This is exactly why I think you dumbing down your videos is a bad thing. You have grown so much and now there are many new people that don't know the reasons why you do the things you do. Instead of getting upset in WAN show and explaining everything where no one that needs to know will find it, why can't you add all that information in the videos. Be more detailed and explain the process at the end during add spots.

Audio is soooo much better.

 

Question though; With that interface, why not have two microphones and have stereo? I don't mean one on each person, just a little ambience so the left is left and the right is right.

13 minutes dedicated to Linus' balls.
Of a 1 hour show.
 

Just think about that folks :-p

And audio sounds kinda muffled to me,,,, might be because I have been listening to Rammstein all day. 
But no pops, whistles, etc so consistent if nothing else.


Its not my fault I am grumpy, you try having a porcelain todger that's always hard!
