Today I did my very first live analysis of silent sound audio. Other than the fact that the stream started with me watching a video on how to livestream, because I didn’t realize that I was already doing it, it went great. The video is up on my YouTube page, for those who missed it, which is most of you. It was interesting enough though, that those watching stuck around for the full 2 hours and 21 minutes.
I plan to go back and timestamp important information in the description, because I really gave a rundown of my process for audio analysis and I think a lot of people would find it helpful. It isn’t the sort of information you can get anywhere else, for the most part. Believe me, I’ve searched and ended up having to figure it all out on my own.
I was ready to keep going but when I tried to copy a file from a hard drive to a USB stick on another, non-network connected computer (having learned my lesson the other day about uploading from a web-connected machine, when I lost my entire “anomalies” folder, mid-upload), my hard drive was not recognized by the machine. I connected another hard drive but had the same issue. I finally decided to take my chances and connect my drive to the computer from which I was streaming but I could not get a single one to work. I tried the drives on a Chromebook later and it doesn’t recognize them either. Not sure what happened there but even if they destroyed ALL of my files, I could just record new ones, because the weirdness never stops.
I plan to do another livestream soon. This time, I will make sure I know what I am doing, before I begin and I will come better prepared.
