Jeff, you need to fix something with your microphone. Same thing happened during the Destiny vid. Random audio drops, etc.

Hey... a Jar time...

Also you mic is still borked Jeff.

Calling it, Jeff plays as alcoholic father Jar-Jar Drinks in the new star Wars

Yeah sound is kinda screwed up but I am pumped anyway. I like these videos a lot.

A Shure pop filter. Jeff isn't fucking around.

Also, I think you've got a really overactive gate or something on the audio. It's clicking and taking a split second to kick in every time there's even a little break in your speech.

EDIT: Never mind, it just seems to be bad cables. What, your big shot friends at CBS won't give you new mic cables or something?!

Thank you!

If you ever find yourself in need of another jar, Jeff, hit me up and I'll mail you my spare bedside jar.

It's like the audio is late picking up for the first half a second you start talking

Audio sucks. :(

Yeah, please do this!

Posted by The_Nubster

The mic seems to be making the audio skip. Bummer. But the quality is way better!

The audio man.

Edited by zenmastah

Yeah, the audio is still clipping.


Posted by Fattony12000

@Jeff duder, cut out all of those shit audio drops, son. Are you trying to run some kind of compressor, gate or levelling software/hardware through this thing? Because it's cutting out entire words and sentences, ya goof!

Aw yeah, jar time!

So the sound is messed up for everyone else right? It skips every so often just making it kinda listenable but awkward.

That audio skip makes me want to claw my own face off it is so annoying.

Posted by CaptNCoke

Aww yeah Tegra and Bunny!

Posted by depecheload

Audio skipping again? No excuse for that this time.

Edited by bybeach

Seems just fiine to me. Jeff is not a person I bounce with always, but that is what makes his mini raps pretty interesting. I tend to listen to partials of these question answer video bits.

Posted by Winternet

I go boom, boom, boom, you go bam, bam, bam?

Edited by jkz

Great video as usual Jeff! Probably worth checking that there's no compressors / limiters / gates being applied (either hardware or software based)? Just a noice cancelling feature with too high a threshold?

Audio's tough =/

Edited by Ravelle

All the videos seem to not work great for me all the sudden, is anyone else having problems with it?

Posted by Wondeboy

does the audio get any better, or is it intermittent throughout?

Posted by Patman99

If I had to take a guess, it sounds that the audio drops generally happen when Jeff speaks quietly (or at least quiet for the mic). You can see this when he moves his head away from the mic and still tries to talk. On some words, it gets through clearly, on others it doesn't. This could mean that the gain has to be turned up a little bit. When I encountered a similar problem (slightly more random audio drops) was when the fuse on the mixing board blew up. I had to change the fuse and it worked a little better. Anyway, I could be totally wrong, I'm no microphonist.

This shit is unlistenable.

I'm gonna bust a MOBA nut on some next gen consoles

Posted by CaLe

Everything is understandable. The audio clipping isn't nearly as bad as people are making out.

Posted by Catarrhal

Aww yeah Tegra and Bunny!

One other person got the reference. Nice.

Also, the correct spelling is "Tigra."

Boy, this audio clipping stuff sure is JARring. Hahaha that's a bit of a joke for y'all duders.

Edited by fr0y0

$50 webcam or $200 studio equipment, there's something about Jeff, his house and microphones.

I just remembered that the Bombcast earlier this year with skype calls etc was totally fine, audio wise. No drop-outs there.

Same here, I hit play and they just kinda fade darker and then that's it.

Bum Fights was not cool, Jeff.

Sir you cannot board this flight with these boom jars.
