Today I got a new computer from Dell. I paid about 800 bucks for it, and it is running Windows 7. It turns out my Sony Sound Forge 8 doesn't run on Windows 7, my Pain Shop Pro runs in a strange mode. I ended up loading a free version of Sony Acid xpress. I am going to upgrade to the full Sony Acid Music Studio for around $55 bucks.
I use to use Acoustica Mixcraft and its now 74 dollars and does WAY more than I need it to do. I also wanted a software I could recommend to people and Sony Acid is only $54 bucks, and its working fine (I'm using Xpress till payday). The Xpress version does not have inline effects you can add (the full version does) and that's all I'm looking for in a software. I want to to be able to
Adjust the volume of each track and create custom fade in and outs.
I want to be able to apply an effect on each track, and the master track.
Sony Acid does this, for the lowest price, and I love it.
More Podcast Money Book
I've started a podcast book about 4 times, and after reading The Fine Print of Self Publishing by Mark Levine I really want to put out a book on Podcasting. I saw how Mike Stewart of Two Buck Themes put together a book in a weekend without typing a thing. I'm writing a book on how I make money with my podcasts(s). I'm always amazed at the number of people who are waiting for a sponsor to come knock on their door when they can easily create a three or four figure easily and with a little work even more.
When you purchase the book you will get it as it comes out. If you write a comment on each section your name, podcast, and website will be listed in the book which will be sold at Amazon.com (so you get exposure for your podcast). This package gets you the book, and into the website for $14.95 (a one time fee). This fee will go up in the future as I add more information to the site (so get in now on the “bottom floor”).
