    Nice review and gotta love those sound effects! What app did you use? Something like Castblaster or?

    sonic soundforge for the recording and premier for the editing. I downloaded a package with 100ds of radiojingles via bittorrent…. but only used two

    Ahh okay, so you did edit afterwards? If you want to try it live, there are some PODcasts progs like that Castblaster. So you can put in realtime sound effects, etc. More like a DJ. But nice DJ package! :)

    no… its done live (you can hear me switch off the jingles, on the keyboard). yet, the background music (wagner and paco de lucia) were added later. The reason is that soundforge creates one wav track and doesn’t allow you to mix tracks. But you can add multiple input channels; one for the jingles and one for the mic, to be recorded on one audio track. Another reason to add the background music later is because I wanted to cut out the boring bitts and make the content more concise (if you do this with music on the background, it will not be coherent)…. in the end I didn’t spend much time on cutting…. I recon I should have though

    anyway, I’ll give Castblaster a go… do you have experience with it?

    Yea, Castblaster works nice, It’s like a mini-DJ tool. Very simple, but quite effective. Too bad I haven’t had a mic for about a year to record anything, but I did use it a couple of times. Although Soundforge does have a lot more soundoptions, and much more options in general. For cut and paste SFone is the best, although I sometimes use CoolEdit for editing.

    But for live, Castblaster is nice, and you get the DJ thrill a bit, because it’s kind of a live feeling.

    cool, I’ll check it. I think for editting and multiple tracks (i.e. guitar, loops and vocals) Emagic Logic Platinum is the best.

    btw my mic sux too… thats why I had to put the background music on, otherwise you would go deaf with high pitched noise
