I just wonder where they came up with the term "sweeper" for a produced piece of audio that is played between 2 songs? Perhaps its because these are played in a long sweep of non-stop music. Our friends across the pond call the same piece of produced audio a jingle. Well no matter what you call it here is one of them.....

Part of the reason for my blog is to showcase my talents as a voice over guy and production guy. When your on my blog and you see white circle with a ">" inside of it, this is the "BigMouthStudio Wimpy Player" click on the ">" to hear audio. Todays audio is my latest spot for internet radio... Here we go!

I found this great website that you can store audio clips for all to find. This website is called SoundBoard. This is just another FREE tool to use to get your service found. You never know when you might need to use the free player to embed on your favorite blog. Check it out!

Now that 2008 is firmly in command, it's time to think about upgrades to the infrastructure here at BigMouthStudio.com. This time around it will be a hardware upgrade. I think that a compressor / limiter & an exciter would be an excellent addition to BMS. The problem is, "What do all those little knobs do"? How do you keep the sound that you've got and fully use the new equipment to enhance that sound, when you have not a clue on where to set all those knobs? Trail and error? If you ask Alan he will tell you that I am the "King of Warm" and that I have found that "One" thing that makes my current set up work. Ah yes all those little knobs! On top of that how do I rationalize the cost -vs- the effect that this hardware would have on my work flow in the studio. Where can I get a micro loan? I don't think that I qualify for Kiva.org, Loans that change lives. Perhaps we will have to wait until 2009, Or if could get 40 people to give me $25 each, then I would have enough money to upgrade BMS... notice I said give... not loan! :-)

Everyone makes resolutions for the new year and for the most part they are not worth the paper that they are printed on. I have decided to make a difference this year and I have found a way to help others $25 at a time. Kiva is a website that matches people with a few dollars to spare with business owners in Africa, South America and other less fortunate countries that need loans to expand there business. In most cases these businesses need $300 to $1,500 and would not be able to get a loan the way you and I do. So if you can spare $25 to make a difference in somebody life check out Kiva "loans that change lives"! My first $25 goes to a Taxi Driver in Uganda Anatona Kakooza who needs repairs made to his taxi to continue in business. BMS Lender Page at Kiva!
