AudioBoojum - what ho? how?
« on: June 03, 2009, 01:27:26 AM »
Umm...

Unless you have an insert point on your larynx, I'm assuming you're post-processing your Boos somewhat. I just curious as to how that's working when it comes to uploading - the iPhone app is the only way I could find to actually record and submit anything.

Enquiring minds would like to know  :?

I don't have anything helpful to offer here.  I just like the word boojum.

I'm guessing (based on some research) but iPhones (and certainly the recent iPodTouch) have microphone inputs in the 3.5mm jack and stereo line-in in the docking connector.
I assume BooJem is assembling the gold dust (unfeasibly quickly) using all the good gear and then recording it into his iPhone via the app.
AudioBoo say they plan to open the API (one day) so that other routes become available (there may already be something clever in the Mac community for this??). I suspect that AudioBoos are mono only but I could be wrong.

The answer is boringly simple I'm afraid. But I don't want to spoil the magic just yet.  ;)

The next few installments are going to up the game somewhat.  :D

Haha, I bet that's it. I thought you were on the right track Pedro, although I was starting to worry about impedance. Sigh...

Incidentally, stumbled across the lovely Tara Busch and her audioboo Casio covers yesterday. I don't want to jeopardise Jem's #4 ranking, but this is worth checking out. Kind of the polar opposite to Jem's approach to Boo-ing - just a girl, a casio, and an iphone - but equally compelling.

A bit like holding everything together with brown tape and wet string. But instead of simply replacing the broken parts, develop a string irrigation system.  :?  :?
It's not the winning or even taking part. It's the arsing about that counts.

Wow... she has a great voice. I will surely be following her.

And you know what: I would love to hear Jem doing stuff like that through AudioBoo. Tiime to pull out the Skiing song  :P

With a chance that this one turns into a Tara Busch thread I found this amazing version of Outkast's HeYa song on her AudioBoo page:

And yes, that is apparently Mellotron you are hearing !!!!

I always assumed he just recorded it on his computer (or loaded it from the iphone first) and then put it straight into protools, before uploading to twitter.

I want to know if I'm right now haha.

The only snag with that theory is the "uploading to twitter" part.
AudioBoo (not Twitter) doesn't currently provide any direct upload facility. The only way (I think) to get a Boo uploaded is to use the iPhone/iPodTouch application.
