Regardless of the links.

Has anybody ever brought up the insane amount of over compression/limiting used on Nicks end to the point of complete and total modulation?

yes they have, and as a result I reconfigured the processing chain. Each channel (studio, skype) has a 3:1 compression, noise gate plus limiter on the output.

Sometimes, due to level inconsistencies on the guest side - we have to apply a little more than I would like.

Nick, your podcast as great as it is....is SO much louder than any other podcast out there.

It's over compressed to the point of not only modulation but border line distortion.

You seem to be treating it like an musical audio chain....it's not.

You don't need to use a compressor, noise gate, and limiter.

How do I know this?

1. Listen to ANY other podcast out there.

2. Working in News radio and as a sound engineer.....all you need for a podcast is a limiter. Of course you could use a compressor......but just pick ONE and go with it.

Clearly you're not the only one using Skype for podcasting....but you are the only one that I can tell who's over compressing the hell out of the podcast.

Need proof?

Download 10 random podcasts from iTunes including your own (also downloaded from itunes) then throw then all through a decent speaker system.

You will notice, without any doubt, how much yours stands out.....and not in a good way.

Hope you don't take this the wrong way because I'm a huge fan and long time listener......I'm just getting tired of you almost blowing my speakers out every time the show starts.
