The Buzz!

What is the buzz, you ask? It would have to be the redesign of the My Mac Guys Studio set-up. After recording several of the early shows on the couch, we decided to move to a work-table tech extravaganza configuration. Now Hank and I each sit opposite each other while both of us have our Powerbooks set-up for various functions. I work the ProTools/M-Box to record the shows, and Hank handles Skype and online duties.

For those of you have become accustomed to our particular brand of echo-radio (secrets to be revealed on a special CD available for purchase), you might be dissapointed to know that we have now upped the ante and gone to a two microphone set-up, abandoned recording in Amadeus II for Pro Tools 6.4, and even invested in an extra mike stand. Now, instead of sharing a single mike placed four feet away (damn, so much for secrets) we now have mikes where they belong, six inches in front of our faces.

What does this mean for the average My Mac Guys listener? Not a hell of a lot, really. You should notice a richer bass and resonance, especially when Chris coughs for the next four shows. Other than that, you should enjoy the same playful banter between Mac friends that you have come to know and hopefully love.

Show 12, our Steve Jobs Tribute show went up last week and the response has been very favorable. If you didn't get a chance to listen to it, I urge you to give it a whirl.

Show 13 is near completion in the post facility, and Hank promises to find a way to make a discussion of PIMS (Personal Information Managers) interesting. That remains to be seen, or in our case, heard. Let us know what you think by e-mail or Skype.

As for all the fans, and you know who you are (Lisa and Skippy) Hank and I appreciate the support, the e-mail, the reviews and comments. It's all been good fun!

Thanks for listening.!
Chris (My Mac Guy)
