By the way, Skype only lets up to 20 people be in a group call at a time, though I kinda doubt there would be that many people in it ahaha xD

if people record their audio individually the end result will probably be higher quality than someone recording other people through the internet, also in that case individual audios could be edited, like if one person is quieter than everyone else

if people aren't concerned though i guess you could try one person recording everyone, but they would have to like record their own mic and also the audio coming out of their speakers so i dunno everyone recording individually might actually be easier??

Tru but we could have a lurker

Like, someone who doesn't participate in conversation but just records.

Or if anyone has a second device they could converse on one and record on the other maybe. :0

But the loss of quality thing does make sense.. I think you're right, we should try a test with one person recording and see how it sounds.. if it's awful revert to everyone recording themselves ^_^

It will also come down to Skype lag which I had admittedly totally forgotten about.   orz

Another site I'm on did a podcast recently; they just had one user record the entire Skype call (plus his own mic, since you don't hear your own voice when Skyping).  That was easiest for them and it sounded fine.   Just make sure everyone introduces themselves at the start, lol; they didn't and so it was confusing since they never said who was who.

Actually, I think if it was just audio, I don't know if I wanna talk after all? I'd still love to listen in as it's being recorded, and I could def do my best to contribute ideas for discussion, but I've changed my mind xP Also, I could still do some graphics to promote it :0

And I still wanna do the yt channel thing aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

There could probably be a few questions that people could send in that the hosts could answer? That way everyone can be a part of it, even if they don't organize/host/edit/whatever :3

(Mobile doesn't let me edit ugh)

All of this podcast will likely be recorded in Skype and edited in Vegas or something. There would probably be two or three regulars & guests I think.

YT would just be good to get us out there & people can listen to us as background noise haha.

thank you, secret santa!! :D

Ideally no more than 5 or 6 people would be on every session (at one time), a few of these being the hosts, and the rest being "guests" that we could change up every new session

as for audio quality, recording over skype would probably be fine? Recording separately might be better quality but we could try both ways and see what happens I suppose :P

We could probably do a quick test run of both ways? That way we wouldn't have to redo an entire podcast session just to see which one is better...?

Skype audio is usually good. I will have really really good internet so I can probably record the podcasts even if I don't talk? (I'm the shyest Skype caller ever)

This would be perfect imo. I was going to offer to record as a test but my Internet isnt good and I struggle not to talk lmao. :)

Agreed. I'd help with recording myself, but my internet is horrible.

I would also be okay with a random meetup and like... idk, some kind of special episode or something??? Like when Welcome to Night Vale releases their live episodes? It woudn't need to be all the time, but a very special occasion or something along those lines. I live in Pennsylvania, so it probably wouldn't take much to go stalk, erm... I mean visit, @Leafpool lol

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.

Yeah I'm totally down for recording the podcast! I can also host the Skype calls - it'll be easier on everyone's internet if someone with high speed hosts. That's also why you have to limit how many people are IN the call, because the more people = more lag/weirdly distorted speech. I think they originally recorded in Skype too.

I'm not a great editor but I think @Darkstar has a good handle on editing things..??



A meetup would be fun, but not for a while - and I don't object to finally meeting u @Lightning :3c I'm sure you're only maybe 5~ hours away.

thank you, secret santa!! :D

I love the idea of this! I've been doing a similar thing with two of my friends, so I already have experience with podcasts, I'd be willing to help and join!
