I think it's called okay. I was approved for theiraffiliate program for that particular company. I was trying to get with thezounds because I buy the audio gear from the okay. They didn't approve mefor these ounds. Oh yeah, that's a bunch of bums! Well, I don't know Ilike see sounds, but they don't want me to promote them. So, okay, a we're gonna set big enough. Yet Iguess not. That could be the case, but anyway, so we have tech Trivia. This week we sure do all right. Let's do it. I wake my pons being weird me. A secondbring up the old Google seat here. Yeah all right almost got all right so, aswe wait remember to visit Joey's Toly tehom store, but by your great Joey's,toly tech, er. That's right! Yes, get a wall! Fat Yeah, that's cooling down, though you hurdies, while its call the hoodies are both cool Anatha. Yes, all right, so today's topic forcategory for POLYTEC Trivia- These are fictional, elves, okay, well, Mamma.The Cos I accidentally left the facebook chat.Somehow I'm not sure what happened there. Okay anyone's no wait! Oh, Iknow what happened there. We he forgot. I forgot we're, not live streaming now, yeah! I good the fiction oils fiction ills, either from movies TVvideo games. Whatever yeah, you chose a difficult one for me because I don'tknow my Elf Ewell, but let's do it. You might know these as we'll see yeahall right. So the first Elf name starts with letter. L L pass tecon letter. Is I wait? You got it all of that plea points right there so far, awesome...

...all right. So that was a four letterword. Okay, all right! Next, Elf start of a B, a B. Let's see I'm going to pass next letter. Is You you again? I must pass next letter. Is A D E, a D D is a dog. That's why I said pass fourth letter is a d as well buddy, but vl from the Will Farrell classic L,Oh okay. I couldn't remember his name well now: YOU'LL, never forget! Yes,I've never even really watched ELP, Your Wash Elf! No it's it was. It's been a holidayclassic for like twenty years, I know, but for some reason I've never watchedit. Okay check it out yeah. I need to all right. Okay, next letter, I m sorrynext word starts with a knee. He I'll have to pass next letter is an L. Oh gonna have to pass again next letter is an r R. Oh pass next letter. Oh Oh, has next letter N A wrong. I don't know Dad I'll give it to you, because you kindof said it. It's all Ron for the war of the Rings. Oh, okay, the that's a six six liver words. Yougot two points for that. Lord of the Rings is something I've been meaning towatch as well. I had started watching years ago, but there's so much to gothrough. I never not really a fan of them like I saw like the first one ofthe third one. I think I set like the first hobbit movie, like a whateveryeah all right. Next, Elf, such of the B, aV or B B as in buttress, okay, pass next letter e e. As Next Letter R, Sarah Elf, named Bernie I'll, tell you what I was a nice guyI'll give you this one too: It's Bernard the L. Oh I'm a so close from your seeing the Santa Claus, a TimAllen. Oh yes, it was like I forgot about him. The only Altho are an adult for somereason. Remember yeah all right, so that was a seven letterword. I got five points for that. One technically enough to. I said that noI'm he's kind of placed by humans, but yeah I mean they call him a jolly allout. I guess they do don't they. I forgotabout that ar the or the sake of that taking our movie.He wasn't an Alphant. Maybe he transforms into an Elf orsomething I don't know. I guess going from human tile yeah all right. So the fifth and final l ofevening, thus with an m yes M, is in Marmalade I'm going to wait, but Elfin rode off the red. Thosereindeer was his name Martin.

I forget it's not Martin, though Ican't remember okay, yeah, so, okay, next next letter was an a a pass. Next letter, L L pass next letter e e pass next letter. Okay, now look I don't know pass next letter. I up pass bex letter t that look high. No, no all right. So lastin final letter is anh, malicete, okay, hello, Antonio, Oh Gosh. I happen same thing that happened last week andI'm glad we're not live straining. Is it working out, though it is. Idon't know what happened there, but it's working, okay, so yeah. So it'sMalahat the Dark Elf from thor of the dark roll. I ever see that one I forgotabout him right. I think it's probably that and like iron man, three areprobably the two worst marvel movies. I think Oh yeah yeah yeah, maybe all right yeah. I totally thought oabout that care all right, so you got a total of let'ssee here. Twelve points have a possible see here: Thirty, okay, but what year you got forty percentcompletion. Congratulations, Joe! Thank! So how am I sounding just out ofcuriosity? You sound okay to me, okay, because I'mactually using condenser mite here: okay, instead ofZoom Zedan, okay, mainly because I want to try to get some voice over gigs atsome point, Yasha and condense, or Mike is better for that. Am I a Po okay andI do like the sound of cadets for Mike more I have the noise oppressor on on thetas cam mix cast for so it blocks out, lie the noise of the background thatthe cadets or Mike would pick up okay, so yeah. I just wanted to make sure I soundedgood, and hopefully you guys will find. I sound good, I'm here too, hopefully,yeah all right. So today we're actually reviewing the TAZcam mix cast for podcast work station state tuned. This is Joey's totally tat, be sort to check out Joey's tollyTacoma store, get your hoodies, get your tea shirts coom an great year to show off some style, promote thepodcast jolly's holy tecoma store. Welcome back to Joey's tally tech, yourtech podcast. So today we are talking...

...about the task can mix cast for podcastwork station, so the road caster pro has been the go tofor many podcasters who won't an all in one work station to produce and recordpodcast zoom has had their offerings with the zoo pod track, PA n P. Four.In regards to the PA, I have already expressed my displeasure of them notupdated features o via the firmware as road has done with the road cast or pro.I especially wish those were that it had more fine tuning of thesound and the compression than what the zoom offered. Of course, the PA startedout. One hundred dollars cheaper than the road cast are pro, but recentlyit's gone up fifty dollars, I'm not sure it's worth that honestly, but Idid see one online store where they actually dropped the price down to fourhundred forty nine dollars, a hundred fifty oars cheaper than the road castor pro, rather than the five hundred forty nine, your fina on both sides.Now, honestly, I kind of expect to see more of this price drop soon due to thenew products. We have a Tas camp mix cast for now to be fair. The road bid,revolutionize podcasting, I think, has cans products are specifically the ministudio, US thirty, two and US forty two helped start this that had three sound pads that youcould use on there. It didn't record, I think, straight to the device thatwould record to a computer, but I think that got a lot of this started honestlyand yeah. They were mainly just audio and our faces with sound pads on it.You know an x LR Mike an put now right off the bat the Tas can mix cast. Fouris priced at five hundred. Ninety nine dollars the same as the road cast arepro. I think it may compete with the road caster fro and even beat it insome ways. So first, let's go over the specks. Of course. It records to an SD card.You could use a sixty four megabyte to gigabyte regular SD card for Gigabyteto thirty two O good bye SD card for forty, eight gigabyte to five hundred aD, twelve GIGABYTE S B X Card it records in wave files. Forty Eightkillhart twenty four bit audio two channel Stereo or fourteen channelHollywood files. So then, as far as the audio and putsgoes, we've got four EXLE TS, rather Comba Jacks Trr Jack for the phone. Ifyou're interviewing some one on the phone luthor phone as well US B for computers, phones or tablets, a Tr, a tr R S, I cannot say that inTonio Rassak on the front which takes a placeof Mike One, if you want it to and works with head sets, but like theheadset you have there, you know you can plug it straight into the front ofthis. If you had one of these, you know okay right on yeah. You can be also usethat head set to monitor your recording,...

...hmm yeah, audio outputs, of course,again. The TR RS Jack that works for both and put an output, monitor out, left and right, a at aline out Jack and four head phone jacks and KNOBS, which are corresponding tothis four headphone jacks. So operating system support when you'reconducted to a computer phone or tablet that supports MAC o s, big Sir MacasCatlin is thirteen and fourteen, and I I potos thirteen and fourteen windowsenjoyed ten and eleven while the android support from what I've read isactually coming soon. That's good okay! So it's not there yet, but it's comingsoon. It might be there already. I need to check anyway, but note that Lennoxis not officially supported. Yet I am using it on Lenox. I call firm yeah. Icould confirm it works with me and Jara Lennox here. Basically, that's how it is a lot oftimes. The operating system could use it as anaudio in her face just fine and even use the SD card reader. So that'spretty cool. Okay, that seems to be the case with mostaudio and our faces a general. I think I've never had one not worked in Linux, so hardware requirements you'll needusb to point or higher. Who doesn't have that these days, gonna yeah, I got the was high speed ones onmy computer yeah. Definitely so you've got USB three point of I've. Got SomeSB three point: O works on a card I not on my mother,bore because my mother board, so all but that's an old server mother board.Actually now operation isn't guaranteed usingthe Tas Cam driver on windows on an arm processor, so untel, MD or via who hasvia chips. Those are your best bets. The the weight is two point: Five, fivekilograms: that's what they had listed on a speck sheet o convert that pounds. I can't rememberyeah the mentions three hundred. Seventy four point: Eight by seventy one point, two, five, twohundred sixty six point: seven MELA meters Ma wants to know the size again.Don't convert that to standard from metric. I got you: okay, yeah a lot sea. So areyou acting or all that? I probably could I mean that's kind ofGoogle. It yeah because I was just expected the listener to but hey. Ifyou want to that, that will make it easier. We you do all the heavy lifting,let's see here, let's get back to where I was at gayone second year, all right. So, while Antonio looks that other features, eight sound pads, onewhich could be assigned for a vocal effect, if you really want it to beassigned S, crazy, Halian sound mute on solo buttons on every channelit set for the sound pad channel. Of course you don't need a mute button forthat talk back button which allows Mike Oneto talk to the other Mikes, even while...

...meted so it doesn't interfere withrecording grating a studio set up, or you have a few people there, but we'll talk about the problem with it,the Loll bit as we got to go through the pros and the cons here Mark Buttonthat would put marks in your fording in case you need to mark where you want toadd it Balona m. It has a stop button, a record pausebutton on this. They opted to combine the record of Pousette. Of course ithas the L C D, touchscreen mix minus that's a big feature on thesesorts of things. The pod track, eight had mixed minus on it too. You Cann'tturn mix minus off of the pod track. Pa on this, you can turn it off. That's pretty good yeah. It has affects PRI effects. I passthat's what I'm trying to say, which means if you want to have the effectuse while you're recording, but not put it intorecording, felt by past that and your audio will be playing when you'replayed it in the doll. That's no fun! Well yeah, but you can. Maybe you wanted to do something in thelive stream, for example, but not have it in the regular audio version forsome reason that yeah okay, so it has US b delay which you can change, whichis really good for live streams, because a lot of times you'll have aaudio out of scent, and people would typically have to fix that and obsstudio. For example, it could be kind of a pain while having it on thehardware side is so much better for people, so you can change the USB delay.There sounds pretty amy yeah. It came withthree different international power adapters to so they're thinkinginternational with this one, Nice. Okay, so you feel you got feel to twentyadapter. What t? Twenty adapter- I yes, I'm I'm not sure which goes with Lechhonestly. I just put them in a Dar because I don't need them. You know Igot so okay, then you did you convert those batres to standard. Yes, I did solet me go back here. I really should have done this beforehand, but I didn'tit's all right. So two point. Fifty five kilograms is five point: Six twotwo pounds all right. Then the dimensions were see here. So three hundred seventy fourpoint: eight mill meters is fourteen point: seven, five, six inches seven one point: twenty two mile metersis two point: Eight o four inches and two hundred and sixty six O sevenmometer is ten point: five inches all right. There we go so you have yourdimensions you're in the US. But let's talk about prose for thisthing and I am going to move my document back over to this because itis so small on the Monitor. I had it on so one moment and I will half this up where I want it now, it'smore comfortable, so this is already better than the podtrack. PAH As far as farmwork goes as far as updates go rather, the firstfirm were update, has already been released. It was her least back onSeptember, sixth, two thousand and twenty one shortly after this...

...mix cast for was released. That'spretty good yeah. Definitely it's a bug fix update, mainly which you know that that's kind of to be expected for afirst one. I think I think so yeah yeah and that's like the Otra, creates fromwhere I was, but the difference is it to months for zoom to come out withtheir first form were of that. Oh really yeah- and this is like justmaybe a couple of weeks for the task camp mix cast for I got you yeah. Sothat shows me how much has cam hares about updating their offering byreleasing this update for the mixed cast for soon after the initial a leaseand task cam is showing also that they're open to improving and addingfeatures via firmware, unlike zoo. The real target for this is the thereal target. Competition for this is the road cast or pro sound pads. Sampans could be colorcoded easily us that you can color code them on thepod track DA and on the road cast or pro on the pod track, PA. It was kindof ICAL color to pod them and act. I saw one reviewer and I told told meknow you could call or code those right. He didn't even know yeah, but that's because I kind of hidethat feature you had to it's weird on the Patrick Pa you have to, rather thanin the San pad editor. You have to go to the way file itself and tell thecolor there. It's not very intuitive, that's so fun yeah! It's like that's,not where you'd think you'd, edit, that and N on here. It's like right on thescreen. You know: Okay, well, that sounds handy yeah, so sound pads couldbe color coded and, unlike on either the road cast or pro or Patre p at theSan pads are laid out at the bottom of the LCD screen too, with the names ofthe sounds on each path. So if you can't remember what's on apad well, it's written right out, for you that's pretty hand. Ah Definitelyyou have eight banks for its sounds of the sound pad bore up to sixty foursounds lot of sounds yet now. Can you use asixty four sounds well that gets into the cons a little later. We'll talkabout that sin. This thing it's well built it's abelt like a tape. It's not metal like the road cast or pro, but it's a veryhard plastic. If I hit you in the head with it, it will probably hurt worsethan the pod track, the at what you think. So, yes, I know so who get more hurt them here. You that's a good question because he mightpunch me right in the nose or something, but I I wouldn't hit you in the headwith that or or anything rather what it I no. I may not a violent person if not but yeah, so this thing is tough. Itcould take a beating, but sliders feel very good moving them up then down and the Mike Settings are quitedetailed now not as detailed as so roadcart or brow, but more detailed than on the contractpait for sure. So Mike Settings you have first thetone section, it could be deep, med, bright or you can have manual controland I'm not going to get into all of...

...the manual controls here, because Ithink that 'll go over a lot of people's heads, but you na for those of you who want to get thatmanual control. You've got it. You know Batcha yeah again the compressor youhave soft compression, hard compression and Manuel or processing you have the S or whichkind of sovereigns of s sounds when people aretalking. I see, is you have the noise suppressor which Ihave? The noise oppress our own right now and I have to be very careful aboutwhere I'm placing my mouth in front of the microphone. I because it can reallycut out at a moment where I'm going to re record. You will not hear it of thefinal recording, but I'm going to rerecord that, because Antonio told meit sounded a little garbled forwards to end. You know this well is like asecond heart's been so fine ever since then yeah. Definitely so the noisesuppressor works very well, but you do need to be very careful with the noisesuppressor settings as it could cause some speech to be put out. Also, if youdon't have the low cut filter said just right, you'll have boys was whenspeaking. The whole idea of the low cut filter isto cut out that noise, but if you don't set it right, you'll still have thenoise, as if you set it up to high, might make, in my opinion, with thismicrophone made the voice sound, really Tinny, andI didn't like that, okay, but I spent a good amount of time the other day justplaying with those settings to get it thus about where I wanted it. I stillteel like it's perfect, but it's way better than it was. I just keep working at it. I'm sureyou'll figure it out yeah. Definitely- and I think it's harder with acondensor Mike- and I really wanted to test us out with a condenser my tobecause with the dynamic my the noise oppressor was pretty amazing,I feel like. Could that's our mikes need it more Goshal if you're in an untreated room, Oh yeah, for sure yeah ducking that has a duck in feature. Sothat means like, if you have music clean on one channel and then I starttalking, the music will lower on volume automatically that's good. Okay, yeah, there's the effect settings on theMIKES. You can turn on reverb and or change the pitch of your voice. Gonna,like I'm doing right now, sound like one of the chip, monks ofhelium. I am one of the Chetniks on Alien, Oh, no, which one no I'm not but anyway, so yeah. There's that and another great thing about this, and oneof the standout features not really in the hardware itself, but the softwarethat is available for it. The Tas Cam od cast editor. It's a free doll,digital audio work station that will work with other audio interfaces, butespecially made for the Tas camp mix. Cast for this also is a software youll use tomanage sound pads and I'm God to talk about that soon as well,...

...especially as the Linux user. We will also talk more about this software leader. I'veactually decided to separate that to a second half of this episode. Let's get into the cons of this thing, all right check him out so yeah thecons. Okay, we regarded the sound pads when you're recording you're limited towhatever bank you have selected. You can't change the banks, while recorded,so you only have eight sounds available: seven, if you're using one of them forthe vocal effect. If you don't want to use the task, canpodcast editor, it can be more challenging. You'll have to directlyrecord and save it there and you'd had to edit the sounds and cut out anythingbefore the beginning of it or after the endingof what you lay. You need to do this or an audio editor like audacity on yourcomputer or other device. The podcast editor, on the other hand, can justload any sound fowls. You have to the sound pads. No questions asked. I thinkit has to be a way father. I haven't tried importing any p three Sa the sand. Padsare saved an Pamala on the SD card. This is a type of XML file. If you're aweb developer, don't know what a exol fall is it's in es similar to html, butyou make up your own tags and stuff, but this is a specific subset of Xibe,I believe not making up your own tags, but thus is it that anyway, you couldtheoretically edit this pou file and point to the way files in there on the SD card. I tried this as a Linuxuser and though I am pretty sure I did it correctly. Idouble check for Typos and everything I I still wed mess up the sound padslike I would dedit the foul and then one of the sounds would like stopworking or something you know, and I don't know why, but that that's more of my position asa Linux user. If you're on windows or mat you can use a task, can podcastutero problem. You know Gotcha, okay, yeah so in when does our mat, like I said,you'd have no problem with this, but as a Linux user, your gods have to run theTask Ham, podcast editor through a virtual machine. I use overt man withKavi and Kemia, or the windows emulation, and then I share my mixedcast for with windows. So for Linux users, myself or like myself, ratherthere's, not a really good way to assign, sounds to the sound pads asediting the Amalfi, even if, if it seems like you're edited in the correctway, let's go in to bring things at least for my experience. If anyoneknows how to edit it properly, please let me know because I would love toknow. I would love to write some sort of program or script that would edit these sound, pads and Lennox so and then noise suppression, while it'sreally good, it takes a lot of fiddling around with to soundd good. But I don'tthink that's a fault specifically of...

...this. I think that's the case with anysort of noise, cold suppression. You do that's the case- can guys impressionalnobs studio, okay, well yeah, so it takes a lot of filing around. If youget it sound good at all that I mean that's. If you get it soundgood at all, it's something that you really had to take time to get soundright, okay, so yeah! So before you go to our next freak, Ineed to mention that the mix cast for is very picky about which us be born.Your plugging into way connected to a computer, do not connect it to a USB hub or a USBexpansion card. You will want to connect this directly,but you to a USB port correctly on your mother board. I initially had thisplugged into one of my expansion cards and I was getting a lot of cracklingfrom any audio that was played on the computer. As a result, I went. I then decided to plug directly into the Mother Board USB port, because Iremembered someone else had some Simmar as she is, and it was fine. The crackLane went away. That's good, yeah, Hey Joey here in the editing process.One other con I forgot to mention is that I noticed with my wirelesskeyboard after I got the Tas Cammies, for I was having a lot of typing errors.I would miss keys a lot of time and then I'd get a lot of repeating keys atfirst. I thought it was by keyboards batteries Ding. So I put new batteriesin that did not fix the problem, so it seems like this problem happened rightafter I got the task can mix cast, for I think there might be a lot of interference with the blue tooth andthe wireless technology of Mike Keyboard. I could be wrong, but it doesseem like there's some sort of interference going on all right. That'sthe last count I wanted to get in that. I forgot during our recording earlierback to the rest of the podcast. So after this ad break we'll be talkingabout the task Cam podcast editor stay to, and this is Joey's totally tact.Your Tech Hod cast all right and we are back. Let's talkabout that. Taz Cam podcast editor. Shall we tally? Let's show yes all right, so thetask camp podcast editor. It is really one of the big features, but not partof the hardware itself. That's why the B big features of thetask cam mix cast for now. You can use this with any other audio interface,but it's really meant to be used with a tas cat mix cast for right. Okay, I getit yeah in fact, auto detects when you have theTas Camaca for plugged in and will offer to read from your SD Card or themix cast rather and...

...there's an icon on the doll that will pop up when your Tas chemics cast forus bug. In that it's a real lie in it won't pop up. You can still add itfiles for other places, but I know that it's really well integrated with a task Kami castfour more than evening, so the podcast editor and Paul Pottywave files right off your mix cast forth and load it into the editor,along with Undo and Redo, which all would have those you have split,combine copy, paste and Sert delete, remove, read a mute we gon play andmulti select. You also have a time stretch function.So if you want those of voices or not voicees, you wantthose audio tracks to be stretched out a bit or strong and much faster. Likethis, you know yeah, you could do that so yeah allows ye a stretch or speed upany recording without affecting the pitch. Actually, so you know, that'sreally cool, so that's like if you really want to beable to talk faster in a there's, a magic wand, a thing thatwill by some noise removal and normalization but really helps out inthe recording. If you right click on some audio, thenyou can change the gain and make a louder or softer. And, of course, youcan fade in by Click in a dragon from the top left of each piece of audiointo the audio or fade out from the top. Right are the same thing. Of course you could change the volumeas well with the spiders that are, on the left hand, side of the screen. The sound pad editor there's got to belike eight blocks of a top right corner. If I remember correctly, you click that and then you can edityour soumas and it really lets you easily load at it and save the soundpads. You've changed the color of the sand pads and the editor to. If youwan't, Okay Yeah, so you could do that either on the excat, the podcast editor whichever one you want. So that's pretty cool. When exported your project, you couldexport to wave M P three or MP four files. You can also export as aHollywell or export each individual track to its own way file. Okay, yeah! So if you have an audioeditor, that does it do polly wave, but you like to use it while you could useas chemic cust or you can do as a task, an podcast stendard or rather to all that in and then sped out separate audio files that you can import intoaudio eter. You ane is that's pretty handy. You can also save as either sixty bitor twenty four bit audio wady for the Audio. You definitely want for a video, so you can do loudness normalization,be faulty to the Getafe lofts to make sure each episode your accord is at astandard volume. So your listeners don't have to keep changing the volumewhen they're listening...

...and that's one thing, a lot of began or podcasters and amateurpodcasters. They don't know how to normalize their volume properly. Ohreally, yeah, definitely even than audacity has a normalizedfunction and I think they've added more loudness normalization function. Ithink, but for a long time it just wasn't there really yeah, so regular normalization was but loudness normalization was not so for Linux users, you can run, hascam the task him podcast editor with wine. However, at least for me, aported from the box cast Ford at work, nor did edited the sound pats. I tried it at the text the books castfor and the BIXA for, even responds when you try, but it will feltimportant so running, taskin, podcast, editor andwindows, ten and a virtualized environment work. For me, I hadproblems with editing the virtual machine, not really a surprise of myolder hardware, but I was able to save the project to an external drive andthen import back into the task camp. podcast editorthat I had installed through wine on Lenox. I edited the project with noproblem there and at least on by machine. There was some crack Lad webplaying back, but that does not happen into your final MP. Three a way fine,but you just got to get you set. I've not tested the podcast editor on a nonvirtualized environment. So I doubt the crackling: What happenedthere? So you know, let me know if it does,but I really doubt it at Chioh my iphone. Unfortunately, I'vebeen a able to connect with a tag task camp podcast editor, but I'm using anadapter cable right now. I think I may be better off using theUS BC to lightning cable. I imagine it's a similar issue that I'vementioned when plugging into the USB ports of thecomputer. You know it might at a more direct indention. I understand okayyeah, so I need to buy a over cable for that and then theoretically, it shouldwork. But I did read someone's comments on you tube on a review that they couldhave connect either and from what I understand they were using. They wereconnected directly with Dan in the Dator, so there might be some problemswith iphone. I don't know that luck. Can it be yeah, but it'sreally hard to say I'll have to test out more myself. Okay! Well, let us so happen and itcould be. I mean I mean as an no Niphon Eight, which is a bit older. Now maybeit doesn't like iphone as possible yeah. So in conclusion the TAD can makes castfor even with its flaws for my perspective, hills the Zoom Patria andcompetes well with the road cast or grow. This will help you have a greatprofessional sounding podcast easily. It works well with windows and Mac.Linux hasn't officially supported, but you could make it work for you if youput in the work and don't mind either dull, booting or running windows in avirtual environment. The problems that...

I do see can be fixed and firmer,updates, and so far taskin appears to be very open to doing that. All right. So, overall, you feel like this is a better option for you. OhYeah. Definitely- and you know, I've been very happy with howmuch more I can bold the sound of the voice. You know Gotcha yeah, so I feel, like you know, for livestreams once we get that work in properly. I don't know what's going onwith that, but once we get the live streams working properly, that's God tohelp have a very good sound of the live stream. Nice, okay, yeah, so you know we don't even have to do asmuch editing and post with the vocal of post processing. You know I know you'rea big fan of that yeah. I know any time I could save on that. It's really goodWese yeah. After the break we're going to have our current events state tune.This is Joey's totally tech. Your Tech podcast welcome back you're listening to Joey'stally, tach, your tech podcast. Did you miss us? I mesas awesome yeah, so Tesla is letting non Tessa Electricvehicles use it supercharger network. For the first time, ten supercharger stations and theNetherlands have been made available to non Tesla. Electric Vehicles Busk hasWalton to open up hessle super charge, our network to other electric fehlisother European countries are likely to follow before tess. What opens up thesuper chargers and the US to other viages as a company is a proprietaryconnector here in North America, non TESTA vehicles of North Americaneed at a doctor to use tussle superchargers, who, you think is looking like tessosletting other cars use their user supercharger network yeah. Definitely,unfortunately, they have a propietario connection here in the states but yeah.You know. I think it's good that Elon Musk is open to let another letterbe head. Well, he is it yeah one nice, fellow yeah. I know right all right, so the final story of theevening, what exactly is the metaverse so, as you may have heard, facebookrecently changed. Its company named to Meta, have also announced a newinteractive space called the metaverse, but many have wondered: What exactly isthe metaverse? What exactly can they expect? So the MEIVES is a virtual world wherepeople can meet and interact with one another, much like other interactivevirtual spaces such as second life or playstation home users, as the veiverswill be able to create a unique avatar and exist within the mede universe,while playing games or meeting and hanging out with friends, new accessories are being developed inorder to make the mid experience more immersive, the accessories we canexpect to see our senses for your freet that can simulate running chairs thatmove and spin with your Avatar and...

...tables that allow users to simulateflight. So what do you think of the metaphors?So I mean I don't know. I think facebook wasplaying on doing this anyway before the home meditant I mean the name change. I think they've got some idea, it's going tohelp them avoid a lot of the scrutiny there facing. I don't think it is atall I mean I think, just it psychologically.I mean this is a kind of a comment tactic where you know companile changenames to kind of like kind of rebrand their image so yeah I mean. I knowfacebook has been under fire a lot in the past few years. Just for, like youknow his information- and you know stuff like that, yeah, but I don't knowI mean I think they're trying to kind of focus on this new menever direction.It sounds kind of like radio player one did you ever see that I've not, but I've been wanting towatch it, but you know what it's like: it's like.You Strap in all this. You know VR crap and then inside the game, and then youcan raise people and do all this other stuff. So yeah yeah, I really yeah. I guess they could be trying toshift the overall direction from what I understand. FACEBOOK is going to remainas a service under the Meta company Yeah I gossey still havefacebook as a service is a subside makes sense because I mean, like youknow, face because, like a facebook Instagram, you know oculist, you saidthey have like. What's that to, or is that someone else yeah they have what'sup? I mean it's kind of like when Goga announced they had a parentcompany called alphabet. You know I got ca yeah as I originally they woregoogle, but then they created a parent, a be called alphabet. facebook toyedthe same thing really Gotcha Gasha, especially when Google on stuff, likeyou tube, and what not you know, I guess it makes sense, you're kind oflike baking, Google tone thing, but it's a Fi alphabet umbrella more.Lastly, yeah, okay, all right! Well, that's all! I haveanything else you want to have before you go. Ah, I think we're good allright. Well, this has been Joey's, tally, tech, your Ta Podcast, I've BeenJoey Cage and I've been Antonio Gera. We will catch you next time, Adios.
