    Great recording. Again, a lot of very useful information.

    Thanks, Eric

    Hey Eric,
    Somehow you really need to fix the audio quality on the calls. In both real time and later on the recorded sessions I’m always having to adjust the volume as you speak as you are always fading in and out.

      RJ –
      Thanks for your feedback. I will see if there is anything I can do to process the audio to make the levels more even. I am talking on a headset, so there’s not much I can do to improve the basic audio (it’s not like I’m moving closer then further from the microphone). However, it is possible that post-processing might improve things.
