First I'd like to thank you all for your patience as we continue the process of bringing the ARTC podcast back.
Second I'd like to ask you to be patient a little longer.
The archival process is complete...sort of. We've captured all the recordings from the original DAT files that we have on hand. There are a number of shows missing, but I'm not going to let that stand in the way of the podcast returning. Those shows can be found and dealt with as a separate project.
What we're doing now is a two-step process.
1) We're taking the raw DAT files and editing them. What typically happens with our live shows is that someone starts the recorder early so we don't forget and then it runs through the mic check and sometimes longer. We're cutting all that out. We're also removing intermissions and other dead air. And we're trying to fix other technical glitches when possible.
2) We're filling in the blanks on all the administrative information to do with these shows. Dates performed, times, cast and crew, scripts performed, authors, musicians, Foley artists, etc. Luckily most of this is included with the recorded credits.
Once we have both of those things then we'll be able to bring the podcast back in full force. Why didn't we do all that before we started? Good question...I think the answer is that we were too eager to get started and thought we could do both at the same time.
Thanks again everybody...we promise we haven't forgotten about you.
In the meantime, keep checking the website and don't forget about Audible.com. Great ways to make sure that the audio drama you love keeps coming.
There is Adventure in Sound!
