Administrative notes, I have some new equipment and I am using an iMac to now produce Timelines of Success but still switching out equipment for my field recordings. During this recording, I was going to use my field microphone but did not designate it on system preferences on the iMac but instead you are listing to my voice recorded through the built in microphone and it is a bit tinny. I was too worried about Darren’s sound because he only gets 4 to 5 mbps and did not focus on my sound and Darren sounds great!
