I love Waypoint! That being said, I listen to the podcasts mostly in my car. Patrick is consistently much louder in the mix than any other person. That means when I turn it up in order to hear austin or danielle, eventually I get blasted when patrick speaks. It’s sort of frustrating.
Does the team use any dynamic compression on the podcasts? I’m talking audio compression, not data compression.
I’m also curious about what mics everyone is using. Patrick’s is very crispy in the high end and not in a pleasant way.
Levelator could even help with the relative levels, and it’s free. The software compressor in whatever DAW you are using would be even better.
I’d be happy to get more specific if someone from the Waypoint team is interested.
