Bear in mind the HVAC thing has indeed been something we've been battling since moving downstairs. While we can't control the air itself, we can hope to contain it... or at least EQ it out.

Which we've done for the most part. With older videos downstairs, it was much more prevalent. EQ'ing it out isn't a perfect solution as at some point the talent's voices start to degrade. Simply gating also isn't ideal in this situation as the air is often louder than the voices. We're currently using a compression technique that boosts signals past a certain decibel level (like a gate), but only a range of frequencies. Redirecting and dampening the noise is also something we're working on.

Some stuff gets through. It's not ideal, but it's a lot better than it used to be. And it's something that we're always aware of, cringe if we hear it, and try to improve. There are many types of situations, mics, and voices that we deal with in that room that we have to accommodate for.

Thanks for the heads-up. I think I tracked this down to a specific hardware encoder - one that we usually use for the podcast videos. Very rarely for studio stuff, EXCEPT for the NFS QL. I'll start wrangling that encoder to see what's up.

Have you guys noticed this type of hitching in any other QLs or in-studio content (anything besides podcast studio)? If so, drop me a timecode.

Room for one more? I'll give it a shot - not sure how I'll fare.

It's probably the worst time for me as I've always got baby duty (sometimes doody) at that time on Sat. If he's chill, then great. If not, I'll abide by that 5 min rule and take my loss like a responsible father. Hell. Who knows, I might have to duck mid-match. If so, he's grounded.

Also, thanks for organizing, @l1ghtn1n!

Thanks, you guys! :D We're stupid excited and can't wait for this little guy to arrive. I have so much to teach him... like:

Don't jump in when your opponent can uppercut you.
Pizza rolls are the world's most perfect food.
Crazy Uncle Dan is allowed to act that way and doesn't get grounded because he's "special".
