Illudium Podcast #003

Monday, May 8th, 2006

This show's theme is about me needing a new job. The song selection highlights various aspects of my situation. Perhaps you can improve your own financial situation by referring me for a job at your company.

This show, like Illudium Christmas I and show #2, were produced without re-encoding the songs, except for the voice-overs. "But wait", you say, "I subscribe to Thing of the Week. Code Monkey isn't VBR!" Excellent observation, grasshopper. I ran all of the files through MP3Packer before joining them with MP3 Merger and tweaking with MP3DirectCut. MP3Packer converts CBR files to the smallest VBR file that can contain the data. It can also convert VBR to CBR, which is useful for devices that don't handle VBR. The VBR conversion serves two purposes: First, for technical reasons, VBR is better for direct editing. Second, it allows for a correct VBR header so your time display is correct. MP3 Merger joins the files together. It seems to be abandonware, and I'd like to find an open-source replacement for it. I use MP3DirectCut to remove unwanted sounds, adjust pauses, and tweak the level of the songs. MP3DirectCut also fixes any sync errors and supplies an accurate VBR header.
