my process

I had a backchannel email about the process used to record this show. I'll paste my response below.

===begin, paste===== recording: I use the "rec" invocation of sox. From memory, something like: rec -r 44100 ${show}-raw.flac ctrl-c to quit recording.

editing: audacity save edited file as ${show}-edited.flac

encoding: oggenc, no flags. Just "oggenc ${show}-edited.flac"

final preparation for upload: ogginfo for comment tagging in the ogg container rename files and .txt as recommended in the README: ===end, paste=====
