal Tap Pinball.

    In addition you can‘t blame him for promising you the best game ev0r and not delivering. - Not that this keeps anyone from bickering.

    Refreshing to make a pin with features he hates? If he hates them, why is he doing them?

    Refreshing to hide who is designing and coding his pins (except to say he had a hand in both)? How is LESS information refreshing?

    I'll need some clarification on what is refreshing about any of that.

    Yeah, I've never heard a company rep suggest that certain people SHOULDN'T buy their product.

    I mean it's good if he wants to set expectations on rules depth, but man don't just flat out tell people not to buy it! Let your buyers make up their own minds. Reminds me of when Mike suggested that he didn't want Americans to buy Thunderbirds. The funny thing is, Thunderbirds was actually aired in parts of the US. My mom and uncles all remembered watching it growing up in the 60s and 70s.

    Also, he conflates people who like deep rules with tournament players. They aren't necessarily the same thing. Plenty of competitive players like relatively simple games like Meteor or Hoops. And plenty of them don't actually own games at home. Likewise, plenty of non-competitive players like deep rules, because they only play at home.

    I don't think anyone is expecting any Homepin to be even the best midrange pin ever, let alone the overall best. But to hear the guy SELLING them say he hates things about the pin HE'S MAKING is crazy, and not refreshing at all.

    Phew. Alright, Zach. That was quite a load you dumped at the end of your show.

    You're saying TWIP was being paid a "substantial" amount of money by DeepRoot, without disclosing the monetary relationship? Was TWIP advertising DR? Or was the money in exchange for favorable coverage?

    Didn't Jeff go do a behind-the-scenes piece on DR... a factory tour of sorts... first? Are you saying that info was delivered with a green-colored lens?

    Sorry for any confusion. I was not a part of what the agreement entailed other than it was a monthly payment/donation/gift to TWIP. I am not saying that it was for favorable coverage. I simply don’t know, but I’ve heard Jeff be critical of deeproot so I’d like to think that wasn’t ever the case.

    Another terrific episode. Really appreciated the transparency regarding the TWIP situation.

    Deeproot did sponsor some of the monthly TWIP videos that are broadcast on TWIPs YouTube channel. They're still up and deeproot is listed as a sponsor in the beginning of the videos. I know Sept. 2020 is one of them. Don't know if the sponsorship went beyond that or not.

    Awesome, can’t wait. Spending an hour cooking dinner is always better with a good pinball podcast in the background.

    Better off buying a premium and getting it powder coated the color of your choice. I admit the mirrored backglass is an upgrade but not worth the difference. If you have to add sales tax or buy the topper, your premium will cost $10k and it will be available in October. And it’s not even Xmas yet.

    Looking forward to the day when every podcast stops discussing Deeproot. Don't care and at this point everyone is just reporting on the same stale information.

    Normally I agree but the foil reflective cab decals on Godzilla LE they teased looks pretty damned amazing. Of course you won't see it stuck in a line of pins but if you have a spot for it to sit exposed I think it would be pretty amazing. It's almost impossible to get one but...

    The reflective or special decals on BM66 SLE, Maiden LE and Munsters LE have all received a number of less than favorable ratings from owners because they tend to “fall apart”. I don’t think there is durability. Maybe compare these to Spooky’s butter cabinets. Those stay pretty perfect until you move it and bang it against a wall for self-inflicted damage

    Thanks!
    I apologise up front to all Millionaire owners.
    Look, I felt so guilty I’ve even made a start on resurrecting my one! So everyone can again enjoy the magic that is - Millionaire.

    When you got a bunch of them, they fit where they can.

    Talking of Millionaire - I’ve been trying to fix this weird special solenoid issue (the slings lock on even though things appear correct ..) and I LOLLLLED when I saw the message I must have put on the screen some years ago. I don’t even remember doing it.

    Only half way through the Godzilla episode so far (stupid work) but I'd like to throw in a request for a "I believe the balls rest on the chin of the roof" T shirt please.
