NNR Reruns: “Backtracks - The OTHER 50!” (orig rel 04/28/2020)

NNR Reruns: “Backtracks - The OTHER 50!” (orig rel 04/28/2020)

April 18, 2021

Editor's Note: There's a very special reason why chose today's episode for this month's rerun. And it's not just because it originally released one year ago today....

 

....it's that because of a technical glitch on the podcast feed....you never got to hear it in its entirety.

 

Here's the story: originally a Channel F "F-isode", and originally released 04/28/2020, it was meant to supplement C1E52: "Backtracks", a focus on VGM that we played in reverse, ostensibly as last year's April Fool's gag. Only, as the intro to today's rerun reveals, it wasn't a gag after all, but instead, we were simply using the occasion of the gag as a cover for a subject too weird for many - if presented as the serious study that it was.

 

It also had the distinction of being the very first episode I had ever produced in Linux. Other than for the recordings of my voice in the end of 2019 "looking back" pair that we collectively referred to as "The Golden Episode", and most of the voices of my family in C1E51, "the birthday episode", which were all done in the Audio Evolution studio [Android] app in ChromeOS on a cheap old Chromebook, everything I had done up to this point had been done in GarageBand on macOS. I had been wanting to make the jump for some time, and with "The Other 50", I finally took the plunge, using a mix of Audacity, and at that time, Ardour 5 in Ubuntu Studio 19.10 (I've since upgraded to Ardour 6 and Ubuntu Studio 20.04).

 

I am convinced that Ardour and Audacity allow for better production, by way of cleaner, louder, fuller productions. And I'm much happier working under them than I was using the old methods. But if there's one thing they lack, it's the user-friendliness of GarageBand. And so, little things like start and end timers don't automatically move as you add files sometimes, and I have to remember to manually move them, lest some of the beginning or the end get cut off of the final production.

 

And that's exactly what happened here. The original draft of the file was missing the final, well, approx 30 minutes of the show. The trouble is, I didn't realize it until AFTER I had already uploaded it to podbean. SO, I went back in, deleted the bad file, and replaced it with the good one. But since the file names were the same, it doesn't appear to have made the swap up on the server, and if you go back to the original episode today, it still cuts off early. At least it does on the iTunes website. 

 

So, the most significant reason for today's rerun is to finally allow you to hear the entire production. If the backwards music drove you nuts, fear not: after today, I don't plan to rerun them again until we get close to April Fool's 2026, which will be a Backtracks sequel. However, if this is the first you're hearing of the Backtracks series, and you like it, definitely scroll back on the feed through the back catalog of episodes, find C1E52 "Backtracks", and give it a listen. On balance, after a year to reflect on it, I really do think the original was better than this supplement. And besides, that outro! Oh my goodness, that Outro!!!

Tracklist with timestamps below. Also, here's a link to the an Blogspot post which links to several of the Backtracks series Archive.org-exclusive SUPER BONUSES with additional content:

NNR Reruns - C1E15: “Welcome to the Disc Level Disc Level” (orig rel. 09/14/2017)

NNR Reruns - C1E15: “Welcome to the Disc Level Disc Level” (orig rel. 09/14/2017)

January 28, 2021

Today's Rerun is C1E15:  "Welcome to the Disc Level Disc Level" - our first ever "Super Sized Episode" back before they all were, AND our first ever "Nerd Noise Cross Over" marrying the concepts of a "Theme Thursday" (Sega CD Music) with a "TwoFer Tuesday" (two pieces per game) - only I totally cheated with Sonic CD at the end, treating JP/EU-only, NA-only, and universal musics as separate "twofers" resulting in this episode going out on a six track, Sonic CD "blue wave". :-)

 

Enjoy!
